Hiding Behind "The Old Rugged Cross."

An important election is almost upon us and there are a couple of things I need to say. For six years now we’ve been bamboozled by the rhetorical histrionics about homosexual marriage and stem cell research as a group of conservative carpet baggers have pillaged the American economy, entangling us in a war only Halliburton and Associates have profited from and nearly destroyed the middle class of our country in the process.

This is not the first time a group of leaders have used the legitimate trappings of religion to lead a congregation and a nation astray. Again and again in the Old Testament of the Judeo-Christian Bible one discovers what are called times of “Apostasy”. These times of apostasy are characterized by corrupt leaders draping themselves in cloaks of self righteousness, while taking the choicest of all things for themselves, while the common people suffered. While claiming moral superiority these leaders were no better than thieves and moral degenerates.

If you ignore the rhetoric and judge only the actions of the current leaders in the House, Senate and Presidency, do their actions speak of honor, integrity and genuine concern for the welfare of the people in their charge? They do not! Their actions speak of individual greed, graft, corruption and moral depravity. While these wicked leaders beguile us with words of family values they sacrifice our children in a war started with lies. While our sons and daughters are paying the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms our sinful leaders deny brave soldiers’ families the benefits necessary to maintain a home front.

While urging us to take action against the homosexual in our midst they prey upon our children through the internet and engage in a cover up using the same tactic as Adam when confronted with his sin, he blamed someone other than himself. It was not us, it was the Liberals?

Where are the concepts of personal responsibility and repentance in this group of individuals claiming moral superiority? According to the Conservatives in power they are responsible for nothing, and the victims of everything!

As this group of vipers howl at the top of their lungs about Liberals raising taxes, they remain strangely silent about the fiscal irresponsibility with the taxes already collected. Where is the surplus they were entrusted with when they took power?

We've been blindfolded with the flag and our ears have been deafened to the truth by the rhetoric of intolerance. Homosexuals have been made a scapegoat by truly evil men hiding their own iniquities. Can the current Conservative leaders pass the test of, “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”? They can not! Think carefully and then cast your vote based upon deed and not rhetoric. Take your eyes off of the "Old Rugged Cross" held aloft by the Republican party and focus upon the record of their deeds. Perhaps you’ll see why they are slinging so much mud instead of listing accomplishments. Think, and then ask yourself, how would Jesus vote?

Better yet, think and ask yourself, what did Jesus Do? Then perhaps your politics will follow. :)

Corrupt power mellows for the past three-and-a-half-millennium masked by spices and embellished with showmanship.

Excellent words! I'm always amazed at how many folks fall for the same old rhetoric.
