President Obama Hires Blackwater Again: Mary, Help of Christians, Pray for Us



So Mr. Obama has once again hired the firm of murderous thugs, Blackwater, headed by ultra-right ├╝ber-Catholic Erik Prince.

Reading this article on the heels of the recent revelation that the president carries a picture of Mary, Help of Christians in his wallet makes me wonder about Mr. Obama's Catholic connections.  I hope he's carrying that holy card as a reminder that someone needs to remember and pray for the poor people, Christian or not, murdered by thugs hired by the American government.  Thugs who are, in some cases, Catholics.

I am growing very tired of discovering that my tax dollars are being used to fund these folks.

And then there's thisAnd this.  And Jeff Sharlet's valuable report on how the U.S. military is being transformed into a branch of American fundamentalist Christianity.  Complete with rifles.
