. . .we said we were killing commies for Christ because in many ways we were. Before that we were killing heathens for Christ and now I suppose we’re killing Jihadists for Christ.
Dark sarcasm summed up the way many of us felt when the “Killing Commies” phrase was popular, though just as politically incorrect as it is now.
In reality, it’s easier to fund and justify war if you don’t mention that you’re killing people. It’s also easier if you leave Christ out of it since He was never really in it in spite of what some people thought.
Around the world, bloggers are blogging for peace today. I didn’t sign up at blog4peace so this is an unauthorized post.
Peace comes from within, I think. That’s where it starts. You have to feel it and know in your heart and soul that war (or killing anyone for any reason) is a violation of universal tenets. War comes from the ego’s fear. Peace comes from the soul’s love.
I really don’t know any other way to say it.
