the church and michael moore

so have you seen it yet? i've heard pretty vehement reactions to it, positive or negative. and i'm definitely going to see it sometime. but i feel like the underlying message is not new: it's just that so many christians forget that a conservative government is as much the potential arm of the devil as a liberal one. nazis were right-winged. commies, left. according to a better man than me: "As a Christian, I am an ardent believer in nonviolent conflict resolution as the only weapon able to break the cycle of violence both in personal and international conflicts. Politics and war will never be the answer. It is not an issue of Republican or Democrat, liberal or conservative. Fahrenheit 9/11 confronts us with other choices: anger, resentment, and bitterness or else the forgiveness, love, and prayer that only God can give. And this love, prayer, and forgiveness must extend--especially--to those young men and women fighting for a cause they do not understand, and to those world leaders who are but puppets in the grand schemes of power and money. Real change will happen only when we embrace these weapons of the Spirit, and when we become much more active in our prayer for a peaceful world." --J. C. Arnold Read the rest of the article here
