Wel, Ms. Smarty Pants Theologian, sacrifice does mean to make sacred, so...

Yes, indeed. Holding up the chance to support dad and play a bit of golf -- away from their families -- is every bit as much a sacrifice as American soldiers being separated from their families for 15 months at a stretch, in a hell-zone... repeatedly. If you're a Republican, I guess.

Talk about your overblown rhetoric. "Sacrifice"? Gag.
