An Open Letter
from Rev. William Sinkford to Congress: Our Moral Balance
March 9, 2007
writes and votes upon our national budget, Rev. William Sinkford, looking at
the war in Iraq, asks, "What is our Moral Budget?"
The True Cost of War: A
Moral Balance Sheet
Rather than a surge of troops, we American taxpayers deserve a surge of truth. Because citizens of all faiths and
political persuasions are being asked to pay to prolong the violence, it is our
moral obligation to reckon the true cost of the war before we agree to continue
it. To give a true reckoning, we must honestly confront what we have done in
Iraq, and we also must acknowledge the many vital needs we have left unfunded
because we chose to put our money toward war. This "Moral Balance Sheet" looks
at those opportunity costs.
