Be An American, Be A Christian

 ... when you watch the looting videos. Don't be a tool of one of the political parties.

As much as I love The Babylon Bee and their sister site, Not The Bee, they got this one dead wrong.

Please enjoy this video of San Fran looters looting other looters 😂😭

It showed looters arriving back at their apartment complex, arms laden with stolen clothes, being attacked and robbed by their neighbors. Ha ha! What fun!

That's the way the reds saw it. I don't know how the blues saw it and bet that most of them didn't see it at all. Everyone in the video was a German person of color, so the left couldn't spin it into a case of Jews whites oppressing them. Allow me to suggest two other ways of viewing it.

As An American

We're in deep trouble. We need everyone to be as productive and successful as possible.

If you keep this in mind, then the video above isn't funny at all, it's enough to make you do a face palm. If you saw the people in that video as teammates, as fellow Americans whose help you need to conquer our debt, what would you do? Laugh at them? Tell them that whites were the problem?

As A Christian

In the Gospel of Mark, chapter 12, Jesus told us how we were supposed to live if we wanted to get to heaven.

One of the scribes, when he came forward and heard them disputing and saw how well he had answered them, asked him, “Which is the first of all the commandments?”

Jesus replied, “The first is this: ‘Hear, O Israel! The Lord our God is Lord alone! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

If your job was to help the people in that video get to heaven, what would you do? Encourage everyone to vote for Republicans? Encourage them to vote for Democrats?

Just something to think about. 

I'm taking tomorrow off. I'm struggling to find time for blogging these days. During No Net November, I had no problem filling my mornings with productive and useful things. Now that I'm writing again, those things are getting short shrift and I don't like the results.

I appreciate your take.

But I am sympathetic to the Babylon Bee here too. They're using humor to call attention to devastating policy mistakes that need to be corrected if America or souls are to be saved.

Seriously I don’t know why So many people hesitate to try this, This is purely a great opportunity to earn money in such a pandemic . I work two shifts, 2 hours in the day and 2 in the evening…And I get a check of $12600. What's awesome is I'm working from home so I get more time with my kids.
