Beatitudes: A “Godless” Jesus?

Whoever Jesus Was, He Wasn’t A Petty Partisan

Like Todd Wilkinson, many are sickened by the ongoing (and escalating) hijacking of every core precept within our originating belief system.  (Years ago, Yusuf Islam expressed the same about his.)  Current (U.S.) society is unceasingly blanketed with renewed perversions of sacred text, which seek to institutionalize Social Darwinism and Orwellianism – in Jesus’ name.  (“This is an impressive crowd, the haves and the have-mores.  Some people call you the elite.  I call you my base.” It’s not torture when we implement all the darkest historical practices.  It’s “enhanced interrogation.”)  Indeed, “they are quick to persecute those who disagree with their politically-informed interpretations of scripture,” since an exclusive agenda must be rationalized – to whatever extremes are necessary – in order that the “fittest” of the “chosen” may continue to update the rules.  In their eyes, the meek may inherit the earth, but only as tillers of the soil.  Ever-expanding lawns of heavenly mansions will need to be cultivated, and the lowest-level subjects/servants will be content – but only after they finally accept these predestined provisions.  (12/25/2009)

    How Karl Rove Played Politics While People Drowned:
    “I could not believe that the president of the United States, staged by Karl Rove himself, had come down to the city of New Orleans and basically put up a stage prop. It was like you had gone to a studio in California and filmed a movie. They put the props up and the minute we were gone they took them down. All the dump trucks were gone. All the Coast Guard people were gone. It was an empty spot with one little crane. It was the saddest thing I have ever seen in my life. At that moment I knew what was going on and I’ve been a changed woman ever since. It truly changed my life.”
