"The phrase should be a contradiction in terms.
If someone referred to Christian adulterers,
Christian drug addicts, Christian prostitutes,
Christian pimps, Christian gangsta rappers,
or Christian acid rockers, most Christians
would get an extremely perplexed look on their face.
But when Christians in the military continue
killing for the state, and Christians not in the military
call for more killing in the name of the state,
many Christians don't even raise an eyebrow.

Putin Calls Bush Policy 'Dictatorial'
The "man with a good soul" cannot back Bush any longer
Putin accused Bush of pursuing a dictatorial
foreign policy and said mounting violence could
derail progress toward bringing peace and democracy
"Even if dictatorship is packaged in beautiful pseudo-democratic
phraseology, it will not be able
to solve systemic problems. It may even make them
worse. Iraq has turned into a major hotbed
of a terrorist threat, a firing ground and incubator
for militants," said Rootin' Tootin' Putin.

He said that in reality they were in an extremely

found themselves with a brief respite from the fighting;
some might have looked at a picture of their kids
or a letter from home, this soldier got his small moment

GOP Seeks to Curtail Filibusters
The bastards are changing the rules
Power-crazy Senate Republicans are trying to
do away with the filibuster.
Bill Frist, (R-Cat Killer), says "tyranny by
the minority" must end and he will do whatever it takes.
That includes what some call the "nuclear option" to
stop Democrats from using the filibuster to
block The Giggler's judicial nominees.
Frist wants to change Senate rules to make it
harder or impossible to filibuster judicial nominations.
It now takes 60 votes to end debate and bring a
nominee to a vote. Even with their new majority of 55,
it is unclear whether Republicans can reach 60
votes on the most contentious nominees.
Possibles:: The call it the "nuclear option" -
having Cheney declare filibusters unconstitutional.
A ruling of the chair can be upheld with a
simple majority vote.
I know the gelding Democrats don't care if Bush
takes total power, but with the GOP allow it?

Democracy in Ohio
by Robert Parry at consortiumnews.com
George W. Bush's political allies appear to be
slow-rolling a requested recount in Ohio, leaving so little time
that even if widespread voting fraud is discovered,
the finding will come too late to derail Bush's second term.
Though balloting occurred on Nov. 2, more than
a month ago, Ohio's Republican Secretary of State Kenneth Blackwell
still hasn't certified an official vote, a move
now expected on Monday, Dec. 6. Since Blackwell also has battled requests
from third-party candidates for an expedited recount,
a review of Ohio's vote now won't begin until Dec. 13, at the earliest,
according to Blackwell's office. [See Boston Globe,
Dec. 1, 2004]
But the Dec. 13 date is the same day the electors
of the Electoral College meet to formally select the President. So
the recount uncovers enough fraud to reveal John
Kerry as the rightful winner in Ohio, it would be too late to change that outcome.
Meanwhile, as Ohio's official foot-dragging has
gone on, Bush's election-night lead has continued to shrink with the counting
of overseas and provisional ballots. The Associated
Press reported on Dec. 3 that its vote tally of Ohio's 88 counties showed
Kerry narrowing Bush's lead to 119,000 votes from
about 136,000 votes, leaving Bush with a 2 percent lead.
But Kerry also might stand to gain a substantial
number of votes from a recount that would examine ballots thrown out by
antiquated punch-card voting machines. They are used
mostly in poor areas, especially African-American neighborhoods
that are Democratic strongholds. Other voters,
believing that Ohio's electronic systems were susceptible to vote rigging,
have sought audits to check for tampering.
I wish Kerry hadn't surrendered so quickly.
I wish Kerry had chosen to stay and fight.
I wish our side had wanted to win this contest.

Subject: regarding Rev Stroud
Bart, as much as I support Rev. Stroud, the United
Methodist Church acted within its purview.
Rev. Stroud knew that what she was doing was in
violation of canon law and she chose to do it anyway.
Now I would argue strenuously that canon law is
wrong (and it is a shame that six witnesses for
Rev. Stroud weren't allowed to speak to this issue),
but by her choice to be a Methodist minister
she subjected herself to the rules and discipline
of the denomination.
The good news is that her local church continues
to support her, and if she wants to continue
in the pastoral ministry there are other denominations
to which she could go.
I understand, but when Rosa Parks got on that bus in 1955, she subjected
herself to the rules
which said she had to go to the back and she ended up changing history
- or so the story goes.
I know nothing of Rev Stroud, but what if she's another Rosa parks?
Shame on thise close-minded idiots who freeze out "God's children" for
petty political reasons.
On their very best day, I, BartCop, am more Christlike than any of them
and I pity the fool who wants a piece of that in the live chat room.
Slaughters for Christ
Let us slayeth in His name, all praise to Jesus!
"What is a Christian going to do when he faces God
at the Judgment and has to give an account of his actions?
Suppose he is asked a simple question: "Why did
you kill those people defending their homes in Iraq?"
And suppose he replied: "Because the U.S. government
told me to."
What do you suppose would be the Lord's reaction
to such a reply? But what else could a man say?
He could not say that the United States was under
He could not say that Iraq was a threat to the
He could not say that he was protecting his family.
He could not say that he was protecting his property.

New Iraq Prisoner Photos
But don't worry, it's just "a few bad apples" again
The U.S. military has launched an investigation
into photographs that show Navy SEALs in Iraq sitting
on hooded and handcuffed detainees, and photos
of what appear to be bloodied prisoners, one with a gun to his head.

they were taken in May 2003, which could make them
the earliest evidence of possible abuse of prisoners

Thompson's Food/Terror Worries
What does Thompson know? He's only Bush's Food Czar
Bush played down on Saturday a stark warning
from his resigning health chief that the
nation's food supply is largely unprotected from
terror attack. He said that the government
is doing what it can to safeguard the public from
threats, but much work remains.
"We're a large country, with all kinds of avenues where
somebody could inflict harm," said Bush,
asked about the uppity Secretary's remarks. "We've
made a lot of progress in protecting our country,
and there's more work to be done, and this administration
is committed to doing it. Protecting our food
is hard work - everybody knows that. We're completely
safe and getting more safer."
