But you’ve got to kill the terrorists before the killing stops. And I’m for the president to chase them all over the world. If it takes 10 years, blow them away in the name of the Lord.

In your re-election, God has graciously granted America–though she doesn’t deserve it–a reprieve from the agenda of paganism. . . . Put your agenda on the front burner and let it boil. You owe the liberals nothing. They despise you because they despise your Christ. Honor the Lord, and He will honor you.

Letter to Bush, Nov. 3, 2004

He [Pres. Bush] was just sitting there, like, I’m on top of the world, and I warned him about this war. . . . and I was trying to say, ‘Mr. President, you better prepare the American people for casualties.’ He said, ‘Oh, no, we’re not going to have any casualties.’ Well, I said, it’s the way it’s going to be. . . . The Lord told me it was going to be A, a disaster and B, messy.

God intended His believers–especially Christian leaders–to be spiritual warriors, to be pit bulls who smash demonic strongholds, stand for truth and bring life, light and healing to this great planet. As I see it, a Christian without a Pit Bull Attitude is a Poodle Christian.

There is also the disturbing tendency to insert theocratic principles into the vision of America’s role in the world. There is evil in the world. Nowhere in our Constitution or founding documents is there support for the proposition that the United States was given a special dispensation to eliminate it.

I even take the position that sexual orgies eliminate social tensions and ought to be encouraged.

It’s a demonic spirit day. God should get the glory on Sunday and Saturday as well. Halloween should be canceled altogether.
