Thread Name: Prayer-Free Mourning
Subject: RE: Prayer-Free Mourning
I guess I'm sorry that a) this thread drifted so far off course, and b) that it then drifted all the way off the page. I started this to allow those of us who would like to avoid the terrorists' trap of turning this into a crusade, or holy war, or anything other than Civilized versus Barbarian, to have a place to talk about these "events" as they are being called by the media, without bringing in anybody's imaginary friends. Yes war is awful. Yes war is happening, or coming, or inevitable even perhaps. But the sorrow felt over these latest tragedies doesn't have to be overshadowed by We Don't Know What To Do Next So We're Going To Bash Somebody And Our Imaginary Friend Will Be Happy. Or even Our Imaginary Friend Isn't As Happy As Those Of You With A Different Imaginary Friend Might Think.
