But Will It Be More Holy War???

Wow...
The tossed election of a conservative bishop to the Diocese of South Carolina makes it clearer that the Episcopal Church is walking away from the Anglican Communion and the Christian faith, said a former bishop of the diocese.

The Episcopal Church invalidated the Very Rev. Mark Lawrence's election last week, outraging conservative Episcopal leaders who say the priest clearly meets the standards for church leadership. The decision also drew out sympathy from those who opposed Lawrence's election as many called it a "tragedy" for him and the church.

"I respect him for doing the canonical thing, but I think he should go ahead and be consecrated anyway," the Rt. Rev. Dr. C. Fitzsimons Allison, the retired 12th bishop of South Carolina, told VirtueOnline, a voice for global Orthodox Anglicanism. "I was surprised that it was that close. [U.S. Episcopal Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts] Schori and David Booth Beers (Chancellor to the presiding bishop) are so embarrassing to The Episcopal Church and worldwide Anglican Communion."

[ cf Bishop: Episcopal Church Walking Away from the Christian Faith ]
Boy, now that is Going to be some fun here....

The real fun of course is who gets to keep the Holy Warriors???

Would this be the wrong time to remind americans that we have been through these sorts of things before. There was that whole question over whether or not Slavery was God's One True And Only Biblically Literal Position that Mandated The One True And Only Biblically Literal Standard.... Then there was that whole thing about allowing women the right to vote, and of course, VIOLATING the One True And Only Biblically Literal Position that Mandated The One True And Only Biblically Literal Standard that women MUST be silent in the Chruch, and that the Body Politic is the Extension of The Gathering.... Then there was the whole question on how many wives could you have, for tax purposes, and the "You can only take the tax write off on one...." Clique of God Hating America Bashers won...

But there is also that other fun in all of this, should Americans Be under Obligation to Foreign Princes??? And that in a Time of Holy War????

Not to put too fine a point on the central problem here...

Of Course It IS a Holy War....

For our slow readers, start with the simpler understanding that the Divinity Of Dubya is not a debatable point, since the clear and compelling proof from the argument of intelligent design MANDATES IT! As such, any doubt on that Point Means Stabbing our Troops in the Back and waging war with God, as a part of one's God Hating America Bashing....

This inevitably leads, given the Clear and Compelling Proof, that the Current Administration is the ONLY Administration that has Been Zombie Free, and Remains Zombie Free, that the War that the Current Administration is Fighting is not one of those Evil Demonic Nancy Pelosi Driven Satanic Voodoo Zombie Dust Bunnies Of Despair Armed With Bong Hits 4 Jesus.

Thus since it is NOT unholy!!! It clearly follows that this is THE MOST HOLIEST OF ALL HOLY CRUSADES EVER!!!

I hope that this clears up any ambiguity there may have been about why Congress CAN NOT doubt the Divine Rights of the President, that are bestowed upon Him By the Divine Will!!!! And that any opposition to the Divinity of Dubya is merely War Against God!!!

and that would be bad...

But Does Horowitz Support The Divinity Of Dubya???

Clearly More Americans have to start wondering Which Side is David HOROWITZ really on?
DAVID HOROWITZ is a self-appointed general of the right-wing thought police. In 2006, he published The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America.
...
“Students are being given an indoctrination, not an education,” he claims--and as examples, he points to the Center for Women’s and Gender Studies, the Communication Studies Department, and the Division of Rhetoric and Writing. I am affiliated with all of these programs and a clear target in his “new” book, but the Texan would not print my rebuttal.
...
CONTRARY TO his image as disaffected crank, Horowitz has been increasingly successful.

In state legislatures across the U.S., for example, he has proposed the misnamed “Academic Bill of Rights,” which purports to call for balance and openness in the college curriculum--but which, in fact, would give legislators and university administrations a warrant to police faculty on the basis of “ideological neutrality.” Los Angeles Times columnist Rosa Brooks explains that the Academic Bill of Rights is “merely a smokescreen for the McCarthyite agenda beneath the lofty rhetoric.”

[ cf The witch-hunts of David Horowitz ( emphasis Mine) ]
But There is A MORE Pressing Stressor....

How can one be open and balanced on so simple a thing like the Divinity of Dubya???

One either accepts the Divine Will Of The Divine Decider, or one is stabbing our Troops in The Back???

What is there that needs to be Balanced and Open in that???

One is either A Defender of the Divinity Of Dubya, or One is On the Side Of SATAN!!!

Should Reason Be Used In Moral Judgements....

Here's a bit of scary stuff:
Now, revealing new research shows that people with damage to a key emotion-processing region of the brain also make moral decisions based on the greater good of the community, unclouded by concerns over harming an individual.

It is the first study to demonstrate how emotion impacts moral judgement and sheds light on why people often act out of respect for an individual rather than choosing to act in a more logical, utilitarian way. The findings could cause a rethink in how society determines a "moral good", and challenge the 18th-century philosophies of Immanuel Kant and David Hume.

Antonio Damasio at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, US, and colleagues recruited 30 people for their experiment. Six of the subjects had suffered damage to a region in the front of the brain known as the ventromedial prefrontal cortex (VMPC), which regulates emotions. The participants had this brain injury as a result of an aneurism or tumour growth in the VMPC region.

[ cf Impaired emotional processing affects moral judgements ]
Hum....

Do we really want these Secularists Abandoning the Divinity Of Dubya???

Simply because they Like That Science Stuff???

Where Does The Economist Get Their Blunts....

Because these Dudes Are So Way Over Quota on their

That we, like, dude, want to be that seriously Chronic...
FOUR years ago, as American troops rolled across Iraq, the Republican Party was on a roll too. Republicans not only controlled the whole of Washington (seven of the nine Supreme Court justices had been appointed by Republican presidents). They controlled the majority of governorships as well—including those of mega-states such as Florida and New York—and they were winning the war of ideas, thanks to a division of conservative think-tanks.
...
The war has eviscerated the administration's reputation for competence—and with it the idea that the Republicans have an inherent advantage as the “Daddy” party. An administration that once boasted about its clutch of CEOs will forever be remembered for phrases such as “slam dunk” (of WMD intelligence) and “Mission Accomplished”, or for disasters such as the failure to prepare Walter Reed and other military hospitals to deal with casualties. The same CBS News/New York Times poll found that only 28% of people approved of Mr Bush's handling of the situation in Iraq.
...
Mr Bush's mishandling of the war has damaged the Republican Party's two biggest advantages over the Democrats—its reputation for skilful foreign policy and for the unapologetic use of force. The likes of Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger, George Bush senior and Brent Scowcroft clearly identified the Republicans with mastery of foreign policy. (Bob Woodward asked Mr Bush whether he had consulted his father before invading Iraq. The son replied that he had consulted a “higher father”.) By contrast, the peace wing of the Democratic Party clearly linked the Democrats with being soft on defence.

But the Iraq war has destroyed the Republicans' advantage of decades. The party is losing support even among the once solid armed services. Today only 46% of servicemen describe themselves as Republican, compared with 60% in 2004—and only 35% of them approve of the handling of the war. Voters are now much more willing to listen to the Democrats on war and peace. Barack Obama's statement in 2002—“I'm not opposed to all wars. I'm opposed to dumb wars”—is a perfect refrain for a resurgent party.

The Iraq war has also eroded the Republicans' advantage in the “war on terror”, not least because of Mr Bush's success in tying the two subjects together in the 2004 campaign.

The Republican Party is among the war's victims

( emphasis Added to show How Stoned the Economist IS for being the Defeatist Cut And Runner Appeasers that they truly ARE!!!) ]
What if the Economist Had to "Just Say NO?" and like Follow like Britany Spears through ReHab to get past their little Anti-Christ Moment???

Ok, yeah, like there are like some folks who like do not Accept the Divinity Of Dubya, because, like they want to stab the troops in the Back Because they are God Hating America Bashers, but that doesn't mean that there are any real issues that could be considered in any way Under Positive.

I mean, what IS with them???

Where IS their Faith? Their Faith In the True Faith OF the divine Will of willingness????

Shrill Hysterical Liberals Just Like To Swear....

Clearly they need to learn to improve the quality of the Public Discourse RATHER than simply demanding that more swearing Occur!!!
The senate judiciary committee voted on Thursday for subpoenas if officials close to George Bush, the US president, refuse voluntarily to provide sworn testimony to congress.
...
Bush has said he will oppose any attempt to compel aides to testify in public and under oath in continuing inquiries into whether the dismissals of the prosecutors were politically motivated.

The senate committee authorised subpoenas of Karl Rove, Bush's chief political strategist, along with Harriet Miers, former White House counsel, and William Kelley, deputy White House counsel.
...
"We're told that we can have a closed-door meeting with no transcript, not under oath, limited number of people, and the White House will determine what the agenda is. That, to me, is nothing," said Patrick Leahy, a Democrat who chairs the judiciary committee.

[ cf Pressure on Bush aides grows (emphais Mine)]
Can we allow this Sort Of Vulgarity, and it's on going demands for more vulgarity, simply because SOME in Congress can not accept the Divinity Of Dubya as Demanded By the Argument From Intelligent Design....

How Crass and Crude the Atheists Out THERE have become!!!!

Just because they do not BELIEVE in the Divinity Of Dubya is no reason for them to lower the Quality of Public Discuourse to mere Fact Based Assertions.

Ah YES!! Go Team Venture....

wow, just catch this moment:
As Gore visited with former colleagues on the House floor around lunchtime, Rep. Westmoreland argued that the Democrat was violating recently enacted ethics rules rescinding floor privileges for former congressmen working as agents of a foreign government.

Because Gore serves as an adviser to Britain on climate change, Westmoreland said, he shouldn't have been allowed.

[ cf Georgia Republican says Gore not allowed on House floor ]
Gosh, Golly, Gee Whiz....

Makes me wonder if Rep. Westmoreland has the stones to keep those Roman Catholics, and the Renegade Anti-American Anglicans off the House Floor too....

Or would that be asking too much, as we try to protect americans from the growing threat of the outside world where there Are Known Groups who do not accept the Divinity Of Dubya....

I mean, would YOU want an Atheist who did not believe in the Divinity Of Dubya using the House of Representative as some sort of Secularist Place of mere Secularism???

Those Damn Freedomites...

God it's bad enough that the Mooninites are out there, but now the FreedomItes Go Wonky
A French court cleared a satirical weekly newspaper Thursday in a case brought by Muslims who were angered by its publication of caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad.

The newspaper Charlie-Hebdo and its director, Philippe Val, were accused of "publicly abusing a group of people because of their religion." Val had risked a six-month prison sentence and a fine of up to $29,250.

[ cf French court acquits paper that printed prophet caricatures ]
Did you notice the Sneaky Part????

Hum???

Did YOU???

Notice how the Evil Freedomites make no mention of the Divinity of Dubya, and hence that they are trying to allow just any old Atheist Group to do what ever they please without Conceding the Divinity Of Dubya....

I mean these Athestical Groups that DENY THE DIVINITY OF DUBYA just make me sick!!!! I mean how can they form any sense of Morality without the Divinity of Dubya in their Life???

No wonder the Progressives Are Having Problems...

Over at Political Cortex we see
This week, the Greater Blogosphere is discussing the significance of the politics of the religious right as it relates to the National Association of Evangelicals, global warming -- and how Democrats should relate to all that; the double standard of the DOJ regarding treatment of people of faith in the workplace; what to make of the Democratic member of Congress who came out as a "non-theist" - and much more --- including: what a major Christian seminary president makes of the documentary film "Jesus Camp;" news of Christian nationalist "minutemen" marching on Lexington; and bloggers making movies and writing books!
[ cf This Week in Blogging the Religious Right ]
and it covers some 2,000+ words, with whining and snivelling, and noting that, YES, the Department of Justice Understands that sometimes Even Jews must learn that they have a loyalty and faith in Jesus, or they may not be able to keep their Jobs....

But NOT ONCE!!!! NOT ONCE do those Left Wingers mention the Divinity of Dubya, and that all true americans know that if we are talking 'religion' then we are either Talking The Divinity of Dubya, or it is all about Satanism and Stabbing the Troops In The Back...

Now don't get me wrong here, there are many Religious Atheists who fail to support the Divinity of Dubya and want us to treat them as if they were still americans.... But Be Reasonable Folks???? After One Has Abandoned the Divinity of Dubya, what is really left of one's Atheistic Way Of Life...

Hey, didn't HanoiAnnie Coulter Say That First???

WOW:
A first-term congressman from Michigan who compared parts of Iraq to Detroit and Harvey, Ill., an economically depressed Chicago suburb, defended the comments Thursday.
...
"As in any major city, there are hot zones, as in the country of Iraq ... Detroit is not a negative to me. It's a great city in a great state."

[ cf Congressman defends Iraq-Detroit analogy ]
Or he could be onto something Majikal....

It's not like we are Retreating from Iraq, but forward deploying our troops to secure Detrioit, and other american cities that would Actually appreciate the Helicopter Drops of Dollars into their "green zones" to keep the Iranian Flying Saucers Away...

Hey Yeah, that's the Ticket...

It's not one more Failed HanoiAnnie Coulter Skank Comedic Moment....

It's a bid to fund rebuilding american cities....

Maybe if he pointed out that Clearly Detroit has fewer Zombies, NOW, but could at any moment, be a part of the Great Zombie Uprising....

yeah, that would help everyone get Religion and get on the Same Page about the need to fund more Holy Shrines to the Divinity of Dubya to keep the Zombies Away...

Have YOU built a Shrine To The Divinity OF Dubya to keep the Zombies Away....
