"With the collapse of communism (and Nazism before it) mankind's utopian fantasies have returned to a religious hue. The Armageddonites (and their co-believer extreme fundamentalists in the Muslim and Jewish worlds) are the new dreamers of bringing paradise to earth, just, however, with the need to eliminate much of the human race first.
In America we have now this strange alliance, the Israeli Likud settler lobby gets money, guns and political cover. In exchange millions of born again "rapture" evangelicals gain fulfillment, believing that they are helping God to end the world during their lifetimes and thereby will get a quick pass to heaven "without dying" (no judgment day). Oh, and with the death of all Jews (and the rest of the human race) who do not convert to their faith. Their "Heaven" incidentally, is sort of socialist with no inequality and everyone rich. A popular Gaither Singers song describes how one won't need to cut the grass in Heaven."
Dear Friends, this frightening excerpt came from the link shown at the end of this post. It is in dramatic contrast to the previous post for which I'm sorry.
These evangelical crazies, many of whom are in high political office in America, want a nuclear war in the Middle East now! Why? So that they can get to heaven without dying! Sound reasonable to you?
Of course, this group of deranged religious fanatics have things in common with the amoral American and European military-industrialists who want endless war because it's a good way for the wealthy to make enormous profits. Sound reasonable to you?
Then, of course, there are the American imperialists who want America to control the whole world so that some Americans can enjoy the very best that this world has to offer (and get cheap fuel for their 4WDs), a task which is already well advanced. Sound reasonable to you?
My hope for world peace has suffered a sudden, dramatic reversal!
