Living in Babylon

Obama makes the case for his new war.
Sometimes it is overwhelming to me to think of the rampant injustice in our nation, both at home and abroad.

We fund terrorism and slaughter thousands  in unjust wars of aggression around the world. At home, we butcher unborn children by the millions. Immorality and ignorance are practically virtues in our land. And our leaders openly trample on the laws of our nation and mock justice.

All of this prompted me to turn to the book of Habakkuk in the Old Testament. At first I thought that I would relate to Habakkuk's feelings about his own people, the nation of Israel. But I quickly realized that America has much more in common with ancient Babylon.
