Articles from 2006

3-22-06  A Time for Heresy  - Bill Moyers argues that American democracy is threatened by perversions of money,
power, and religion. Money has bought our elections right out from under us. Power has turned government "of, by,
and for the people" into the patron of privilege. And Christianity and Islam have been hijacked by fundamentalists who
have made religion the language of power, the excuse for violence, and the alibi for empire. This is an extensive and
clear examination of the hard truth of the fundamentalist Christian religious jihad.

Articles from 2005

9-17-05  Koran Verse 9-11 Hoax  - There has been a "Koran 9:11" email hoax spreading across the web for the
past 3 years that says - in short - that the Koran, verse 9:11 predicts that the rise of Osama Bin Laden, the attack on
the USA on 9-11, and the American responses of attacking Afghanistan and Iraq.  This is a Hoax, a lie and is intended
to foster Christian & American fear, suspicion and hatred for the Koran and Muslims.  This hoax is an abomination.

2-15-05  Pharisee Nation - Blessed are the Peacemakers?  Not according to many Americans - who are embracing
a Culture of War, yet calling themselves devout followers of Christ.  Have we become like the Pharisees?  Do we side
with and idolize the ultra rich, the ultra elite, pro-war radical right wing "Christian" conservatives.  What do you think?

Articles from 2004

11-15-04  I'll Ask Them, Jesus  Here is an  excerpt from this great article: "Jesus has some serious questions for us
all about morality and the apparent contractions of using 'religion' to advance a sordid agenda of hate and
arrogance...If a certain 'segment' of our populous thinks it has the upper hand with morals they must 'walk the walk'
Jesus is liberal: forgiving, loving and steadfast.... For the Republican Party to claim itself a party of Jesus-like values
soils the historic reputation of a man like Jesus as well as Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Buddha and Mohammed.

8-30-04   God Is Not a Republican.  Or a Democrat.   Christian leaders refute Religious Right's claim that Bush is
God's candidate.  Rev. Jim Wallis, editor of Sojourners magazine, explained: "When poverty has risen each of the
past three years - that's a religious issue. The war in Iraq - that's a religious issue. Taking care of the environment -
that's a religious issue." Rev. Wallis added, "This behavior by the Religious Right -- ordaining George W. Bush as
'God's candidate' - is theologically outrageous. How did the faith of Jesus come to be known as pro-rich and pro-war?
They've tried to hijack our faith - it's time to take it back."  Also says God is not a Democrat!

8-3-04  A Liberal Idea.  Rev. Jesse Jackson rejects oxymoron "Conservative Christians" & supports liberal vision of
Jesus and liberal Christians.  Think about it: A conservative Christian is a contradiction in terms. Christ wasn't a
conservative. He fed the hungry simply because they were hungry. He didn't require that they go to work first. He
healed the sick, simply because they were sick. He ignore them because they had no insurance, or let the drug
companies gouge them on prices. Jesus is a liberal; Herod was the conservative.

7-17-04  Who Would Jesus Torture?  President George Bush came to office on a "Christian" platform - and yet,
we now know that he has sanctioned and blessed ghastly torture, physical abuse, and the willing & knowing violation
of the Geneva Conventions, international Human Rights laws and agreements and more.  We now know about the
rampant and Presidentially sanctioned torture at both the US Military prison at Gantanamo Bay, Cuba, the Bagdad
prison of Abu Gharib and the a virtual Gulag of US military prisons in Eastern Europe. How does this square with the
teachings of Jesus Christ.

3-15-04  Bush and Religion: Anti Christian, Polarizing and Ugly.  Dr. Gerry Lower writes about how the Bush
administration has coerced virtually every branch of western Christendom in America back into the fold of Old
Testament fundamentalism, the entirety of which is pre-Christian in origin, largely anti-Christian in content and
historically anti-Christian in practice. Bush's polarization has driven American Christendom into two
diametrically-opposed camps.
