Gott Mit Uns

This article from USA Today, brought to my attention by Shakespeare’s Sister here, tells us the following:

Pastor Russell Johnson paces across the broad stage as he decries the "secular jihadists" who have "hijacked" America, accuses the public schools of neglecting to teach that Hitler was "an avid evolutionist..."

Maybe someone should remind Pastor Johnson that Hitler claimed he was a Christian, and “Gott mit uns” was one of the mottos of the Nazi regime.

Good point, Viscount. Isn't is always the way with the political control freaks (i.e. dictators and would-be dictators) that they use God as a cover? All the more reason to distrust Bush and preserve that wall between church and state.

As the Max von Sydow character in Woody Allen's Hannah & Her Sisters says, if Jesus Christ came back today and saw what was being done in his name He'd never stop throwing up.

The irony is too much to bare. A guy like that is calling ME a "jihadist?" So what if Hitler was an evolutionist? He was also a "gravityist" and a "mathist." Believing in scientific fact probably had much less of an influence on his poliicies than believing in a religious dogma.
