Violence Epidemic and Facing Faith in the Future Offensive

Here we go again.

The epidemic of violence.

How will leaders imagine a way out of it?

Is there a will?

This moral issue merits mounting support from interfaith clergy.

Anyone who meets the Jesus of Christians, meets Judaism.

After all, the Jews are the people of the Old Covenant, the Hebrew Scriptures, who were never retracted by the Creator.

And, after a miliant Hindu nationalist shot down Mahatma Gandhi in 1948, George Bernanrd Shaw, said: "It shows how dangerous it is to be too good."

With a will to win the battle over a violent culture on the backs of our youth, evergreen hope heralds and assures of a universal moral law written on the human heart.

It does.

Will we engage to get the job done now, or, only follow a trail of blood in the next carnage of weapons of mass destruction with the usual rites of passage, the yawns, the indifference?

Our help is in the name of the Lord, who made Heaven and Earth!

  1. The talking heads ask why the shooters commit such heinous acts against society. Maybe today's fast paced society fails itself. A lack of nice, loving acts and a plethora of mean tips the scales allowing the weak to commit the unspeakable. Like it is said the flapping of a butterflies wings in one continent generates a hurricane in another. Perhaps a well placed smile or a self-less act in years prior might have served to prevent such horrors. So in this time of Christ's birthday perhaps we can tip the scales in a positive direction with loving support for one another. C. Pawloski
