Blame Me for War
"If the time comes when despair sees violence as the only possible way, it is because Christians were not what they should have been. If violence is unleashed anywhere at all, the Christians are always to blame. This is the criterion, as it were, of the confession of sin. Always, it is because Christians have not been concerned for the poor, have not defended the cause of the poor before the powerful, have not unswervingly fought the fight for justice, that violence breaks out."

--Jacques Ellul

Thanks for checking in Jason. I was worried about you since you hadn't returned my calls. Good to know you're all right. :)

Thanks for the article. A lollipop factory, huh? Maybe that's where they've been hiding the WMD's this whole time? ;)
