I haven?t been moved to write much over the past year. Not really a case of the writer?s block, but more a combination of event?s moving too swiftly to comment upon (this is not a web log and I am about to start daily posts), are moving slowly forward (war on terror) and do not need another sermon by me on patience or coming across a piece in my research for the next column that resonates so true that I find myself saying ?I couldn?t have said it better than that myself?.
My final lame excuse for not writing more is that we had another year of growth in 2005 and I find I have less time to really do a piece justice; since I am never at peace with mediocrity it?s really healthier for me if I don?t write unless I can really devote myself to the exercise.
And now I feel compelled to write.
I never thought I would ever say this, but the most recent message from Ayman al-Zawahri , the alleged #2 man in Al-Qaida has something I actually agree with. In it he says:
?The insults against Prophet Muhammad are not the result of freedom of opinion but because what is sacred has changed in this culture,? he said. ?The Prophet Mohammed, prayers be upon him, and Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, are not sacred anymore."
Yes, it seems nothing is sacred anymore. Christian symbols are being banned from public life, not only in the Arab Mid-East but in the United States too. Throughout the world religious intolerance and hatreds are being fanned. I certainly don?t advocate theoracracy, a return to the church-state, but the moral paradigms of the world?s great religions are the basis for all the civilization of humankind.
The elimination of respect and reverence for religion, and the methodical elimination of their symbols from public view, the contempt for all that is sacred by our culture of secular consumption erodes the moral strength and will of man. With that erosion the capacity to accept and even embrace evil, to accept as commonplace the public display of moral outrages, increases.
For example, it is acceptable to use God?s name in vain on television, but one must never utter the word ?shit?. Does this mean that God is not sacred, but shit is, on television anyhow?
If Islam is to survive it must learn to reject the rhetoric of hatred Al-Qaida professes. If the west is to survive it must regain it?s sense of a revered public place for religion, virtues and moral values. Without them we will become increasingly weak, directionless and without fortitude.
The Christian season of Lent began Wednesday, March 1 this year and marks the start of 40 days of penitential practices. These include prayer, fasting, almsgiving, abstinence, the practice of charity, works of mercy, asceticism, sacrifices and examination of conscience. Regardless of your religion, these Lenten practices are only good and virtuous. In my heart I have faith that their universal practice would lead to a better world.
Then Jesus said to his disciples, "Whoever wishes to come after me must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow me. Matthew 16: 24 (NAB).
Between now and Easter week in mid April, take some time in solitude, pray and thank God for the blessings he have given you.
We have enjoyed the redneck jokes for years. It's time to take a reflective look at the core beliefs of a culture that values home, family,
country and God. If I had to stand before a dozen terrorists who threaten my life, I'd choose a half dozen or so rednecks to back me up. Tire irons, squirrel guns and grit -- that's what rednecks are made of. I hope I am one of those. If you feel the same, pass this on to your redneck friends. Ya'll know who ya'll are...
You might be a redneck if: It never occurred to you to be offended by the phrase, "One nation, under God."
You might be a redneck if: You've never protested about seeing the 10 Commandments posted in public places.
You might be a redneck if: You still say "Christmas" instead of "Winter Festival."
You might be a redneck if: You bow your head when someone prays.
You might be a redneck if: You stand and place your hand over your heart when they play the National Anthem
You might be a redneck if: You treat Viet Nam vets with great respect, and always have.
You might be a redneck if: You've never burned an American flag.
You might be a redneck if: You know what you believe and you aren't afraid to say so, no matter who is listening.
You might be a redneck if: You respect your elders and expect your kids to do the same.
You might be a redneck if: You'd give your last dollar to a friend.
"Welcome to Entropy Burgers -- may I take your order?"
"I put in disorder a long time ago. The service here is getting worse all the time."
"My experience Gibbs me reason to believe you."
"I know the waitress who asked that, too. Her name's Ellen Omega. She really made me thermally dynamic. So, I asked her out. I tell you, when she don't like you, she really Boltz, man. Women like that are never distributed normally among the population."
"What kind of Poisson would say something like this?"
A QUOTE FOR YOUR THOUGHTS
Laws alone can not secure freedom of expression; in order that every man present his views without penalty there must be spirit of tolerance in the entire population.
US (German-born) physicist (1879 - 1955)
If God does not exist, then everything is permitted.
Fyodor Dostoevsky, The Devils
The unfortunate thing about this world is that the good habits are much easier to give up than the bad ones.
