At War

AT WAR….Via TalkLeft, here are some excerpts from Bob Jones’ letter of congratulations to George Bush:

In your re-election, God has graciously granted America?though she doesn’t deserve it?a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. You have been given a mandate.

….Don’t equivocate. Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil. You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you.

….Undoubtedly, you will have opportunity to appoint many conservative judges and exercise forceful leadership with the Congress in passing legislation that is defined by biblical norm regarding the family, sexuality, sanctity of life, religious freedom, freedom of speech, and limited government. You have four years?a brief time only?to leave an imprint for righteousness upon this nation that brings with it the blessings of Almighty God.

Charming fellow, no?

Like I said before, some conservatives we can reason with, others we can’t. They consider themselves in holy war against us, and there’s nothing we can do except fight back. Needless to say, Bob Jones is one of the latter.
