Yesterday, at the grocery store, I saw a woman in a bright red shirt which read,
“It’s God’s job to judge the terrorists.
It’s OUR job to arrange the meeting.”
I couldn’t believe it.
You know, despite my disgust with all the rantings I see everywhere about our country and its moral demise, and while I do consider myself a pacifist of sorts… I’m appalled and ashamed that people representing our country think it’s their job to take someone’s life away. After all, isn’t that exactly what the terrorists think?
I preferred my delusion that we killed in defense, and that the initial intent of the weapons was to scare and intimidate. How’s that for optimism?
Stopping terrorism is very different than saying, “Let’s go kill the bastards.”
I just don’t get it.
