Sara Barton – Homeland Security?



The national conversation about security centers on concerns such as fighting terrorism, border control, better intelligence. We don’t like the feelings of fear we’ve felt, particularly since 9/11. Karl Barth said that security is a modern idol. Donald McCullough calls comfort a “Western deity.” Do we idolize security? Do we deify comfort? And, how does this affect how we worship and think about God? [more at www.wineskins.org ] Posted by Hello

  1. Why, Greg, we don’t have to worry about security any more! It’s taken care of! In his resignation letter, Attorney General John Ashcroft said it clearly: “The objective of securing the safety of Americans from crime and terror has been achieved.” Not just terror, but crime and terror.

    I know I feel a whole lot safer!

    Why, I might as well stop praying about it.

    But I’ll take a look at Sarah’s article just out of curiosity.

  2. Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature,
    nor do the children of men
    as a whole experience it.
    Avoiding danger is no safer
    in the long run than outright exposure.
    Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

  3. A good friend of mine is a retired Navy Seal demolition expert. He says that any time they choose 10 to 100 suicide bombers can board airplanes, go into the restroom, take C-4 plastics with detonater out of a tube concealed in their colon, and blow the airplanes in half at a given agreed time, all planes exploding within a few seconds of each other. These people are coming across the Mexican border having paid their way up thru Mexico similar to how the drug trafficers do.
