Time for hate, not for love

When will we ever learn? Fifty years after Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech, America is about to get involved in another war. Syria is a divided nation with a complex history and a population that is the middle of a terrible civil war.

Yes, innocent children are dying in Syria. This is a sad fact that is a part of every war. Children are also dying in Chicago. Should we ask the U.S. military to bomb Chicago in order to save the children in that city?

How about saving the children in Palestine? They are suffering from unjust policies put in place by the political leaders in Israel. Should we ask our military to bomb Israel?

The innocent children are suffering from a brutal government in Egypt. Should we ask the military to bomb Egypt?

When the government of South Africa was killing innocent children, did we ever consider sending our military there to bomb them? Of course not; President Ronald Reagan had a policy of “constructive engagement” with the government of South Africa.

Legal and illegal guns in the hands of people in America are killing innocent children every day. Should we ask our military to bomb the gun factories or the offices of the NRA?

The answer to all of the above questions is “No!” However, why do we always have money to kill our enemies and we never have enough money to heal our children?

We always have enough time and money for war. We never have enough time and money for peace. We always have the time and money to kill people anywhere in the world. We never have enough time and money to heal people anywhere in the world.

We always have time for hate. We never have time for love.

Hate and war kills people. Love and peace heals people.

Rev. Timothy T. Malone

    Congress has no obligation to save Obama's ego, which is what his "war talk" is all about. Now, if Obama had a real plan, e.g., kill Assad, give some air support to the "rebels, while allowing the "rebels" and whoever succeeds Assad continue to duke it out, that's one thing. But to ask Congress and our military men and women to save his foolish "red line" butt . . . no thanks.

    Rev. Tim Malone is consistently a voice for peace and justice. He is absolutely correct that "love and peace heals people." As a former soldier, I do not want to see a single U.S. soldier hurt fighting in Syria. I also do not want anyone to spend the rest of their life regretting killing people because Syria's central bank is outside the control of the international banking cartel seeking a one-world monetary system, government and religion. God bless Tim Malone and all peacemakers!
