OF DEEPEST RELIGIOUS
Specifically, Warriors For God.
(Or gods, godlets, godlings, goddesses, goblins and cute little things with wings and that go squeak when you step on them.)
I THINK WE CAN ACCEPT
as a ‘given’ that all warriors go to Valhalla—sword in hand or not; brand, breed, or ethnic derivation of course irrelevant. But~!
BUT WHAT ABOUT
Is a human guided missile also a candidate for Paradise? Will he get the Islamic allocation of 72 virgins and endless booze, for ever—or does breed/brand really matter?
WILL JEHOVAH/YHVH (aka God)
likewise actually recognise the well intentioned suicides as legitimate
busines battle practices?
Or will He wave a finger sadly in their faces and send ’em down below—
“Gimme your kamikaze yearning to die free …”
for being unsporting? Did they have any choice in the matter, all those heroic suicide pilots? I say not, given that a few minutes before each of them was born—or fourteen billion years, by some estimates—God knew exactly when and where He’d be greeting each of them again with a large bunch of flowers, rice cookies, cup of
mead saki and a ‘Bravo Zulu!’ scroll; perhaps, even, 72 handmaidens and endless wines.
So, herewith be mine question of the day:
DO KAMIKAZES GO TO HEAVEN?
—as a serious query it deserves a serious answer. If you can’t answer it … perhaps you might forward it to some of your favourite religiosi?
There’s real insight into human nature in this U-toobe. And some brilliant naval gunnery—those gunners were motivated. BZ.
This next one you may not want to watch—
—the damned racist bloody announcer calls them “Japs”. (Honestly, some people!)
And now, back to God … how say you, Sir? Do they get in, for being well intentioned; or not?
“Argus! Don’t ask ME, go ask their gods!”
(Oops … His Royal Godliness sounds a wee bit peeved …)
So: how say YOU?
