5 Responses to Darfur: Will We Act to Stop the Genocide?

    I guess the problem would be that if one votes for the Democrates, they are voting for a party that supports the genocide of millions of unborn in your own country. I think, from what I know of US politics, you would have a much greater chance of success calling for the Republicans to seek to intervene in Darfur.

    Agreed. I’m certainly not advocating support for the democratic party. I have heard, however, many claim that evangelicals are being used by the republicans. I don’t think that’s true. . . at least, I hope it’s not. And I hope that evangelicals care more about people being killed in Darfur than they do about staying on the good side of the republicans. . .

    Amen to that. As a Canadian my outside view is that there is a real danger that the Republicans are equated with Christian. While they are preferable to the Democrates, they need to be pushed by Christians to do something in Sudan.

    Last night my wife and I saw the movie “Crash” and today I see the horrible pictures of the Genocide in Africa. Today I am a bit humbled by how great we have it here in the united states. Seeing evil like this only draws me closer to Him and reminds me of how Holy he is. Thanks for sharing.

    Jim,

    Kudos to you for raising this issue. The failure to intervene in Darfur raises real issues about the Western commitment to moral foreign policy. If there ever were a case for international military intervention, this is it. I think the moral case for forcible regime change in the Sudan via military intervention is at least as strong as the one for the same in Iraq; it is certainly stronger than the case made in Panama in the 1989 (?).

    Miles
