The Lord's Grace
Peace, not War
16 Nov 2001
With all of this talk of impending
war, many of us will encounter "Peace Activists" who will try and convince
us that we must refrain from retaliating against the ones who terrorized
us all on September 11, 2001.
These activists may be alone
or in a gathering, most of us don't know how to react to them. When
you come upon one of these people, or one of their rallies, here are the
proper rules of etiquette:
1. Listen politely while
this person explains their views. Strike up a conversation if necessary
and look very interested in their ideas. They will tell you how revenge
is immoral, and that by attacking the people who did this to us, we will
only bring on more violence. They will probably use many arguments,
ranging from political to religious to humanitarian.
There is no difference in an individual
attacking an unsuspecting victim or a group of terrorists attacking a nation
of people. It is unacceptable and must be dealt with. Perhaps
at a high cost.
2. In the middle of their remarks,
without any warning, punch them in the nose.
3. When the person gets up off
of the ground, they will be very angry and they may try to hit you, so
4. Very quickly and calmly remind
the person that violence only brings about more violence and remind them
of their stand on this matter. Tell them if they are really committed
to a non-violent approach to undeserved attacks, they will turn the other
cheek and negotiate a solution. Tell them they must lead by example
if they really believe what they are saying.
5. Most of them will think for
a moment and then agree that you are correct.
6. As soon as they do that,
hit them again. Only this time hit them much harder. Square
in the nose.
7. Repeat steps 2-5 until the
desired results are obtained and the idiot realizes how stupid of an argument
he/she is making.
We owe our military a huge debt
for what they are about to do for us and our children. We must support
them and our leaders at times like these. We have no choice.
We either strike back, VERY HARD, or we will keep getting hit in the nose.
