September 11th is a Day of International Mourning...


From "Father Christian" (GAFCON sidebar):

"SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY...an example of religion at its worst encouraged a few evil idiots to murder about three thousand men, women and children in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania. Since then thousands and thousands more have died, and countless others have been hideously wounded as a consequence of that terrible morning. Yet sadly the exponents of bad religion – all bad religion, irrespective of brand or deity - seem to have learned nothing.

There are still fools who think it glorious to live and die by the sword in an effort to kill those daring to see God through their own eyes. Whatever the religion, there are still those who claim a mandate to crush dissenters. There are still those who think the Divine can be reduced to a series of propositions, formulas, and equations – and that anyone questioning their arithmetic must at all costs be silenced....

And

...please: hold someone dear to you very close, and tell them how wonderful they make the world. Because you never know when those who hate God and all the wonder and Light that God brings will try to tear you apart for a season...

Amen

...God bless us all on this sad day, and keep us safe until we are once more together."
