True Witness

Recently a decade long situation of hazing and intimidation within a local organization came to light. While most people are disgusted and angry, there are a few who defend the employees and attest to their good character. The incidents revealed in a court document was reported on by three news media outlets, all of whom had the same basic story. However, one woman on social media protested, “Don’t believe all that you read.” On the religious landscape we hear something similar when people want to negate the Word of God. The Gospels, written by four different men, testify that Jesus is the Son of God and yet those who are anti-Christ would tell us not to believe everything we read. “A truthful witness gives honest testimony, but a false witness tells lies” (Proverbs 12:17 NIV).

Gail;

-----Liars are not perfectionists, at least not the moronic ones. They know a certain percentage of people will always see through their boloney. They don’t care about those people. Their focus is on those who accept information on the emotional basis rather than the logical basis. Every one else who sees through them will do little damage to their efforts, as long as enough suckers exist in the right places to support boloney in front of cameras.
-----Hearing about this guy reminded me of my childhood days. I grew up in the country on a farm with other children of farmers in the country. We played rough. Our humor was course. We teased relentlessly, and we were teased relentlessly. We took it in stride. It wasn’t good, but it was not the cause for horror this event seems to be.
-----Here is some cause for horror, all foisted upon us by precious bully tactics blessed but covert: One ethnic group exacting the powers of government and social shaming upon another ethnic group to its own advantage. Lackadaisical people feasting at tables set with goods taken by the government from principled, hard working folks. The d├ęcor and objects of affection embedded in centuries of culture knocked down, drug out, and broken to pieces by cultural transformers. Cultural transformers inviting marauding hordes of lice and disease ridden vagrants to pour into our country while leveraging for a similar flood of religiously hostile people bent upon annihilating everyone who does not worship whom they worship.
-----And we’re all aflutter in our cages over a couple poopy sandwiches and a few homemade, flash-bang devices. Sure, his was not proper behavior. But after the fog of our moral diversion has cleared, bowing to Allah or loosing our heads should clear up the bad memories of our former rough play. As long as boloney is going to be boloney, I think it is time a few rough players get a chance to serve their wares upon the horrors now far too long praised by liars occupying influential places.

Love you all,
