Nov. 2nd, 2005

Last year at this time life was very sad for me. Yes, I went to a great party with lots of friends, but I think I may have found out.. that there was no G-d? Kidding, but...

I went to a "Please Please G-d if you Exist Let Kerry Win" party...

One year down, three to go. Stupid Bush.

Yeah, because there's just no WAY that G-d would actually WANT Bush to be president, right? ;-)

right. glad you're catching on.

Just makes it that much funnier that we're friends when my sarcastic humor actually represents your position.

FWIW I do firmly believe that Bush was God's choice. Not just because he's a Christian, I also got that whole Biblical "God picks the leaders" deal going on.

Letting the poor drown, ignoring his responsibility as a steward of the earth, and covering up evidence of sadistic torture. Is this what qualifies a leader as Christian these days?

I mean, the guy took the country to war based on mistaken intelligence, appointed a fool to head FEMA, and tried to put an unqualified yes-woman on the Supreme Court.

I'd add that his closest supporters (Rove, Cheney, DeLay) are up to their necks in shady schemes; that he pushed huge deficits and debts on our generation to pay off his rich friends, that he ruined our country's relations with allies, and, worst of all, that he is determinedly undermining our freedom and liberty as Americans.

I take Bush's election win as a sign, not that G-d doesn't exist, but that you can't rely on G-d to save your butt. G-d doesn't save babies from dying of malnutrition, and G-d doesn't save nations from making really dumb electoral choices. We have to do it ourselves.

Side thought: I have a suspicious feeling that the whole "G-d picks the leaders" thing was promoted by...the leaders. No prophet anointed Bush.

What qualifies Bush as a Christian to me is the fact that he has a testimony of receiving salvation in Jesus Christ. It's not mine or anyone's place to doubt that.

Side thought: "Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which G-d has established. The authorities that exist have been established by G-d." is Romans 13:1, which was written by Paul, perhaps the furthest thing from a leader in his time. I didn't say any prophet annointed Bush or it (necessarily) made G-d happy that Bush is president, just that God put Bush in office "for such a time as this."

Or it could be to test us. Patience and perseverence kind of thing?

I know that you believe that. I really really really don't.

Seeing as it's written in Romans, I'm not the least bit surprised.

or that making Kerry president would invalidate humanity's free will.

I've got to comment on the assertion that leaders like Bush are there due to divine will. I'll post it on my page, since LJ's not letting me squeeze it all on yours.

There was this great clip from the cartoon American Dad (same creator as Family Guy, FYI). Basically it was W. getting a call from god, and god asks him if he would please stop mentioning his name in conversation, since he didn't want people to think they were affiliated.
