Hate the war, love the warrior
I saw Rosie O'Donnell on Windy City Live yesterday morning. She is gay and has 4 adopted children. One has chosen to go into the military. She is well-known to be anti-war, so the host asked her if she had a problem with her son choosing the military.
It struck me as the same reasonable logic we use about sinners in general and homosexuals in particular. Hate the sin, but love the sinner. She uses the same argument for her son and the military but, I suspect, would take offense if it were applied to her as a homosexual.
I thought, "what a bunch of mental gymnastics she has to go through to hate war but love warriors."
