Things I Think…
Many have also asked why I haven’t written anything about impeachment or the border issues that I’ve previously been so passionate about, instead favoring the cat videos I noted already.
The answer is simple…I don’t have much time these days and I have no time to waste.
Trying to persuade people to consider another viewpoint or another set of “facts” these days is a complete waste of time.
People have chosen who to believe and what to believe and now all they’re interested in is defending those choices by any means necessary.
Those who claim Christianity have also baptized those choices in the blood of the Lamb so that the ongoing wars with each other and “the world” are holy ones.
My own neck has grown stiff and my heart hardens a bit more every time I open Facebook.
My choice has been to step away and let the wars proceed without me helping either side…because some of us understand that we live in a world too complex for binary solutions.
The thrill of battle and the smell of war is so intoxicating that additional information or complex questions that might lead to solutions other than “victory” are scorned.
So, have at it.
At some point, we’ll realize that all of us were wrong in some way and we burned down our own house…but those epiphanies only happen in smoke and ashes.
In the meantime, I will continue to post cat videos.
While it’s pointless to try to inform you of the facts and future consequences of our border policies, perhaps I can perform another service on social media.
Maybe some little story of a rescued kitty or a faithful pet owner will tug at your heart strings.
In doing so, you’ll be reminded (with me) that you have one…a heart, that is…
Maybe for a moment you’ll remember that your “enemy” has pets too…
Maybe…we’ll find some common ground around our love for pets.
We haven’t found it at the foot of the Cross…
Make your own application…
