    Surprise this wasn't posted...

    Hot Biblical Link Action


    So nobody thought that mixing military briefings and scripture would be a bad idea?


    This is unbelievable, but not really unexpected.

    I'm surprised this hasn't been posted as well. Should we still be surprised that bible quotes and war are such intertwined bedfellows?

    I'm more offended by the horrible design. :)

    No- seriously, this is beyond scary. :eek:

    I am completely speechless, although I guess I shouldn't be too shocked knowing the Bush administration...

    What a disgusting perversion of both politics and religion.

    "you're right hand will hold me fast lord"

    Someone REALLY likes god if you assume hold means grip and fast means rigorous :p

    Just a little atheist humour

    The U.S. government didn't want to find Osama, even if they did. ;)

    agreed. I hardly think this is what the authors of the bible intended for their scriptures.

    Haha, that was my initial reaction too (probably because the issue itself wasn't surprising). We need to prosecute the guy responsible for the design along with the rest of the crooks in the Bush administration.
