Child Rearing -- Taliban Style

From the Book of Common Prayer:

Almighty God, we remember before you today this child
You and his family; and we pray that, having
opened to him the gates of larger life, you will receive him
more and more into your joyful service, that, with all who
have faithfully served you in the past, he may share in the
eternal victory of Jesus Christ our Lord; who lives and
reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God,
for ever and ever. Amen.

The full story may be found here...

I read the story of how men whom John Brennan has described as ostensibly being on a "quest for personal revival and holiness", sadistically and wantonly snuffed out the life of a seven year old boy as an act of cowardly revenge. Once more, after dealing with the thought of a terrorized child being ripped from his family and having his life strangled out, I'm rubbing my temples in amazement.

I've not heard one statement from Ministry of Truth Spokesman Gibbs, or his boss condemning this act of raw barbarism.

This should serve as yet another reminder of the ramifications of the mortal struggle between the Judeo-Christian consensus and benighted wahabism. The latter seeks to drag western civilization in chains back to the eight century. It is willing to die for a hellish world where women are on par with livestock and lives may be snuffed for a pretext. The former stands in direct opposition to all that the latter stands for.

In all of this, I take comfort in the fact that the one who sees the "one sparrow fall" has seen this tragedy and has made due note. He's made his position clear concerning those who consider hanging children acceptable behavior: would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
