Sunday Bloody Sunday

Today, while I worshipped with my family, ate lunch, and then relaxed with my children as we watched the X-Games on ESPN, Israel and Lebanon saw 80 rockets fired in a 15 minute period. Dozens and dozens and dozens of people are dead because of the current war in the Holy Land...people for whom Jesus died and for whom he expects us to suffer and die, if necessary. Still, Christians around the world continue to support "just war" (as if such a thing were possible). God created a peaceful and harmonious world, and this is the gift we offer our Lord. It is sickening...truly appalling...and the Church is complicit for failing to stand up and say, "No more!" Some days, I'm ashamed of the Church.

Here's a powerful U2 song about war (click on the "play" button)...
