Georgie Ann Geyer: A Spreading Terror - via Dallas Morning News.

The White House sees terrorists as born, not created by history, bearing the mark of Cain, not the mark of circumstance. There is a scarlet "T" written on their foreheads at birth and the only answer is to destroy them. This kind of thinking, of course, relieves the thinker of any responsibility for the presence of the insurgent-terrorist-whatever in our innocent midst.

What's more, there is not much real give in the administration's policies. True, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and other American diplomats met Memorial Day weekend with the Iranians in Baghdad (a good first move but limited, since the Iranians have most of the power because of our incredible stupidity in Iraq). But by all reports, President Bush is more convinced than ever of his righteousness.

Friends of his from Texas were shocked recently to find him nearly wild-eyed, thumping himself on the chest three times while he repeated "I am the president!" He also made it clear he was setting Iraq up so his successor could not get out of "our country's destiny."

Bush's wild-eyed I AM THE PRESIDENT spill reminds me of Denzel Washington's profanity-laced tirade at the end of his Oscar-winning performance for Training Day.
I am the man up in this beast. Who do you think you're messing with? I'm the police! I run {stuff} here. You just live here...King Kong ain't got {nothing} on me!
Pound your chest a time or two, Mr. President. We know all too well who you are...

Do not mean to change your comment stream, but it looks like you are losing your pastor.

Thanks for stopping by. About 4 posts down I wrote about Pastor Julie leaving. When I lived in Atlanta, I visited FBC Decatur a handful of times. Nice place.

I believe Decatur will now be the biggest CBF or SBC church with a female pastor in the country (since Decatur's members give about 20% to of their missions money to SBC).

I missed that. Sorry.

With her being called as Pastor and the church giving 20% of their budget to CP, maybe Ben will nominate her for 1VP.
