Spreading Democracy - a History
Spreading Like a Virus
Through the Government's distortion, spreading the gospel, equates to spreading democracy, and then equates to spreading capitalism. So Christianity = Democracy = Capitalism = Freedom = God = Country = Patriotism. This is the policy and equation for misuse of republican democracy and leads to tyranny. Spreading the Gospel = Spreading Democracy = Spreading Capitalism = Christian Interests = American Interests = Regime Change = War = Suffering. All of this is a carefully, calculated maneuver to use Christian doctrine, to subvert moral teachings, and justify in the name of Christianity the US government's true intentions. The U.S. makes a 180 degree twist of a religion's teachings and makes the opposite true in the minds of the Christian Cults. Thusly, Forgive thy brother 7 x 70, a Christian teaching becomes Kill thy brother because they will not accept democracy = capitalism = Christianity.
Through the use of U.S. propaganda and psychological twisting Christianity = Capitalism. Of all the economic theories, capitalism is one that least reflects Christian doctrine. The U.S. government uses the ideology of Christian doctrine to persuade the American Christian Cults of its 'Christian' intentions, even though the methods employed, its intents, and its goals are exactly opposite Christian Doctrines.
