Congratulations on having your daughter safe and sound. You have a lot to be proud of, John. I pass on my gratitude for her service.
…and the flag looks really cool:!:

Good post, John. I think there is something to be said for an embracing of secularism that leads to a country’s eventual demise. The philosophy or worldview of Secular Humanism provides no grounds nor basis for morality and without a real sense of morality a country turns inward, loses its desire and will to fight for the good of all and eventually collapses in on itself. That is not to say that there aren’t “good, secular” people in the world, but they are “borrowing” their moral beliefs from theism. They “have” morals but they can’t tell you where they come from. Theism is the only worldview that can give logical account for morality (or rationalism, for that matter). For instance, how does one determine what is “right” and what is “wrong” unless there is an objective standard to weigh an action against? Right and wrong become arbitrary. We see this happening with France now, one of the most secularized countries in the world. Where is there compassion for those outside of France? Where is their sense of loyalty to their friends? Where is their sense of right and wrong? To them, opposing the liberation of Iraq is “right” and cooperation with the rest of the world is “wrong.” Looking out for their own interests is “right” and remaining loyal to her allies is “wrong.” Arbitrary. The fact is, without God, all things are permissable. All things are “right”…including the right to self-destruct. I won’t go too far into how we see this played out between the two parties within our own country because I don’t want any more hate mail than I’m sure to get over what I’ve already said, but there are certainly implications. Just today I posted on Howard Dean saying, “Are we going to live in a theocracy where the highest powers tell us what to do? Or are we going to be allowed to consult our own high powers when we make very difficult decisions?” I’m not calling for a “theocracy” in the sense he used the word, but Dean built a campaign on his own high powers which couldn’t have been more liberal in every sense of the word, including national isolationism (Is he French?). That’s what secular humanism provides. Thanks, John. Again, good post.

I am grateful and thankful for people like your daughter who lay it on the line everyday for us. I agree that we are winning, and we will win. I am also grateful for the man who expressed his gratitude to your daughter on behalf of many of us. I pray God’s blessings and protection on her and all of our courageous soldiers.

You’re right, John…great post. I found myself rather misty reading it. Thanks for pointing it out.

No problem…she seems like a very nice lady (even if a little misguided :wink:)

So, I guess Carol disagrees with me then? 😆 Thanks for the plug, John. Best of luck in Seoul.
