Can you name the christian based on these quotes?

    "With out a google search, how many of you can identify the christian leader responsible for the following list of quotes?

    Please explain how the ideals contained in these quotes, don't apply to the tea party and modern day christianity.

    Warning...I finished my 3rd brandy before I finished this post.

    I would say my bad but I kind of think this is some of my good."

    Exhibit A:

    How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think.

    The victor will never be asked if he told the truth.

    The great masses of the people will more easily fall victims to a big lie than to a small one.

    All propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.

    Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.

    As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice.

    Any alliance whose purpose is not the intention to wage war is senseless and useless.

    I believe today that my conduct is in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator.

    "Every true christian feels this way. Problem is every version of christian feels that they are a true christian, Ya'll need a better labeling system."


    It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.

    Humanitarianism is the expression of stupidity and cowardice.

    I do not see why man should not be just as cruel as nature.

    I go the way that Providence dictates with the assurance of a sleepwalker.

    "semi related question...is this the same providence they refer to when trying to convince the uneducated masses that America was founded as a Christian nation?

    If so, it's kind of hard to convince a thinking person that histories most efficent mass murderer was argueably, nothing more than the most inhuman christian,  batshit crazy, leader the world has had to kill so far?

    Back to the quotes that are starting to show a consistant theme. That would be that a huge portion of this leader's documented statements are christian in basis and verbatim in a lot of cases, IMHO. This warrior for the christian god, with the same source of justification that the tea party uses to condemn the homosexual community, ie, god and his words found in the bible, amen. Of course you could always use the worn out excuse that this self proclaimed christian wasn't as true christian."

    It is not truth that matters, but victory. "As an atheist, I have to say, amen. For those about to say that I am being sarcastic with this statement I offer this...I am not being sarcastic, I am being disrespectful. Do you need a dictionary?"

    Universal education is the most corroding and disintegrating poison that liberalism has ever invented for its own destruction.

    "Spoken as a true christian conservative, Another sarcastic amen is warranted here. A   M   E   N   !"

    All great movements are popular movements. They are the volcanic eruptions of human passions and emotions, stirred into activity by the ruthless Goddess of Distress or by the torch of the spoken word cast into the midst of the people. Can you say tea party?

    As a Christian I have no duty to allow myself to be cheated, but I have the duty to be a fighter for truth and justice. "eVERY CHRISTIAN KNOWS IN THEIR HEART, OR AT LEAST PRETENDS TO BE CONVINCED THAT, THEY AND THEIR FELLOW BELIEVERS ARE IN FACT, THE ONLY CAPABLE JUDGES OF WHAT TRUTH AND JUSTICE IS. That their decision making processes don't make sense is of little concern here. For example, most true christians dont believe that mormanism is a true christian faith however, Most true christians believe every word Glenn Beck utters simply because, he claims to be a christian. I am beginning to understand why NASCAR started in the bible belt. These people have existed on circular logic for so long, it makes sense that they would reward the one that can go in circles the fastest." 

    By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a people see even heaven as hell or an extremely wretched life as paradise. (Kind of like how they convinced free heath care and quality education are two things that will destroy this country and the sheep who live here)

    Demoralize the enemy from within by surprise, terror, sabotage, assassination. This is the war of the future.

    The art of leadership... consists in consolidating the attention of the people against a single adversary and taking care that nothing will split up that attention. (Can you say 9/11?)

    Who says I am not under the special protection of God? "I was under the impression all true christians are under that special protection."

    Ok I'll stop before this becomes repetitive in nature, hehe.

    Give up, Can't figure out the christian? It's brother hitler. You know the guy George Bush's grand-daddy's bank supported. War profiteering is an old family tradition for the Bush's

    Cheney didn't do to bad either what with the 20+billion in cost plus contracts he got for his bosses at Halliburton. No problem spending money and piling on the national debt when it's good ole repubs reaping the rewards now is there?

    Does anyone else think it's strange that a large number of terrorists, in a variety of countries, we are fighting today are in fact, the very people George senior and company put in power and supported. Talk about creating the enemy that has allowed them to shove this facist government down the non-functioning brain stems of America's finest?

    In Closing please ponder this example of todays intelligence levels,

    The professor asked an ASU freshman, if she knew what Roe v. Wade was about.

    She pondered the question, then finally said, "That was the decision George Washington had to make before he crossed the Delaware."

    This would make sense to, and would be spread by, approx. 39% of fox viewers if Bill O'lielly staed it on the air. You knoe Rush Bumball would run with it. It sounds as good as an onion news flash doesn't it?

      Awww well that wasn't a cool game.

      You answered the question yourself! So Hitler was a Christian? Yet he wanted to eliminate the Jews? Weren't they Christian?

        I don't have that information and I suggest you ask a jew for jesus. You probably won't get an answer based in reality but I think it would be fun to debate one of them.

    Jews are not Christians - they do not believe that Christ was born.

      Is that all Jews?

      There are many  people who identify as Jewish Christians-just saying smile

        Only a relatively small sect of Jews believe in Christ - Messianic Jews.

        Judeo-Christian beliefs share the Old Testament of the Bible. That might be what's confusing you.

            Hey EK ! Howdy there Stump! Stump man...your being tough dude. The very argument against public education is the answer to the question regarding Roe vs. Wade. That child was educated by America's most technologically advanced system yet! All of my kids have been educated within the public system until the last one. The first 3 are awesome and bright, including the 2nd born who has Down Syndrome. He has an iq of about 55. Not exactly an intellectual, but man is he clever!
            My last child turned 15 this week. He was publicly educated until middle school. Then three years at a private Christian academy. This year he began a home schooling program. You would never believe he wasn't in his 30's or 40's if you ever sat down and had a serious discussion with him. Economics,(read Adam Smith's Wealth of the Nations @ 12) Science( has read so many bio's it's nuts, builds his own gun powder, traps and tans his own fur, and is spearheading a steam/kinetic air generator project here at home) History(can name individual unit commanders throughout the American Civil War, describe in chilling clarity Bonaparte's  many campaigns, understands the Empires more thoroughly than I ever will, and answered your question before the third quote.)
            He in fact asked my wife as we discussed your post this evening who qualified as a better leader. A man who was known to smoke and drink and have many mistresses, A man who was known to smoke drink and cheat on his wife, or a man who did not drink did not smoke and had only one woman in his life whom he married? She of course chose the latter.(Hitler) and the lad informed her that she eliminated Churchill and Roosevelt with her choice.
            But Stump my friend... I am so far from perfect, I need to be forgiven...so I'm still a Christian...trying desperately to avoid embarrassing my Lord! hehehe...
            Oh yeah... Ekiwi...one of Christianity's reasons for being hated by so many other mono-theists is because we claim one God, yet have 3 persons...very hard for  either a Jew or Muslim to take... and almost impossible to describe effectively to anyone let alone someone in an antagonistic state of being!
            Very excited to spend a minute or 2 with ya'all...
