Faithfulness to the Gospel demands nothing less. God will not hold us guiltless for silence in the face of evil.
Bonhoeffer was a German theologian martyred for his opposition to Hitler. His words remind us that authentic spirituality requires a real and costly discipleship.
Our country has a violent gun death problem. We have a mass shooting problem that has reached epidemic proportions. But, it is completely wrong to blame video games.
The charts above show that out of the top ten countries where video games are bought (and played) the most, only the United States has the demonstrable issue with gun violence. And the reason for that is clear.
We have a culture of violence that allows and even encourages mass shootings. We have an inciter-in-chief that stirs up hatred and violence at every opportunity, spewing racist and xenophobic rants to rally his base. We have the Senate Majority leader who has been bought and paid for by the NRA and Moscow. He refuses to even allow discussion on gun control.
The problem is not video games. The problem is rotten leadership.
For a whore-mongering coward like weak, little Donny to celebrate the 4th with a military parade is as hypocritical as him hugging the American flag while stomping on the Constitution, or pretending to pray.
The millions of dollars this “reelection campaign event” is going to cost could be better spent on anything we could imagine from veterans care to hunger and homelessness to overcrowded and under-equipped immigration centers to basic infrastructure.
Why do we as citizens have to pay for this lying pig’s masturbatory exercise in pretending to be a strong man? We need to replace those in Congress that still support this traitor with real representatives that support and defend the Constitution.
