Hmm... well, if you take "God" and suplement it with "whatever higher force might be at work" and "Christian" with "well meaning people that
aspire to goodness", then get rid of the retoric, you've got a perty good statment.
Yes, I'm an agnostic in case you can't tell.
While I don't believe that Christians should rule the world (They are too corrupt already!), the story
of Babylon is a good pariable for
warning against the dangers that seem to have overtaken modern America. It's a story I've been interested in for some time... BTW, did you know that
it predates the bible by about a thousand years? It's actually directly taken from Babylonian beliefs. Go fig, eh?
It's worth exploring some;
If you were to talk about "the faithless" in a different way than simply "not Christian" (ie, faithless means people who believe in nothing)
you'd be way ahead in your argument. America has become a place where believing in something makes you dangerous, be it God, Alah, or Consperisy
The faithless are easier to control because you can give them the sham of something to beleive in... ie, your Golden Calf or "The American Dream"
(which is based entierly on greed, but that's a whole different rant). The problem right now is that the dream is over. The waking has begun and
people have started looking around and seeing things differently.
They are seeing things SO differently that they all see different things... this could be the key to "when the towers fell, the language of babylon
was sundered and noone could understand each other". It wasn't that the actual language or comunications falls apart, it's that people can nolonger
relate to eachother without the false preacher telling them how to act.
As I say... it's an interesting story with alot to say.
Possibly even prophetic.
I could stand to hear it without all the Christian Retoric, though.
