What Would Jesus Do?

Apparently he would put an M-16 bead on your pumpkin head and pull the trigger:

Military Evangelism Deeper, Wider Than First Thought

The executive director of Military Ministry, retired US Army Major General Bob Dees, wrote in the organization's October 2005 "Life and Leadership" newsletter, "We must pursue our particular means for transforming the nation - through the military. And the military may well be the most influential way to affect that spiritual superstructure. Militaries exercise, generally speaking, the most intensive and purposeful indoctrination program of citizens...."

Moreover, Military Ministry's parent organization, Campus Crusade for Christ, has been re-distributing to military chaplains a DVD produced a decade ago where Tommy Nelson, a pastor at the Denton Bible Church in Denton, Texas, tells an audience of Texas A&M cadets and military officers when they join the military "then you are also in the ministry."

"I, a number of years ago, was speaking at the University of North Texas - it happens to be my alma mater, up in Denton, Texas - and I was speaking to an ROTC group up there, and when I stepped in I said, "It's good to be speaking to all you men and women who are in the ministry," and they all kind of looked at me, and I think they wondered if maybe I had found the wrong room, or if they were in the wrong room, and I assured them that I was speaking to men and women in the ministry, these that were going to be future officers," Nelson says in the DVD.


Now what exactly am I being militarily indoctrinated into as a U.S. citizen? Keep your guns and your God out of my face, shit-for-brains.

And here's one from the lost Katrina archives which reminds us that where soldiers go....so goes the word of God:

Soldiers Spooked By New Orleans Spirits

Of course we've since stopped eating each other in the Post-K environment....although I think Commander's still has the Filet of Mc Gehee Freshman available...it's just not listed on the menu.

"Spiritual Superstructure"?

It's phrases like that one which spook me.

Reminds me of a Nation article about Stephen Baldwin and the "Operation Straight Up" troupe. an "official arm" of the Defense Dept's "America Supports You" program.

That news clip creeped me out more than seeing a little girl ever could. Where ever a soldier goes, there goes the word of God? Cannibilism? Sheesh.
