Washington Times Editorial

If your a fan of Jason over at The Wild Hunt you have probably already read his post about the Washington Times editorial slamming to give the Air Force decision to give Pagans their own circle. I won't rehash too much but to say the least it was not at all researched or fact checked. It was just a poor article as a whole. Well Jason had something to say about it and one of the commenters also encouraged others to contact the editors and post comments. I don't know if mine will be allowed but here is what I left:

Wow this writer has obviously not read his history books. Or done any fact checking for that matter. I am reminded of Shakespeare: "Prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us do we not laugh? If you poison us do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?" Their Pagan beliefs are just as sincere as anyone elses belief in Jesus. They risk their lives just like any other person in the military, do they not deserve the same respect? We are all human beings (subject to the same vices and virtues) and as such deserve the same freedoms.

I hope those of you who haven't done so already go over to the Washington Times and leave a comment or contact the editors.
