“Holy War” has to be the biggest frickin’ oxymoron on the planet.
It’s been over a week since the terrorists acts shook our country and I find myself wanting to throw up. I am appalled by the violence, religious dogma and all-consuming ignorance being committed by OUR OWN PEOPLE. While the world shows it’s sympathy & support and thousands of US citizens rally to donate time, money & blood> there are those who undercut our humanity with contempt & selfish ideals.
You’ve heard about them on the news. The ones trying to make a quick buck. The bigots who choose to harass while coping with their miserable existence. Those that would spit in the face of other Americans and their heritage. It makes me angry, but more than it makes me feel ashamed.
“God continues to lift the curtain and allow the enemies of America to give us probably what we deserve.” BULLSHIT. Tell that to the families who lost their sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, husbands & wives in an act of unspeakable violence. NOBODY, be they Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Jew, Muslim, Christian, Agnostic, Straight, Gay, Republican or Democrat deserve anything remotely resembling the events of last week. I overheard a friend explaining how the Taliban twists the Kuran and the religion of Islam as part of their quest for power and I’ve been witnessing the same arrogance by televangilists for years.
I have to wonder what part of “United We Stand” is lost on these people? With a prolonged campaign inevitably approaching against this terrorist threat let us not forget what it means to be free or the responsibility that comes with such freedom. Now is the time to rally together and show the world the best that America has to offer not bicker like little children who missed nap time.
