So, when I read this story about how Lt. General Jerry Boykin ran an operation in North Korea that relied on Christian missionaries as spies, there was a part of me that thought "Damn it, aren't all the Christians in NK heading for a firing squad now?" And also, "Isn't this liable to make them paranoid about any NGO trying on some good works where starving and poor North Koreans are concerned?" I am also reminded that North Korea was sore as hell for reasons while the US was under the Bush Administration. And I am also reminded that these days, Boykin is a full-on radioactive Christianist whackadoodle. I'm reminded of the entire unhelpful extent that the military got played into performing a holy war under George Bush the Lesser.
And I never want another theocratic or theocrat-friendly politician in the White House ever again. Because that kind of logic is...not logic. It's signifying and in error. It doesn't work.
