"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Black Monday - the Stock Market is down again... among other things.

More photos from the Israeli war against Palestinians in Gaza.
I assume it is rather obvious I find the photos I've been posting today to be rather upsetting, shattering my illusion concerning the war in Gaza. The sight of dead babies always gets to me. In fact, photos of aborted babies helped to convince me human life was being destroyed in abortion procedures. However, I doubt many people from countries where abortion is legal will be moved by the sight of dead Palestinian babies.
My apologies - I get a little crazy when I see photos such as these - images that speak louder than words.
That's all.


  1. It gets to me too, Terry. Dead babies - born or unborn - bothers me beyond words can express.

    Even though the Muslim militants who continually shower Israel with mortars and grenades should be punished, your past few posts show that even the military of "God's chosen people" can be no better than the Islamic fundamentalists who want to destroy them and the rest of the world.

  2. Thanks Tom - I wondered if you would understand my apparent about face on this.

  3. Terry,

    I would think that before you do an about face, check the validity of the source of the photos. Consider this story: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,479485,00.html
