What We Should Be Known For

So many thoughts are running around my head after reading this article that I can't form a cohesive thought.

I want to yell and scream and pound my fist onto a solid oak table so that everyone around me can hear and understand how incredibly incensed I am.

I want to fight the powers that be. I want to help and hold and comfort the victims.

I want people that this villain does not speak for me, nor does he speak for any body of true believers and seekers. He does not represent us and he is not acting on behalf of God. He is nothing more than a CEO trying to save his company. And it makes me sick.

It makes me weep.

I can try to distance myself by saying, "but I'm a protestant, I'm not with that guy!" But it doesn't solve the problem. It doesn't change the fact that he represents Christianity to the world. It does make me wonder how there are still Catholics in the world . . . but I digress . . .

I'm going to walk away now and quietly contemplate how I can be a better Christian representative than this guy.

  1. I feel your anger, Citizen. You are NOT alone.
    There are certain truths and beliefs that I grew up on...some I kept, others I brushed aside. The 80's was a mess for me...a beautiful mess.

    I decided to finally just represent myself and shun those who were "supposed" to represent me. I'm not down. Homey don't play dat - as it were.

    We can only represent ourselves with the lives we choose to lead. If others choose to see us as a whole - then fine. That's on them.

    I think we can only be represented by who or what we choose to be represented by - and as you seem to be can do that with actions.

    I commend you, Citizen and I trust your actions.
    So seem to be all right in my book.
