<God really has Blessed America!>

All of America, or just the 51% who voted for Bush?

The 48% who voted for Kerry, does God bless them, too? Or must they repent first, and promise never again to vote for anyone who approves of abortion or stem cell research?

Or how about the citizens of Fallujah and Ramadi? Today, God is blessing these cities with incoming artillery and airstrikes, as a direct result of God blessing America with Bush. Men, women, children, God's blessings raining down on them all, with the U.S. military being God's agent on earth, I guess.

We can assume that God isn't blessing Hungary, as of today, since those wimpy sissies are withdrawing from Iraq.

The Pope made it clear who God does and doesn't bless. Bush holds the record, as Governor of Texas, for the most executions. Bush wages a war that doesn't quite meet God's standards (as defined by Catholic doctrine). But Bush gets an audience with the Pope anyway. The Catholics politely forget about their Just War Doctrine, and don't mention their opposition to the death penalty. But.....Kerry supports abortion, and gets denied communion. All life is precious, but some lives are more precious than others. I guess.

God Bless America. We are the Chosen People (and maybe the Israelis too), and God loves us much better than He loves the French and Mexicans and Ethiopians. That's what God meant, in His parable of the Good Samaritan, right?

And our blessed leader talks to God, and the voices tell Bush who needs invading next, and which cities next require the blessing of our artillery and smart bombs. And we are surrounded with the warm glow that comes from certainty and faith and victory. And God blesses us, and blesses our killing. I guess.
