Definitions

While political positions are a normal occurrence at liberal Christian and Emergent Church blogs, here at Jazzycat we refrain from getting into that fray. However, I would like to give a few definitions without comment:

treason
……….a person who commits treason by betraying his or her country.
betray…….. To give aid or information to an enemy of; commit treason against: betray one's country.
aid…….. to give help or assistance.

Feel free to connect the dots and come to your own conclusion.

I had to kick myself that I didn't contact you before we drove through Jackson yesterday! I would have loved to get together with you. Maybe it's best though . . . I am allergic to cats after all.

Jonathan,
I wish you would have. We only live one mile from I-20 and Jazzy would have run to the bedroom and hidden under the bed. Do let me know next time you are through.

Connect dots? Never was good at that.

Mark,
I'll bet you are to. However, I believe it is a tremendous national problem. Back in WWII a more unified nation would have connected them and responded accordingly.......

I think I know what you're saying.

There will always be the Benedict Arnold's, and the Patrick Henry's, and even the Nathan Hale's.

You're going to have to dumb it down a notch (or two or five) for me.

Susan,
Has anyone (leaders in particular) given aid and comfort to jihadists in Iraq and elsewhere? If so this meets the definition of treason. I think there are some who have done this on a regular basis and engaged in outright lies in doing so. It certainly wouldn't have been tolerated in WWII because the news media would have exposed it for what it is.

I think there are leaders committing treason, that claim to be offended if you question their patriotism. I am questioning more than their patriotism, I am saying they are committing treason. These people are so far past the line of being responsible and honorable that it is absurd.

I just needed to vent about it.....
