  •  I didn't bring in "gun fetishists" here.... (0+ / 0-)

    but that phrasing struck me as unneccessarily hostile and trying to ring-in an off-topic buzzword for some sort of points.

    But if you see it as appropriate and courteous, more power to you.

    •  We live in a world today (2+ / 0-)

      ...that includes "Men of God" who would have beseeched these four wonderful individuals to spend their final moments of mortality praying for the deaths of everyone on that submarine.  The prior war was rife with "holy men" urging their fellow countrymen to go forth with God's blessing and wipe the filthy so-and-sos out.  Some even used their appointments to encourage taking the slaughter beyond the trenches and into the cities, wiping out all --- men, women, and children.

      If we do not want that kind of world, then we must push back against it at every conceivable opportunity.  I see the phrase "gun fetishists" as being a direct shot-across-the-bow leveled at all "false men of a false god, and their followers."  As such, I see it as wholly appropriate when used to honor the men my family has always referred to as "the Four Horsemen of the Dorchester."

      Proponents of gun violence own guns. Opponents of gun violence do not own guns. What part of this do you not understand?

      •  I saw no connection to any "holy men" (0+ / 0-)

        with the phrase "gun fetishists." I just saw an attempt to derail a diary. I'm going to stop helping it work, now.
