A Question for Christian Conservatives

Doesn't it bother you in the least bit that George W. Bush put his hand on a Bible, swore an oath to uphold and defend the Constitution, and then promptly ignored that oath?

He put his hand on a Bible.

His hand. On a Bible.

Yet...he's signed campaign finance reform legislation (which he even admitted was unconstitutional), prescription drug socialism, "No Child Gets Ahead" federalization of the schools, launched a war in Iraq without securing a Congressional declaration of war, engaged in warrentless wiretaps, and condones torture - all in violation of the limits imposed by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

He swore an oath...with his hand on a Bible.

This doesn't bother you?

Do you think your God will understand that you had to vote for someone who disrepects His Word in such a way? Is your God a moral relativist, who says "Thou shalt not...", but really means, "Thou shalt not...unless you have a really good reason"? Should the Ten Commandments really be called the Ten Recommendations? Why do you expect non-Christians to take your faith seriously, when apparently you don't either?

He swore an oath with his hand on a Bible.

And it bothers precious few of you.

I don't care if he poops on the Bible and sets it on fire (and I am a Christian).

But I guess I am a little special. :)

I grow more and more frustrated with the socialism in this country every day. I think that you have certainly helped me out in that territory, Jayman.

Keep up the good work

Wow, good point man. I never thought of it that way.

Christians are well known for their cognitive dissonance and their ability to hold two or more mutually exclusive or contradictory beliefs at once.

I bet that alot of Christians would fallaciously argue that he has a hihger oath to God than to America, and that he isnt betraying "gods rules" (which again would be false).

But thats how the Christians would justify it.

Funny that Christians think an atheist would never make a good president, when an atheist would never have a higher authority or entity to swear an oath to other than the country he is serving, yet a Christian must pledge MORE allegiance to his god than to his country.

Its a good thing Christianity is finally faltering in America. Just wait another generation or two.

Even if he did have a "higher oath" to God than to country, it wouldn't justify using His Word to perpetrate a lie.

Unless God likes liars....

Yes, it does bother me. (Just to clarify, I would consider myself a theological conservative, not a political conservative.)
