According to the national news, our Congressional House of Representatives passed an Afghanistan/Iraq war-spending bill. That bill requires that the troops receive proper training, proper equipment and proper resting periods. Bush is permitted to waive those provisions.
Bush said those restrictive conditions are unacceptable. Now, who really supports the troops?
I'm writing in memory of our Christian peace marches before the terrible "Shock and Awe" bombings against Iraq. Oh, how I wished to be among these 2007 faithful peacemakers, while Father God is casting his righteous eye upon America.
To better recognize the reality of the bloodbath of war, thousands of Christians -- yes, Christians -- are gathered for a weekend in Washington, D.C. near the people's White House, to protect this deadly battle. Their outcries claim: This war is an offense to God.
Mr. Bush, my Christian brothers don't need a surge in troops. We need a surge in the nonviolent army of the Lord.
To make an even bolder statement, for the cost of $100, a Christian protester can actually be arrested for lingering on the sidewalk of our nation's capital.
