Drones and Good Friday

One of my Good Friday disciplines is to remember Jesus’ words, “Don’t weep for me, daughters of Jerusalem.” I then ask for whom I should weep today.

Someday President Obama and all Americans will be ashamed of this …

So, tomorrow, as I remember Jesus and his suffering, I will think of people suffering today, people with whom Jesus was and is in complete solidarity … in Pakistan and Afghanistan, in Congo, in Israel-Palestine, in my own state and neighborhood … mothers, children, dads, grandparents. Lord, have mercy.

If anyone at the White House is listening, you should know that more and more people are becoming aware and speaking out on the issue of drones. We’re ashamed … and we want America to take a higher road than this. Lord, have mercy.
