US Congresswoman sees handwriting on the wall


Congresswoman Jan Schakowski (D- Illinois) had some interesting and chilling observations about the current administration:

I salute the leadership that the religious leaders – clergy and lay people – have shown on the war. Don't stop now. "God is a Republican" is a guiding principle for this Administration. As long as there are Congressional resolutions and official days of prayer, the United States can continue to preemptively attack any country it wants. As Senate Leader Bill Frist said at a large gathering I attended, "All you need to know is the difference between right and wrong, good and evil."

Their God is homophobic and anti-choice. The Secretary of Education Rod Paige said, "All things equal, I would prefer to have a child in a school that has a strong appreciation for the values of the Christian community. In a religious environment the value system is set. That's not the case in a public school where there are so many different kids with different kinds of values." The dangerous destruction of the wall between Church and State is well underway. It is religious leaders and the faith community that needs to address this.

Whose 'right and wrong'? Whose 'good and evil'? Yours? Theirs? Is Dark Christianity taking over our country? You'd better believe it, because if you don't, you're going to wake up one day in a real-life "A Handmaid's Tale". Not a scenario many of us- including more moderate and thoughtful and inclusive Christians- want to see.
