bushfish.... what's next the abomination of desolation?
I found a new link to my site.... preacherruss at Glocality..... see the link in the links section.
I am amazed and humbled that someone would even link to me....
I find myself alienated from the Christian right more and more…. I used to think I was one until a few years back. I guess the luster started to tarnish with Bush sr. handing over the election to Clinton. Bush sr. never had a clue his statement about unwed mother and such would be….offensive. So, Clinton became president and soon she will run again.
I do not consider my self a Bush basher. I kind of like the guy. I don’t agree with all his policies, as I think he is distracting us with social security, while he ignores national security as in securing our borders. I think his real problem is he is not a great communicator. He seems to be reluctant to have a real press conference. Not that anyone in the press knows what that is anymore.
A while back I wrote about a vision I had about the perfect Christian, made in our image.
It was a false god that many seem to have as the goal of their faith. It is a false god of religious deception. Now, here is an example of the religious right deifying (without even realizing they are doing it) the president! They have replaced Christ Jesus with Bush.
In the middle of the fish is a small cross or the Greek letters "ΙΧΘΥΣ" or "ιχθυς" which means Ichthys or simply, fish.
But, to the Christian being persecuted it meant something very significant. It meant, Iēsous Christos Theou Huios Sōtēr meaning "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior".
So, if you look at this fish you will not see Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior, but Bush.
Can you see why this is offensive?
