A New York Times story this week noted President Barack Obama sent a secret letter to Russia’s president last month suggesting that he would back off deploying a new missile defense system in Eastern Europe if Moscow would help stop Iran from developing long-range nuclear weapons… As president, I would nix all plans to build missile defense systems, anywhere, I told the Gainsville (TX) Daily Register during a campaign tour. I mean, how does this square with the Gospel message? Thousands are dying of hunger everyday worldwide and millions of people don’t have clean drinking water. Yet we’re willing to pump hundreds of millions of dollars into even more protection for us in the face of so much potentially relievable human suffering. C’mmon. Note: I saw the following two bumper stickers on the same car yesterday: 1) I think. Therefore I am. 2) I have no idea where I’m going. Apparently this person’s not ‘thinking’ enough. Just like some of us might not be ‘thinking’ enough on this missile defense system thing.
