God's intent, and what man does with it, are two completely different things. God creates out of Love, Loving every man and woman infinitely; therefore, God creates with the intent of sharing His Trinitarian Life equally with each and every human person, forever. Humanity, man and woman, moreover, co-creates in obedience, and procreates in participation with God's Creative Love. Sadly, man's creative intent is not so egalitarian as the Lord's. Humanity is one big, and continuous, cesspool of prejudice and persecution. The sad truth is that in the 'land of the free and the home of the brave,' revenge and retribution are the driving forces of the popular American culture.
Therefore, all men are not created equal when...
Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman entangled themselves in a foolish game of poor choices. One man died. The other man became the pioneer of the new 'white' hispanic American. Tragedy, without provable racism, became the poster-child for racial retribution and revenge. It has signaled a new direction in America, fueled by the spirit of racial retribution, teamed with a media so very eager to please the race baiting society.
Instead of choosing forgiveness like MLK Jr., America has just flipped the coin and made 'white' the new 'black.'
'Shorty' was a decorated war hero. He was also almost 90 years old. Two young black men beat him to death in a merciless, vile, and cowardly fashion. Now, truth be told, there are white thugs just as cowardly as these two boys. But, honestly, if two white teenage boys beat a 90 year old black war-veteran to death, there would be riots in the streets, cities on fire, a President irate, and a media fueled for revenge.
Three black teenagers beat up a white boy, two years younger, breaking his arm, while seeking revenge on a school bus because the white boy ratting them out for soliciting drugs. Meanwhile, the media remained eerily silent. When the media finally popped its cowardly head up for air, all it could offer was weak denials of any racial components to this attack. Once again we must ask, what if these three boys were white and the younger boy was black? Al Sharpton would have broken the land-speed record getting to the location of this crime with rocket-fueled-animosity to spare!
Two black boys and a white boy--Barack Obama had a black dad and a white mom and he's black; the 'white boy' had a black dad and a white mom and he's white--are bored. So what do they do? They chase down a jogger and shoot him in the back! One black youth 'tweeted'' his hatred for the white race and displayed gang affiliation on his Facebook page. But Eric Holder and Barack Obama hold no sympathy for the Australian born victim. They see no racial animosity. Neither does the media.
Am I missing something here?
And that is why, in America, sadly, 50 years after Martin Luther King Jr's timeless speech, all things remain the same, while all men remain in a state of inequality. May God forgive us for distorting his intent.
