The Christian Religion of the Republican Party: A Free Pass to Sin
As if any additional blatant proof was needed that Republican Leaders are milking religion and using the poor naive pigeon who voted for them by covering up their actions as being true to the scriptures here it is.
One of the most nauseating Republican Leaders, Newt Gingrich, makes a Mockery of Religion again and again.
Here is his scam and many of his fellow Republican Leaders have been following the same sinful path of lies and deception for a long time while simultaneously flaunting their Religious beliefs and professed adherence to them.
The last episode is the following.
Newt Gingrich cheated on his last wife and lied to her just as he lied to a number of other people along the way. He then appeared on a Right-Wing Republican Christian radio show to be absolved of his misdeeds.
These events are happening in 2007 in the richest, and in theory the most developed, country in the world whose President is George Bush.
President Bush is by his own acknowledgement a deeply religious man and in his own words, ?my hero is Jesus.?
He is a staunch Republican and has created the department of "Faith Based Initiatives" in the White House. This is a complete violation of the United States Constitution because it could reverse two hundred years of separation of Church and State and turn the USA into a Theocracy with limited religious freedoms.
There is no doubt that President Bush claims to be and acts as if he is the most Religious American President ever.
Nonetheless, devoted Christian President George W. Bush lied to the American People in order to invade Iraq, and his policies triggered the deaths of more than 3,000 Americans and more than 50,000 Iraqis.
Devoted Christian President Bush condoned TORTURE as a viable means to the ends he desired.
Where in Biblical Scripture did this deeply religious President find in the teachings of Jesus that, ?In order to lead your flock you should lie to them and lead them into a war where they will be killed and mangled for an unjust cause while at the same the inhabitants of the country they invade will be left in utter fear and horrible misery caused by previously unimagined levels of daily violence and disruption of their former lives.? This is the Republican Party?s perversion of religion.
Another Republican perversion of religion is the reactivation and encouragement to sin at will.
Perpetual absolution as used by Newt Gingrich and the radio evangelist pastor Dobson is a remarkable scam falsely based on religion.
Newt Gingrich is one of the most immoral and nauseating politician in recent History.
Newt Gingrich went on an Evangelical Radio show program hosted by Pastor Dobson and confessed that he had sinned by cheating on his wife, asked for forgiveness and was absolved of his transgression and sin by Pastor Dobson.
This could only encourage Newt Gingrich to cheat and lie as he has done in the past and in all of his marriages. His own transgressions occurred even as he sought to impeach President Clinton based on immoral behavior with a White House intern. This information was disclosed by former Congressman Tom Delay a former who once was one of Newt Gingrich?s allies.
Newt Gingrich is the only cheating politician in America who should not have been absolved so easily because he not only cheated on his first wife, he cheated on her and left her while she was fighting for her life undergoing cancer surgery. If that was not enough he left his wife and children destitute and managed to evade payment of alimony or child support.
He is an incredibly despicable man, but he is a Republican Christian who managed to get away with grave immoral behavior. He eventually married a second time, cheated again and was absolved for cheating again and got married for the third time
This is horse trading of the worst sort.
Right Wing Republican Christian Evangelical pastors are eager to give free passes to sin if the sinners promote their bigotry and forward their agendas to reverse the separation of Church and State.
Right wing Republican Christian Conservative?s interpretation of religion is the opposite of the teachings of the Christian religion.
Their reading and interpretations are:
ALL MEANS ARE ACCEPTABLE TO FORWARD OUR AGENDA OF A RELIGIOUS STATE
THIS INCLUDES RACISM, BIGOTRY, INTOLERANCE AND CHARACTER ASSASSINATION.
I never saw that statement in the New Testament which is the Gospel of Jesus Christ and of course defines Christianity.
What I saw and understood in my reading of the New Testament is that All Means ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE.
The REPUBLICAN CHRISTIAN RELIGION has fathered fundamentalists and extremists who resort to assassinations of Doctors who follow the law in offering women the right to choose as well as bombing clinics that offer the same choice. These crimes are generated by the Republican Christian Religion.
The FUNDAMENTALIST MUSLIM RELIGION has fathered extremists who kill and torture sometimes by drilling HOLES with an electric drill in the articulations of prisoners before killing them. These crimes and many more horrifying crimes are generated on a grand scale by fundamentalist Muslims.
ONLY BAD THINGS and NOT ONE GOOD THING happened in the USA during the most openly religious rule of President George W. Bush.
ONLY HORRIFYING THINGS and NOT ONE GOOD THING occurred in Iraq when Clerics assumed Power through a mockery of Democracy.
The REPUBLICAN CHRISTIAN RELIGION has played an important part in the lowering of moral values in the USA by giving free passes to sin to the Republican political leaders as well as preaching intolerance, racism and Character assassination.
Never in the History of the USA was Religion so perverted by the government, under a Republican Administration which is bound to honor and protect the Constitution. The Executive Branch is supposed to protect the US Constitution by enforcing the separation of State and Church and not to destroy the Constitution by setting up a ?Department of Faith Based Initiatives? in the White House which is bent on taking the USA back to the middle ages when the Church was the power that controlled the state and when Religious wars were constant.
The Only thing you can trust The Republican party to do is to: CORRUPT: Religion, the US Constitution, Patriotism, all values dear to the American Citizen.
Historical Appendix on Christianity:
The first mass printing of the Bible was on the Guttenberg Press around 1450, the first mechanical press in Europe.
To make ends meet Guttenberg also printed something else for the Church, The Indulgences.
Indulgences were documents issued by the Church in the thousands. These were used to ABSOLVE sinners of their sins.
Before the advent of the printing press they were copied by an army of monks
The mass printed documents were similar but for the name of the recipient. The name of the person absolved was left blank to be filled in when absolution was given. The press made it convenient to print paperwork for indulgences by the bushel.
You bought indulgences with money, by doing favors for the Church or by advancing the Church agenda in the corridors of power.
The simple fact that the Catholic Church could sell absolutions for money or favors is one of the main reasons the Protestants separated from the Catholics during the Reformation.
The Protestants were outraged by the practice of selling the word or pardon of God for money or favors.
Who would not be incensed by such practices?
Well the Conservative Republican Protestant who have revivified the INDULGENCES by trading absolution as in the case of Newt Gingrich against the many favors leading to the eradication of one of the most important protections of the US Constitution the separation of State and Church which has preserved religious freedom for Americans and prevented religious wars in the USA for the last 200 years.
