There is No Moral Equivalence

There is No Moral Equivalence September 11, 2011

Just a quick 9/11 thought after reading commentary on Patheos and elsewhere.

I’m finding the moral equivalence and hand-wringing from many Christians on this day to be obscene.  There is a profound moral difference between America and its jihadist enemies.  If you cannot see that difference then you are most likely overcome with ignorance, foolish ideology, or malice.

Fortunately for you, however, you are protected from the natural consequences of your ignorance and malice by fellow citizens who see the world clearly and are willing to lay down their lives for you, your spouse, and your children.

We are not perfect.  We have never been perfect — not in 2001, not in 1941, not in 1861, not ever — but imperfect people can still fight courageously for a just cause.  And that is precisely what we are doing today.
