The Big Chill...errr Kill

What if you saw a fellow citizen executed by your Government without any trial?

What if that person did not have any official charges brought against him?

What if the only evidence offered against that citizen was: alleged support for past crimes, online teachings, alleged links to radicals, or a Government imposed title?

Would you not be horrified if that person was your son, brother, uncle, friend, friend of a friend…?

What would you think if your President personally held a press conference celebrating the death this citizen as a “major” victory?

What if it was not just one citizen but two?

What if all the major news networks supported and reveled in the murder?

If that person was Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or Muslim, would their life (or rights) be any less valuable?

These are not hypothetical questions anymore. Last Friday, with the assassination of Anwar al-Awlaki this happened in the USA. This has happened throughout history in the past and the outcomes were never pretty. Do not “gird yourselves” with Fox News, the CNN, MSNBC, or the Drudge Report. “Gird yourself” with truth.

“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”
Galatians 6:7

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life…”

"I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"
Evelyn Beatrice Hall
