No Atheists
In A Foxhole
ā€œWhen you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldierā€

ā€œWe are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.ā€

ā€œIt is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.ā€

ā€œOld soldiers never die; they just fade away.

ā€œThe soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.ā€

ā€œMay God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .ā€
ā€œThe object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

ā€œNobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

ā€œFixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
ā€œIt is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God


Which must always come to pass

Photobucket
He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?


Have you always turned the other cheek?


To My Church have you been true?"


"No, Lord, I guess I ain't


Because those of us who carry guns


Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around


Except to calm their fears.


If you've a place for me here,


Lord, It needn't be so grand,


I never expected or had too much,


But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

Erdogan invites Pope Francis to opening of Hagia Sophia as a mosque
Friday, July 24, 2020
Rudderless Church
Jihad Watch : Will his Islamic ā€œfriendsā€ allow him to decline? Will he even wish to decline? More comments from me on this below.  ā€œHagia Sophia: Popeā€™s Interfaith Time Bomb,ā€ by Jules Gomes, ChurchMilitant.com, July 22, 2020:
ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) ā€“ Greeceā€™s president is urging Pope Francis to condemn the Islamic takeover of Hagia Sophia a day after Turkeyā€™s radical Islamic president made a counteroffer inviting the pontiff to attend the Byzantine basilicaā€™s reopening as a mosque on July 24.
Turkish presidential spokesman İbrahim Kalın revealed Sunday that Pope Francis was among the guests invited to attend the reversion of Hagia Sophia to its status as a mosque conquered by Sultan Mehmet II in 1453.
Greeceā€™s president Katerina Sakellaropoulou, however, phoned the pontiff Monday, calling for the move to be ā€œexplicitly and unequivocally condemned.ā€ The progressive judge, known for her leftwing positions on ecology and same-sex unions, asked Francis to help her raise international support on revoking Turkeyā€™s decision.
ā€œI asked @Pontifex to use his influence to raise the awareness of the international community about the conversion of #HagiaSophia into a mosque. I stressed that this decision by Turkey undermines the foundations of tolerance and deepens the rift between cultures and religions,ā€ 62-year-old Sakellaropoulou tweeted.
ā€œPope Francis is now caught in a massive dilemma of his own making,ā€ distinguished Islamic historian Robert Spencer told Church Militant. ā€œHe has for the entire span of his pontificate assiduously courted the goodwill of Muslims, and Muslim leaders have praised him for his defense of Islam.ā€
ā€œSo itā€™s entirely reasonable for President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan to invite him and think he will be delighted to attend and serve as the Turkish presidentā€™s trophy of the surrender and submission of Christianity,ā€ Spencer pointed out.
Pope Francis is now caught in a massive dilemma of his own making.Tweet  Spencer, author of the bestselling The History of Jihad: From Muhammad to ISIS, described the trap Francis had created for himself:
If Pope Francis does attend, however, he will insult and offend millions of Christians, Catholic and non-Catholic who wonder why he hasnā€™t stood up for Christianity the way he has for Islam and why he would attend a ceremony that commemorates what Erdoğan believes is the triumph of Islam over Christianity and its superiority to Christianity.
ā€œIf Francis doesnā€™t go, he risks offending his Muslim friends and supporters. If he does go, he risks offending Christians worldwide. There is no pleasing everyone,ā€ Spencer observed.
Spencer, director of Jihad Watch and Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, also noted that the pontiffā€™s ā€œHuman Fraternity declaration with the Grand Sheikh of al-Azhar has not brought about harmony between the two religions, nor will it ā€” and now he is caught between reality and the bland fictions he has propagated about Islam being peaceful.ā€
Meanwhile, Greeceā€™s president is slamming ā€œthe decision of the Turkish leadership to turn Hagia Sophia into a mosqueā€ as ā€œa profoundly provocative act against the international community.ā€
ā€œIt brutally insults historical memory, undermines the value of tolerance, and poisons Turkeyā€™s relations with the entire civilized world,ā€ she fumed. Spencer told Church Militant he was expecting Francis ā€œto ignore the Greek presidentā€™s appeal.ā€ ā€œIf the pope does answer, Iā€™d expect he will say nothing about Hagia Sophia and instead enlarge upon how different faith traditions have to have mutual respect and engage in dialogue,ā€ Spencer remarked. 
The injunction to protect churches applies only to dhimmis ā€” those who have surrendered to Islam, are subject to its rules and paying the jizya tax to their Muslim overlordsā€¦.
