I am disgusted. Disgusted that today, when people die, nay are murdered for who they are, it goes unnoticed. We walk on. Just keep living our lives. Thinking to ourselves, "Don't pay attention to that child starving on the street, that homeless veteran our government used like a pawn, that woman who has AIDS because she was raped by her father" and on and on and on.... It pisses me off! How can we stand ourselves? Yeah, some of us notice (that's you); we care. We do the best we can. But we can only do so much.
Sure, it brings me joy that 1000 students march over the death of an innocent child
, but he is still gone. When will we realize that enough is already far too much? When will we see the atrocities of our actions? God save us from this wretched cycle of violence!
Timothy Kincaid posted another rant about the inaction of the Church over this issue here
. I can only echo what he has already said. The Church is the Body of Christ, the Saviour of the World. Sometimes I think to myself, "God is Dead. His Body has been torn to shreds by the very people who claim to compose the Righteous Host." But I remember that God is Surely not dead. I see marches like those referenced above and I remember that there is a God, and (S)He is even more disgusted by these acts of violence and hatred than any man could comprehend. Christ never came to justify such actions, and the Church better start gettin' a little more vocal about such injustices or else she is gonna pay. God has a high standard for those to whom much has been given, and He isn't about to lower it any time soon.
