The O'Meara BS: Christianity & Bush - An Alternate View (33) RE: BS: Christianity & Bush - An Alternate View 23 Sep 03

Amen, McGrath. It's not the religion at fault, it's how people use it. I suspect that if Christianity didn't exist those power junkies would just as soon use Islam or Buddhism or whatever else was handy.

Mr. Firth, it's always good to find that some reigious folks still manage somehow to think for themselves and don't fall into the stereotypical quagmire.

When Gulf War I was getting started, I got a call from a local TV reporter asking what "You Vietnam veterans thought about it." I told him what I thought (don't ask) and then told him that since there were at least 2.5 million Vietnam vets he was going to have to make at least 2,499,999 more phone calls to find out what we thought about it. But it was easier to just quote me than to make all those phone calls, so guess what was on the news. (Not all the other 2,499,999 vets called me to say they disagreed with me, just most of them, it seemed.)

The "Religious Right" certainly doesen't speak for me, especially on political matters, and neither does the "Liberal Left." But if I agree on any issue with either side I'm presumed to be a hard-core member by the other side.

We Catholutherans are all Bush bashing Clinton haters.
