Biblical expert? Is there such a thing?

Streak said...

He has to be one, Tony. Just ask him.

Does this also mean that God wants some to be poor and we should thank God that it's not us? Is this some sort of this-world version of Pre-Destination?

Well, that's what the Pharisee said about the publican. "Thank God I'm not like that SINNER over there."

PLEASE GOD

There was no need to go to war
Against Iraq, remember,
So now the same lot argues for
Iran attack, the timbre

Ratcheting toward a fever pitch
Just as before the day,
As justified by bait-and-switch
Iraq fell by the way.

Recall there was a false report
About an "evil axis,"
To set the stage, home fears to court,
When, those with minor access

To news about the world beyond
Their navel, clear could see
That the alleged, purported bond
Was not reality.

Then also blaming old Sadaam
(I think I´ll call him Gramps)
For 9-11, with inference drawn,
So obfuscation´s champs

Asserted he possessed a means
(And further the intent)
To bomb the "homeland": split your sheens
Laughing, no joke was meant.

(After a decade underneath
Assault, it was unlikely,
Yet the US, in love with death
Like heard him taunting "strike me,"

Though now in retrospect we learn
He secretly had offered
To "slip away," but state concern
Preferred a war be suffered.)

Today the same distortions rise,
The same conflations based
Never on fact--to clenched-shut eyes
True reason is a waste.

If these United States again
Attack sans provocation
Save false-contrived, then, gentlemen,
Please God to damn my nation.
