I have a theory that I would like to discuss and receive some feedback.
The subject of prohibitions (abortions, same sex marriages, death with dignity and stem cell research) are all in the minds of many Americans who are very involved in their Christian doctrines. They somehow feel that there is something wrong with being able to make these choices on their own without the governmentâ€™s permission.
We all know that when the first social prohibition was put into the Constitution by way of the 18th Amendment, it took a new Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) to enforce the new law and they failed to consider the crime cartel that developed within the American voters to drink anyway. It wasnâ€™t the prohibition that failed but the enforcement.
So how can these Christians ever hope to get these prohibitions made into law when they know the enforcement will never work? We have seen our federal enforcement agencies fail to enforce the laws within the realm of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. The A.T.F. flexed their gun power at Waco and did nothing but burn alive many Americans.
We have seen our Federal Agencies overpower the freedoms of many Americans and it is not a pretty picture. Our Internal Revenue can take Americans to trial when they do not pay their taxes. Many of these non-payers have their hands into the federal budget and will absolutely take what they need through welfare without putting anything back. That is called being a thief in my book, but thatâ€™s another commentary.
How are we as a Nation of Federal Laws, going to enforce the prohibitions being lined up by Christian America? In the past we saw armies of Christians go to battle with Islam in the Middle East by a private army called â€œThe Crusaders.â€ Then followed a group of very religious knights who wandered all over the Middle East and they were called â€œThe Knights Templars.â€ This combination of Christian warriors massacred many innocent people all over the Middle East and was considered â€œjustifiedâ€ as these murders were done in the name of Jesus Christ. We saw Spanish armies rape and pillage through North, Central and South America killing millions as they push their way to find gold.
Have we now seen the beginning of another Christian army this time in America?
Hal Brown did a wonderful commentary on Blackwater and I was so impressed by the information I bought the book and am reading about the development of a private army to protect our American people abroad and now at home.
Iâ€™ve been taught to follow the money when I see a new system in development and the money for this new private army comes from the billionaire Erik Prince.
Mr. Prince represents a massive movement of Evangelical/Christian groups who have in their agenda to pass all the prohibitions mentioned in my first paragraph. My first question was â€œhow many Congressmen are involved in this movement and why are they allowing money to be spent on Blackwater instead of funding our soldieâ€™rs safety equipment?â€ Is this part of the surge that Bush is pushing in Iraq?
There are too many questions as to why a Christian financed army is needed anywhere to represent America. When the war in Iraq is over, will these private warriors be brought home and put in the Homeland Security to enforce the new prohibitions passed by our federal government?
Iâ€™ve Googled â€œBlackwaterâ€ and have read all their good deeds and actions but under the Bush Administration in conjunction with the Christian Coalition, my doubts about the legality and ethics of this, stand out as just another cheap movement to get those prohibitions into our laws. They have the enforcement all lined up and it will put America in the arms of a police state run by Christians. Am I the only one who finds this dangerous? Iâ€™ve listened to a lot of comments about the massacre at V.T. and the words â€œFestering Angerâ€ popped up several times.
Where does this festering anger come from? Some say the hypocrisy found in the corruption in the White House. Iâ€™m upset by it but am working to find solutions to stop the rage and, hopefully the corruption, in America. There is anger in all of us when our dreams of individual freedoms die in our government and then in our local laws and then in our schools and homes.
I have much more to research on this private army and I can only hope Iâ€™m on the wrong track. The thought of an armed Christian Crusade representing America abroad and at home would be the final straw in breaking down the Constitution for all Americans. No one American can act against such a movement but a team of active Americans can stop this utter nonsense from developing. I need help here folksâ€¦â€¦â€¦
