~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
US PRESIDENT SENDS HIS SON TO LIVE AMONG THE TERRORISTS.
An exclusive interview with the President of the USA - A Parable
Mr. President, is it true that you will send your son to live for a time with the terrorists in Afghanistan?
Yes, that is correct.
You mean that after the destruction leveled on New York City and Washington during the last couple of weeks, you are sending your son to live with the people who did this to you?
Yes, that is correct.
I want my son to show the terrorists and the people connected with Bin Laden that I love them in spite of what they have done. I want my son to teach them the principles upon which the USA was founded: freedom. I want my son to teach the followers of Bin Laden a better way of life: a life of love and service to their fellow man, a life of peace and joy, a life of freedom.
Aren't you taking a big risk in sending your son to these people?
Yes, I am.
Will you have any contact with your son while he is living amongst the terrorists?
Yes, I will have a hidden camera through which I can view the events taking place. I have also set up a system of communication whereby my son can talk to me and I can talk to him.
~~~ SOME YEARS LATER ~~~
Well, Mr. President, how is your son being received by the terrorists?
President: He has a small following but he is meeting with much rejection and scorn. Most people do not believe that he is my son.
Since most people do not believe him, are you going to call your son home?
Not yet, he still has more work to do.
~~~ ANOTHER YEAR LATER ~~~
I see from the camera footage that your son is really having a hard time in Afghanistan. The leaders have been plotting his death for some time now. His situation is precarious. Are you going to deliver your son and release him from his mission?
No, I am not.
Why? I do not understand.
In order for the followers of Bin Laden to gain their freedom, my son will have to die.
To die? Your son? You would sacrifice your son for those no-good, hate filled, sin scared terrorists? I really don't understand this, Sir.
No, I don't suppose you do. Let me try to explain. The only way for the people of Afghanistan to really see how evil Bin Laden is and how far he will go in his fight to retain control of Afghanistan, my son must die. It is the only way. His death will free all of my son's followers from the tyranny of Bin Laden and will also keep the other countries safe from his infiltration. Although it breaks my heart to watch what is happening to my son, it is the only way.
Are you telling me that you knew Bin Laden would have his followers kill your son even before you sent him to Afghanistan?
Yes, both my son and I knew the price before he left the USA.
How could you allow this? Why? Why would you do this?
Because of love, a love that gives complete freedom to choose. It is all because of love.
Thanking God for His mercy,
