Remember the Troops
Published: Sunday, Jul. 04, 2010
To equate the Fourth of July with Christianity is absurd! I do not like the spreading of American-style democracy at the hands of the bloodthirsty and warlike Americans themselves. This does not lead to more Christianity, but to a nation drifting further.
Has America brought more Christianity and Christian values to Iraq or Afghanistan, or other nations it has attacked in one way or another in recent years? No, the opposite is true. America cannot impose righteousness on others. That is a personal affair, not something that can be imposed in a national crusade.
Many people want to go to the United States to lust after things! It's not to fulfill some dream of freedom! Materialism, "the devotion to material wealth and possessions at the expense of spiritual or intellectual values," is virtually synonymous with capitalism, the profit-driven system that dominates the economies and nations of today.
