I’m tired of reading things by people who hate W that begin with (or somewhere in the middle state) “As a Christian..,” or “I am a Christian.”
I don’t get it. Does being a Christian make you a better person?
If I began something with “as a Jew…,” people would make immediate assumptions. That I support Israel, that I hate all Arabs, that I’m rich….
Until a few years ago my closest friend assumed that some people gave my father money to go to college when in actuality he had a math and basketball scholarship, but it was the depression so he had to support his parents and go to night school. My friend wasn’t sure what people, but she knew that Jews support each other. In the ideal we do, in reality….
I feel that if W wins the next election, and I assume that if he doesn’t win it with votes, he’ll find some way to win it as he did the last election, we’ll all have to sign loyalty oaths to our nation. That would be sick enough, but in it we’d have to sign our loyalty to Christ.
Maybe not in the next four years, but in the four years after that when another Bush becomes President. Soon our elections will become symbolic and Barbara and Jenna will each have their turn with Paris Hilton as Secretary of State because our country will really be run by some white men who have sworn allegiance to the new monarchy.
This was my nightmare last night. Just thought I’d share it, in the American way of sharing our feelings while not confronting our problems.
