Some days I just want to say stop to the world. I wish I could turn away from the news, but I feel compelled to â€œknow what is going on.â€ Right, like I have any clue what peopleâ€™s true motives are. I am not even sure I fully understand my own motives.
Today in particular the Shiite/Sunni violence is bothering me. It would be easy to stand in judgment of them were the Protestants and Catholics not for the decades of warring off and on in Ireland.
Stop. I just wish it would stop. Killing in the name of God, no matter your ilk, is just repulsive. I know first hand that religious sentiments can spark heated debate, just read some of my blogs. But all this is getting us nowhere. Never has. Yet we just keep doing it.
I am not sure I get it. I think Jesus himself tried boil it down to its core components. Love God and love your neighbor. I am quite sure neither I nor the rest of the planet are doing a very good job of it.
I just wish it would stop.
