ONWARD CHRISTIAN SOILDERS


I know this picture is mighty controversal to some Catholics and other Christians . But for me it fills me with pride that Catholic soldiers are going into battle with an symbol of their faith before them. I mean if you don't think the Blessed Mother and her Son is opposed to this war and for liberating the oppressed why not go into battle with the Rosary. Lets get some input from everyone? Is it inspiring to some? Do others think it portrays images of the crusades? Just curious. Comments welcome. By the way here is a link about volunteers making special war time rosary's for our troopsPosted by Hello

It's certainly an interesting one.

It does bring up connotations of the crusades and converting all those "crazy" muslims into good honest Christians. That's how they become free...

How do you know they're Catholic soldiers?

Christianity has as broad a spectrum as politics.

Never would have made that Crusades connection.

To me, it's a symbol of faith - not a faith that they are pushing upong the people they are fighting for, but their own faith to help them get through this ordeal.

Yep. Crusade images. To me, if it was something to get the soldiers through the ordeal, they'd be WEARING the cross. They'd keep it close. To display it as such shows a huge lack of respect for the people they are "liberating".

THIS PHOTO FILLS ME WITH RESPECT FOR THIS SOLDIER WHO IS NOT AFRAID TO SHOW HIS FAITH. THE CRUSADES IMAGE IS INTERESTING. MAYBE THIS WAR IS, WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, A DEMONSTRATION OF WHAT WE BELIEVE AS A COUNTRY. TO SOME PEOPLE, IT MAY BE OFFENSIVE. TO ME, IT IS POETRY.
