  Our Holy War
Our country in is effort to remove religion from everything but a “personal” feeling has overlooked the fact that we are in a religious war. A holy war has been declared on us by Islamic fundamentalist. The west won this type a war before but that was before Columbus found America so we have forgotten what it was like and how to fight it. We can only remember back as far as Vietnam.
We can kind of understand a war of cultures and ideas fought in the cold war but a religious war is far beyond our comprehension. We as a nation can not understand that people would die for a religion. We have divorce ourselves so far from religion and religious ideals that we forget that there is a God.
I am a Christian and I would have trouble dying for what I believe in but if it came down to it I hope I would. I see in the Middle East and even here on these shores on 9/11 there are a group of people who are willing to die for what they believe in. They believe that to die would guarantee them entrance in to Paradise.
We need to understand that and be willing not only to fight for our country, as great as it is, but be willing to fight for our God.
