Letters to the editor

Dear Editor,

After our war in Iraq, Stephen Hess of the Brookings Institute commented that "Bill Clinton needed to be a patriot" because he avoided service in Vietnam. Am I the only one who finds Clinton's "patriotism" repulsive? As with Vietnam, the media was quick to criticize the president's action, but only on tactical grounds. The war left "tyranny intact", and the Boston Globe called for Bill Clinton to help "the Iraqi people overthrow their tyrant". If I publicly called for the American people to overthrow Bill Clinton, I would be arrested for sedition!

The average American consumes roughly 100 times the resources of one tribeswoman in Kenya, and about ten times as much as the average world citizen. Harvard zoologist E.O. Wilson has calculated that if the rest of the Earth used resources at the rate the United States and Japan do, the planet could sustain a population of only 200 million. The United States directly supports tyrants all over the world, so long as they allow us to exploit their resources. Like the Mafia, we make examples out of both Vietnam and Iraq because they refuse to play along.

The media concentrates our "patriotism" on these few tyrants who are foolish enough to oppose us, in order to raise public support for punishing or killing them. The "useful" tyrants are ignored if possible, or if necessary, their hideous crimes are reported as mysterious "civil wars". The Globe recently lamented that "the world paid little Indonesian troops killed thousands of separatists" in Timor without even mentioning that this slaughter was paid for almost entirely by United States taxpayers through direct military aid!

What kind of "church" promotes death? The New Testament meaning of the word church denotes an organized community acknowledging the Lord Jesus Christ as their supreme ruler, and meeting statedly or as opportunities offer for religious worship. The purpose for Christ's coming to earth was to bring life. God is life, and God is love. That is why your use of the word church in connection with terms such as euthanasia and suicide is a contradiction in terminology. As a mother and grandmother I appeal to you to cease distribution of bumper stickers and other propaganda that promotes death.
