No Time For Congressman John Hall's ISA Bill, But Christmas and Christ Got It Made

We have some very serious issues in this country, and in our own district here in New York, with Indian Point and Illegal Aliens at the top of the list, followed closely by the War in Iraq. Congressman John Hall's bill calling for and ISA (Independent Safety Assessment) of Indian Point languishes in obscurity in some long forgotten subcommittee, but in their race to appease the radical right wing voters of America, Congress is falling over backwards to eliminate separation of Church and State with H. Res. 847!

Seems that our dearly loved DO NOTHING CONGRESS is all in a tizzy to push through this Christians of Good Faith Christmas Resolution for the born again, Bible Thumping, God Fearing folk of the world, and to reiterate that America would not be America if not for God, Jesus and the Holy Smoke. Lawrence G. McDade probably wet himself with holy water upon hearing about this bill, good Christian Pro Nuclear Judge that he is. No mention of the Jews, Muslims or agnostics and not even Santa Claus has earned a howdoyoudo in this CHRISTIAN' ONLY love fest of a resolution.

So, no Democratic push to DEFUND THE WAR, no bill to Impeach Bush and Cheney, and all of us host communities with aging, dangerous cancer causing reactors are shit out of luck, but trust me, the Christians will get their JESUS RESOLUTION before Congress heads home on Christmas Break. We here at GNB thought we would add a few missing words to the resolution.


Recognizing the importance of Christmas Sales and the Christian faith that will protect children from lead contaminated Chinese Import Toys.


Recognizing the importance of Christmas Sales and the Christian faith that will protect children from lead contaminated Chinese Import Toys.

Whereas Christmas, a holiday of great financial significance to Americans and their greedy corporations, and many other cultures and nationalities, is celebrated annually by Christians and those who just like the concept of Santa Claus and getting gifts throughout the United States and the world;

Whereas there are approximately 225,000,000 supposed Christians in the United States, making Christianity the religion of over three-fourths of the American population;

Whereas there are approximately 2,000,000,000 supposed Christians throughout the world, making Christianity the largest self serving religion in the world and the religion of about one-third of the world population;

Whereas Christians identify themselves as those who believe in the salvation from sin offered to them through the sacrifice of their savior, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and who, out of gratitude for the gift of salvation, commit themselves to living their lives in accordance with the teachings of the Holy Bible; as long as it is not inconvenient, and requires no personal sacrifice;

Whereas Christians and Christianity have contributed greatly to the development of western civilization; and the molesting of tens of thousands of Children in the name of Christ...(see Catholic Priests in footnote);

Whereas the United States, being founded as a constitutional republic in the traditions of western civilization, finds much in its history that points observers back to its roots in Christianity;

Whereas on December 25 of each calendar year, American Christians observe Christmas, the holiday celebrating the birth of their savior, Jesus Christ; even Mitt Romney;

Whereas for Christians, Christmas is celebrated as a recognition of God's redemption, mercy, and Grace; and the gifts and feasting are just extra added attractions;

Whereas many Christians and non-Christians throughout the United States and the rest of the world, celebrate Christmas as a time to serve others, such as their corporate masters that make them work on Christmas Eve: Now, therefore be it

    Resolved, That the House of Representatives--Having Nothing Better To Do

      (1) recognizes the Christian faith as one of the great religions of the world; right behind Nascar, and Sunday Football
      (2) expresses continued support for Christians in the United States and worldwide; as long as it does not interfere with Corporate Profits, or Homeland Security

      (3) acknowledges the international religious and historical importance of Christmas Sales and the Christian faith

      (4) acknowledges and supports the role played by Christians and Christianity in driving holiday sales, and the founding of the United States and in the formation of the western civilization

      (5) rejects bigotry and persecution directed against Christians, both in the United States and worldwide, but its OK to think of homosexuality as a abomination against God; and

      (6) expresses its deepest respect to American Christians and Christians throughout the world.
