God, women and wars

Original post made by Ted Rudow III, MA, Palo Alto High School, on Feb 1, 2013

God, women and wars




Dear Editor: The Pentagon has officially removed the long-standing military ban on women in combat. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta formally announced the move Jan. 24 in Washington.

In being officially allowed to serve in combat roles, women will be afforded opportunities for medals of recognition as well as for advancement to positions they have been unable to pursue.

It illustrates the blatantly hypocritical policies of the U.S. and its allies. I don't believe in war. I don't believe in killing my fellow man. Violence breeds violence, and he or she who lives by the sword shall die by the sword. The true God is a good God who is kind and loving, concerned. God hates war and its rich perpetrators. In some ways, I'm a pacifist, because I believe that God can settle all wars.

Ted Rudow III,

Palo Alto
