Sacrificing Your Children to Molech

Mr Babka has it right.

The Schrub and Company are zealots, and will let nothing stop them in their crusade to bring about their beloved Armageddon.

In their world, democracy means they run the show and the people kneeling down and kissing their feet. No dissent will be allowed. They decide who is a terrorist. They decide what is best for everyone else, and We the People's lives are meaningless to them.


Sacrificing Your Children to Molech
by Jim Babka

Molech was a pagan god in the Old Testament. Why do I bring up the Old Testament?

Because there is an odd paradox going on right in front of us: All-too-many of the folks who cheered the very brief pro-life/anti-cloning portion of Bush's State of the Union and who claim that the O.T. is part of their scripture - their guide to life -
are celebrating the sacrifice of young men and women for the god of Security.

They might as well be worshipping Molech.

Worship of Molech required people to throw one of their living children into a fire. The O.T. tells us this sacrifice was strongly condemned, for obvious reasons, by God.

But the people worshipping Molech undoubtedly believed they were serving their community. Things like the prosperity of the harvest and protection from invaders may have been deep motivators as they attempted to please their blood-thirsty god.

Apparently, the same idolatry exists today. Here is George W. Bush, from the most memorable part of his speech Wednesday night...

One name we honor is Marine Corps Sergeant Byron Norwood of Pflugerville, Texas, who was killed during the assault on Fallujah. His mom, Janet, sent me a letter and told me how much Byron loved being a Marine, and how proud he was to be on the front line against terror. Ladies and gentlemen, with grateful hearts, we honor freedom's defenders, and our military families, represented here this evening by Sergeant Norwood's mom and dad, Janet and Bill Norwood.

The presence of this couple garnered the longest ovation of the night. I ached for the couple as I watched Janet Norwood clutch her husband as hard as she could. In fact, I choked-up. I felt so sorry for these people.

I believe the only lasting memory we'll have of this speech will have nothing to do with Social Security. We will remember that somber couple in tears, standing without their son and hardly able to stand at that.

You can call me an iconoclast, for if that means turning my back on idolatry, then I wear the label proudly.

I maintain that this was cruel and heartless. This was not a grand gesture. While the Norwood's are sincerely attempting to find meaning in the loss of their son, the Bush administration was using them as a prop. This is the cold calculus of politics.

Here's what really happened...

* The Norwoods were recognized by the man who offered their son for death.

* Then the Norwoods received a dramatically long ovation from the mob below them. This is the very same mob that was too gutless to prevent that death from happening two years ago.

Truly Honoring Sergeant Norwood

We can truly honor Marine Corps Sergeant Byron Norwood of Pflugerville, Texas by remembering why he died. Of course, in the chest-thumping of Wednesday night the President neglected to mention why he really died.

Sergeant Norwood died while seeking Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. He, and so many others, died without finding them. They are still unfound and even his Commander-in-Chief has abandoned the search.

It's time to shame those who still worship Molech and bring the troops home. But that is not what is happening.

In this same State of the Union the President made quite clear that he has designs on Iran - designs that are virtually identical to those he had for Iraq in 2003. As usual, the gods of Security require it, and, as it turns out, so does the spirit of Freedom.

And so, the mob of cowards that cheered the Norwoods so enthusiastically is likely to sit on their hands as the Commander-in-Chief turns thousands of other gparents into "Janet and Bill Norwoods."

And the worship of Molech will live on.
