Bush believes he is on a mission from God -- news headline


The above image should not to be mistaken as a picture of Dubya's halo. It is in fact an actual picture of the barrel bottom that God has been scraping.

Comments:
Al, we had similar reports in the news down this way...

...And Bush is quoted as telling the two men, "I feel God's words coming to me: 'Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East'. And by God, I'm gonna do it."

The BBC reported that the White House had dismissed the allegations as "absurd". "He's never made such comments," said White House spokesman Scott McClellan.


Should I start worrying already?
 
Your quotation certainly “reveals” another aspect of all this, Probligo, which is that the White House spokesman is a participant in these...uh... séances, for lack of a better word. McClellan is even more definitive than Bush himself about what He did or did not say. If in fact, as McClellan reports, He did not order peace in the Middle East, McClellan’s secretiveness about what He did order is indeed worrisome.
 
This kind of behavior from the President is troubling. I'm sure that most Presidents have had an inkling that what they were thinking or doing might be in God's favor--doing the right thing. Bush is basically stopping short of proclaiming that he's a prophet of God. I'm starting to wonder if he's one of the false prophets spoken of in Revelations, but he's probably just a nut job with superb connections.

Bush came to us claiming that he was a "uniter not a divider," but much that he touches becomes sour and contentious. I'm no theologist, but that sounds like a prototype for something ungodly.
 
Thanks for your comment, TG. It is the sort of message that the progressive community in the US, both inside and outside the Democratic Party, should be taking to the deluded people who think Bush and the Republican Party are doing God's work. In other words, this kind of argument frames the issue in the religious terms that they would understand. Of course, one fact that would have to be faced is that much of the progressive community (myself, for example) see religion as no more than a bulwark of the status quo. They would feel hypocritical using the terms of an ideology that they don't believe in. Another fact is that a large part of the progressive community does not want to get on the bandwagon of those who believe in the propaganda line of America's essential goodness. They know that the US government has always represented multifarious oppressions. The situation is critical, though, and a solution will have to be worked out. One thing that makes the situation even more critical is that religion intself has been moving in a right-ward direction in the last two decades or so, whether we are talking about Protestantism, Catholicism, Islam, Judaism, or, for that matter, Hinduism. People may have to be weaned away from the idea that there can be heavenly salvation without earthly salvation. Without earthly salvation, the only Kingdom that will come would be the American Empire of capitalist exploitation.
 
It's actually the light at the end of the tunnel which is really an on-coming train.
