What huge imago madeA psychopathic god:I and the public knowWhat all schoolchildren learn,Those to whom evil is doneDo evil in return. (W. H. Auden’s poem, September 1, 1939) Almost immediately after the horrific terrorist attack September 11, 2001 on the World Trade Center and Pentagon killed 3000 Americans, the drumbeat for retribution and revenge pounded loudly. Drowned out were voices calling for restraint. While peoples from nations around the world offered sympathy, so-called Christian America cast aside Jesus’s clear teachings against returning evil for evil to instead foment violent war on Afghanistan, to be followed 18 months later upon Iraq.… Read More
Morally Derelict Sen. Blumenthal Cheers Ukraine/Russia War Because Americans Are Not Dying, and Russia Is Getting Weaker
I am so angrily disgusted by U.S. government leaders who smugly fund and urge further warfare carnage in the Ukraine/Russia war. Even though Ukraine has been unable to reclaim territory seized by Russia at huge casualty costs on both sides, Sen. Romney recently called the proxy war the ‘the best national defense spending’ the US has ever done. Apparently Biden, Romney, Blumenthal, and maybe most others are blind to moral evil.

The following article’s subtitle says to modern Jews, “It was not baseless hatred that led to the destruction of the Temple in antiquity. It was the arrogance of the military and the absence of political judiciousness – precisely the same dangers we now face.” Read this lament by a modern Jewish author who distinguishes between God’s original intent for Israel and Israel’s misappropriation over millennia.

The caption to this picture is the following: “An Iraqi family reacts after three family members, innocent civilians, were shot and killed by U.S. Marines in an incident in Baghdad, Iraq, on April 9, 2003.” (Photo by Carolyn Cole/Los Angeles Times via Getty Images) This picture hurts my heart. Look at the pain of the mother and surviving children at the murder of their children. Yes, murder, because the U.S. invasion of Iraq was justified by blatant lies propagandized by cowardly inept news media to the gullible American public still seething over the 9-11 attacks on the World Trade Center… Read More
