Jesus’ General has let his “inner Frenchman” get the better of him:
Forgive me for interrupting, but for the last few hours I’ve been struggling with a post juxtaposing the Christian right’s obsession with sexual morality and theocracy with their lack of concern about torture and murder. I can’t finish. It’s too painful to address satirically.
“America has lost its soul,” The General writes, and then goes on to chronicle our nation’s horrific use of torture, death squads and chemical weapons in the name of fighting terrorism and promoting freedom.
He grimly concludes:
I can’t bear the thought of my grandson living in the world these bastards are creating. We have to do all we can to defeat them.
Which raises the question… are we progressives really willing to do all we can to defeat them? I mean… everything?
