    Martyrs choose principal—not death.
    They embrace lofty notion’s promise
    ignoring humanity’s banal threats
    to stand fast with dread consequence.

    Their lives are taken—not surrendered
    to vainglorious Theos' depraved sexuality,
    but canceled by stubborn disagreement
    and unripe civilization’s forced abortion.

    Martyrs stock no arsenals of destruction
    as mere and trivial weapons of myopic terror,
    rather their strengths lies in constitution,
    not explosives, nor in juvenile volatility.

    Their stature blooms from their character,
    which is rooted firmly in quiet revelation,
    unruffled courage, and reasoned commitment;
    not boisterous mobbism and unreasoning hate.

    I Think Martyrs R Getting a Bad Name

    A suicide bomber is a weapon--that's all--a weapon--and he is not even his own weapon--he is someone elses--Ra

    A suicide bomber is just a murderer who is too stupid to get out of the way.
