The Iraq War, two letters

I will not be continuing my Creationism posts today. I do plan to return to them soon.

Then, I plan to answer the response about Iraq. I am sorry for the change in plans. Plans, in reality, often are altered for one reason or another. “The best laid plans … often go astray.” Thank you for your understanding and patience.

How many unborn toddlers were murdered today because of the humanistic, paganish, barbaric decisions of the United States Supreme Court?

Stop the
Murder of

“Anyone, then, who knows the good he ought to do and doesn’t do it, sins.” James 4: 17 (NIV)








The following two letters to the editor were printed on the same day, side by side in the Peoria Journal Star on September 20, 2007, page A4. As a reminder, the editorial staff writes the headline, not the letter writer.

Letter number one:

“How many must die in this war?

Am I alone in being uneasy about the weeks ahead for our country? We will be bombarded by the Bush administration and the generals in Iraq and told how we must protect the Iraqi people by keeping our troops there.

In all the talk, I want one more statistic out of the president: Has he or any of his generals ever given an estimate of how many young Americans have to die for his vague intentions?

Can we please care about our own?

>>>>> >>>>>>

First, the intentions of this administration are not vague! We are fighting Al-Qaida in Iraq so that we hopefully won’t have to fight them in the United States! We must defeat the terrorists in every situation and at every opportunity!

The purpose of any army is to fight wars to protect the nation. They know the risks involved in joining the army and have accepted those risked. I wonder if she would have written a similar letter during the early days of World War II.

I also have this question. Has she ever written a similar letter lamenting the murder of the 45 million (+ −) unborn babies murdered in this nation since the Supreme Court’s obscene Roe v. Wade decision? If not, where is her care and compassion for the tragic murder of those innocent, unborn babies?

Letter Number two:

“Tragic loss of life

Does anyone else think it ironic how our leftist politicians are so upset about how many of our soldiers are dying over in Iraq, yet have no problem with the aborting of innocent life?

When a soldier enlists it is his choice as an adult, knowing the risks. Most count it an honor to volunteer their lives for this country.

But the innocent child is still being formed by God in the mother’s womb. That child has no choice when its (I don’t know if this is the word used by the author or if this is selective editing by newspaper personnel. The correct word, of course, is his life or her life—my addition) life is snuffed out, in most cases, for the convenience of the mother.

These politicians cry how tragic it is that over 3,700 American soldiers have made the ultimate sacrifice. While I agree it is tragic, it is not nearly as tragic or immoral as 5 million innocent babies having had their lives taken from them in the same period of time.

Not only is the stance of these politicians ironic, it is downright pathetic. (I would add that it is also downright immoral and criminal. They will one day be required to answer to GOD and I don’t believe that GOD will be pleased with or accept their immoral answer!!!—my addition)

>>>> >. >>>>>>

You may have noticed that I wholeheartedly agree with the second letter while disagreeing with the first. Why do you think the Peoria Journal Star printed both letters on the same day? To demonstrate how balanced they are in their editorial selections? NOT!!!
