1. In college I bought a T-shirt from the student Islamic
association that protested the ethnic cleansing going on in Bosnia
. I wore it at a bash
and a guy I thought was my friend
and his wife asked why I was wearing that shirt because the genocide
victims "weren't Christian
". I replied that the first Holocaust
took the lives of 6 million Jew
s (also not Christians) and in addition 5 million people of OTHER categories also were killed. I told them that I don't give a flying foo-foo who the Yugoslavia
victims are. I said I don't care if it's Buddhist
s being exterminated. I don't care if atheist
s are being slaughtered. I said when a category of people are being rape
d, forcibly driven out, and penned up in death camps to be off
ed then the "Christian thing to do" is to raise awareness, protest it and stop it. If we just stand and stare then the next victims could be US.
They just looked at me with a stare like 2 cows watching a passing train.
