Who's Your God?
By Matthew L. Rosiere

In watching the President's address on National Television lastnight, I found myself in hysterical tears of laughter over his pompus and arrogant attitude on everything that he presented.

It disgusted me that he avoided every single question that was asked of him with double-talk excerpts from the pre-scripted speech he had just given minutes before.

What disugsted me most though was his intertwining of Faith and God into this Political Equation. He said that he prays, he prays for the American People and the innocent Iraqi People. He said that he felt lifted because we pray for him, and that he "knows that".

I say to him, "Who's your God George W. Bush?"

My God doesn't accept prayer from men who use his name and his will to justify the murder of innocents.

My God has no respect, only shame, for men who use tragedy to accelerate personal gain.

My God does not believe in War.

My God would not appreciate being used in a fashion that excuses men of power to kill for profit.

My God is a peaceful God.

My God loves those who do not carry hate in their hearts, or blood on their hands.

My God loves he who would give to not receive in return.

My God is compassionate, and forgiving.

My God believes that time heals all wounds.

My God would not answer to those men who "pray" to him for more money, power, oil, lumber, or the like.

My God does not appreciate it when his precious gem, Earth, is torn apart, burned, and recycled for profit of material monies.

My God has patience and understanding.

So George W. Bush, I ask, who is your God that you would use to justify murder and the sins you seek?

Is your God Mars, the God of War?

Is your God Osiris, Lord of the Underworld?

Is your God Satan, the Fallen Angel?

Or is your God, one that above all else, bends to your will?

...Yourself?

Tell me George W. Bush, who is your God?

Isn't it interesting that President Bush, who claims to be a 'born again Christian,' who claimed Jesus Christ as his chosen role model, who called the Holy Bible his choice of reading, who said he once lived a life woefully steeped in sin but who found grace and forgiveness through Jesus Christ is the same George Bush who as governor of the state of Texas (not unlike Pontias Pilate was governor of Judea) refused to stay the execution of a fellow Christian -- one equally converted from a sin filled life to walking in forgiveness -- Carla Faye Tucker, who asked only that her death sentence be commuted so that she might continue on with her prison ministry to the women there behind bars. He would not stay it even one day. Carla had killed someone at age 16 in drug induced haze. After being imprisoned, she found Christ, was converted and started a ministry to the imprisoned women for almost 14 years, while she awaited her execution. She was a model prisoner. She didn't ask to be set free. She asked to be allowed to continue the work of Christ.

George Bush refused her.

George Bush refused Christ.

Conversely, George did stay the execution of one person on death row while governor, showing them mercy and grace. And only one. Henry Lee Lucas, confessed serial rapist and murderer, who giggled and bragged about his psychotic rapes and visceral conquests and toyed with authorities about even more murders which they didn't even have a clue about. He died unrepentant and claimed to have even made 'hits' for the CIA mixed in with his own slaughters in order to obscure them as being assassinations. His execution was commuted by GWB.

Jesus said, "You shall know them by their fruits."

Aren't almost all death row inmates born again? Everyone has their own version of God chui and its usually whichever version best suits his or her own needs. I too am sickened by dubyas use of religion as a catalyst for his on personal conquest but hell leaders have been doing that for years.

IMO, the last thing I want someone who is making decisions about going to war to think is that he is guided by the divine. I want Bush to look at evidence, and make decisions based solely upon that evidence (Whether or not he is making the "right" decision is a different issue). Since no two people can agree on what "Jesus said" (or even better what "Jesus meant") in my opinion that rules Jesus out as a decision maker. The only reason any politician even acknowledges religion is because it makes voters uncomfortable if they dont (and we should be happy for that).

Morality, ethics, and motivation are one thing... religion is another.

And just on a side note, something I noticed about this article:

My God does not believe in War.
My God would not appreciate being used in a fashion that excuses men of power to kill for profit.
My God is compassionate, and forgiving.
It bugs the hell out of me when people say things like this. If this is all true, then his god has been scarcely listened to since man showed up on this planet. His god is god in theory. The one that everyone talks about when they are feeling good about themselves. "Bush's god" is god in practice, the one we have seen followed all over the world for thousands of years. If what this guy says is true, then NO ONE who follows god will go to war with ANYONE.

Thats a nice thought... in theory.

You're right. God has been scarcely listened to in all of man's existence.
But is that really cause to say that God is a god in theory? Hardly. God's commands have been ignored throughout the past because of the hardness of human hearts, and because of our selfish, greedy, and evil ways/intent.

If we truly listened to God, and did things according to His will (not for the sake of tradition, or to appear Godly in the eyes of other men, but because of our faith and love), Jesus would never have been sacrificed (there would be no need, as we would not sin if we truly followed God's will).

God does not condone war against our brothers and sisters. Sadly, because of human greed, and ego, our sibling links have been severed.

Don't let the words that come out of Bush's mouth fool you. The hooker on the street corner has a better chance for salvation than that hypocritical, egotistical, stubborn, greedy monster.
