No, not the biblical end times, though Christianity is heavily woven into the American fabric, but internal symtoms of the breakdown of the system. As the snake eats it tail, it consumes itself, even as it thinks it is winning. The two wings of the main political party, the republicans and the democrats, no longer bash each other for media attention, but instead have turned to internal attacks, feeding on their own and greatly affecting faith in the system. And faith is really what it comes down to, for the system would collapse completely without faith that it was moral and just. But, that faith is waning as the main faith of the American public, Christianity, also continues feeding on its own. The mere fact that there are about 50 different versions of Christianity confirms that someone has got it all wrong. In fact, if there is only one true God, then there is only one true religion in support of that God. And I think it quite likely that not only are 49 out of the 50 wrong about their interpretations of Christ and his teachings, but that all 50 are wrong.
At the top of the first page of WorldNetDaily today, you find an article describing an attack, from one Christian to another, that took place this weekend on the Fox News Network, between Julie Banderas and a Chrisitian Minister from the Westboro Baptist Church of Topeka, KS. Here is an excerpt from the story…
Banderas engaged in a heated, rapid-fire, name-calling exchange with Phelps-Roper, which included:
Banderas: "The Bible says 'the fear of the Lord is hatred of evil,' [from the Book of] Proverbs. 'Pride and arrogance and the way of evil and perverted speech I hate.' Perverted speech like yours: 'God hates fags.' You are preaching absolute B.-., and you know the final letter."
Phelps-Roper: "If you don't tell them that this nation is full of idolatry, full of adulteries …
Banderas: "Full of insane people like yourself, ma'am."
Phelps-Roper: "You're proud. You're proud of your sins. You can't do enough sinning. You think 'gay' pride, bimbo. You have sinned away your day of grace."
Banderas: "OK, you are an abomination."
Phelps-Roper: "America is doomed. America is doomed. … Before your eyes, missy, you're gonna see the destruction of America."
Banderas: "If America is doomed, then why don't you get out? Why are you in this country? Why are you an American? Are you an American?"
Phelps-Roper: "I am exactly where my God put me to tell you plainly, that you are going to hell, and there's nothing you can do about it."
Banderas: "Why don't you take your church to another country, then, ma'am? Thank you so much. You should not be proud to be an American, and thank you. Good-bye."
Interestingly, Joseph "Murder a Muslim for the Messiah" Farah, a rabid faux Christian in his own right, and who seems to think that Christ carries an M-16 and is a general in the US Army, put this article at the top of the Monday morning page. I am not sure what he is trying to say to us, other than approach all Christians with the caution reserved for vipers.
AS the system further degrades and people become more desperate to impose their values on everyone else, expect to see more fireworks. Pop some corn and enjoy the show!!!
"Recently I was reading somewhere or other about an Italian curio-dealer who attempted to sell a 17th century crucifix to J.P. Morgan. Inside it was concealed a stiletto. What a perfect symbol of the Christian religion." — George Orwell
"It is remarkable that among all the preachers there are so few moral teachers. The prophets are employed in excusing the ways of men." — Henry David Thoreau
