Charlie Rangel is of the Devil

You’re either with us or against us in the war on tyranny, and Democrat Charlie Rangel apparently is against us. After Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez called Bush the Devil at the UN in New York, Rangel said, "You don’t come into my country, you don’t come into my congressional district, and you don’t condemn my president."

While I don’t take Chavez to be serious, I think he is on the right track in comparing Bush to the Devil. Bush lied about WMD so he could murder Iraqis and steal their oil, violating the 6th, 8th, and 9th Commandments. I do consider it murder because he knew the inspectors had no evidence of weapons of mass destruction, and because he himself said recently that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. By all indications the war has not saved more innocent lives than it has taken. The Gulf War had long since ended. If you go in unprovoked and start killing people, that’s murder. And it’s not enough to say Hussein planned to kill us. Only God can read minds. The same reasoning applies with Iran.

And it’s not the troops who are committing murder. They’re hired guns. It’s the one who gave the order. Support the troops. Give them adequate armor, medical care, and keep them away from the deadly Depleted Uranium. Bring them home.

My understanding of evil is that it is simply the absence of light. When you think it’s okay to lie, murder, and steal, you are in deep spiritual darkness. I wouldn’t say that Bush is the Devil, but I would say that he is of the Devil, until and unless he repents and changes his evil ways. By this definition, I think it’s also safe to say that Charlie Rangel is of the Devil, because he is shielding Bush from the light. Of course, you could say that we are all of the Devil to some degree, and you’d be right. But I think Rangel, by attacking Chavez, is a big part of a serious problem.

Chavez was ok at the U.N. with what he did, but he went to far when he made personal appearances and made the mistake of thinking that an applause from an international group at the U.N. meant that the response would be the same on the streets outside.

Bush has done his worst to try and isolate, bully, and demonise Chavez.

But Chavez made a big mistake playing into it on an American street.

Put the whole thing in context, Bush wrong, Chavez Wrong, Rangel wrong and now Cleland wrong.
