Hey, George! God On Line Two

So, I see that G.W.'s own church is urging a pull-out of US troops from Iraq.
Jim Winkler, top executive of the United Methodist Board of Church and Society, said that protesting the war is similar to the church's work to promote other social movements. The church took prophetic positions on civil rights, women's rights and nuclear disarmament before Congress acted, he noted.

"It has taken time for Congress to catch up," Winkler said. "We may be seeing another example of that."

Well, it's just one more thing in the seemingly endless list of 'say, here's another way the ruling party is full of hypocrites'.

Of course, they're not really hypocritical at all. Religious organizations -- and conservative organizations en masse -- are there to tell the proles what to do and how to vote. They serve our masters; our masters do not serve them.

I'm always - and you'd think by now we'd all be too calloused for this sort of thing - left sad by people who are waging war doing what they do and still being able to say "Jesus" without their tongues turning black.
