President Hugo Chavez has ordered a review of Venezuela's ties with the Vatican amid tensions between his government and the country's bishops.
An accord with the Vatican gave privileges to the Catholic Church not enjoyed by other churches, he said.
The Venezuelan Episcopal Conference warned this week about growing political polarisation ahead of key legislative elections in September.
Mr Chavez has described local Catholic leaders as "troglodytes".
CHAVEZ IS AN EVIL SOCIALIST; THEREFORE IT IS ONLY NATURAL THAT HE SHOULD DISTANCE HIMSELF FROM THE WEST AND JUDEO-CHRISTIAN CIVILIZATION.
AS A LEFTIST, CHAVEZ KNOWS IF HE HAS ANY HOPE OF MAKING HIS SOCIALIST STATE OMNIPOTENT HE MUST DESTROY ALL THE OTHER INSTITUTIONS WHICH HAVE A COMPETING HOLD MON THE PEOPLE.
THE CHURCH IS ONE SUCH INSTITUTION.
... where would we be without Judeo-Christian believers? Where would Western civilization be, What would our nation be?MORE ON THE IMPORTANCE OF JUDEO-CHRISTIAN RELIGION TO OUR FOUNDING HERE.
There would be no Declaration Of Independence without believers. We are endowed by our CREATOR with inalienable rights; (these rights are not the gift of aristocrats or the government or politicians!).
YES: Natural Law is the foundation of our founding - as the Judeo-Christian God is the very foundation of Western Civilization.
What would our civilization - our CULTURE - look like and sound like without God?No Sistine Chapel.
No Beethoven's Ninth.
No Agnus Dei.
No Western Civilization.
YEAH YEAH YEAH: the knee-jerk left-wing postmodernists always retaliate to this by harking back to Europe's religious wars - as if they were the worst wars in history.
THEY WEREN'T. NOT BY A LONG-SHOT.
Socialism killed more in the last century - the 20th C - than Judeo-Christianity killed over religion in the previous 20 COMBINED! Western religion killed a few million in the religious wars. Socialism 150 million.
And Islam killed more than socialism - (granted, they had 14 centuries and killed about 270 million for their ideology, their martial creed; that's more than all the West's wars combined; YES: Islam is the world's most deadly ideology).
So when you hear the militant atheists and postmodernists rant and rave about the ills of Judeo-Christianity... tell them to shut up and consider what life would be without Judeo-Christian Civilization.
And remind them that without a belief in God, our future might easily become as devoid of higher value as our pre-Judeo-Christian past. That was a world without personal liberty and without democracy; it was a world instead filled with pagan despotism, human sacrifice, and utter debauchery.
MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED INTO BELIEVING THAT RELIGION IS BAD AND ATHEISM GOOD.
JOHN LENNON'S "IMAGINE: EXTOLS THIS BELIEF AND HAS LONG BEEN THE ANTHEM FOR THE ATHEISTIC LEFT.
HERE IS MY ANTIDOTE:
HERE'S A NEW AND IMPROVED VERSION:
Imagine there's no leftismWE WILL MAKE ISLAMISM AND POVERTY HISTORY AFTER WE MAKE LEFTISM HISTORY.
It's easy if you try
No commies among us
Only truth and no BIG LIE
Imagine there's no Islam
It isn't hard to do
No hate for jihadis to kill or die for
And no terror too
Imagine no taxes
I wonder if you can
No need for government programs
And no 5 year plan.
You may say I'm a teabagger
Or a zionist racist corprate neocon bitch
I hope someday you'll grow up
And the world will be free and rich.
WE CAN OUT A NAIL IN THE COFFIN OF LEFTISM THIS NOVEMBER: VOTE GOP!
