Charleston ….. A Day Of Mourning

image

I’ve plenty to say about this event.  But, not today.  Perhaps, after the people have buried their loved ones.  I can only express my heartache, and poorly so. 

I’ll never understand madness such as this.  I don’t think anyone ever truly can.  We lost brothers and sisters in Christ.  Racial animus is heightened.  And, the sanctuary of a church was most violently violated.  

One day, we’ll have a world which is full of people identifying as people, rather than identifying people as a race or identifying themselves as part of a race or ethnic group.  We may have to get to the other side before we get there, but, we will get there.

      Only if and when we mix enough that there are no discernible visible differences. Biology might do it. Human consciousness won’t.

      Several thousand years.

        But even then, we’ll probably find a reason to hate each other.

        “Only if and when we mix enough that there are no discernible visible differences. Biology might do it.”

        No; recessive genes. You can have all identically tanned half bloods and the next generation will have all kinds of shades again. Brazilians, where mixing is common, have a saying, the worst enemy of a negro is his white grandchild.

          But less and less common. Visual differences as the exception, not the rule. Sure, you’ll still get an albino alligator now and then.

    Seconded.

    I am sad that my brothers and sisters in Christ were exercising the commandment “love your neighbour” only to have their neighbor shoot them dead. But as Jesus said:

    “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

    I do hope that Mr Roof, if he is the guy who did it, as seems to be the case, repents of his sins in the time before they chair him. I hope in Christ likewise that I will meet these my brothers and sisters in heaven, when the time comes. It would be a privilege to meet the people who prayed for an hour with the person who murdered them. That is as Christ-like as you can be on this Earth, in my opinion.

    Roof had been arrested for some drug charges. So, damn potheads. Let’s ban pot.

    Dana Loesch literally wrote the book on American gun ownership rights, and dismantles a libtard who thinks guns are the problem…

    Libtards really do not understand guns, or legal gun owners..
