Not in my Bible

Hi all,

I've been away from ther blogosphere for a while for various reasons, but I'm finding a bit more time these days to devote to my computer. So, let's start by introducing you am interesting blog I discovered this afternoon. The name peaked my interest right off the bat...

Not in my Bible

That begins with an excellent quote from Sinclair Lewis:

"When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag, carrying a cross."

Boy, ain't that the truth! America's slide into fascism, bolstered in large part by the willingness of the rabid Christian right to play obediant flock to shepherd Bush, seems to becoming more apparant each and every day.

Then the blog has this to say...

This must be how decent Germans felt during the 1930s as they watched a cancer devour their country.

Indeed! But how many ordinary citizens in Hitler's Germany were unable to see the doors of fascism close until it was way too late? In a way, it was the regular German people who were unable at the time to SEE THE SIGNS, who allowed Hitler to take and maintain power, who must share some responsibility for his horrific crimes. Thus, the same thing can now be said of ordinary American citizens, who prefering creature comfort over learning the truth, who ignore or dismiss the reality of their government's crimes, also must share some responsibility for the carnage in Iraq and elsewhere.

This blogger who goes by the name of ChristianLibrul from Nashville, Tennessee, posts some interesting commentary from time to time, however, not being a fan of guns myself, I don't share many of his views in that regard.

However, it is refreshing to see that there are still some Christians out there who are beginning to see what the Bush Reich is planning, and blogs like Not in my Bible are testament to that.
