On September 11, 2001 New York city was attacked by Muslim fundamentalists and lost 3000 people. America invaded Afghanistan, a Muslim country ran by Islamic fundamentalists in retaliation. It also invaded the secular Muslim state of Iraq. All this has been after years of Islamic rants about the “Great Satan” that is America.
The two countries we attacked are racked with religious wars. In Afghanistan various Islamic factions still loyal to the Taliban are brutally murdering those who are trying to create a secular nation. Iraq is little more than a civil war between various Islamic factions. The American attack upon the Muslim countries is being seen by many Muslims as a recreation of the Crusades.
Our esteemed leader, however, is completely convinced that is not a religious war. In a reception at the White House he stated that it’s not a religious war because those we are fighting are “godless“.
The presidentÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s remarks focused on the war on terrorism and referred to what he said was the battle against moral relativism on campus, participants said.
“He spoke of the growth of a moral relativism in the world,” said President Joel. “He reiterated that the battle we’re involved in is not religious, because terrorists can’t be God-believing people.”
If you’ll recall, this is the same man that stated God wanted him to be president and that God also told him to attack Afghanistan and Iraq. Now he’s calling them ‘godless’? What more does this man have to do for this to be labeled a religious war? Bomb the Ka’bah under the pretext that the Muslims were hiding weapons in it?
Fuck. The fact that he is using religious terms to describe the people in Afghanistan and Iraq should be enough. Secular governments lead by secular people for secular purposes generally do not use the term “godless” to describe anyone that opposes it, them and their goals. “Religious wingnut out to destroy the world”? Yep, but not “godless”.
Godless is a religious word, used by religious people to explain practically everything. In fact, I think it’s safe to call it the explain all answer of religiosity. Death? Godlessness. Disease? Godlessness. War? Godlessness? Boy bands? Godlessness.
Bah! This isn’t a religious war? It’s so damned religious it’s almost unbelievable. Seriously, if we’re fighting the “Godless” – what does that make us? The righteous warriors of God, of course. How much more religious can you get than that?
