I thought I would check the “News” after a quiet week of seclusion. First, I saw an article that described a group that went to Louisville, not to riot, but to defend private property from anarchists destruction. This article presented these people as illegal, racist bigots. It promoted the rioters as though there was a right to destroy personal property. With no evidence of racial bias or illegal purpose this group was condemned while Black Lives Matter was praised. The next article was from Rome, Italy, where an “extreme group” of Catholic women were creating graveyards of aborted babies. They got written permissions from the mothers and graveyards of the aborted were popping up all around Rome. The focus of the story was the tragedy this created for the women who aborted their baby. The author stated that the privacy of these women had been violated, by these insensitive radical Catholic women, but no mention was made of the innocent babies who were killed in mass, like victims of war crime.
Later, my grandson asked about my bees, “Beekeeping is like politics.” I said. “How is that,” he replied. “Well, it depends on who you talk to”, I answered. The political news is so bent that no outrage or injustice in a true historical or factual sense can be accepted, everything of the new Fascist agenda must be continually slathered with distortions to prop up the charade. People who defend the innocent are accused of racism, insensitivity or worse. Aborted babies do not deserve a decent burial or marker to identify the existence of their once beating heart. Since George Floyd was killed there have been hundreds of police officers wounded, fifty-four murdered, and several assassinated in cold blood. If we ignore the rule of law, even the oldest code of “an eye for an eye”, would stay this madness, but there is no satisfaction in insanity, rage, hate or revenge. God knew this and said, ”Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.” (Leviticus 19:18). Paul expounds, “Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: ‘It is mine to avenge; I will repay,’ says the Lord.” (Romans 12:19). These innocent babies who were sacrificed to demons, live in Heaven before God who created them in the womb. (Psalm 139: 13-15). They will get satisfaction from God when His wrath is revealed against the wicked and all liars. (Rev. 21:8).
