just something I'm pondering is all...

Why is it that the same people who think the "war on poverty" is a lost cause seem to be the same ones who think we can somehow win the "war on terror"?

Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom: She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy. ~Ezekial 16:49

ah, a confusion of "whys"...

"Why is it that they seem to be the same people...?"
(obvious: because many are)

"Why is it that they throw all of their resources into one and not the other?" (a mystery of the universe... or at least human nature...)

And then, there is the converse, perhaps of those of us who believe we can do something to alleviate hunger, but don't believe in bombing people. But, then, perhaps that is because we serve a Christ who fed people and turned the other cheek...
