Where is the outrage?
Where’s the outrage?
I’m amazed at the level of rhetoric that has been generated by my comments about Joe Knollenberg being a sinner in regard to his votes supporting President Bush’s fiasco in Iraq. There was a time in this country when the religious community would have condemned the war in Iraq as a moral issue. Nowadays leaders of the faith community defend the war or ignore it. It seems they are more interested in Terry Schiavo than the hundreds of thousands of Iraqis that have died in and been displaced by this unjust war. People of faith don’t seem to think that an Iraqi life is worth as much as an American life. I thought all life was precious to god. Where are the leaders of the faith community now? Where is their moral outrage at President Bush for lying this country into war and being the cause of thousands of American soldiers’ deaths and thousands of soldiers being seriously wounded? Where is the outrage from people of faith about that? Instead they have their panties in a bunch because I asked Joe Knollenberg to atone for his sin of voting to support an unjust war. The shame of it.
Let’s not be distracted from the real issue by Joe Knollenberg’s campaign manager. The real moral issue here is the loss of life being caused by Joe “Knollenbush’s” war. Why doesn’t the pro-life community rise up now and tell Joe Knollenberg to withdraw his support for the moral outrage of this administration, the war in Iraq?
