From recovering Republican John Lofton:
IN FRONT OF store I visit daily this exchange occurred:
Soldier (offering small flag to me): "Would you like to support our troops?"
Me (calmly): "No, sir, I would not."
Soldier: "Why not?"
Me: "Because our military is waging unGodly, unConstitutional wars all over the world, murdering/maiming innocent people, and doing the same thing to those fighting these wars."
Soldier (looking as if he might agree): "But that is the government."
Me: "No, sir. That is YOU. It's a voluntary military. And you could refuse to engage in these various evil activities."
Soldier: He simply stares blankly at me.
Me (gesturing toward small Bibles with camouflage covers they are selling): "And no Christian can serve in today's military."
I walk into the store.
