What kind of world do we live in when the children are the targets for destruction and death? What are we trying to show the lesser angels of every single religious thought that is known?
Children: They are victims of predators, parents who abuse them mentally and physically, religious orders that say children should not be healed by doctors; children who are in hospitals all over the world because a bomb, or a missile, or a suicide-bomber, or a person on a rampage for any kind of reasons.
They have targeted school yards, McDonald’s, hospitals, front yards, back yards, parks, recreation centers, refugee camps, carnivals, circuses, anywhere children can be found in numbers, and they turn they rage on them – children, the most innocent of all. There are more children on this planet now that have never known anything but war, death, loss of limbs, blindness, loss of innocence. They have never been able to play.
And this has been brought about by mindless men who seek power above anything else. And by religious zealots who have no clue what they are fighting for or against as long as their name gets into the newspapers, or on social media, or on television.
You want an angry god, no matter what name you give him. Because yes, they are all male. Tell me the name of any female god or warlord or leader of a nation’s military who would even think about calling down the war machine on a child.
I know there are perverted women who get involved in the suffering of children in areas of life not war. But while they are included in my assessment of people who target the children, they at least are not killing them by the dozens.
Well, you who are doing these things, in the name of god or religion or selfishness or just plain meanness, you may well be the final straw for all the gods, and maybe goddesses. Because if there is an End of Days where people are going to end up in some burning firepit to burn forever, you are asking for it right now.
Suffer the children, indeed. You make me sick.
