Creepy Timing on Senate’s Federal Marriage Amendment?

Dear President Bush,

Did Bill Frist hope by putting the federal marriage amendment on the calendar this week that it would fail on 06-06-06? How symbolic should that happen. Fine, gay hating Christians could say the amendment failed due to “the work of the devil”. What else might the great Satan have on his agenda?

The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing Tuesday on government surveillance of journalists who publish classified information, the result of probes into published reports on secret prisons overseas and the Bush administration's domestic wiretapping program.

Does Satan shine the light on secret prisons and domestic wiretapping or does he conduct those demonly deeds?

What else might be done that day by our elected officials in Congress? How might they spin the following business as Godly work to smite the forces of evil?

A record-size emergency spending bill to continue U.S. military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and provide hurricane relief along the Gulf Coast is being finished. The Senate added new relief for farmers and other aid to the package, swelling its cost to more than $100 billion. Bush is demanding that the price tag stick within his $92.2 billion request, plus $2.3 billion to combat avian flu.

Which side of the war has God and which Satan? Both sides claim to have God’s direct and full support while fighting evil, even the Great Satan. When farmers lose their crops to bad weather and pestilence isn’t that God’s will? Or does the American taxpayer need to subsidize farming operations as they have been smitten by Satan? And who is sending avian flu? Is it the divine’s punishment for humanity or the devil’s trickiness?

How might all this get spun? And who is doing the spinning? Is it God or the devil? I think its just a bunch of humans pulling each others chain when we could be loving each other and working together to make the world a more loving place.
