This is an opinion piece about Quakers, amongst other groups, being spied on for possible terrorist activities by the Pentagon.
Quakers are pacifists, not terrorists. Just because one, or a group, is anti-violence/anti-war, does not mean they themselves will be resorting to violence. There may be groups who are opposed to the wars that ARE violent. Quakers are not one of them.
They should have never been spyed on in the first place. To all those who are angsty about it being a Christian nation, and that being a problem? Just look. The Christians are turning on their own. It’s not even a matter of being Christian, anymore, you have to be the Right Kind. Quaker ain’t it, apparently. Not that I am suprised, I knew they were politicially active getting into it — they have been since day one…but you’d think common sense would play a small part in who the government decides to spy on of its own people. What a waste of time and money when they do things like this. How does it make me feel safer knowing they seem so clueless about who they are spying on?
