Would Jesus Celebrate Memorial Day 2009?

It appears that this is my 4th Memorial Day post on this blog.

They Died In Vain: Memorial Day 2008

The change in Presidents does not change my assessment of the issue: Should we honor those who choose to fight?

The United States has three holidays which honor those who chose war over peace: Veterans' Day (those who fought and lived); Memorial Day (those who fought and died) and Independence Day (those who took up arms to abolish their government). ("Armed Forces Day" is a distant fourth.)

Shouldn't a Christian nation like America have a day to honor those who withstood the temptation to violence and vengeance and chose peace instead?

If you disagree with the answer implied in my questions, join me at the Ozarks Virtual Town Hall, Saturday morning at 10:30 am Central time.

Type in your comment or question in the box or phone in and talk live.

Imagine: a holiday to honor conscientious objectors.

It would ruin everything for the State.
