Pat Robertson announced to millions of 700 Club viewers that he thinks Hugo Chavez, the democratically elected president of Venezuala should be murdered.
George W. Bush says things like “Bin Laden — dead or alive,” and “Bring ‘em on.” His lie-based invasion of Iraq has killed tens of thousands of human beings.
Isn’t it about time we realize that these men don’t agree with Jesus?
I call them Anti-Christians. It’s kind of like “Anti-Christ,” but with an “ians” on the end. Because the actions of Bush and the so-called “Christian Right” are not just un-Christian, they are directly in opposition to the teachings of Christ.
In Matthew 5,38-41 Jesus said:
“You have learnt how it was said: ‘Eye for eye and tooth for tooth.’ But I say to you, Offer the wicked man no resistance. If anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also; if a man takes you to law and would have your tunic, let him have your cloak as well. And if anyone orders you to go one mile, go two miles with him.”
In Mark 10,18, Jesus said:
“you know the commandments: you must not kill.”
In John 13,34-35, Jesus said:
“I give you a new commandment: love one another; just as I have loved you, you also must love one another. By this love you have for one another, everyone will know that you are my disciples.”
In Matthew 5, 43-46, Jesus said:
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy; But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those whose persecute you, so that you may be children of your Father in heaven; for he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the righteous and on the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have?”
But this last one makes it really clear that Pat and George don’t believe in Jesus. It’s from Matthew, 18,3:
“I tell you solemnly, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
If George and Pat bought Jesus as gospel, they’d be scared shitless that they weren’t going to make it into the kingdom of heaven. And they sure don’t act like men who are scared about their future.
So, Anti-Christian. Doesn’t it sound more accurate? I suggest we all start using the term. Tell it to friends. Spread the word.
