Buddha Insanity While People Dying
While the USA was busy bombing Afghanistan, president Bush Jr. was simultaneously assuring the American people that we were helping the Afghan people with humanitarian aid (dropping food and supplies from the air). Unfortunately, as soon as the Taliban was removed from power, the Afghan people were abandoned and left at the mercy of tyrants and rapists. The Northern Alliance has a history as bad as the Taliban. There was not enough food. Many are starving and children there suffer from diseases which are easily curable. One out of four children die before reaching age five. Though The White House puts up a front that it cares by trying to appeal to the American people to donate more money, why are the FEDs so intrigued with rebuilding Iraq but not Afghanistan? Why $87,000,000,000 for Iraq, but peanuts for Afghanistan? What's going on here?
It's bad enough that the US government is wasting unbelievable amounts of money on nonsense (like the $600,000 spent to study the sex-habits of squirrels). Now you've got idiots who want to spend $60,000,000 to erect two humongous Buddha statues in Afghanistan (174 and 125 feet tall). Here's the article below. Has the world gone nuts?
Tall order for Afghan Buddhas
By Naomi Koppel
International outcry followed the destruction of the giant Buddhas,
which were chiseled into the cliff more than 1,500 years ago in Bamiyan
Valley on the ancient Silk Road linking Europe and Central Asia.
What is wrong with the world? Has everyone gone nuts? I mean, there's little children dying over in Afghanistan (you know, the country we supposedly liberated from the evil Taliban). How could anyone in their right mind justify spending money on Buddha statues instead of feeding the children? People's priorities are all wrong! The misappropriation and waste of tax-payer money is appalling. I pay taxes. I don't want my money being used for garbage like squirrel studies! Here's a link to The Pork Page, loaded with government waste projects. Also, read Money Down The Drain.
It's pathetic. While one in four children are dying by age five in destitute war-stricken Afghanistan, some morons are wanting to restore their Buddha statues. It's just beyond common sense and sanity. Truly, much of today's world has lost it's mind. It's sickening to realize that we live in a nation like the United States where you can legally murder your child through an abortion, but face imprisonment for killing an American eagle. Save the eagles! Murder the children and sell their body parts! On and on, truly there is a devil.
May I briefly say...I am a born-again Christian, but not religious. I detest religion. I love the Lord Jesus Christ and have built this website (www.Jesus-is-Savior.com) for Him. It goes without saying that the world is fast becoming a large insane asylum. Without Jesus Christ, people can become heartless monsters. The world is a place of wickedness (1st John 5:19). If you have never accepted Jesus Christ as your personal Saviour, I please with you friend to do so now. Simply admit (confess) your sinful condition to Jesus Christ (God Almighty Who came to this earth in the body of a man, the Son of God, God in the flesh). Jesus was born of a virgin. Jesus lived a sinless life. Jesus went to the cross to pay for your sins and mine by shedding His blood to atone for our sins in heaven. Jesus died, was buried, and rose again three days later. He ascended to heaven and applied His blood to the mercy seat in heaven, just as the Old Testament high priest applied the lamb's blood to the mercy seat in the holy of holies. All you have to do to be saved is trust upon Jesus Christ 100% to forgive your sins and save your soul. Ask Jesus to save you and forgive you. Make the decision to rely upon Christ with all your heart to save you. After all, Jesus has the nail-scarred hands and feet, why would you trust another?
