Among other things Rich links to the devastating expose in GQ Magazine of how intimately the evangelical religion of George Bush was implicated in the commission of the evil stupidity of the Iraq War.
Each of the Briefings has a Bible verse prominently displayed on it, obviously chosen to exhort our former President into continuing his illegal war (each link should take you to a picture of a cover, or see them all at once here):
Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? (excerpt from) Isiah 6:8
Suddenly the fingers of a human hand appeared & wrote on the plaster of the wall, near the lampstand in the royal palace. The king watched the hand as it wrote… This is what the words mean: Mene: God has numbered the days of your reign & brought it to an end. Tekel: You have been weighed on the scales & found wanting. Peres: Your kingsdom is divided... Daniel 5:5-28
The king is not saved by a mighty army; A warrior is not delivered by great strength. A horse is a false hope for victory; Nor does it deliver anyone by its great strength. Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, On those who hope for His lovingkindness, To deliver their soul from death. Psalm 33:16-19
Don’t ever let anyone try to claim that this war was not at least in part a Crusade in the minds of the batshit evangelical Christians who are even now firmly entrenched in the upper echelons of our military, and despite some improvement still a major force in our civilian government too.
