If certain foreign nations and their leaders can be called evil (Axis of Evil, Evil Empire, etc.) and foreign terrorists and/or suicide bombers can be called evil, why aren’t America’s home-grown terrorists and mass murderers called evil?
Why aren’t all mass murders, regardless of their home country, called cruel, wicked, and evil?
As I watched the evening news reports about the horrendously evil act of the mass murder of innocent women and children in Connecticut, I couldn’t hold back the tears. People ask: “Why?” Could we be getting a harvest of violence from the tons of seeds of violence that we have planted in our society?
Evil is real and if we don’t learn to resist it and overcome it within ourselves, it will overcome us and eventually overtake us. Our society has taught (and brainwashed) the last few generations that they should disregard “rigid” morality and instead go with whatever feels good to them. We have glorified and glamorized violence in the media and in heartless and cruel video games.
Perhaps America needs to proclaim, obey, put on TV and other media, and even put back in schools, the commandment: “Thou shall not kill.”
Even religion can be violent, but genuine spirituality is loving and nonviolent. Jesus put it this way: “Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.”
Here’s one more thought: If prenatal medicine is a good thing, why isn’t prenatal violence a bad thing?
