(Please don’t read if religious material and ideas offend you.  Come back later)

As most of you know already I’m a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons).  If you know anything about the LDS church you’ll know we have no paid clergy. Everything is done by members.  We serve in leadership positions and we teach.  I’ve taught………a lot.  I’ve spent 33 years teaching every age from 18 months to 99 years old.  My most challenging age has been the 14-18 year olds.  Not that they were bad to teach, some were just hard to reach.  One of the things I most wanted to teach them along with whatever Gospel topic assigned that week was the following:

Satan is real.  He’s not a boogey man made up to get little children to obey the rules.  He is a real entity, who moves through the world leaving misery and destruction in his wake.  Satan’s plan is not new, nor is it sophisticated.  He seeks to make all men miserable like unto himself. His plan from the beginning was to compel all mankind to return to the Father as long as he got all the glory. Nothing has changed except now he’s working for himself.  He seeks to frustrate the Plan of Salvation by deceiving and coercing man to reject God, and these days he’s doing a bang up job.  His minions and sycophants wander the earth sowing discord and frustration, hatred and intolerance far and wide.  He has over the course of human experience tried, so far unsuccessfully, to impact on the majority of people, through war, awful leaders and Sodom and Gomorrah’s.  Today his tactic is to focus on the destruction of the family.

It has been in the news lately but known by religious leaders for millenia that the family is the bed rock of society.  Not perceived families but real families.  Two adults of different genders, committed to raise children within the bounds of civilized behavior to create the new generation of people to then create the next generation.  What do we have now?  Half of the marriages today end in divorce (and yes I know sometimes that can’t be helped but living correct principles and not settling for someone who refuses to do  can so go a long way to helping that not happen).  This situation leaves the most vulnerable among us, children, in chaotic and precarious positions.  Stress and uncertainty, unhappiness and anger are the legacy of this.  These same children go on to make the same or similar decisions as their parents did, unless acted upon by a greater force.

In the last several years there have been studies reported on about the sad fate of most children raised by homosexual couples.  While the parents are surely not impeding their children’s happiness on purpose the very wrongness of the situation has an impact on them and their children and their children’s children.  Depression and unhappiness will not be destroyed by allow gender neutral marriage.  It is not a functional situation.  Children learn how to be men and women by watching their parents.  They can not learn from a man no matter how “female” he feels, how to be a woman or vise versa.  Each gender is given specific gifts, talents and responsibilities.  Without adoption and or massive medial assistance two people of the same gender will never produce offspring.  It is a fact of nature, not nurture.

Be not fooled. Satan desires to have you.  He will shift you like wheat and unlike our Heavenly Father he doesn’t love you.  As a matter of fact he hates you. You have a body, something his rebellion in the pre existence has denied him.  Know thy enemy. He knows you so be valiant.  You can overcome his machinations but only if you understand that he is  real. His evil is real. There is a difference between that which is right and that which is wrong and wickedness will never be happiness. Not in this world or in the other.

These are the most important things I have ever told my students and my children.  They are true whether you wish to believe them or not. They are a testimony to the grace and goodness of the God that grants me breath and to whom I owe all that I am and all that I have.

This testimony brought to you thanks in large part by facebook people who can’t seem to figure out the difference between being loved and being hated.  They in their very intolerance have become puppets in a war that has been waged since BEFORE the world began. One side promised eternal life the other eternal regret.  Doesn’t seem like a hard choice to me but than again I’m just a religious nut job who actually believes this stuff.  What a maroon, right?

Michael Moore says 90% of guns are owned by “scared” white people?  Really.  So, Michael you know that how?  Did you do a survey, did you call 90% of scared white people and ask them?  Let me guess you depended on a left wing, tin foil hat wearing, pollster with delusions of relevancy?  Or mayhaps you again did as you are wont to do and pulled it out of your………….ear?

Even better is the remainder of the quote:

“Did you realize that over 90% of the guns in this country are owned by white people in the suburbs and in rural areas? Ninety-percent of our guns are not owned by African-Americans, hispanics, minority groups, they’re owned by white people. Now are these white people so afraid of out in the suburbs? Are they thinking little red head, freckle-faced Jimmy down the street is going to, you know, kill them? Mug them? I don’t think so. Are they afraid the guy next door is gonna break in and steal their t.v.? No, because they know the guy next door makes $50-60,000 a year. So poverty and racism the answer is pretty much the same answer for a lot of our other problems. (MSNBC-Ed show)

Of course they’re not worried about that kid in their area.  They aren’t worried about their neighbors, they’re not even worried about a minority that might live down the street from them or go to school with their kids or work with them or their spouse.  They are however worried about people who think it’s perfectly OK to break into your house, steal your stuff, rape your wife, mother, daughter or female house pet.  They’re worried about people who think that because you work hard and you buy stuff and they sit around watching Jerry Springer and Jesse Jackson who tell them that you should “give ” them what you make because “they deserve it.”  The color of their skin is NEVER the issue here.  It’s not about race, it’s about criminals and what they’re willing to do to to get whatever it is they want.  It’s about animals who prey on the old, the young and the infirm.  It’s about the dregs of society.

Oh and where do criminals get their guns.  The vast majority of them don’t buy them at gun shows or through a vendor or in pawn shops or on-line, because they can not pass a background check.  They buy them from other criminals, who in come cases got them from our government (see Fast and Furious).  They steal them (they are criminals after all).

So what percent is that gun ownership? The leftover 10%, I don’t thinks so.  You should be glad so many “scared white people” have the guns that would find their way into the hands of even more criminals.  The black community would be extinct if any more guns made it into the hands of young black men who are responsible for 93% of the murders of members of the black community. With those kinds of numbers I wouldn’t be agitating for gun laws, I’d be agitating for sterilization.  At least until some reality can be injected into the horrific state of the black family.  Don’t get me wrong families all over, of all ethnic and racial stripe are endangered,  just not in as horrific a state as the African American community which finds in 2011 that

72 percent of all births to black women, 66 percent to American Indian or Alaskan native women, and 53 percent to Hispanic women occurred outside of marriage, compared with 29 percent for white women, and 17 percent for Asian or Pacific Islander women.

These “scared white people”  are also afraid of a government so far gone that it is trying to pass laws to take away the peoples right to defend themselves against those who would prey upon them.  That this same government, whose responsibility it is to protect its citizens from enemies foreign or “domestic,” seeks to take away a citizens right to free speech, free association, freedom to practice their religion without interference as well.  They are also afraid of a government that seeks to take away life, one of our elementary rights, from the unborn through abortion, the aged through rationed health care and anyone else, of any age, if they dare disagree with or protest the aims and actions of the government through drone strikes of American citizens on American soil (without a trial by jury as we have been promised in the Constitution).

Why are we afraid sir?  Because of these incidences:

The Wichita Massacre: Carr Brothers Prison Pictures, on Death Row… – Stormfront

Springfield murders

Chicago Murders

Baby shot in stroller

It took me about 5 minutes to goole these.  The first one I knew about because one of my family members lived in the apartment complex where  the brothers went to hide out. The data is out there and more than available.

Those of us who own firearms are tired of being afraid.  Tired of watching families mourn.  Tired of feeling unsafe no matter where we live or how we act.  Tired of watching a justice department and system and government that reward failure and laziness and punishes success and effort.  But more than that we are tired of people like you who have little grasp of reality, telling us how to live and what to do.

So I invite you to crawl back under the rock you slithered out from and let the rest of us protect the things that are so precious to us, our families.  We’ll protect them from the criminals that want to harm them and we’ll protect them from those who’d encroach on our liberties and freedoms.  It doesn’t take money to have integrity, nor does it take money to have character or a conscience.  It does however take effort. There are plenty of folks with lots of money who have no redeeming qualities at all.

Just look in the mirror. I dare you.

No one is willing to say it.

At least not enough of us are willing to say it.  I understand why.  In the toxic environment we have in this country today no one wants to be the “racist”.  No one wants to be accused of bigotry. No one wants to be offensive. So no one says anything.  The old adage holds true however “All that is needed for evil to flourish is for good men to do (say) nothing.  We have arrived at the line drawn in the sand.  If the “first African American President” had any honor or integrity he like Bill Cosby before him would be all over this like ugly on an ape, like white on rice or any other euphemism you can think of.

Let’s review the last few days shall we:

 

6-Month-Old Chicago Baby Shot 5 Times In Alleged Gang-Related …

Baby shot in face

Man beaten to death in Chicago 

School age children killed in Chicago

There are a few brave souls but they won’t  be allowed to make a difference.

USA Today on Where is the outrage at black on black violence?

Actual real government statistics  which I know people will ignore because why let actual numbers get in the way of a good victimization.

The sad and frightening case of Nkosi Thandiwe who said “I was trying to prove a point that Europeans had colonized the world, and as a result of that, we see a lot of evil today,” he said. “In terms of slavery, it was something that needed to be answered for. I was trying to spread the message of making white people mend.” So he shot three women, killed one, paralysed one and injured another who did nothing to him. Their crime, they were white.

So I’m going to say it.  These people black or white, red or yellow, green or polka dot are animals.  They should not be allowed in a civilized society.  Those who enable them, those who excuse them, those who create them and those who support them should also not be allowed to live in a civilized society.  There are plenty of empty islands in the south Pacific.  Send them there.  Give them a gun and a knife and let them shoot and kill each other until they are extinct.  That is what needs to be done.

Either you are willing to live within the rules of society or you are invited and then escorted somewhere they either like murders or they don’t give a flying fig. Here we should care. Instead of fighting over school choice, gun control and abortion, instead of worrying about Syria, Pakistan and Libya we should be finding and expunging the violent animals that infest our cities and communities. Those that prey on the young and the elderly and the naive.  Those that refuse to play by civilized rules and those who flaunt the law (yes I’m referring to illegal aliens who will never be law abiding citizens because there will always be some law that doesn’t apply to them-like driving drunk).  It is past time we took our country back and if that means every person wears a gun and knows how to hit the center of a target consistently then that is what we’ll have to do.  Either you want to live in a free country, with the opportunity to progress according to the effort you expend or you don’t.  If you don’t it’s time for you to go, on a permanent basis. Go find another jungle to hunt in.  Or one to be hunted in.  Such is the result of animalistic behavior.

We’re done with dog eat dog. We’d kind of like it to be do unto others as you’d have them do unto you.  Yes I know, that’s to Judeo Christian of me. I must be a bigot.
