125. Actually that is one of the best ...
Edited on Wed Feb-02-11 05:27 PM by mntleo2
Remember at the beginning of the Vietnam War there was a lot of "Rah-rah" wingnuts crying pretty much the same BS as they cried for the Iraq war. I personally knew young men who went to that war simply because their parents told them, "Unless you go, you are no son of mine ever again, if you don't..."

"Kill a commie for God" was their mantra. When the Animals performed that song, it initially outraged established religions and at one point got banned. It is a powerful reminder how religion "overlooks" immoral murder when it is inconvenient to make any outcry when it comes to unwarranted war.

Very powerful indeed.
