"With God on Our Side"

“So now as I’m leavin’
I’m weary as Hell
The confusion I’m feelin’
Ain’t no tongue can tell
The words fill my head
And fall to the floor
If God’s on our side
He’ll stop the next war.”

Personally, I don’t know Bob Dylan’s stance on religion but his song With God on Our Side sums up my reactions and feelings to the current quagmire in Iraq perfectly.

Didn't Christ say something about the peacemakers being blessed? I guess you must have been sleeping during that part of the sermon, right Mr. Bush? Religious fundamentalism doesn't seem to be just a symptom of the Middle East and, for all of their preaching, certain American politicians don't seem to have remembered the Ten Commandments very well. Isn't there one saying something to the affect of "Thou shalt not kill"? We try to impeach a president for sexual improprieties in the Oval Office but sending our sons and daughters to their death is forgivable?

How can you all sleep at night? Sometimes I'm ashamed to call myself a Christian...
