How is this any different from radical Muslim clerics around the world preaching "holy" jihad against America and the West?

That a prominent Christian figure would adopt a similar stance should come as no suprise to anyone in 2005. This is Standard White-guy Paranoia.

NR, glad to see your thoughts up in here mayne!!!

If you followed the thread on P6 down a piece, you'll perhaps note that Rev. Dr. M.G. Pat Robertson is just a little out of the mold of the standard white guy - and though Islam is organizationally constructed much like evangelical denominations, i.e., lacking a central hierarchy - I think it would be quite a stretch to consider PR's religious posturings as anything besides a tool for capitalizing his binnis ventures.

PR is an original gangsta who just happens to move the crowd to a slightly different beat than the urban rhyming and posing wannabes..., think James Bond villain.

cnu, you are dropping some hilarious quotables today:

"PR is an original gangsta..."
and this one from P6:
"Given Israel's profligate use of assassination, one might be inclined to think him Jewish..,"

HA HA!

Now, I was thinking this was Standard White Guy speak sort of along the lines of, "We'll nuke the earth before people of color take control." I'm sure thats the policy btw.

But are you saying that PR is possibly on some UK Neo-Con James-Bond-villin tip? A la Paul Wolfowitz and the Straussians in this country? A la full-on Neo-Con kabal?

But many would argue that Christianity is, and has always been, used to promote particular political ideologies. Some scholars essentially view Christianity as a type of political ideology due to the Roman occupation during the period and the ruckus that J himself caused, supposedly on purpose for the cause of Jewish independence, that is.

In any case, what ever happened to "Thou shalt not kill"? You know a lot about religion/Christianity, in your opinion, what is the degree to which Christianity can be used to promote political ideology without becoming flat-out anti-Christian?

I'm assuming we'd have to draw the line at murder, but what about someone like Hitler? Don't we have to embrace the significance of the image of Jesus with the sword at some point?

Shades of Fuller/Welsing!!! What persuades you to this conclusion?

You know, absent the reality of the Nazi's, and the factions that gave rise to that occurence, it seems a credulous claim. But Google Reinhard Gehlen, Operation Paperclip, Allen Dulles, Henry Kissinger - and the preservation/propagation of that surrealistic memeset becomes much easier to understand.

Wanting to avoid an Dan Brown-esque confusiont of the issue, I simply recommend you loiter on through the Yurica archives..., and if you must go deep on the origins, Fr. Romanides will indulge your curiosity in excruciating detail...,

Christianity is a culture of competency with a set of definite psychological objectives, technical language, and developmental practices. As such, it would be most accurate to view it as a discrete polity that Works toward its own ends. To my knowledge, it is not involved in American partisan politics.

Hitler was an embodiment of the anti-Christian impulse. That impulse was not destroyed, has not been diminished, and has grown vastly more powerful and sophisticated. It is already meeting with very determined resistance. Do you think that this countervailing force of militant reistance will succeed?

Sorry I'm late.

I blame my mother for this. Mostly because those who have power seek above all else to maintain it. The paranoia revolves around the theory that if the people of color (Negroes, Indians, etc.) throughout the world were ever to unite in significant numbers, they'd seek revenge on White peapo. I thought this fear was universally known?

To my knowledge, it is not involved in American partisan politics.

Or rather did you mean to say that it (Christianity) wants nothing to do with it (partisan politics), in theory?

Do you think that this countervailing force of militant reistance will succeed?

Extremely doubtful. But let me ask you: If the push for intelligent design points toward midevilism, anti-Christianism culminates in what?

If your mama tells you a chicken dips snuff, you better go check under its wing!!! She told you right. What I wanted to know is whether or not you believe that what the VP of the Heritage Foundation's Foreign and Defense Policy Studies Division fessed to this morning on C-SPAN Washington Journal - is actually true? Kim Holmes averred as to how he's scurred to death of reprisal for past abuses.

Or rather did you mean to say that it (Christianity) wants nothing to do with it (partisan politics), in theory?

Nope. Genuine Christianity doesn't involve itself with partisan politics.

If the push for intelligent design points toward midevilism, anti-Christianism culminates in what?

A lot of blakazzes currently in bondage in the prison-industrial complex being relocated to Montana to work in a harsh, dangerous, and traditionally west virginian vocation
