Pat Robertson

I hope the call for the assassination of Venezuelan President, Hugo Chavez, by Pat Robertson will wake some of those Christian conservatives that have a real understanding of what Christ really represented. Many of us know that Pat Robertson’s Christ is a Christ made up according to what his mind wants him to be. Apparently his Christ advocates violence. This might be a common trait among many other evangelists. It is scary to concede that this group was instrumental in putting a man in the White House. The self outing of Pat Robertson’s state of mind raises a serious question about the self claimed born again Christian in the White House. Can we see traces of Pat Robertson in him?

Cindy Sheehan

Yes, many of us agree that Cindy Sheehan's stand has that type of moral courage and determination seen in Rosa Park’s refusal to give up her seat on a bus In Montgomery Alabama, when many looked the Other way at the Jim Crow laws. Too many are looking the other way at a presidency that lied us into war. Perhaps Cindy Sheehan’s protest will give a true definition of a noble cause. For many of us Cindy represents that type of hope and light thatcould ignite a path toward truth in 2005 very much like that stand taken 50 years ago by that brave soul on that bus. There are those that are concern with giving comfort to the enemy, while they give a false sense of security to the people in this nation concerning a cause for being in Iraq. Imagine a western town with a sheriff, that has 18 year old off-springs, asking town people to send their 18 year olds, and not his ,to join a posse to catch a ring of killers that did their killings in another state. Even though the sheriff off-springs stayed in town alive and well, he called the deaths of the town people’s 18 year olds a noble cause. Years later it was discovered that the sheriff was really trying to avenge a murder of a mistress in that other state.
