Idiots to the left of us

I wasn’t going to blog Stephanie Salter’s SF Chronicle column titled W.W.J.D.? She means us to understand the title as What Would Jesus Do. Others have delivered responses as well but I, as is my wont lately, wrote her an email and here is the short and simple:

Ms. Salter,

You have got to be kidding with this column. It was a joke right? Turning the other cheek would be your answer to four downed airliners and a force of thousands that would be only too glad to add a lot more to that total?

I am surely against violence for violence’s sake but self-defense is quite a different story. And Stephanie, aren’t you glad that there were and are men and women willing to take up arms so that you can write such nonsense?
