Tupper Saussy: Abiding Religious War #1

Useful Knowledge About the Attack On America

by F. Tupper Saussy

Rulers of Evil was published by Harper Collins just weeks before September 11, 2001.

None of the big papers reviewed it. I'm told this is because I look at history a little too eccentrically.

Well, okay. The standard approach is to regard history as so many persons in control of themselves doing what they think is the right thing.

My approach is to look at history as so many persons under religious oath doing, whether right or wrong, what their superiors are divinely authorized to command them to do.

The different approaches yield different pictures. Many readers believe that mine, call it “the ROE filter,” yields the true one.

The ROE filter screens out emotionalism and bigotry. It grinds no axes. Nor does it judge or condemn. It builds peace, security, and confidence on a foundation of complicated forces understood.

The ROE filter reveals what individuals are authorized to do. If a woman is authorized by a legitimate power in pursuit of justice to conspire or assassinate or steal or deceive, the ROE filter presumes she does her job well. If a man has taken an oath to suspend his own values in order to obey those of a legitimate superior in pursuit of justice, the ROE filter credits him with fidelity.

Writing about September 11, Andrew Sullivan declared in the New York Times “This Is A Religious War.” Bravo, Andrew!

And how’s this for religious war as policy? “NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim Friday, September 14, 2001, as a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance for the Victims of the Terrorist Attacks on September 11, 2001. I ask that the people of the United States and places of worship mark this National Day of Prayer and Remembrance with noontime memorial services, the ringing of bells at that hour, and evening candlelight remembrance vigils.”

The President has repeatedly termed government’s response to 9/11 “a Crusade.”

The ROE filter credits the President with correctly understanding that the term “Crusade” defines religious war undertaken by the Roman Papacy in the 11th, 12th, and 13th centuries to win the Holy Land from the Muslims. Bravo, Mr. President!

Every oathbound official deserves the presumption that he means what he says. The President deserves no less. Therefore, how can I but conclude that the American people are funding a Roman Catholic military venture?

If this strikes you as odd, then perhaps you can make use of the following pages.

They may help you abide the next few years of crusade...
