I am old enough to remember the Vietnam war, when soldiers were openly punished by protestors. To add further insult, most of the soldiers of the Vietnam War were draftees and not there by choice. I think the attitude of the public has come a long way since then, even though that change may not be reflected in the actions of these religious fanatics.blade625CT said:I will never understand the mentality of people who want to punish the soldiers, for serving the very country they live in. If you are a soldier, you don't have the luxury of deciding where and when. You do what your country asks of you.
So many don't realize that, even if you don't support the war you still can, and should, support the troops.
Please note, this protesting group is a garden variety HATE GROUP. Religion is only a habitual activity, for many of us, it's motorcycling... or always stopping for a fellow rider in need... for the protesting people, their religion is based on hatred. Please don't lump people of faith like me, in with these wack jobs. They have a right to protest in this country... but you don't have the right to falsely proclaim, "Fire!" in a crowded theater. There's a balance there somewhere.DocMV said:Boy, got to hand it to you guys over there in the US, you sure do have some real wierdos..... (the church types, I mean, not the bikers).
