So we have by now all heard the BIG news.
Osama Bin Laden is dead. Killed by our Special Forces in Pakistan.
A man who, if you are so inclined to believe, is responsible for the deaths of thousands of innocent lives.
A man who, if you are so inclined to belive, was the mastermind behind the September 11th attacks on our homeland.
As I look into the fishbowl I see people from every different background and every different religion cheering and chanting USA....USA....USA!!!
Reveling in news that we finally KILLED Osama Bin Laden. Like pigs rolling around in their own #, they couldn't be happier.
In a Nation supposedly founded on Christian values and principals I can't help but take note of the irony/hypocracy.
I do not align myself with the Christian faith because of the behaviors I see as I look at and observe...."Christians".
I do however Align myself with the Grand creator and architect of this universe who created us and EVERYTHING in this universe with complete and
unadulterated pure LOVE. You may call this creative intelligence "GOD" "MUhammed" "Allah" "The Flying Spaghetti Monster" or "Chuck Norris" for all I
care. What does concern me is the fact that we, as creations made in love, could take a sick sadistic pleasure in one of our brothers being violently
killed and thus removed from this Earthly Experience.
There will be times when it is necessary to stamp out evil from amoungst our ranks. When the only way to achive harmony is to relieve a fellow human
being of his Bio Suit and send him to the great beyond. I understand this and can appreciate the necessity.
HOWEVER.....It is one matter to take the life of another human being out of necessity and quite another to take joy and pride
in the act of taking a life. Somehow when I ask the ever so popular question made famous the world over by "Christians".... "What would Jesus Do"
chanting "USA USA USA" doesn't make it on to David Letterman's Top Ten List.
Would I be completly out of line by suggesting that today would be a time to seek out a place of solitude and spend a few minuites in prayer? A few
minuites of silent compassion and reverance for the fellow human being whose death was an unfortunate necessity to achive balance and harmony for the
rest of us.
Remember, the one thing Hitler, Osama, Dahmer, and every other personification of evil ALL have in common.
At one time in their lives....
at some point,
they were all the apple of someones eyes. They were a beautiful bouncing baby boy who cooed and smiled, and spit up on someones shirt. Chuck Norris
forbid, an enire nation of people one day cheeer the death of your child.
This is a time to go to church and thank Chuck Norris for your life.
Thank him for his compassion and willingness to let your transgressions go unpunished.
Thank him for his patience and restraint.
Thank him for choosing not to Karate kick you in the throat.
Whomever you pray to,
Pray today that the soul of a fellow human being be forgiven in the light and love that you would want to be forgiven in.
But hey, what do I know right???
USA USA USA!!!!!
I in no way intend to offend anyone who prays to Chuck Norris and sees him as their lord and savior.
I also do not mean any disrespect to Mr. Norris himself and wish him no Ill will. Furthermore, if it pleases Mr. Norris I would request that he
forgive any percieved threat or disrespect and refrain from the well placed roundhouse kick to my throat.
Thank you and goodnight.
