Taken from the blog of Stephen Law:

Even though they’re soldiers and know killing is part of their responsibility and duty, a number of them come to me very bothered about it…Our challenge is to assure them that what they are doing is morally acceptable from a Christian perspective and a patriotic one.

Major Eric Albertson, a Roman Catholic Chaplain in Iraq The Times, 8 Dec 2004, p.37

What a words! “Christian perspective“, “morally acceptable“. I almost feel the breathe of eternity and I’m sure I hear the laughter of idols.

Poor people. Ones came over the hills and far away to fight against people they have no idea about, other came to the same place to assure the former that killing is morally acceptable. Both of them are probably tormented by the desire to go home and by the intuition of overall stupidity of this situation.

I think in this case religion is just another pill to take.
