What kind of people are these?

In Oklahoma, we have a bill before the legislature to have a horse slaughter industry. People on both sides of the debate say they love horses and its about caring for the horses. The debate is not what I am concerned about for this post.

Whether you like the idea of horse slaughter or not, this is America where in a democratic society a representative of the people can bring a bill forward for debate, and if more people are in favor of the bill than are against it…it passes…or the reverse will happen. Well, the author of this bill has been receiving threats via telephone, mail, and in social media. Let that thought sink-in for a moment. So-called caring persons, compassionate for the lives of horses, are now threatening the life of a human being. Does that makes sense to anyone? I’ll answer…NO, it doesn’t. It is twisted and ugly!

Our “social” media culture has in many ways become anti-social, ugly and twisted. The coarse language, the prevalent ugly hateful debate, and the speed that the poison travels is startling. What have we become? I believe that the more we remove Jesus, who taught us how to love one another, from our culture, the more selfish and hateful our society will become, soon laws won’t matter anymore and anarchy will prevail. The crazies will show compassion for an animal by calling for the killing of a person. What have we become?

Newtown, Connecticut's Bad Tree

The book, “A Different Kind of Tree”, is about growth, where you find nourishment, and what kind of fruit you bear. The destroyer of Newtown, Connecticut’s innocent was “a tree” with roots deep into rocky desert ground. Ground that will generally only form dry twisted dead trees. No one can kill 20  six to seven year old children without being completely dead inside. All the so-called experts will be giving us all the societal reasons for this mental illness, but I contend an evil “tree” as this boy, was grown. Grown in a land that has rejected Jesus Christ, a land that is selfish and unloving, a land of relativity where no absolutes exist…no right and no wrong. We have created a dry “land”, devoid of the nourishment of civility, of humility, of decency, of sensitivity, and of consideration of others. We now experience the most ugly vile words normalized in our everyday speech. Ugly words, ugly dress, ugly music, ugly video games, ugly thought…they all add up to ugly actions. It all adds up to a haze of disbelief of what life is, and an awful “reverse arrogance”…the evil in Newtown probably thought that no one loved him, no one understood him, nobody cared for him, and that the whole world was against him. We have seen these tragic events before. There is only one way out…better nourishment can be found…instead of kicking Jesus Christ out of our culture, we need to turn back toward Him. Then and only then will we learn how to properly love others again.
