WW2 or, say, D-Day in particular, is an excellent example of a REAL sacrifice. There's no question that, if the Nazis would have won the war and
conquered Europe, the American way of life would have been destroyed, or definitely VERY gravely in danger in the least -- in enough danger to warrant
decisive American and Allied military action to stop the German war machine. WW2, including the defeat of imperial Japan, was the last war that had
anything to do with any AMERICAN'S freedom (not counting the easy one-day turkey shoot in Grenada in 1983). That is, I've never come across any
factual-empirical evidence to the contrary, not based on emotion, sentiment, the flag-waving, religious-type nationalistic fervor.
So behold the reality (what a concept) of ACTUAL or proved sacrifice. Anything else, i.e. Christianity, is no different from the days when they threw
children into volcanoes in order to "appease the gods," or most generously, definitely not different ENOUGH, basically the same thing. Anything else
is just vampiric-cultist (figurative) blood drinking unless PROVED otherwise, and the infantile lack of taking enough responsibility, if really any,
for one's own life/actions. Mere BELIEF (lacking proof) in any kind of alleged "greater good" that comes from bloodshed and/or other death amounts
to the same basic mentality as a CHILDREN OF THE CORN-type cult.
