Are we at war?
Someone in bible study raised the question of whether we are still at war in Iraq, in a nearly dismissive way.
I think I was able to explain to them that we were indeed still at war, and might well be at war for the next 20 years.
Or, until we surrender to people who think that murdering civilians is viewed favorably by God, and should be rewarded by the state.
All cultures are NOT created equal - this is indeed a cultural conflict, and I want ours to win.
