Retired U.S. Army General John Abizaid, who headed the U.S. Central Command, says that the World could live with a nuclear-armed Iran. Well, he's not a war-monger. However, his premise is based upon Iran's wanting nuclear arms, which they really don't. They've only ever said that they might be pushed into obtaining them for the supposed deterrence against Israel (the "Zionist entity," they call it).
The RLC Church doesn't support Islam in any of its forms. Pacifists among the mystic Sufis may make them more amenable to the real message of Christ, but so long as they reject that true message (if they've been truly exposed to it), their headed off the right course.
Nevertheless, the remarks by the General are correct concerning the Iranian leadership not being anywhere near what they have been portrayed to be by the neocons.
There is great distortion and mischaracterization on both sides, even while both sides truly are not with God (walking in Godliness or even beginning to speak their way into heading in that direction).
Abizaid gets credit though for not being as misleading as the neocons—not as far from God's Kingdom.
In Venezuela, they are going to nationalize schools (including private) that refuse to teach the official program. Part of the required reading is Karl Marx's Das Kapital. Well, reading Marx is good for understanding where he went wrong. Reading Jesus sets it straight. They should read Adam Smith too within the biggest-picture context possible, which is Jesus's context. God is always more than mundane comprehension.
Hugo Chavez calls himself a Christian. He is far more egalitarian than the neocons, of course; however, how close to what Jesus had in mind is Hugo? Hugo is also a military man. Whereas, Jesus echoed the prophets' who called for peace.
Now, Chavez is doing what the U.S. does. His views in the general are not openly taught in public and private schools in the U.S. Rather, capitalism is generally lauded, and Jesus is forbidden in the public schools. So when the authorities and others in the U.S. criticize this move by Venezuela, they are of course being hypocritical.
Let all doctrines be compared and let the best be adopted. That's the Real Liberal Christian Church position. We know that the real tenets of Jesus are the best ever. They can stand up against any other arguments. The losers know this, so they censor Jesus's real message as much as they can get away with, as much as they can brainwash the masses.
Blackwater USA is being threatened with expulsion from Iraq for killing civilians. Blackwater USA is a privatized military. The Iraqi's are well within their rights and correct in expelling them, without doubt. Blackwater contends those being termed civilians were armed attackers.
The head of Blackwater USA is a self-styled conservative, Republican Christian. He's a false-Christian, an antichrist. He makes his living off death and destruction.
Western Canadian pine beetles have wiped out about 40 percent of British Columbia's marketable pine trees. When added to all the other things going on (floods, hurricanes, bird flu, etc.), it should be obvious that humanity is headed in the wrong direction.
Clinton and Obama Half-truths
Hillary Clinton calls for universal healthcare that isn't, and Barack Obama says Wall Street needs to be less self-centered.
Universal healthcare is universal. That means absolutely no one is turned away because of money. Clinton isn't calling for that. She's walking the tightrope for the sake of appealing to the widest selfish audience.
Obama is calling for a self-centered system to soften its heart but only so much. If self-centeredness is wrong, why call for partial softening? Call for full softening as Jesus did. Call for small-c communism. Call for the Christian Commons to displace the evils of usury, taxes, and the requirement for money for food and water and housing, etc. Call for the end of false profit, which all comes from evil.
Mitt Romney has said that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad should not be allowed to speak at the U.N. and should be indicted for war crimes.
If Ahmadinejad should be indicted for war crimes, which national leaders should not be? Certainly, George W. Bush and Dick Cheney and others would also have to be indicted. Ahmadinejad has done nothing comparable to the crimes of war waged by Bush and Cheney.
Romney is being disingenuous and pandering to the false-Zionists and false-Christian Zionists. It's all about money first.
"If mothers ruled the world, there wouldn't be any god-damned wars in the first place." The Fox Channel censored that statement by Sally Fields. They cut her off and turned the camera away in the middle of the word "god-damned." (Source: ThinkProgess.org)
War is damned by God. War is damning. It is a damnable thing. Those who promote it and engage in it run the risk of damnation. They must repent. They must stop what they are doing and turn to God. They must atone. They must stop being the devouring spirit that is satanic (devils incarnate; fallen angels; unenlightened).

Mohamed ElBaradei is the head of the U.N.'s IAEA. He says that U.S. Congressional Republicans have issued a false report that Iran has enriched uranium to weapons-grade. Add this to the conservative French government's saber rattling against Iran, even though Iran hasn't done anything to France or the U.S. and add it to George W. Bush's neocon's foaming at the mouth over the prospect of shocking Iran into a fetal position in the corner so that the serpents may move in and take over and one begins to see that even though Bush has zero political capital left and that there could be blood in America's streets when militant "freedom fighters" (the most armed civilian population in the world) start shooting fascists right here in the U.S., one sees that Bush may still be insanely evil enough to attack Iran.
Do you remember when Hillary Clinton and John Edwards were overheard whispering to each other that they needed to make the Democratic candidates' forums smaller? Well, now Dennis Kucinich and Mike Gravel have been deliberately not invited to some gatherings of the Democratic candidates before large groups of potential voters. Now you see why the members of the real Christian Church don't partake in voting in secular politics. It's sheer evil. Kucinich and Gravel are the two most outspoken peace candidates in the field. They've managed to pull the entire Party in the peace direction just by being there to talk peace. That's why Clinton and Edwards colluded to exclude them.
Are Clinton and Edwards the kind of people you want leading the flock? The Real Liberal Christian Church isn't going to follow them anywhere. We don't hear the consistent voice of Jesus Christ in what they say. We don't see him in what they are doing either.
"The United States on Tuesday suspended all land travel by U.S. diplomats and other civilian officials throughout Iraq, except in Baghdad's heavily fortified Green Zone," reported the Associated Press on September 18, 2007.
This plan has the stealthy effect of stopping people from speaking directly with Iraqis about the country? It's censorship. The occupiers don't want people finding out things and reporting back to the American people and the rest of the world. The occupiers want to cover up what they are doing, because what they are doing is sheer evil.
It is being done ostensibly to appease Iraqis enraged by Blackwater, the antichrist mercenary corporation sent by the sons of perdition to punish the Iraqis.
The following should appear at the end of every post:
According to the IRS, "Know the law: Avoid political campaign intervention":
Tax-exempt section 501(c)(3) organizations like churches, universities, and hospitals must follow the law regarding political campaigns. Unfortunately, some don't know the law.
Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are prohibited from participating in any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. The prohibition applies to campaigns at the federal, state and local level.
Violation of this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes. Section 501(c)(3) private foundations are subject to additional restrictions.
Political Campaign Intervention
Political campaign intervention includes any activities that favor or oppose one or more candidates for public office. The prohibition extends beyond candidate endorsements.
Contributions to political campaign funds, public statements of support or opposition (verbal or written) made by or on behalf of an organization, and the distribution of materials prepared by others that support or oppose any candidate for public office all violate the prohibition on political campaign intervention.
Factors in determining whether a communication results in political campaign intervention include the following:
- Whether the statement identifies one or more candidates for a given public office
- Whether the statement expresses approval or disapproval of one or more candidates' positions and/or actions
- Whether the statement is delivered close in time to the election
- Whether the statement makes reference to voting or an election
- Whether the issue addressed distinguishes candidates for a given office
Many religious organizations believe, as we do, that the above constitutes a violation of the First Amendment of the US Constitution.
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
That said, we make the following absolutely clear here:
- The Real Liberal Christian Church and Christian Commons Project not only do not endorse any candidate for any secular office, we say that Christianity forbids voting in such elections.
- Furthermore, when we discuss any public-office holder's position, policy, action or inaction, we definitely are not encouraging anyone to vote for that office holder's position.
- We are not trying to influence secular elections but rather want people to come out from that entire fallen system.
- When we analyze or discuss what is termed "public policy," we do it entirely from a theological standpoint with an eye to educating professing Christians and those to whom we are openly always proselytizing to convert to authentic Christianity.
- It is impossible for us to fully evangelize and proselytize without directly discussing the pros and cons of public policy and the positions of secular-office holders, hence the unconstitutionality of the IRS code on the matter.
- We are not rich and wouldn't be looking for a fight regardless. What we cannot do is compromise our faith (which seeks to harm nobody, quite the contrary).
- We render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. We render unto God what is God's.
- When Caesar says to us that unless we shut up about the unrighteousness of Caesar's policies and practices, we will lose the ability of people who donate to us to declare their donations as deductions on their federal and state income-tax returns, we say to Caesar that we cannot shut up while exercising our religion in a very reasonable way.
- We consider the IRS code on this matter as deliberate economic duress (a form of coercion) and a direct attempt by the federal government to censor dissenting, free political and religious speech.
- It's not freedom of religion if they tax it.
And when they were come to Capernaum, they that received tribute money came to Peter, and said, Doth not your master pay tribute? He saith, Yes. And when he was come into the house, Jesus prevented him, saying, What thinkest thou, Simon? of whom do the kings of the earth take custom or tribute? of their own children, or of strangers? Peter saith unto him, Of strangers. Jesus saith unto him, Then are the children free. (Matthew 17:24-26)
