God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen - Jars of Clay - listen now

Friday, September 30, 2005


Its as simple as this NYT:

Just as it wouldn't be appropriate to anchor a memorial to WWII Japanese internees with an interactive museum discussing their experiences next to the USS Arizona memorial in Pearl Harbor. It also isn't appropriate to build an IFC on the WTC site.

I'm not opposed to the idea of the IFC, though I remain unconvinced it would be anything other than an exercise in self-flagellation and groveling apologetics, it simply belongs somewhere other than the WTC site.

The NYT editorial says: "We believe that the power of that site should be used to consider what happened that day and to see what lessons we can derive from it, not only to mourn the dead."

I say the only lesson to be learned is that evil men desire our destruction and without regard for human life are willing to do anything within their power to accomplish it. We must fight them with every fiber of our being.
