This is George Bush’s accountability moment. That’s why I’m here. The mainstream media aren’t holding him accountable. Neither is Congress. So I’m not leaving Crawford until he’s held accountable. - Cindy Sheehan

There are things worth fighting for. And there are even some worth dying for. But Iraq is not one of them. - James Moore

The War Against Fundamentalism

by Cenk Uygur via Huffington Post

Here is a snip, go and read the rest.

'It is not acceptable to be against teaching valid science to our children because you think your Book tells you to. It is not acceptable to hate gay people because you think your Book tells you to. It is not acceptable to deny other citizens their privacy because you think your Book tells you to. It is not acceptable to be one-sided in dealing with the Middle East and drive us all into war because you think your Book tells you to. It is not acceptable to root for Armageddon and try to take steps towards getting there because you think your Book tells you to.

Our President thinks God talks to him. You know who thinks that? Crazy people. The Jewish fundamentalists Yigal Amir said he shot Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin because God told him to. Why does God only tell people to shoot other people or start wars? Why can’t He just tell them to go to the dentist or get their mom flowers? Why does it always have to involve death?

Thinking you talk to God doesn’t qualify you to lead the nation – it qualifies you for a mental institution. The time for accommodation has come to an end.

It's true. Anyone else who says they talk to God and he talks back to them...as apart from answering prayers...and he "tells" them to do something like kill someone or start a war, this person is classified a nut-case and either put under watch or institutionalized.

Just because their "Book" tells them something dosen't mean it's correct. Their "Book" was written by fallible humans, taken from acient Hebrew writings which had no vowels or punctuation. The Protestant "Book" is different than the Catholic "Book" and the Qu'ran is different than both. And if they really do follow their "Book", why is it that they don't take care of the poor and down-trodden?

So why is it that a grown man with half a brain...I know, I'm giving him alot of credit...can stand in front of an entire nation and tell everyone that God told him to do something, like attack a country that hasn't attacked us, and can get away with it?

Can you imagine the shit that would have hit the fan if Clinton had told the public that God told him to get a hummer from Monica? Damn, the country would have been covered in shit. Oh, wait, it is anyway, Bushshit!

I wonder if he or Laura will look at any of the letters that the Gold Star mothers delivered to the pig farm today?

Laura will have to read them to the idiot. He can't read. He's proved that by not being able to follow the telle-prompter.

But honestly, I think the letters will end up in the trash.
