God just loves war.
God is a war monger and probably ought to be on trial for war crimes. But then I don’t believe in such an entity. I have always argued that a person draws a deity that is merely a grand version of them self. And now Tony Blair explains backs that up while he explains his decision to play follow the leader with King Georgie.
Blair, who really ought to be removed from office, said that his god was involved in the plans to invade, bomb, blow up, main, murder and kill lots of people. How nice. Blair said “ I think if you have faith about these things, you realize that judgement is made by other people... and if you believe in God, its made by God as well.”
Hmm, the Prime Minister is saying that “other people” and “God” made the decision? Why exactly does he hold office then?
Supposedly Bush said the same thing before. He allegedly said: “God told me to strike at al Qaida and I struck them.”
Now Bush and Blair are both followers of the Bible. And the Bible is filled with atrocities and genocidal actions supposedly done on the instructions of Jehovah. Take the case where Jehovah instructed his terrorist followers to “put to the sword all the males... As for the women, the children, the livestock and everything else in the city, you may take these as plunder for yourselves.”
When a fellow named Achan was a bad boy the Bible says his children and his cattle were stoned to death as part of his punishment. Nice one God!
Among the genocidal victims of Jehovah were 12,000 people of Ai, all the Gibeonites, the people of Makkedah, the Lihnahites, the people of Lachish, the Eglonites, the Hebronites, the Debirites and many, many more. I don’t know if anyone has done a census of the victims of genocide in the Old Testament but it would be in the hundreds of thousands easily.
Of course Jehovah was quite happy to slaughter people by the millions on a rather regular basis. He killed all the first born of the Egyptians --- supposedly. And we can’t forget the flood where he wiped out the population of the planet and all life except two of each kind and Noah and his family.
When he wasn’t ordering his followers to slaughter people, or killing them himself, he was sending down angelic hit men to do the job. In Second Kings:19:35 he sent an angel down who killed 185,000 people.
