Such nonsense. In the era where mankind was still pummeling each other to death eyeball-to-eyeball, the first lethal stone cast from a distance was probably threatening to the morality of that moment.

In today's moment, any death caused by political mandate, regardless of the mechanism/device used to cause such can be construed as an affront to our momentary morality.

We'd all better buckle up our high boots because lethal technology and mankind's ravenous need to dominate those unlike themselves is going to take us places we're evidently ill prepared to visit.

Matters of conscience are best left there. As soon as we begin to debate with ourselves out loud, the chinks in our armor are exposed. Take for example "We have made our veterans into false idols, blood sacrifice on the National Altar of War". I'm glad I didn't say that. “We have made war entertainment, enjoying box seats in the carnival of death …” Many would argue that exposing the public to the horrors of war has done more to dissuade public opinion from supporting war. “We have sanitized killing and condoned extrajudicial assassinations: death by remote control, war made easy without due process …” He would prefer putting our children in harm's way as they defend us from terrorists?

Interesting to say the least. Sounds like a True Man of God but confused why he donned the Uniform in the first place.

The only one less likely as a Military Chaplain than a Unitarian Universalist would be a Quaker.
