Duke in Iraq – July 23

July 23rd, 2005 · 2 Comments

Great thoughts on freedom, from Thoughts from the Cradle:

Last night as I flew over Baghdad I could see where in the middle of the city the largest Mosque in the world is being constructed. This thing is huge. It looks like 6 large mosques surrounding a huge Mosque, but it is just one. Seeing this brings thoughts of freedom and democracy to mind.

Freedom for Iraq is what we are saying we are here for. People both here and at home often ask what are we really doing here and is what we are doing worth the lives it is costing both us and Iraq? I think this is a very good question.

    Amen. Beautifully written, this is amazing. I agree completley with what you have said and I can think of no way to articulate my feelings on Iraq and Christianity more eloquently then you have just done. Keep up the great work. Amazing post.

    God Bless
