It is time for Americans to get a world perspective.  There is a war to fight.  And it is not waged with guns and in violence.  It is a war of freedom against tyranny.  It is a war of transparency against suppression.   It is a war of dialogue and debate against apathy, mindless acceptance, and group think.  You can love your country and express dissent.  You can love your faith and question some of its tenets.   Your faith and your country should be able to withstand the “Why?” questions.  It is part of being a whole human being to ask questions, to want answers, to seek truth.  To speak and to listen.
