You know this stinks. You can disagree with the war, I do. But there is no need to disrespect our troops. The troops don't choose what wars they are going to fight, they volunteer to go where we send them through the choices of our elected leaders. If the codepink people have a problem with the war, then by all means protest our idiot politicians in washington. But they need to leave our soldiers the hell alone.

We worship the God in many asspects, one of them is as the warrior. Yet we disrespect the guys who have been called to be warriors? We and everyother nation have the responcibility to have a standing army ready to protect our nation and our allies. If bad politicians choose to send them somewhere we don't want them to go, why attack the soldiers? We choose to elect the people who sent them on the mission that they are on, they are sacraficing for this country and we treat them like crap in return.

I'm tired of people disrespect the troops, dis the politicians and leave our soldiers alone. The war wasn't something that they started it was started in Washington, and it will be finished in washington.

This is a mess in my opinion. They're making a mockery of my faith with these protests. They add more fire to the sterotype behind witchcraft and paganism. A good chunk of the country is laughing at what they are doing. It will only serve as an example to the people who call us cooks and freaks. This sort of negative energy will solve nothing.

More and more I'm finding things that drive me away from my faith. From stuff like this to groups of all-female covens (I'm a male) who all but completely ignore the Father in all aspects of their lives. I always hear "Godess", never "Gods"

Although I am not a Wiccan, I have to admit that there is a growing "female chauvinistic" mindset in most if not all religions outside of Islam.

For example, most churches will no doubt have sermons on Mother's Day that will go beyond the simple celebration of motherhood -- they'll say that women are the backbone of the church. That makes many men feel like chopped liver, believe me.(Whatever happened to Christ being the cornerstone; the "backbone" if you will, of the church?)

I welcome many women to comment on this. Equality of the sexes is one thing, but exchanging one form of chauvinism for another is absurd and counter-productive!

I know this is off-topic, but you brought up something that sent up a red flag, and I had to vent.

I agree, equality should be just that. It is not just a balance between male and female either, we need to understand and respect the balance that exists between life and death, light and dark, etc. All aspects are needed to create a harmonious world.

I'm DONE with all these Anti American Liberals & Code Pink. I'm a wounded Marine and as soon as I recoup and finish my tour and return to the States, myself and hundreds of others are going after these vermin as a private citizens. 29 years I have Protected and Served our great Country I love and Iím NOT going to sit back any longer and allow these maggots to get away with what they do to us. We have kicked the enemies Ass in Iraq and Afghanistan and itís now time to come home and do the same to the enemy within like Code Pink and the Anti American Liberals who bad mouth all of us.
You bitches have disrupted my best friends babies Christening and even threw blood at us when we were in uniform. If it werenít for the Police holding us back and helping us control our anger, I would have pummeled you into the blacktop until you were really pink, especially the leader.
So, if all of you Americans want to help us solders out, perhaps all of YOU will take action against these pieces of crap and take care of business HERE while we are away taking care of business protecting YOU and our families.
THERE WILL BE AN ASS KICKING IN HUGE PROPORTIONS I PROMISESÖ ARRESTS WILL BE MADE FOR BEATING THE LIVING CRAP OUT OF THEM!!! I HOPE the capture this on TV LIVE because we Solders have HAD IT and WE WILL respond!!!! And for those that donít believe us, wait and see! We Solders are Americas Clearing house and we will rid this country of Anti American Enemies in such force that the cowards will run to Candia like the last time.

I most definitely feel you there brother. These code pink vermin are so out of line. And the vast majority of Americans see this. Probably why their numbers continue to dwindle. I hold an HIV virus to a higher esteem than them.

Exactly! I'm against the whole war thing as well, but still, thanks to you guys and gals over there fighting. I only hope they bring you all back soon. The news lately has gone to a civil war there, and it's really none of our business to be there. Lets bring most of the troops home to protect OUR soil.
As an ex-WAVE...I salute you. Thanks for your sacrifice, even if it's unappreciated by some.

If women in pink decide to burn a candle, to end the slaughter, and what else could it posibly be called? Win loose or draw, young people are indeed being slaughtered. Of course we only think on our side. A little over 4000 dead. If you are not American, as blessed as you are, there are over 300 thousand Iraqi dead. Still you are patriotic to consider dead humans without a thought of nationalism. The Pentagon considers 4000 Americans dead compared to plus 300 thousand Iraqis....America is winning.

Karma can be such an ugly thing. Torture, secret prisons throughout Europe, Just the denial of such ugliness.

This is not a good day to be American.

From CodePink website; see http://www.codepink4peace.org/article.php... :
CODEPINK is a women-initiated grassroots peace and social justice movement working to end the war in Iraq, stop new wars, and redirect our resources into healthcare, education and other life-affirming activities. We reject the Bush administration's fear-based politics that justify violence, and instead calls for policies based on compassion, kindness and a commitment to international law. With an emphasis on joy and humor, CODEPINK women and men seek to activate, amplify and inspire a community of peacemakers through creative campaigns and a commitment to non-violence. <p>
