The Christian right

George W Bush was born again in 1985. When he became president, God told him to go to war against Iraq. More than 600 000 people died in this war.

The Christian right gave its full support to the American terror bombings in Vietnam. More than 2 million people died.

A priest blessed the crew who dropped the atom bombs over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. He later woke up and said: “I never preached a single sermon against killing civilians to the men who were doing it. I was brainwashed! It never entered my mind to protest publicly the consequences of these massive air raids. I was told it was necessary—told openly by the military and told implicitly by my church’s leadership. (To the best of my knowledge no American cardinals or bishops were opposing these mass air raids. Silence in such matters is a stamp of approval.)”

The Christian right in the United States supports Donald Trump. They want to invest even more money on rearmament and better nuclear weapons. They prepare for the final battle at Armageddon.

They are also opposed to contraception and abortion; they say yes to life. Full of fervor, they are spreading their message of love across the world.
