As usual, I've spent my evening on ATS reading about all of the F'd up things going on in the world today. I've read threads about rogue cops beating
a man to death, Ron Paul's heartfelt warning that the S is about to HTF, people who have lost their jobs and/or homes and are unable to feed their
families, wars and rumors of wars, government lies - you know: the usual ATS fare - and I have to ask: WHY are humans so cruel to one another?
WHY do some people hate their fellow man because of the color of their skin or because they choose to worship God in a different way (or not at all?)
WHY do some seek the acquisition of insane amounts of wealth, more money than they could possibly spend in a thousand lifetimes, when many of their
fellow human beings on this planet are starving to death? Why do women abort unwanted children when there are loving couples who would do anything to
be parents and would gladly adopt these "unwanted" chidren? WHY do our politicians lie to us, selling us - and our children and grandchildren - out to
corporate interests just so they can remain in office and line their own pockets?
Why do people (Muslims) blow up their fellows at prayer because they disagree on who should have led their religion after the death of Mohammed? WHY
does a man (a "Christian") blow up government buildings and then calmly mow down 80 some odd children? WHY do priests, who have sworn to preach the
Word of God, use their position of trust to molest the children in their care? WHY do those "in charge" (TPTB) feel that they are so above their
fellow man that they claim the privilege to enslave them? WHY do women murder their children (Casey Anthony, Susan Smith et al?)
WHY do police officers abuse their authority, in what seems like an epidemic of violence, to beat and murder those they've sworn to protect? WHY does
our government go to war against countries that have done absolutely nothing to us and present no real threat to our security (Iraq & Libya?) WHY has
that same government gone to war against its own citizens, labeling as possible terrorists those who have fought with honor in those foreign wars, or
those who support the Constitution, or those whose only "crime" is sporting a Ron Paul or Greenpeace bumpersticker on their car? When I read about the
greed, injustice, and man's inhumanity to man that has become an everyday occurrence it just breaks my heart.
Things really are about to go down the toilet in a BIG way, I feel it in my bones. I created this thread after reading a silly little post about a
"Vast fleet of UFOs are above south western USA now."
But I find myself wishing that
the thread were true, that a fleet of aliens really was about to come down from the heavens; Because at this point, I don't care if they were coming
to save us or eat us - one way or another I just wish it was over.
Come quickly Lord Jesus; your children are suffering. Save us from ourselves.
ETA: We are all brothers and sister, regardless of how we choose to worship God (or not,) our skin color, or our nationality. I recently started a
thread in which we can all get to know each other better on a more personal level. I hope that you kind folks will visit it, for it is my strong
conviction that we all have much more in common with one another than is readily apparent. When you read the OP in
THIS THREAD ABOUT NOTHING IN PARTICULAR
you'll see what I mean.
Peace and love to you all.
