My fellow blogger Art seems to have written a very well thought out blog, however, in addition to some very true points, his thesis was that peace is a luxury. I do not agree. Any time some one stands up for what they believe in, his or her cause becomes a way of living, NOT A LUXURY. Think back to the anti-war movement of the 1960's. Sure, some people probably joined the movement because of peer pressure, but surely Art is not suggesting that after all those protests and rallies where people were injured or killed, that set of beliefs was a LUXURY? I think Art made some statements that definately apply to our lives, however, we must remember that the "Institutional Church" of the time Art cited was made up of mostly racist bigots. I AM NOT TRYING TO START AN ARGUMENT OR BE DIFFICULT, I AM JUST STATING MY OPINION.
