Holy Week?

As Easter morning, the most holy time for the Christian church approaches, it strikes me as ironic that the U.S., arguably the most Christian nation on earth with a Christian president elected by Christians, dropped somewhere between $60 million and $400 million of bombs and missiles on two different countries this week (depending on whose numbers you use).

According to cost estimates from Feed the Children, it costs about $1.00/day to feed a child in Africa. That means the money the U.S. military spent bombing Afghanistan and Syria this Holy Week could have fed between 164,000 and 1.1 million African children for a year.

On this Easter, I have to ask Christians, “What do you think Jesus would have done?”
