A Song to Think About

In the early 80s I bought an LP (remember those?) by a Christian singer named Mark Heard called Victims of the Age. While it said little about redemption it said much about Christian conduct and our attitudes toward our fellow believers and unbelievers. My favorite song on the album was Everybody Loves A Holy War. I see it now in Islam's Jihad against the west and left's "jihad" against President Bush, but I think we too need to take this message to heart. I forget who said it, but the words were "He who fights a monster must take heed not to become a monster himself." In the struggle with those who hate us, we must not become like them.

The lyrics to this worthwhile song can be found here.

Iran and Syria are fueling this right now, and it sure don't look like Iran is about to back down. This could get messy enough that we all may not have a choice...

That song sure is true. And it's been applicable to just about every religious and political bent through time.

That quote was from Freiderich Nietzsche. I think Robert Heinlein hijacked it.

Those lyrics are so true - and uncannily descriptive of the state of Islam today.
