Four More Years

I pledge that I never will tie myself to parties who want to destroy Christianity… We want to fill our culture again with the Christian Spirit… we want to burn out all the recent immoral developments in literature, in the theatre, and in the press – in short, we want to burn out the poison of immorality which has entered into our whole life and culture as a result of liberal excess during past years.

If I didn't know better I would think this was a quote from George W. Bush. If he never said exactly these words I would think it was for reasons such as these that all those southern evangelicals voted him back into power.

Only it wasn't George W. who said this.

Adolf Hitler said this in 1922.

That's right. The German Christians who supported the Third Reich have a whole lot in common with the American Christians who support Bush.

Oh, and I should add that the same applies to those Canadian Christians who think it's their duty to vote for the Conservative Party.
