A friend of a friend, Michael Westmoreland, said something today that slowed me down and made my heart beat a little faster. He said, "64 years ago today, the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the civilian city of Nagasaki, Japan. Ironically, while both the pilot and bombardier were Catholics, ground zero was the steeple of the largest Catholic Church and monastic community in Asia. May we use the day for redicating ourselves to a world without weapons of mass destruction and without the insanity of war."
Which reminds me of a song by my curly-haired-pontificating-harmonica-playing-best-friend named Bob Dylan titled “Masters of War.” Which then leads me to another song of his; the chilling re-thought of rhetoric entitled “With God on Our Side.”
And staying within the realms of this post but going along with the theme of homosexuality that’s been swirling around here my friend Alex once suggested that just maybe it’s better to be a Christian homosexual than a Christian soldier. A scandalous thought to some, I’m sure. Your thoughts please.
