Thanks for the "Compliment" Senator Kerry

At RMFC and with the posts in this blog, we try to focus on our mission-promoting God's design for the family.

However, every once in a while, something comes along which is outrageous and deserves a comment. This is such a time.

As many of you may know, I have been a naval officer, chaplain and veteran of Desert Storm and Operation Iraqi Freedom, for nearly 20 years.

I am outraged by Senator John Kerry's comments several days ago. Bad joke or not, this type of juvenile "humor" is egregious on the part of a United States senator.

We are at war. Every day, young Americans of all ethnicities, age and educational levels (yes, we have Ph.d's in Iraq) are putting their flesh and blood on the line. To be insulted like this is not only a morale-buster but undermines our war effort.

Senator Kerry, wake up. I am stunned that such an obtuse statement would be made. This is not Vietnam. Despite your comments and voting record, our nation's military is made up of some of our brightest and smartest young people.
