Going to War?

We are a very critical point in our nation’s history.  It seems like we are on the verge of going to war with Syria.  The evidence seems to be clear, that over 1000 people were killed in Syria by chemical warfare, and by their own president.  How should the United States react to what happened?  Should we go to war with Syria over what happened in their country?  I do not know if there is a clear answer to these questions, but I do know that every American should turn to prayer at this critical moment.  Hopefully, war can be avoided.  Let us pray for the “leader” of our country to make the right decision, and that he consults with his own congress before making this decision that will affect so many.  What I would like to point out in the midst of this difficult moment is the sheer hypocrisy of our government “leaders”.  The Secretary of State John Kerry said that what President Assad did was a “crime against conscience, and a “crime against humanity”.  Obama also spoke of the heinous crimes that were done to the Syrian people by their own president, mentioning that children were killed. He said that “we can not accept a world in which people are gassed on a terrible scale”, and that “we don’t want the world to be paralyzed”.  It is hard to take both of these men seriously in what they say because of their full on support for the death of innocent children in the womb through abortion.  Both of these men not only support the right to kill innocent children in the wombs of their mothers, but also advocate this “crime against conscience” and “crime against humanity”.  The little, innocent victims of abortion are even being killed “chemically” by such CONTRAceptives/abortificients such as the morning after pill, the IUD, the NuvaRing, and even high dosages of the birth control pill.  “Chemical warfare” against our own people has been happening for over 40 years now, and the current “leader” of our country has no problem with it, even adding insult to injury by asking God to bless one of the major suppliers of these chemicals used in the warfare against the innocent, in the organization known as Planned Parenthood.  My brothers and sisters, let us pray for our nation and its leaders.  Let us pray that we don’t need to go to war, that the peace of Christ reign in the hearts of all leaders throughout the world, and that we as a nation stop the genocide that is going on in our own country.  God bless!

    Patriarchate
    Aug 292013

    Beiruit (CNS)
    Syrian-born Melkite Catholic Patriarch Gregoire III Laham warned against armed intervention in his country, saying, “It has brought us to the tragedy we are now living in Syria.”
    Speaking to Catholic News Service by phone Aug. 27 from the patriarchal summer residence in Ain Traz, Lebanon, the patriarch said such a step “would be a tragedy, a tragedy, a tragedy — for the whole country and the whole Middle East.”
    “Enough with the intervention,” he said.
    “It is fueling hatred, fueling criminality, fueling inhumanity, fueling fundamentalism, terrorism — all these things are the fruit of intervention. Enough!”
    “Surely, it will spread like a world war,” he said.
    The patriarch lamented the U.S. decision to postpone again a meeting with Russia aimed at preparing for a peace conference on Syria.
    “The Holy Father was very clear on Aug. 25,” the patriarch said, referring to Pope Francis’ call for peace in Syria during the Sunday Angelus, when the pontiff said, “It is not clashes, but an ability to meet and to dialogue that offers prospects for a hope of resolving the problems.”
    “This is the real voice to be heard, and not the voice of weapons and interventions and of warships,” Patriarch Laham said.
    “Instead of trying to change the (Syrian) government, help the government to change. We are all for change. We are all for reforms. But not in this way, with blood.”
    The patriarch said external intervention “is destroying the whole sense of community, of friendship of love between peoples, of conviviality, of living together, Christians and Muslims.”
    “Why send weapons? Why send criminals?” the patriarch asked, noting that Syria is “now a place for every criminal in the world,” referring to fighters coming into Syria from other countries.
    “Why send people to fight? Why bring people from abroad? It is fueling hatred among the people.”
    The patriarch said the Syrian opposition had the right to “speak to the government and ask what they have to ask.”
    “But criminals coming from outside, why?”
    Patriarch Laham, who divides his time between Syria and the patriarchate in Lebanon, said he was happy to be among the people in Syria, but he stressed they are “living in fear, in a very uncertain situation.”
    “Every place in Damascus and in Syria is unsafe. There is chaos and insecurity in all places,” he said.
    On Aug. 26, the patriarch said, a mortar shell hit between the Melkite and the neighboring Armenian Orthodox patriarchates in Damascus. On the same day, another mortar shell destroyed the entrance of the Syrian Orthodox Patriarchate in the same neighborhood.
    “This is very harsh and very tragic,” he said.
    “We pray, we pray, because clearly the key to peace in the Middle East is related to a political and peaceful solution of the crisis in Syria. Thus, the key to the solution of the Palestinian conflict is now related to peace in Syria.
    “Peace in Syria and in Palestine is the key for peace in the Middle East and the whole world,”
