Strange Republican Prophecy
I was at a 4th of July barbecue with a majority of evangelicals. One conversation began with the predictions for the next 3/4 months. I didn't get a chance to see the print-out (computer). I kept asking who this guy was and what were his credentials, but they couldn't answer any questions about something that had been passed around on a piece of paper.

The points being made were these:

1. Bush is the right man for the job because he Prays to God.
2. Mike Tyson will become an Evangelist now that he has sunk to
to the lowest point in his life. When you are at the bottom,
the only option is to go to the top.
3. If Americans had supported the troops in Vietnam, we would
have won in Vietnam.
4. We are loosing Iraq because people are not supporting the troops.
5. The war in Iraq is God's war. He wants us to help make them
free. W. was only doing what God wanted.
6. They hate us because they are jealous of our freedom.
7. In 3/4 months all things in the world will be resolved.

I jumped in and said that I thought they hated us because of American Foreign Policy. Shocked looks were had by all.
I was very proud of a young man about 24 years of age. He challenged his aunt and told her that he hates it when people try to convince him that they are right and also refuse to allow him to say his point of view. He told her that people like that are brainwashed.

So, if we take that point of view, let's all sit back and let the world come to an end. These people are nuts. If they want religion,, they should go back to mainstream religion. These internet Evangelists are nuts. The people who listen to them are even more demented.

1. Republicans are not prophets
but many of the far right fundies resort to the bible to predict the future - which only works if you look at the world as black and white.
