The Crusade on the Holy Land

I decided to check out what was up with the wingnuts over at World Net Daily. It's usually good for a chuckle, but I especially liked their book review of Beyond Iraq. Over at Amazon, there's an interesting little theological debate going on in the comments section for Beyond Iraq.

I found an interview with the author of Beyond Iraq , Michael D. Evans, and here's a taste of his viewpoint.

The church is the only moral compass for the nation. It is a measuring stick for the behavior and attitudes of a nation...a light on a hill. Not only is it a moral compass, but the church possesses the most precious gift of all - hope - the true cure for the empty souls of tens of millions of children of Islamic fundamentalists attempt to recruit as human bombs.

God has called the church to be a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation. It is not a request; it is a command and a challenge, and a promise, as well. The church has a Great Commission.

Had the church fulfilled the "Judea and Samaria" portion of the command, 9/11 would never have happened. Born-again, Bible-believing Arabs don't blow up innocent people, Christians or Jews. This is the breeding ground from which has grown the H-bomb (human bomb.) Any attempt to root out global terrorism without plowing the soil in which it grows will only serve to spread the seed of terrorism even more quickly.

Mr. Evans thinks the real problem is Islam and we just need to extinguish that religion. What's more, he finds so much in his Bible readings to encourage his little delusions.

I'm concerned that if Bush is re-elected that fuckwits equivalent to Mr. Evans are going to continue to guide our foreign policy.

In my last post I referred to Jonathan Dimbleby's article outlining some rational steps to improve the world.

But what hope is there when we have morons like Evans calling for a new series of Crusades? Religious morons like Mr. Evans are a greater threat to the US than Osama Bin Laden.
