On the GDP and economic text books

As we look deeply into our hearts, we must remorsefully ask our dear Prime Minister to forgive the vast majority of us Canadians for being so belligerent about his unwavering effort to save the world from ecological destruction. He realizes in his wisdom that the only hope mankind can have in saving ourselves from the grips of industrialization and the ensuing and inevitable global warming is to put our faith in the God who revealed himself to the Israelis many generations ago. What else can he do? We must have jobs and grow our GDP otherwise all our economic text books will have to be rewritten, and yet we are going to incinerate ourselves. Our only hope is the promised Messiah of the chosen yet fallen tribes of a beleaguered land on whom our present western world ecclesiastical schisms are based.

As the legends have it, God said to Moses, “Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God”. The word “if” looms large here. Moses exhorted the nation with choice. The covenant God made with Israel contained three major features: The law, the sacrifice, and the choice. The idea behind the choice is that God was determined to reveal Himself to the world through Israel. He would do this either by making them so blessed that the world would know only God could have blessed them so; or by making them so cursed that only God could have cursed them and cause them to still survive. The choice was up to Israel.

Well, they sort of screwed up. So God fulfilled his promise: “The LORD will cause you to be defeated before your enemies. You shall go out one way against them and flee seven ways before them. And you shall be a horror to all the kingdoms of the earth”. He didn't frig around much either. He dispersed them well into the various kingdoms around the region where they were treated ofttimes with horror. But what bad thing did they do? Well, it seems, according to western world ecclesiasts, that they nailed a perceived terrorist on a cross and are just to stubborn to admit they goofed. But there is hope as God foretold to good old Zechariah, “And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him as one that is in bitterness for his first-born. In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of IIadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon”. That day just hasn't breezed in yet.

Herald forth Zionism, that long awaited preamble for the western world's parousiamania. A movement which started in the 19th century and quickly became the hope of many evangelic westerners. In his sincerely humble approach, our dear Prime Minister has gone out of his way to give our country's unwavering support based on faith and faith alone. The proliferation of a modern Israel, filled with Israelis, readying it for the return of humanity's Messiah and a way out of our environmental responsibilities, is the only reasonable answer to our dilemma. And if that fails, at least we have our foot in the Middle East's doorway to syphon off a bit more of that black gold.

On second thought, I must remorsefully ask our dear Prime Minister if I may take my chances with Elizabeth May instead. I find it rather discomforting to be constantly wearing my cup.
