Excommunication of George Walker Bush



It is clearly known unto us that GEORGE WALKER BUSH, sometime baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, and so reputed and accounted for Christians, has fearfully fallen from the society of Christ's body, and in the conduct of the Office of President of the United States, in violation of his constitutional oath faithfully to execute the Office of President of the United States and to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States, and in violation of his constitutional duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed, has committed the following wicked offences, which by the Law of God deserves eternal damnation:

I. - GEORGE WALKER BUSH has attempted to impose a police state and a military dictatorship upon the people and Republic of the United States of America by means of "a long Train of Abuses and Usurpations" against the Constitution since September 11, 2001. This subversive conduct includes but is not limited to: - trying to suspend the constitutional Writ of Habeas Corpus; - promulgating the totalitarian U.S.A. Patriot Act through Congress;
- organizing the mass round-up and incarceration of foreigners; - depriving at least two United States citizens of their constitutional rights by means of military incarceration; - interfering with the constitutional right of defendants in criminal cases to lawyers; - violating and subverting the Posse Comitatus Act; - ordering unlawful and unreasonable searches and seizures; - violating the First Amendments rights of the free exercise of religion, freedom of speech, peaceable assembly, and to petition the government for redress of grievances; - nominating to the federal judiciary hand-picked judges belonging to the totalitarian Federalist Society and undermining the judicial independence of the Constitution's Article III federal court system; - violating the Third and Fourth Geneva Conventions and the U.S. War Crimes Act; violating the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination; - reinstituting the infamous "Cointelpro" Program; - violating the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, the Convention against Torture, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; - instituting the totalitarian Total Information Awareness Program; and
- establishing a totalitarian Northern Military Command for the United States of America itself.

II. - GEORGE WALKER BUSH has violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution. U.S. soldiers in the Middle East are overwhelmingly poor White, Black, and Latino and their military service is based on the coercion of a system that has denied viable economic opportunities to these classes of citizens. Under the Constitution, all classes of citizens are guaranteed equal protection of the laws, and calling on the poor and minorities to fight a war for oil to preserve the lifestyles of the wealthy power elite of this country is a denial of the rights of these soldiers.

III. - GEORGE WALKER BUSH has violated the U.S. Constitution, federal law, and the United Nations Charter by bribing, intimidating and threatening others, including the members of the United Nations Security Council, to support belligerent acts against Iraq.

IV. - GEORGE WALKER BUSH has prepared, planned, and conspired to engage in a massive war and catastrophic aggression against Iraq by employing methods of mass destruction that will result in the killing of hundreds of thousands of civilians, many of whom will be children. This planning includes the threatened use of nuclear weapons, and the use of such indiscriminate weapons and massive killings by aerial bombardment, or otherwise, of civilians, violates the Hague Regulations on land warfare, the rules of customary international law set forth in the Hague Rules of Air Warfare, the Four Geneva Conventions of 1949 and Protocol I thereto, the Nuremberg Charter, Judgment, and Principles, the Genocide Convention, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and U.S. Army Field Manual 27-10 (1956).

V. - GEORGE WALKER BUSH has failed to seek a Declaration of War and committed the United States to acts of war without congressional consent and contrary to the United Nations Charter and international law. From September, 2001 through January, 2003, George Walker Bush has embarked on a course of action that has systematically eliminated every option for peaceful resolution. Further, George Walker Bush has not received a Declaration of War by Congress, and in contravention of the written word, the spirit, and the intent of the U.S. Constitution, has declared that he will go to war regardless of the views of the American people. Further, George Walker Bush has planned, prepared, and conspired to commit crimes against Peace by leading the United States into aggressive war against Iraq in violation of Article 2(4) of the United Nations Charter, the Nuremberg Charter, Judgment, and Principles, the Kellogg-Brand Pact, U.S. Army Field Manual 27-10 (1956), numerous other international treaties and agreements, and the Constitution of the United States.

In all of this GEORGE WALKER BUSH has acted in a manner contrary to his trust as President and subversive of constitutional government, to the great prejudice of the cause of law and justice and to the manifest injury of the people of the United States.

We having place in the ministry, with grief and dolor of our hearts, are compelled to draw the sword granted by God to his church: that is, to excommunicate from the society of Jesus Christ, from his body the church, from participation of sacraments, and prayers with the same, GEORGE WALKER BUSH; and therefore, in the name and authority of the eternal God, and of his Son Jesus Christ, we pronounce GEORGE WALKER BUSH to be excommunicate; and charge all that favor the Lord Jesus to repudiate him until such time as that either the Lord Himself has punished the offender as His law commands, or that the offender is reconciled to the church again by public repentance. And in the meantime, we earnestly desire all the faithful to call upon God to move His heart so to punish such wicked crimes; but also to touch the heart of the offender, that he may deeply consider how fearful it is to fall into the hands of the Eternal God, and that by unfeigned repentance he may apprehend mercy in Jesus Christ, and so avoid eternal damnation.
