What exactly do these words mean? And how can they possibly be used to defend what we are doing in Iraq?
When George W. Bush talked to his “real father” about whether he should go to war with Iraq, he must not have been listening when the good lord said, “He who is without sin should throw the first stone”.
Now many will say that Bin Laden threw the first stone and i don’t disagree with that. But what does Iraq have to do with Bin Laden?
More importantly though, the first stone in the conflict between Christians and Muslims (that’s what this is all about in the end) was probably thrown long before those words got into the Bible in the first place.
Which takes me back to “moral authority”. Claiming to have “moral authority” in a mess like this is the most arrogant and dangerous thing a country can do. And we have done it.
