The STRIPES of Healing
This biweekly newsletter will seek to explain the pain and suffering mainly people of color endure through no fault of their own. The dehumanizing excuses our people always seem to elicit from people in power that make our Christian Brothers and Sisters accept their reasoning as if it was uttered by the Almighty. Lastly what I see with my own eyes begs the question from my conscience. “Are we loving or can we really love our neighbor as ourselves”.
Issue 24: Even a Pastor Can’t Perform His Divine Service
I wonder what we will see next from the police. A Black person helping an old lady to cross the street being shot dead as kindness is a crime? A Black person helping an old white lady put a 50 lb bag of sod into her trunk being wrestled to the ground in a carotid hold? Oh, I got one, how about a Black person watering the flowers of a neighbor that asked him to do it and then the Black person gets arrested. Oh, don’t forget this part. The Black person is a pastor no less. You cannot make this stuff up if you asked God himself to bless you with the premise.
For example, 1 Peter 5:2…feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind. Oh course I’m going to explain this verse for the unlearned and the ‘evangelicals’ among us. If you’re asked by a neighbor for help you shouldn’t ask for money (filthy lucre). Not by constraint means no one should interfere with the duty of helping a neighbor willingly because you’re looking out for them as promised. Now being of a ready mind means to do something for someone else because it’s the right thing to do.
Watering a neighbors grass and caring for their property is covered in the decree given by God to feed his flock. Now whether the police officers in Childersburg, Alabama ever learned that doesn’t come as a surprise to me. Being ‘FIXATED’ on finding crime in even the most mundane of chores is part and parcel of being unprofessional in conducting police work. Now a normal person riding by and seeing somebody water flowers would simply wave at them and keep going. Not the police! I mean I can think of untoward acts involving watering flowers that would immediately require a call to SWAT.
In all candor what the pastor did is covered under the ‘decree’ of feeding the flock of God. When I was growing up I always heard about the pastor of the church going to give a small service to ‘the sick and shut-ins’ that physically couldn’t come to church. How the grass was cut. The house cleaned. Food prepped and well wishes left for recovery and good health. I’m going to continue to shout this from the pages of my website forever! It’s not the job of citizens to excuse ‘klondike kops’ behavior. It’s the job of the police to police their own ranks with the appropriate civilian oversight. Police always want the praise but they get pissed when you point out their wrongs. What’s the old saying, ‘You can’t have it both ways’.
Now for this last nugget of information relating to former President Trump and the idiots that promoted hydroxychloroquine. Does anyone remember the television show starring Anthony Michael Hall? The Dead Zone, Season 2 Episode 14, ‘Plague’ will tell you where they came up with the cure for Covid 19.
As all my loyal readers know I work in the field of mental health. Tell me something great fans of this website. The elders and experienced so-called ‘professionals’ in every field of discipline that has translated their skills into jobs explain this to me. Why education, life experience, what works and doesn’t work. Why all of this wisdom and knowledge being reviewed by all sorts of people capable of discernment consistently leaves us all dispirited? Why can’t we marvel with joy at the ‘just’ adjudication of authority in America?
Why do we have to see the leaders of one political party (The Democrats) correct the unlawful intentional bad acts of another political party (The Republicans). Not only that but the Democrats have to fight the Republicans on laws both parties passed in Congress. Laws, rules, regulations and judicial rulings both political parties have sworn to follow. As I said in one of my other digital periodicals ‘America: The Reroute’ hem and hawing over the security of America as if one man is above the law defies madness.
As I said before, ‘SECRETS’ are soft targets. Ask Russia if having more firepower than Ukraine foretells Russia’s inevitable victory. Troop movements, combat strategy, application of ‘The Art of War’ principles is what leads a country to victory. Again I don’t care if all the ‘Evandevicals’ in America make former President Trump their God with an idol of him on their nightstand staring at them while they sleep. Ex-President Trump is an evil man who will never repent. Get that through your thick skulls ‘EvanDevicals’!
America is the point. Therefore God’s mercy is upon America because enough ‘Christians’, spiritual beings along those that believe and practice whatever religion they desire ask for God’s mercy upon us constantly. All those power hungry ‘assclowns’ don’t have the ear or presence of God. Are you kidding me? These fools believe God is vindictive and petty? That God wanted White people to deface and disgrace the capital city of our nation? That God chose even one of those hundreds of people to be a leader of any level of our government Federal or State? Are you sick?
Fight for America. That means rewarding authority to the Democratic political party that has shown what side they’re on. Give Democrats the authority and they will continue to do their jobs for America. Democrats I’ve come to understand why they avoided fights as fighting over clearly what’s right is ludicrous to them. Consequentially the Democratic Party now understands that America itself is on the ballot. This fight is forever now. Democrats know this now. Help Democrats preserve America for hundreds of years to come. America is the point!
Vote Democrat. Please. Thank you.
