Iraqi Children Caught in the Fog of War

Iraqi Children Caught in the Fog of War

Block your ears from the cries of mothers and children seeing streets streaming with the blood of their loved ones. Force yourself to ignore the screams of anguish from the elderly who watch their dreams breathe their last breath. Continue to convince yourself that all is well so long as it is happening to those people over there. Better “over there” to “those people” than “over here” to “us,” right?

The Great Commission has devolved into a crusade for secular democracy. Worst of all may be that many have forgetten that these two are not one and the same. But never mind the inherent conflict between this crusade and the reality of Original Sin. Push aside all questions about means and ends. Such serious considerations tends to confuse simple masses and inevitably muddles up what the rulers see as a crystal clear mandate

Plowshares are hammered into swords. Religious leaders bless the lambs of their fold as they trade in their fleece for the coarse hair of of the pack they wish to join. But little Johnny-Q and Sally Sue look so strong, so brave… so American.

Close your eyes, bid them farewell, and praise Caesar for his benevolence. Refuse to second guess, repudiate all reason, and deem repugnant any and all who call for the return of Johnny-Q and Sally Sue, who pray for casting off of military garb, who envision the day when swords are turned into plowshares, and who dare to shed a tear for the lives and dreams lost in the fog of war… especially if it is one of them over there.

  1. I completely agree. Our forgive policy agenda is imperial and anti-christian. I am a fiscal conservitive, but find myself agreeing a lot with progessives because they don’t see, like me, the point of this war from a fiscal or moral point of view. We could have invested the billions of dollars to fight this war in drilling wells and fixing infrastructure for free. Sadam wouldn’t have said no to 800 billion dollars of free public improvements. What we are doing there will be remembered in just the same way any other world empire has been remembered. We are spreading out our imperial storm troopers over the face of the earth, a battalion in every region of the world. I don’t think I can vote for McCain. But I couldn’t vote for Obama, he voted three times against a bill that protected failed abortion infants from exposure. And as a fiscal conservative, I hate hate hate the bailouts and any system which takes money away form families working hard to eat healthfully and gives it to people who don’t even want to improve their lives through good nutrition or exercise so that our children suffer and cannot have a new car or go to college because a bunch of people decided they wouldn’t go to work. I am also an ex CREC guy who is to the One Holy Orthodox Church. I was wondering more about your work integrating VanTill with Catholicism, or not. I don’t exactly know what your position is there. I got to go back to work to pay for all the drug addicts to stay at home!

  2. I am a sympathizer. Love your enemy. Do good to those who persecute you. Drill wells in the desert don’t put a bullet in the face of an innocent child. I am disgusted.
