Twelve miners lost their lives this week in a tragic accident at the Sago Mine in West Virginia. A thirteenth miner was rescued and clings to life.
Six Iraqi civilians were killed and three more wounded today when an American fighter jet dropped a bomb on the wrong house.
Here's what White House press secretary Scott McClellan had to say regarding these two tragic events:
I wonder if there's any coal in Iraq? Their lives seem to be far more disposable...
Curious how self-proclaimed compassionate Christian men determine the value of a life based on its location on a map.
I wonder what God would say?
The next time I see a politician preaching about a culture of life, I'll have to check to see if he's got an atlas.
the world would be a different place if christians actually cared about what jesus would do.
and yes, i realize that some christians try to behave in a christ-like manner. it's unfortunate that those christians in this country elect leaders who so poorly represent their ideals.::::: | January 5, 2006 11:57 PM

A quote from Barry Goldwater I thought you might find disturbing...
"You've got to forget about this civilian. Whenever you drop bombs, you're going to hit civilians."-Barry M. Goldwater
To lump all Christians into this crime is just as criminal as to have committed the murders yourself. And this from an atheist.
God has killed more people, innocent and otherwise, than any other reason throughout time. Based on that, I would say he would say "Good show."::::: | January 6, 2006 3:53 PM
I don't lump all Christians into the same group by any means. Just the ones who preach to others values which they can always find excuses for not upholding themselves.
Some of the greatest people I know are quite religious. Some are Christians, and others follow different faiths. Though I disagree with their beliefs, I respect them very much because they live by their beliefs as best they can.
I think our current administration mixes religion with politics too often. And, too often, the religion offered up by them resembles a Chinese take out menu.
Not that I've got anything against Egg Drop Soup and Kung Pao Chicken.::::: | January 6, 2006 4:21 PM
