I don’t know why we are so afraid to say that the people that are terrorizing people on nearly every edge of the world are terrorists and extremists. Why can’t the president just say that? We do not have to be and cannot be politically correct all of the time. When some extremist Christian people were bombing abortion clinics, they were called Christian wackos. As a matter of fact when people talk about terrorists, the argument by many is that Christians at one time did acts of terrorism hundreds of years ago in the name of religion.
But, these terrorists are doing all of those acts in the name of religion in the modern world and all over the world. There is no limit to who they kill. They kill people in their own religion, people who lack religion, people in “opposing religions”. It should not have taken the killing of artists for so many people to wake up. The freedom of speech thing has been threatened with every killing that these people have committed. Because anyone that does not think or speak or act or look like they do is an instant enemy.
All of that being said, it saddens me that Paris has had to go through this. But this is just the beginning of this kind of crap if these monstrous acts are not stopped. We as human beings all around the world need to join as one, get our heads out of our asses and call a spade a spade. Pretending that there is not a problem or that this kind of thing will not happen to us is ludicrous and nonsensical. Remember 9/11? Darkness, ugliness, sorrow and pain is what these people wish for mankind. It is like a bad movie where a couple of the characters attempt to “take over the world” except it is real and scary and makes one wonder how the future can possibly be bright.
No matter, this week I pray not only for Paris, but also for our country and leaders all over the world. Even if you are not the praying kind, it is time to be because it seems that nowhere is a safe haven except faith in Jesus Christ or God.
