Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither, and lose both.
-- Benjamin Franklin

I haven’t posted much recently: the post previous to this one drained me emotionally, and two weeks of camp and moving stuff to my son’s college has drained me physically. Sometimes the news is too goofy to resist, though.

Proving my point that the “Christian Right” is neither, Pat Robertson has called for the US to assassinate a foreign leader.

With Reverend Robertson a minister and all, you might think he had heard or “Thou Shalt Not Kill.” Or, perhaps, he might be familar with Matthew 22:34-40, where Jesus explains the second greatest commandment.

I think if you boil it down to its essentials, what Jesus taught was humility, love for God, and love for mankind. The current Evangelical/Christian so-called Conservative movement uses their christian label as justification for their prejudices and self-rightousness. That is the height of hubris, and the antithesis of what Jesus taught. In Jesus’ time, these people would have been the priests and Sadducees.
