Lost Shoes

What was wrong with the barefooted reporter who threw his George Bush. He seemed to think that America invaded Iraq to improve the lives of the Iraqi people. If he was a serious journalist, he would know that the purpose of the war was to allow Americans to sleep peacefully at night and to make the world safe for American business interests in the Middle East.

Where did he get the idea that the deaths of thousands of Iraqi women and children is something to be concerned about. Surely he knows that the American military does not count civilian casulties. These towelheads and hajiis were going to hell anyway.

The guy just does not get it. He has lost his shoes; he is luck he still has his marbles.

I pray that this was written in jest.

Judgment is the purview of God alone. Have they received an authentic presentation of the Gospel? What struggles do they wage ware against in their hearts? What do they pray for at night? While we can condemn the actions of those who obviously commit and choose evil, none of us knows whether we ourselves or any other is written in the Book of Life. Consider the amazement of those whom Christ speaks at the Last Judgment when He says that He never knew them: even those who worked miracles in His name!

When I am tempted to such judgments, I reflect upon the actions of St. Moses the Ethiopian:

A brother at Scetis commited a fault. A council was called to judge him, to which Abba Moses was invited, but he refused to go to it. So the priest sent another messenger to Moses, urging him to come, since all the brothers were waiting for him. So Moses took his oldest, worn-out, leaky basket. filled it with sand. placed it on his back, and went to join the council of judgment. When the brothers saw him arriving, they went out to great him, asking him why he had arrived so burdened. Abba Moses said, "My many sins run out behind me, and I do not even see them, and yet today I have come to judge the sins of someone else." The brothers relented, called off the council, and forgave their erring brother.
