More stunning proof that Christians are easily duped into supporting blatant evil
The latest book of stunning revelations titled "Tempting Faith" by former Bush Administration insider David Kuo presents compelling first-hand evidence that the Christian Right was purposely duped into providing pivotal political support and cover for a host of crimes and excesses by Republican leaders and the Whitehouse. This book and the Foley fiasco are serving to awaken Christians to the undeniable fact that they have been deceived into abetting the evil deeds of duplicitous scoundrels, once again.
The events of recent years and the several millennia before them have provided us with comprehensive proof that religion is the chosen and purposeful tool of great deceivers. Whether we view the actions of the Temple priesthood of ancient Israel that conspired with Greco-Roman invaders, the sad and sordid history of the Vatican and Papacy, Christian crusaders and colonizers, injustices by leaders and followers of Islam, the oppression of Palestinians by the State of Israel, or the more recent activities of the so-called Christian Right and Republican Party, religious followers are regularly and easily misled into supporting obvious evil.
In recent years, I have produced stunning and comprehensive proof of purposeful deception in the canons of all three Faiths of Abraham and struggled to alert people to this and to related upcoming events and situations. Due to "poisoning of the waters" by deluded religious leaders and followers over the centuries, most have greeted my efforts with derision or indifference, thereby failing to pay attention long enough to discern the accuracy of my research and assertions. Starting with the perfectly timed Atlantic hurricanes of 2004 and 2005, a small number of people, some of them in government leadership positions, began to recognize the truth of my conclusions and assertions. The events of the last year-plus, starting with the ramifications from hurricanes Katrina and Rita, have helped to sweep away many of the facades erected by the Bush-Cheney crew and cohorts. Many of their deceptions have been exposed, their greed and arrogance proven, the myth of their competence destroyed, and most recently the depths of their duplicity and hypocrisy have been illuminated by a series of stunning revelations.
Nonetheless, the so-called Christian Right has continued faithfully supporting them, in spite of mountains of evidence that should have dissuaded any clear-thinking soul. The recent non-stop flood of stunning evidence leaves little doubt that the so-called liberals and the left were 100% correct about the Bush-Cheney crew. Despite assertions to the contrary, conservatives and the Christian Right are now exposed as having arrogantly and foolishly supported blatantly evil scoundrels. We now have proof, beyond disproof, that Republican leaders viewed them as little more than marks and dupes to be milked of their faith, money, political support, and the lifeblood of their son's and daughter's on the battlefields of Bush's and Cheney’s deceptive wars.
It is a sad but true statement that deceived and deluded Christians are much more responsible for the evils perpetrated by the Bush administration than any other group. They have arrogantly and foolishly supported those who simply pretended to have the same beliefs, even though their deeds provided stark and irrefutable evidence to the contrary. My recent articles and book expound upon the reasons why religious followers are so easily duped into doing and supporting blatant evil. Now the events of recent weeks have provided stunning evidence that these assertions and conclusions are true. Christians and conservatives must now come to grips with the sickening reality of the great harm they have caused to everyone else because of their blind support of scoundrels who merely pretended to serve the Creator, as a purposeful ploy to gain wealth and power.
Because of blind support from the so-called Christian Right and conservatives, the current administration has managed to curtail civil liberties, start the war in Iraq based on obvious lies, legalize domestic spying, cause death and injury to hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians, kidnap, torture, and imprison alleged terrorists without due process, reverse and/or stymie many of the social and environmental gains of recent years, and browbeat a compliant congress, military, intelligence services, and news media into providing cover for and/or directly supporting obvious crimes. These are the true so-called "values" that have resulted from faith in a fantasy messiah being merged with the equally strong delusions of money and politics.
Now that we are again presented with irrefutable proof of the folly and dangers of blind faith, the other conclusion that must follow is that its prevalence throughout these religious canons is evidence of purposeful deception. Not only are religious followers easily duped, but I and many others have produced stunning and comprehensive proof that this is the primary purpose of religion. Though these books, research, and articles are voluminous, those of faith turned a blind eye and deaf ear to remain enthralled to obvious lies. In the face of mountains of evidence to the contrary, they somehow concluded that the Creator of all knowledge and wisdom preferred that they remain ignorant and willing thralls of clearly duplicitous religious and political leaders.
Remember the saying that "the truth will set you (and others) free?" How does "opening one's eyes to the truth,” relate to "making the blind see again" or "shining the light" or "illuminating a subject?" Notice the inherent symbolism associated with this supposed New Testament "miracle?" Recasting the symbolism of earlier Hebrew texts as literal events and supernatural concepts in the New Testament is one of the central deceptions associated with Christianity. The time has arrived for those "blinded" by faith and religion to “open their eyes” and "see the light" (understand the truth).
What then is the purpose of "faith" but to prevent otherwise good people from seeking to understand truth and wisdom?
