Journal EnlightenmentFan's Journal: March 19: Replying to Bush's speech before he makes it

Mr. President; the war you have worked so hard for has begun. Brave young soldiers are putting their lives on the line against Iraq. My heart goes out to them--and I am deeply grateful for their courage and dedication even though I oppose you, Mr. Bush.

You claim to believe in the God of Christianity. I claim not to believe in that God. And yet tonight I am praying for you to the God I do not believe in--just in case He exists. I pray that God, in the final judgment that you claim to believe in and I claim not to believe in, will not hold against you the torment and misery you have unleashed--that you and your advisors have spent great and concerted effort to unleash.

I am not praying for Saddam Hussein-- I am sure he is every evil thing you claim. But tonight I am praying for my countrymen, and for the Iraqis about to die in torment, and I am wishing that I believed in the God I am praying to.
