Memorial Day Nonsense

Email Print

Is there in American history any war, military action, CIA covert action, or foreign intervention of any kind in any country that was for the purpose of defending our freedoms mentioned in the Bill of Rights?

Then why do we hear on Memorial Day every year that we should remember those who died to preserve our freedoms? What does a U.S. soldier dying while fighting in Vietnam or Iraq have to do with any of our freedoms? Were soldiers from Vietnam or Iraq going to come over here and take away our right of freedom of speech?

Christians are even worse when they talk about honoring U.S. soldiers who died so that we can have the freedom we have to talk about Christ. What utter nonsense.
