It’s September 16, 2021. Where are we? Who are we? Is there a we? People who rule our lives and fortunes daily call people who disagree with them every foul, malicious, hateful name in the book. Historians will take note. Our children already take note.
Our children sing music with lyrics that soothes the souls of rapists, racists, and insurrectionists. Our children play video games that praise blood and gore as fun. Our children become gang members and slaughter each other daily. Our children know they are not allowed to vote, but are allowed to participate in a no-questions-asked needle exchange. People who rule our lives and fortunes worked hard to achieve this, and call people who disagree every foul, malicious, hateful name in the book.
People who rules our lives and fortunes report the news to our children by prominently featuring photographs of barely-clad people and sagas of their sex and drug lives. By prominently featuring falsehoods and opinions clothed as news. By prominently quoting people who rule our lives and fortunes, when they call people who disagree with them every foul, malicious, hateful name in the book.
People who rule our lives and fortunes teach our children about the law by flaunting the law, enacting laws that explicitly do not apply to them, and by violating laws with the knowledge that they will not be held accountable. They do this not only furtively, but also openly and with bravado. They call people who disagree every foul, malicious, hateful name in the book.
Foul, malicious, hateful name-calling is not fertile ground for we. It poisons the possibility of we. We all agree is that there is no we. Not now. Will there ever be?
The Pope recently said “Abortion is more than an issue. Abortion is homicide … Those people who are not in the community cannot take Communion, because they are out of the community. It is not a punishment: Communion is linked to the community.” Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi say the Pope is wrong; they say they are entitled to take Communion, in spite of the fact that they use the power of their political offices to ardently advocate and legalize abortion at any time for any or no reason up to the instant of birth. Followers of Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi call followers of the Pope every foul, malicious, hateful name in the book.
If we existed, followers of Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi politely would present their explanation of why they think the Pope fails to understand Catholicism. If we existed, people who rule our lives and fortunes politely would present all their explanations, instead of calling people who disagree every foul, malicious, hateful name in the book.
May we all soon join hands in unity, and make this a lesson for our children.
