With God on our side

CNN: Rumsfeld defends general who commented on war and Satan.

Det gäller amerikanske generalen Boykin, deputy undersecretary of defense, som vet vems uppdrag han har:
"This summer, Boykin was promoted to deputy undersecretary of defense, with a new mission for which many say he is uniquely qualified: to aggressively combine intelligence with special operations and hunt down so-called high-value terrorist targets including bin Laden and Saddam.

But that new assignment may be complicated by controversial views Boykin — an evangelical Christian — has expressed in dozens of speeches at churches and prayer breakfasts around the country...

“Well, is he [bin Laden] the enemy? Next slide. Or is this man [Saddam] the enemy? The enemy is none of these people I have showed you here. The enemy is a spiritual enemy. He’s called the principality of darkness. The enemy is a guy called Satan.”

Why are terrorists out to destroy the United States? Boykin said: “They’re after us because we’re a Christian nation”.
Och inte bara han, utan även hans chef:
"Boykin also routinely tells audiences that God, not the voters, chose President Bush: “Why is this man in the White House? The majority of Americans did not vote for him. Why is he there? And I tell you this morning that he’s in the White House because God put him there for a time such as this.”

"Boykin has made it clear that he takes his orders not from his Army superiors but from God — which is a worrisome line of command."

Då skulle man ju kunna låta Allah och Gud kriga i sina himlar och så blev det fred på jorden! Usch för religion. Vore inte världen en bättre plats utan?

Monica: jag är ingen vidare teolog men jag har alltid trott att Allah och Gud var samma person? Jag har just gjort några äreröriga kommentarer om det där på http://www.karlsson.at/ordet.htm#religion
