DON’T THESE ‘CHRISTIANS’ KNOW THEIR OWN TEACHINGS?

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.” (Galatians 6:7)

I guess these so-called people of God think the above scripture only applies to ‘fags’ who get AIDS. When the proverbial chickens come home to roost from this one, do you think all the supporters of this misbegotten Iraq adventure are going to hold themselves responsible? I doubt it. There are still people alive who swear that “we coulda won it [Vietnam] in ’68 if not for the hippies…”

Anyway, people, this what your tax dollars are paying for:

From ‘Gook’ to ‘Raghead’ (excerpt)

Bob Herbert

Mr. Delgado’s background is unusual. He is an American citizen, but because his father was in the diplomatic corps, he grew up overseas. He spent eight years in Egypt, speaks Arabic and knows a great deal about the various cultures of the Middle East. He wasn’t happy when, even before his unit left the states, a top officer made wisecracks about the soldiers heading off to Iraq to kill some ragheads and burn some turbans.

“He laughed,” Mr. Delgado said, “and everybody in the unit laughed with him.”

The officer’s comment was a harbinger of the gratuitous violence that, according to Mr. Delgado, is routinely inflicted by American soldiers on ordinary Iraqis. He said: “Guys in my unit, particularly the younger guys, would drive by in their Humvee and shatter bottles over the heads of Iraqi civilians passing by. They’d keep a bunch of empty Coke bottles in the Humvee to break over people’s heads.”

He said he had confronted guys who were his friends about this practice. “I said to them: ‘What the hell are you doing? Like, what does this accomplish?’ And they responded just completely openly. They said: ‘Look, I hate being in Iraq. I hate being stuck here. And I hate being surrounded by hajis.’ “

    Apparently they don’t know their own teaching or they think it doesn’t apply to others.
