Perhaps much of this comes from watching many documentaries and general observation of a way of life of our brothers to the south. It has been very frustrating to read articles like this in the news: “'George, go and end tyranny,' Bush says God instructed him”

U.S. President George W. Bush allegedly told Palestinian leaders that God has guided his war against terrorism, a new documentary series reveals.
Bush said God advised him to invade Afghanistan and Iraq, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and deputy prime minister Nabil Shaath say in the BBC-funded Elusive Peace: Israel and the Arabs.
In the film, the leaders recall their first meeting with Bush in 2003, and the president's promise to bring them a Palestinian state with God's blessing.
Shaath recalls: "President Bush said to all of us: 'I am driven with a mission from God. God would tell me, 'George, go and fi ght those terrorists in Afghanistan.' And I did, and then God would tell me, 'George, go and end the tyranny in Iraq.' And I did. And now, again, I feel God's words coming to me, 'Go get the Palestinians their state and get the Israelis their security, and get peace in the Middle East.' And by God I'm gonna do it.' "
Abbas remembers Bush's pledge at their June 2003 meeting at the Egyptian resort of Sharm al-Sheikh: "I have a moral and religious obligation. So I will get you a Palestinian state."
White House spokesperson Scott McClellan dismissed the allegations Thursday night as "absurd" and said the president has "never made such comments."
What I am tired of is not the ignorant, lying, terrifying leading of this nation…what I am sick of is the abuse of the name of our Lord and Savior, the connection of Jesus Christ to the hateful, ignorant actions of this government! It seems that the Christian Right is very happy to ignore lies, stupidity, murder and human sacrifice in the name of 'freedom'... i guess the people are happy in producing this kind of generation: SIGH.....
