Unspeakable

18 Jun

Last night, our bishop, +Eugene Sutton was at St. Peter’s in Ellicott city, presiding at a celebration of renewal service.  The people of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church have been recovering, renewing and rebirthing since the May 2012 shootings that killed their parish administrator and a priest. The gunman, obviously mentally disturbed, died by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

At the same hour, Dylann Roof was opening fire in Emanuel A.M.E. in Charleston, SC.

Again, from the sound of things, the gunman is mentally disturbed. He has a history of drug abuse, racial hatreds, and his father had given him the gun he used as a 21st birthday gift in April.

How long will this nation allow this sort of thing to go on? The rest of the world sees us as outlaws, a remnant of the old west.

It’s time to take a good look at ourselves in the international mirror.

    We spend how many trillions of dollars “protecting America” from overseas threats, yet we can’t seem to protect ourselves from ourselves.
