Once, they hailed him a leader, some out of respect, some out of fear.
Then, the crowds turned on him, calling for his death. A kangaroo trial took
place, one where his homeland didn't really want jurisdiction but the real
dictator didn't want his blood on his hands so he kept throwing the trial
back at them.
Then, in a hurried decision, he was killed, before sundown and right before
a religious holiday.
No, I'm not talking about Saddam Hussein, I'm talking about Jesus Christ.
Of course, the Bush administration doesn't hold history to any regard, nor are
they truly Christians, although they claim to be, so how or why would they see
the similarities. But I do. Not that the two men are or were anything alike.
One was good, one was evil. But the situations seem the same surrounding
their deaths. I bring this up out of fear, fear that the most recent murder,
that of Saddam Hussein, won't end in the same type of deification Christ's
So, like Pilate, as we Americans try and wash the blood of Hussein off of
our hands (and make no mistake, his death is squarely our doing, and it cost us
almost half-a-trillion dollars) we need to ask ourselves, what did this man do
to us to deserve this, the ultimate form of punishment?
This tour de force of ignorance continues with twisted logic, twisted statements and lies. I guess in this case it might be okay to state "For Christ's sake, shut up moron." Sorry Mom.
