Lisa Grass' blog regarding the alliance between the militant leftist group Code Pink and the ostensibly Catholic group Pax Christi USA in protesting America's use of drone attacks in the war in Afghanistan. These groups have tried to bring attention to the "indiscriminate" use of lethal force against terrorists by staging mock drone attacks in several U.S. cities to draw public and media attention to their cause.
I am perplexed and a little taken aback that any "Catholic" group would join with Code Pink, since it is so outwardly hostile to the United States and the military that defends it. I can understand and appreciate people of good conscience protesting war, despite the fact that the absence of war does not typically denote peace and is frankly rather naive; however, aligning with a group that is often at odds with the basic tenets of our nation is frankly highly detrimental to their ultimate cause of that elusive peace.
Code Pink has intentionally been inflammatory in their language to the point of being absurd for a group that ostensibly wishes for peace. Their hateful speech towards the military and America in general can almost always be found at their rallies or demonstrations. Note the pictures in this posting as typical of the type of hateful rhetoric that these "peace activists" spew.
