God's Ambassador

God has taken a hell of a beating recently - with Richard Dawkins et al raising the debate, Jewish politicians blaming earthquakes on gay sex and the Archbishop of Canterbury's nod to Sharia Law (and of course the booming success of the Liverpool Humanist Group). They've even got rid of blasphemy Goddamn them! Even I was beginning to feel sorry for the 'Omnipotent One'!

And then into the Fray comes a new champion of the Almighty, Tony Blair!

Our Tony is to teach Religion at Yale University. Now if anything is going to drive even more believers into the hands of the gloating godless it must be this. I know hypocrisy is a fundemantal part of all religions but this is a tad too much surely. This is the same Tony Blair who started an illegal war in Iraq with his best buddy Bush. If there was a just world he would now be at the Hague being tried for War Crimes. Over 600,000 people killed and counting puts him up their with Saddam himself.

True he has helped bring back that 'old time religion' to Iraq. Women are now stoned to death in the street for what they wear, if you are gay you are hung and if you aren't in the right religious sect you have a good chance of being ripped apart by one of God's Martyrs.

Of course Tony asked God whether he should devastate Iraq and I suppose God must have said ok - well Tony wouldn't have done it otherwise would he? Now normally God's reward is in heaven but our Tone seems to be getting his reward down here too. Apart from being a peace envoy - stop tittering at the back -he has his £1,000,000. a year job with the bank who has made a fortune out of financially backing the war Chase Bank (They made a fortune out of the 2nd world war too. Bush's Grandad worked for them at the time.) Zurich insurance have given him a £500,000 a year advisory position too.

The cherry on the cake has to be this teacher of religion at Yale. The lord does move in mysterious ways a bit like our Tony.

Unfortunately you're forgetting the part where a huge number of Christians love Bush. See Jesus Camp, where the woman teaching the kids to speak in tongues and cry when overwhelmed by the holy spirit says Bush has been a great force for Jesus, and then they bring out a cardboard cut out and she gets all the kids to pray both to and for Bush.

So sorry, you're slightly wrong - it will drive some away, but you can sure as shit bet thousands will flock to it.

More bitterness. Atheism has been rejected by America. Atheist nations have been a total failure in the world. The fruits of atheist government brings no lasting good. Millions murdered by atheist regimes in the 20th century. Only the gullible and historically uneducated would want to get rid of Christianity and replace it with atheism.

Ha! Atheist nations total failure? I think a few countries (Norway? China?) would beg to differ.

Millions murdered by atheist regimes? You seem to be forgetting maybe a lesser-known historical figure. I'm not sure whether or not you've heard of him - his name was Adolf Hitler.

And finally, America? America is your big and best example of why Christian countries are the best? America whose energy policies have bought us record oil prices, whose environmental policies are so damaging to the planet, whose education, health and social services systems are a complete shambles?

America who sent us to a war so they could steal oil? America, whose foreign policies have made them the most hated country in the world? Pick a better example buddy.
