It’s been more than a month since I wrote the preceding post and I was truly not intending to ever blog again. I have felt for quite some time that the hubris of thinking my thoughts and opinions would make a rat’s haunch of difference had finally fallen like the turkeys on WKRP’s Thanksgiving episode. I still think that but occasionally I come across something so blindingly ridiculous, so morally bankrupt, so without any reasonable reality that I just can’t stand not to make a comment. So here it is for what it’s worth.
So why does God “allow” evil? Well for starters why should God give a rat’s haunch what happens to human beings. They have thrown Him out of their schools, their town halls, the federal government, parks, cemeteries, community centers, homes and in some cases churches. They take His name in vain almost every second, they damn people in His name, they spit on His commandments, they abuse His followers and they commit atrocities in His name without His authority. They have proven over and over again that God is only necessary when something awful happens, then we turn to Him, then He’s supposed to forget all the abuse and hate humans have thrown at Him. He’s supposed to overlook the total disregard and disgust He’s been held in. God is supposed to forgive us just because we are in trouble.
It doesn’t work like that, but trying to educate people whose only thought is “what’s in it for me”, is insane (doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different outcome). They don’t want to know God, they don’t want to follow God, they don’t want to understand God. It’s too much trouble, it’s too hard, it’s too restrictive, it’s too boring. I can bet you that the folks who lost loved one’s today would give a lot to spend some boring time with those they won’t see again in this life.
Of course there will be another round of “guns are evil” led by the criminal head of the justice department and his enabler. The fact is that you can’t legislate crazy. You can provide security for schools so that someone on site is registered and trained to carry a weapon. These nutcases and crazy people strike at schools precisely because they’re certain the children and teachers are sitting ducks. Guns aren’t allowed on the property so there is zero risk to them. They can perpetuate any atrocity they chose because it will take at least 5 min. to get the first responders on scene. If on the other hand these nutjobs were taken out before the first shot was fired that might make them think twice about attacking something we Americans are supposedly passionate about protecting. As I have always told my children “talk is cheap”. Once guns are banned the law abiding citizen will have NO protection. Criminals may as well put up open season posters with your wife, sister, younger brother, mother, father, children’s pictures on them.
As Charlton Heston famously said, “you can have my gun when you pry it from my cold dead fingers.” I have NO confidence in the federal government, and very little confidence in law enforcement. The justice department is a farce and the Attorney General is a joke. We stopped being a nation of laws when we surrendered to the “cult of celebrity” which brought us President Bengahizi and Uncle JoJo the dog faced idiot. But I draw the line at blaming God for our current issues. We made them ourselves, we need to own that.
