I agree with this petition. It makes me sick to see politicians to use God to show that they are right, or appeal to religious people into thinking that they are religious and God-fearing too. Its all PR.

If God does not take sides, then why are these people using Jesus for their own political agenda? It is my understanding that there are things in both parties that Jesus would/wouldn't agree with. However, he probably doesn't care what they say because he wanted people to be his disciples, not elephants or donkeys.

I mean, who has ever heard the song "God Bless the Netherlands"?

You gotta ask for the blessing to receive the blessing.....

The petition has got nothing to do with an understanding of God, just a counter to the "Religious Right".


Skip the petition, open the Bible and read for yourself.....

Jesus was a Democrat. He rode into Jerusalem on a donkey, not an elephant.

One of the most disturbing things I've heard regarding Religion and politics was from the Woodward book about GW Bush. Apparantly when Woodward asked GW why he didn't consult his father GW Sr. on the issue of Iraq, GW Jr. resonded with this:

"I consulted a Higher Father"

Excuse me, but maybe my 11 years of Catholic Schooling taught me the wrong Bible, but I honestly don't think that God or Jesus would go to war with Iraq, let alone anyone for that matter. It seems very hypocritical to use the word Higher Father and War in the same sentence, At least the Higher Father I believe in. To me this is no different than Terrorists using their God to go to "war" with us. To me it's the same thing.

God is a republican... I don't see where the debate is... Zeus was a democrat though... Odin was a libertarian.

You know...I like Jesus and God, it is just their fan club that I don't like!
