Two Answers To Violence

And neither one are gun control. Chicago vs. Aurora - two cities in contrast. The two answers are:

  1. Involving youth in positive, traditionalist, pro-American organizations like the Junior ROTC.
  2. Prayer & Christian activism.

You'll notice that neither solutions are acceptable to Progressives, though both work. Progressives prefer failed policies like restricting the gun rights of law-abiding citizens. And remember, these are the "enlightened" ones among us. In reality, they're unable to process facts. They prefer ideology to reality, which is why all their programs are epic fails. 

 As one reader commented:

Aurora - locks up criminals and has 0 murders. Chicago outlaws guns and let's criminals run rampant and has over 580 murders. Go figure.

Yeah, go figure. Story here.

"Prayer & Christian activism."

What about for other religions or the non religious.

I'm a Christian, so I'm kinda partial to Jesus.

Josh said...

And apparently impartial against other faiths or non-believers. What about muslims or gays? Do they have a place in this system?

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

Absolutely Josh - Jesus died for all sinners.

Josh said...

"Absolutely...Jesus died for all sinners."

So you are implying that all muslims and gays are sinners in your mind just by the fact they are muslim and gay? Wow! I can't believe you would post that in the 21st century. You've proven yourself to be quite the bigot here. Sorry but theres no other word for it. I'm speechless at your inference.

How old are you Josh? Have you studied the world religions? This is all new to you? Frankly, I'm quite stunned. You've really never heard this before?

No, I'm not implying anything - Christianity it what it is. No one is forcing you to believe the Bible and accept Christianity, but I choose to do so. If you choose not to, that's up to you. You're a free soul. (BTW, I was once an agnostic and Darwinist.)

All religions have requirements and standards of conduct, do's and don't's, rules, etc. I can't believe I have to point that out. You seem rather chummy with Islam, have you checked out their belief system?

But let me see if I understand your reasoning. I'm a bigot because I don't accept and agree to certain beliefs and lifestyles other people hold to, yet you don't accept and agree to what I hold to. Based on your own logic, you're a bigot as well.

I failed to answer your question - I believe all humans are sinners. That would include me as well. Christ turned my life around and made me a new creature. I won't air my dirty laundry here, but had HE not, I'm not sure I'd even be around today. I was a non-believing agnostic with no church back ground. But I picked up a book on Bible prophecy one day, and I became quite curious. I explored Christianity with an open mind and came to the conclusion, with God's guidance, that the Bible is true and Christ died for my sins. You may view that as Pollyanna and a bit trite, but it's the truth in my life. I've seen Christ do the same thing in scores of others' lives as well.

My whole point was why not simply "activism" WHY does it have to be "Christian activism" in order to work?

And I'm 20 and go to Georgetown. I'm an intern at a govt. agency

Richard G. Williams, Jr. said...

Because it *does* work, despite the fact that many of its adherents are, like me, imperfect. Did you read the article? Compare the two approaches and the results. You want what works, don't you? Christian "activism" was a poor choice of words. "Involvement" would have been better. But no one said it "has" to be Christian, but it has proven results and I'm all about results. The touchy-feely stuff just doesn't get it for me.

Yes, I thought you sounded young - no offense intended, just an observation.
