Need any more reasons to keep religion out of politics?

Just in case you haven’t yet been convinced that the most fervent followers of Christ in the United States, those zealots that call themselves fundamentalists or evangelicals, are doing everything within their power to move our country further toward a theocracy, Jacques Chirac drops a little inside dope about former President George W. Bush.

In an article entitled “A French Revelation, or The Burning Bush“, James A. Haught provides some quotes from former President of France, Jacques Chirac, given during a long interview with French journalist Jean-Claude Maurice, who provides the details in his latest book, “Si Vous le Répétez, Je Démentirai” (If You Repeat it, I Will Deny), released in March by French publisher Plon. The book also contains material from interviews with Nicolas Sarkozy and Dominique de Villepin.

Among the truly terrifying things from Haught’s article is this little snippet:

Now out of office, Chirac recounts that the American leader appealed to their “common faith” (Christianity) and told him: “Gog and Magog are at work in the Middle East… The biblical prophecies are being fulfilled… This confrontation is willed by God, who wants to use this conflict to erase his people’s enemies before a New Age begins.

Yes, we all knew deep down that Bush43 was (is) a religious nutjob. Now we just have a little more confirmation of the fact. But, as Haught questions in his article, why isn’t this making the news here in the United States? Is the mainstream media afraid of the religious nutjobs, or simply owned and operated by them?

    Christians don’t believe in a theocracy and never had. I don’t know of anytime in history when the church had direct control over the population. This is a liberal myth of an epic nature.

    Christians are the ones who came up with free speech and freedom of religion in order to keep a balance on corrupt government. I have noticed that Secularism is attempting to control society through censorship. In fact, Jason in his latest blog recommended just that when he stated he wanted to create a truth board.

    Christians support your right to free speech because we believe that the love of God is more powerful than the selfishness and power offered by the other worldviews.
