Creativa, Restorativa, Positiva, Negativa and Imbeciliva
I was in line at Brooke Army Medical Center today getting a prescription filled.
I stood behind an older lady, chatting aimlessly with her when a young GI rolled by in a shiny new wheelchair, with both of his legs amputated and freshly bandaged.
The lady and I looked at each other sadly, and I said, "I hate this war."
She nodded in agreement.
I added, "And I hate the idea of those draft dodgers in the Bush administration waging this war. And I'm a liberal saying that."
She said, somewhat defensively, "I'm a Christian," as if being a Christian was the polar opposite of being a liberal.
I said, "Well, Jesus was a total liberal, so you're in good company."
By then, she was called to the window and walked away.
That was before I could explain to the old fool how Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11, and how Bush was a fucking idiot who embodied the Anti-Christ.
Attention Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhists and Hindus:
Your God does not advocate killing in his (or her) name.
Your God is not on anyone's side during wartime.
There is nothing holy about war.
If you love your God, you should hate ALL war.
It's as simple as that.
