Operation Prayer Offensive: with Thanks to Pat Robertson
Dear Fellow American,

Would you join with me and millions of other patriots in beseeching our Lord to remove George W. Bush from the office of the Presidency? If we pray with resolve and solemnly seek God’s grace, then He will hear our prayer and give us relief.

Dwight Eisenhower once said, “In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex.”

How wise Eisenhower was. Yet even he could not have foreseen how our great nation would be sodomized — both economically and spiritually — by George W. Bush and his War Council. I am speaking of Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Raytheon, Haliburton, Bechtel and their legions.

With George Bush as their front man, these corporations have stolen from our treasury to finance their military crusades.

They have lied to the American people to justify unprovoked attacks on whoever stands in the way of their profits.

They have so armed the world that our soldiers go into battle to face weapons made in America.

With George Bush as their front man, they have terminated peace treaties.

They continue to pour billions of dollars into a ridiculously flawed Star Wars military system.

And they are insatiable in their lust. Since 2001, the CEOs of this country’s major military contractors have increased their own compensation by 79%. I ask you, my fellow Americans, what has happened to our once great land?

Our heavenly Father never intended anything like this to take place. Yet we seem to be helpless to do anything about it. Why? Because we are under the tyranny of nonelected oligarchy. The Cheneys, Rumsfelds, Wolfowitzs, Boltons, and Rices are unrepentant accomplices in a perverse military industrial coup. They have violated the very principles of “we the people.” These depraved individuals wrap themselves in Old Glory and proclaim, “If you’re not with us, you’re against us.”

But a higher tribunal exists — the CEO of all the earth. Now is the time to kneel before Him and cry out for redress of our grievances. He loves this country as much as we do, and He does not want to see it trashed.

No culture has ever endured under a military rule. No society that venerates warfare has ever been spared the wrath of God. That’s why I’m asking you to join with me and seek the Lord’s intervention.

Let God’s will be done and we will have a President who no longer espouses the doctrine of the Carlyle Group, but one who seeks the well-being of all.

Let God’s will be done and we will have a President who no longer represents the most dangerous threat to the world’s security.

Let God’s will be done and we will have a President who no longer mispronounces the word “nuclear.”

In the Lord’s name, let the Holy boot swiftly kick the ass of those who would worship the raw ideology of technological progress with their weapons and their words.

In the name of the Father, let these acts of military perversion cease. Our country deserves better. As Americans, as patriots, as lovers of liberty and equality I invite you to bow your heads in prayer. Please join us in Operation Prayer Offensive.

God bless you and keep you.
