So let us consider for a moment the What if. If Kokura been the target it would have been equally an immoral and godless act which the Catholic Church would have condemned and which would have brought shame on the glorious name of the USA.
Actually, I heard it in interviews of two Enola Gay crewmen describing the flight.
And I disagree with my church on this one.Given all the facts and circumstances it was a more moral choice than not dropping it.
The only shame attached to it, is in the minds of those
who lack the will to survive.
I feel no shame about it, but a certain pride,
and infinite gratitude that because of it's use,
my father survived the war.
The muslims have learned no lesson from this, but they should!
