Praying that Charleston can be example of healing and unity

Brian LilleyArchive

The killer of nine people at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina said he wanted to spark a race war.

Yet so far we haven't seen the sorts of riots we did in places like Ferguson.

What we have seen is a community that has come together to mourn and support each other.

The children of one victim have even said they forgive the killer.

Maybe the people of Charleston can be an example to all of us.

Randy, it is not the presence of guns which is escalating racial and minority violence, it is the open propagation of polemic leftist politics and the ready access to an irresponsible politicized mass media which inflames, incites, radicalizes but does not inform the populace. Factional warfare becomes the eventual outcome of polemic “diversity” and multicult factionalization, instead of the Melting pot form of social homogenization into a unique coherent singular national identity as was the vision of early republicans. The reason is obvious – it has to do with the entry of radical leftism into mainstream politics. Leftism survives on inflaming differences between people, it stereotypes them and places them in groups and has them in constant conflict against each other competing for government influence or largesse. Leftism thrives on warring social factions and that has never been more obvious than the way the these political forces fanned the flames of racial warfare in Ferguson, NewYork, Charleston and Twin Lakes Florida.

If the simple availability of guns was the driving factor in crime or civil turmoil, then Switzerland, Sweden and Canada should be aflame in rebellion and awash in blood because we both have a population with a per capita firearms ownership nearing that of the US yet the US ranks just below Canada in the murder rate per capita – it’s all about perspective.

Do hope you are right Brian and the survivors of this massacre do turn the other cheek instead of a violent response. The media that sensationalized these events only instill fear and anger. Maybe we can learn from these good Christian people of Charleston. But I do fear there will be a race war on the horizon. In fact I’m starting to think it has already started. And like so many people have noticed there are way too many guns that are readily available either though legal but more importantly illegally means that the clock can not be turned back. God help American if there is another civil war.

I pray you are right Brian – however I fear the political forces of the left are lined up use this as a polarizing event – hopefully they will get the race war they want so they can usher in statist martialism across the country. This has the potential to “end America” as Drudge has postulated. Make no mistake this is their goal, a homogeneous America will never be right for them because socially/civilly content people cannot be inflamed, radicalized, manipulate or and set against their fellow citizens.

I hold out hope that the majority of black Americans can see through the despicable manipulative politics that are in play here to entice them to beg to be their own jailers.

Price Knight you make a good point. It is likely he chose the church to attack because he knew he would not be killed inretaliation, but did not calculate (or maybe not even know) that the Christian response is to love you neighbors as yourself, forgive others, turn the other cheek.

Seeing people, in the face of such horrific tragedy, who act-out the doctrine of, ‘Forgive us our trespasses , as we forgive those who trespass against us’, is such an impressive Christian trait, how can anyone compare Christianity to any other religion, let alone Islam?
‘Healing and unity’ might be better achieved if this tragedy wasn’t used so crassly by the scoundrels on the left, in aid of their gun-control agenda, and the real problem is not an inanimate object like a firearm anyway. The problem is drugs! Psychotropic Pharmaceuticals, etc…

See good can triumph over evil

His big mistake in attempting to create a “race war” was to attach church members. Christians are taught to love their enemies, and to do good to those who persecute them. If he had truly wanted to succeed, he would have taken on a black criminal gang… (…and died, but the revenge would have been there…)

My son attended Charleston Southern for 4 years on a baseball scholarship. Charleston is an amazing city but they have lots of crime like most cities. The people have a lot of pride in their history and are very proud. We haven’t seen a lot of race baiters like Sharpton etc. They would probably meet deaf ears.

A race war is brewing just fine thanks to the likes of Obama, Sharpton & Jackson.
