The dictates of the Pope cause millions of unwanted babies to be born - - - born to die of starvation and disease in infancy or childhood.  The dictates of the Pope cause millions of people to be unnecessarily infected with HIV.

The dictates of benign-looking Christians like Ronald Reagan, the Vietnam-War-Era presidents, George W. Bush, cause millions of civilians to be slaughtered, maimed, made homeless and ruined by the U.S. war machine and support of despots.

Possibly a billion Christians support the dictates of their benign-looking leaders - the popes and presidents and countless priests and pastors, believing them to be guided by their God.

The lifestyle and ravenous consumerism of a billion Christians wrecks the climate of the planet, causing death and misery to billions of Third-World non-Christians.  These same Christians love to bask in their own image of themselves as Goodness & Mercy personified - the moral backbone of the world.  “Our church is sending relief packages to the flood victims in Bangladesh.  As the Sahara and other deserts expand, our productive Christian farmers are sending a million tons of grain to the famine victims in those places.”

Question:  Why doesn’t the Christian God, in His power and glory, tell His worshipers what their giant houses crammed with junk, what their gas-guzzling SUV’s are doing to the planet?  Why is this message left up to atheist scientists to bring down from the mountain?  Why do the good Christians continue to dance around their Golden Calf, singing praises to Mammon, as their favorite preacher, Joel Osteen cries out to them, “GOD WANTS YOU TO BE RICH!”?

footnotes:

John McCain said that Joel Osteen was his favorite minister.

The atheist scientists may also be wrecking the planet with their lifestyle, but at least they know they are doing it and know they are worshiping Mammon.  They know the consequences of their gluttony. l

Because God is really Satan, and the test is rejection not acceptance, they all fail….....

Right.  The best way to tell if you are worshiping Satan is if he asks you to cash in your brains and replace them with gobbledygook . . . and you do it.
