A Call to Resist the Perversion of Christianity
The 'Christian Nation' Bombs Again
A baby boy TERORIST INSURGENT lying in a Fallujah hospital after a U.S. airstrike in Fallujah, Iraq (news - web sites) Saturday, Nov. 6, 2004, which killed his father, according to hospital officials. U.S. jets pounded Fallujah early Saturday in the heaviest airstrikes in six months, includingfive 500-pound bombs dropped on insurgent targets.
The military machine is ravaging Fallujah in yet another "final clamp down" in neighborhoods not unlike our own. I worry about the people there who are like my mother, bedridden and on oxygen – she could never simply "leave the city," as Allawi and his U.S. masters callously commanded women and children to do if they wanted to survive. I worry about the poor kids whose parents have no money and no car. I worry about the scared boys and girls in uniform who won't be breathing next weekend, all so that Bush can "win" by showing that he can control Fallujah. It hurts to know what's happening to human beings a world away, yet be unable to stop what Christians once consider the worst kind of sin:
