: Ask the Bishop yourself !
: Admiration is not enough ...
: A bloody detail:
: Had a conversation with an Assyrian Priest (qasha) of the Assyrian Church of the East in the last weeks.
: He opined any strike against Iraq would be only like a necessary surgery, worth the cost of lives - if only Assyrians get better living conditions.
: What reminds me of Albright's dictum.
: Vultures in search for "collateral benefits"?
: What do you think ?
I think that any priest advocating the bombing of a country where his people reside and will be killed as a direct result of those bombs is not a holy man at all.
That can be taken one step farther: Any "holy person" of any religion that blesses bombs or other killing contraptions is a hypocrite.
That's what I think.
