Last night at a school in Uvalde, Texas, they were doing onsite DNA swabs to parents in hope of matching the DNA with a dead child.
Gunshots do terrible things to a child’s body…
Reporters watching from a distance would hear the screams of the families when a match was made.
The first pictures of the victims are coming out and they look like the pictures of children sitting on my desk and for a moment I can’t breathe.
The usual suspects representing Jesus and the Christian faith were quoted in the press…they are usually calling for some action to be taken against those they are angry with, but tonight they offered up recycled thoughts and prayers from the last massacre.
They invited people to come to Jesus for comfort…hoping that those seeking comfort hadn’t read the report on abuse in the Southern Baptist Convention…
Every time something horrific happens we are deluged with moronic posts declaring it a “sign of the times”…19 slaughtered children deserve to be seen as more than a damn prophecy update…it is a sign of our sickness, not the Second Coming.
Disgraced former Fox talking head Bill O’Reilly said after another mass killing that “massacres are the price of freedom”.
We are the freest country in the world then, as we lead it in massacres…free indeed…
We have aligned ourselves into tribes and use all means available to foster hate against the other tribes.
A prominent congressman quickly identified the shooter as a “transsexual leftist illegal alien.”… the murderer was none of the above, but one should never waste an opportunity to incite rage in ones constituents against your enemies.
Our news channels of choice become wealthy keeping us angry and don’t mind if we let off a little of the steam they created by killing a couple dozen of the neighbor kids.
That rage from the daily news programs is baptized on Sunday in churches all over America.
Come to Jesus, but bring your voter ID card…
Come to Jesus, but be careful who you leave your children with…
There are no solutions to this plague as we are addicted to rage and allergic to compromise for the common good as we would be defiled with the filth of other tribes in the process.
So we will keep on offering thoughts and prayers… for the dead and for our living children… and for the next trip to the grocery store…prayers that we won’t be the next victims of our lust for anger and the blood of our neighbor.
Come to Jesus, indeed…you will know Him by His tears.
