23. Now let that be a lesson to you

Say heretical things, and the devotees of our national religion, the High Church of Redemptive Violence, will be all over you. Every one in uniform is a hero (until they aren't), every relic of the High Church (every gun, rifle, bullet, missile, aircraft carrier, F-15, bayonet, and so forth) is imbued with a sacredness that you can't begin to comprehend. The people who had their homes destroyed will soon be joining the chorus of Good Friday hosannas that they were so favored as to have been touched by the hand of their great god Violence.

Our next hymn is number 354, "Praise Holy Violence for the Freedom It Bestows." Like you mean it!
