Last night marked a place in time for America; but I’ll get around to that in a bit. The Grand Jury followed the law and decided there wasn’t sufficient (any) evidence to justify charging a Ferguson police officer with criminal charges because all the evidence established that he’d acted in self defense when he shot and killed a young man, a young man who had robbed and assaulted a business owner only minutes before, a large man sized youth who had attacked him and tried to take away his service pistol.
The news media, if they can still be called that after the way they’ve abused their privileged status and lost the trust of the American public…the news media has been building up for a race riot ever since the day of the shooting.
They painted the officer as a white hate mongering racist who shot a defenseless innocent boy simply because he was black. The only reason the cop shot a black kid was because white cops have always shot black kids; and on top of that, white cops don’t like having a black president; it’s the story to run with, and boy did they run with it.
Race pimps from around the country joined in building the bonfire pyramid; a chance to have a monumental burning down of the ‘old’ while ushering in the ‘new’. Social Justice would take the place of the rule of law and the undeserving would be rewarded for being undeserving as a means of righting that which had gone on from the beginning of history; isn’t that the definition of Social Justice?
Interestingly, while the scum of the earth was looting and burning down business after business in Ferguson, all in the name of justice…a message showed up on my Facebook page.
The instructions were to post a picture of the Lord’s House and then challenge anyone who hit the ‘like’ button to do the same. If we offset the negative with something positive then it will show that we have our priorities in the right place.
I was supposed to wait until the name of a specific temple was sent; but the idea of supporting a great idea wouldn’t wait, I posted a picture of the Houston Temple. Later, after receiving the ‘challenge’ I posted a picture of that temple as well.
This morning over 35 individuals from my ‘friends’ list had stopped by to check out the challenge. Before long Facebook could have quite a different feel to it; hundreds of folks posting pictures of the Lord’s House to offset the garbage being reported and over-reported from around the world.
As we go before our 'Grand Jury', what evidence will we supply to support an indictment? There will always be plenty of evil, enough to go around and then some. It will be up each of us to choose this day whom you will serve; but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
