I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday. If you’re like me and my family you may be on your way to or coming back from church.
This is the time of week many Christians set aside to reflect and spend a moment with God.
We all have a heavy heart this week after the senseless tragedy and shootings in California. After first hearing about this I spent some time in thought and offered up a prayer to the victims and their families.
I have always grown up knowing the power of prayer. It’s capable of producing miracles, and even the ones that are not directly answered by God can help bring a little peace to those who are suffering.
Apparently some “journalists” in the left wing media do not agree with me. This past Thursday the NY Daily News featured one of the most vial and disgusting headlines I’ve ever seen.
If you haven’t seen it I’ve included it below, but be prepared to be deeply offended.
This is offensive and disgusting on so many levels. For starters, prayer is not exclusively a Christian practice. It is one the most universally common practices of people of all faiths.
To call out these Republicans for offering up prayers to the victims is beyond disgusting. I’m 100% certain that people from all walks of life and political affiliation prayed for these victims. In a truly divisive world it’s something that unites us.
If there are people who believe that stricter gun laws will end tragedies like this, then go ahead and make that argument. I may not agree with you, but there are parts to that argument I can understand. Perhaps there is a middle ground that can help REDUCE gun violence.
But if you believe stricter gun laws or even banning guns all together are going to stop crazy people, criminals, and terrorists from committing horrible acts like this you’re being incredibly naive.
Regardless of where you stand on the gun argument those who are coming out and mocking God, prayer, and Christianity, now that is truly sickening.
All I can do is pray for you, and hope you find peace with God.
I’m sorry for sharing this upsetting story with you on a Sunday, but it was something I really needed to get off my chest.
