Forcing The Rapture


While Jeff Rense's website can sometimes rightfully be called a bastion of foilhattery, sometimes I'll still find an article that resonates with the purpose of this community. This article is one of them.

Trying To Force The Rapture

By Johnathan Richards

Recently the US Secretary of State, Condi Rice stated -

"The Lord is going to come on time - if we just wait."

For all two of you on planet Earth who don't understand the significance of what this means, the US Secretary of State has publically acknowledged the US governments allegiance to a higher power, which is supposed to be the accepted excuse for government ineptitude and incompetence. Frankly, this statement by a government official borders on the verge of dementia.

The neocon junta in the White House wholeheartedly subscribes to the literal viewpoint that Jesus is indeed coming - and very soon, which is the tendered reason (and widely supported) for their attrocious behavior and gross mediocrity. In other words, worry not about governmental malfeasence, lying, torture, murder, environmental destruction, the deaths of hundreds of thousands of people, or even government sponsored terrorism, the Lord of Lords and King of Kings is soon to come. Jesus will fix everything.

A few news articles (and a request!)

Archive of an sfgate.com article regarding dominionists in the military (and in particular the hijacking of the chaplaincy):

Info on dominionists damning the victims of Katrina further (and claiming the hurricane is divine retribution): http://www.religionnewsblog.com/12148/Wrath-of-God--but-why-gets-many-reasons

And a request for readers:

Per http://www.religionnewsblog.com/12151/Brokaw-to-Focus-on-Evangelical-Movement Tom Brokaw was supposed to have a show on 8 September focusing in part on the dominionist/Avengelical group "New Life Church" in Colorado Springs (one of the largest churches in the US, and at the very heart of the dominionist movement in Colorado Springs).

Did anyone happen to catch this show or have any comments?
