For over two years now the U.S. mass media and the national government have insistently and incessantly directed our attention to the declared "war on terrorism" with primary attention to the Middle East and the Muslim World. The emergence of "the American Century" and the consolidation of its proponents at the heart of the Bush Administration, however, alert all to the threat of U.S. global military and economic hegemony. Some of the congregations were confronted dramatically with the arrival of refugees, especially from Guatemala and El Salvador, who were seeking sanctuary in the churches because the U.S. government would not grant them political asylum and could not recognize its complicity in the massacres, torture, and other atrocities that uprooted and displaced hundreds of thousands of innocent people, particularly poor Mayan peasants for most of whom the Cold War was unknown and irrelevant.
