What do you think "God" thinks about GWB ?
If you don't believe in God, that's cool, just a funny sort of query. I think God is appalled, but why He/She/It doesn't do anything about GWB is beyond me.

2. God has a universe to manage
He can't worry about every little thing. "Take some responsiblity for yourselves for My sakes."

8. I beg to disagree. Bush is a third-rate man who stole his
way to the top using the gifts given to him in life: his family's money, connections and ties to the CIA and underworld.

But I agree-- what a disappointment. A disappointment that the citizens of a once-great nation would allow a man such as Bush to take over their country, dismantle their once-cherished institutions and terrorize the world.

5. I`m not a God expert, but here goes....
People who condone torture, crush the poor to benefit the rich, blow up a country because they can and have an answering machine installed under their suit coat prior to a debate belong in hell.

6. The "god" people created..................
would probably smite him with a bolt of lightning, if there were such a god. If you follow the rules that god, and his ever popular son jesus, commanded people to follow, he'd already be a piece of smoldering wheat and yeast, or toast, in the vernacular.

Am I sure that god does not exist? No. However, I can't imagine a god with such all seeing and all knowing powers allowing a mutant like bush to fuck up the works without some interference to stop it. I guess I just don't like the hands off approach this deity takes, or doesn't take, with his supposed creation. Doesn't god care that george bush is a bloodthirsty monster bent on destroying the world? :shrug:

And the ever popular reply will be? "Free will", correct?

7. God has the advantage of being able to see infinitely
into the past and infinitely into the potential futures, as well as knowing the hearts and minds of everyone who has ever existed. As such, God understands the cyclical nature of evil having seen it rear up throughout history as people face choices given free will, intellect and emotion. And, it seems to me (I might be wrong) that the enlightenment of civilizations occurs only after they have lived the consequences of their poor choices. It also seems that the lessons learned are easily forgotten by future generations - hence the cyclical episodes. I would like to think that God sees a gradual upward slope of enlightenment over the course of thousands of years. It's of course very unfortunate that societies as a whole have to learn their lessons through the school of hard knocks, but apparently this appears to be the case.

9. And does Jesus share his views on the death penalty?
With Buxh's religious compassion, I'm sure he looked for guidance before he rubber stamped the death warrants as Governer.

It would seem Jesus could have given him first hand advice.

10. I think he's preparing a special place for him and all his friends....
Perhaps spending all eternity working three jobs, since he thinks that's so fantastic.

11. Amen to that, Mrs. Grumpy!
If we can take consolation in anything, it's that no one escapes the Law of Karma.

14. Human beings have free will
So "He" can't step in. But God helps those who help themselves. I think a Democrat said that.

15. It is not my place to make the judgments of God.
My task is simply to fight tooth and nail against the death, destruction, and corruption that GWB promotes.

26. "a work in progress"??!!
I hope you believe in reincarnation because there is no way in hell (or heaven) that he could ever make up for the destruction he has done to humanity in a single lifetime!

30. God? Or Jesus?
Jesus, all loving compassionate dude that he was, loves Dubya in spite of knowing he's completely delusional and warmongering.

God, on the other hand, is regretting making convenants with the Jews that he wouldn't smite them and their descendents, which, thanks to Jesus, Christians are.

imo.

31. I think he's thinking "You reap what you sow"
After all we put him into office, we all must suffer the consequences. God didn't put him in, free will and all.
