Discrimination:We must All Tremble With Indignation

a-thousand-years-from-now-21817618

Old Sir, I heard a tale: Once upon a time,
during a dark time in our history
there was a man named Trump.
His motto- in his own time was_
“Always get even. When somebody
screws you, screw them
back in spades.”

Sir, was there ever a man named Trump?

The old Sir replied: Yes. Little girl.
I’ll tell you the truth.Trump was a
member of the fraternity of

  • NO-NO-NO’s.

The fraternity wasn’t exclusive.
Oh, no, my child, there were
many members of the, I No-
Nothing – I See Nothing –
I Hear Nothing
fraternity.

The old Sir continued: Little girl.
Truth be told: That man never
demonstrated benevolence,
decorum, dignity,
impartiality, respect,
warmth, morals.

—Little girl, this was a very dark time in
our history. Remember though, there
were many who believed
better days would come
… and so there was

There were many victories … won by many
People; Transgender, Bisexual, LGBTQ
people. Men and Women:

People of diverse color, faith and tradition.
People united; worked together. Equity was
Established, and we were led out of
that dark time

The dark time ended because love won.
Love always wins. It always has and
always will. Love your neighbor,
always give hope and
practice love.

If we all do this we will never
have such a dark time of
Trump. Not ever again.

The minute groups assemble for the specific purpose of organizing to establish a license to discriminate; the very essence of the concept of Justice is demeaned, cheapened devalued.

Discrimination is ugly: Discrimination means one person or group is deemed superior; and others are deemed insignificant.

Human Rights: When justice is denied, equity -fairness for everyone will be subjected to heightened or enhanced scrutiny.

Oppression and suppression is a threat to the universal concept of dignity.
Denying human rights is not only unpatriotic. It is terrorizing.

Denying anyone their human rights degrades the concept of justice.
Robs the the nation of domestic tranquility.

Caring for Earth

Sweetpea’s Garden

The earth and its people are irreplaceable and both are in our care.golden earth

“Earth, who gives to us this food,

Sun, who makes it ripe and good,

 Dearest Earth, dearest Sun,

We won’t forget what you have done.” 

People are walking in darkness and the Earth Mother is crying out – asking all of us to show more compassion and understanding; it’s time for us to re-gather to share our common wisdom and show respect to the Earth Mother, to its people and cultures.

You and I share this planet, a home that was created for us but the lands are being spoiled by greedy and power hungry men and there is only a minuscule of peace and harmony between nations, and little or no love between family, friends or neighbors.

The Earth Mother carries the burden of eleven billion people; and many hearts are hard and cold.

On The Hill

On The Hill  – The Don

In a dark castle sits The Don. A corrupt,  slothful, boorish king.

sitting alone in a dark room. Fondling his stash of hidden cash.

Thick saliva slowly drips from his mouth; a low guttural

sound comes  from deep in his throat.

He’s just realized the large numbers of dissenting voters.

A vindictive man – he has an evil thought. He plots, rages,

then roars an order. Then smirked in triumph.

His tweet sent: The Mitchman has his orders.

He knows what’s at stake.


“This will cause more chaos, disorder” He cruelly chortles: “

My fans love me. I’ve made their day”.

An isolated queen sits alone in the royal tower, her long

slender fingers move slowly over the treasure chest

of colorful Jewels and dazzling diamonds.She hears

The Don rant and roar and sighs… 

‘Everything is always done this way.

His way.’

Clusters of rubies, citrine, and topaz catch her eye.

She broods over the news of the fire and brimstone woman,

Who publicized the taking authority over demons.

There’s a crackling in the air!  

Her blood runs cold.

Her flesh crawls.

 

There is a certain pastor.

politician preacher

Something, ruthless, deceitful about him.

Something is merciless about his prayers.

 

Alone in his chapel; the man in her thoughts

is pleased with his word choices, and what

they can accomplish. Words carefully

chosen to be demeaning, demoralizing,

dehumanizing.

Civility be damned, certain people must be purged. 

Yes, his words must be persuasive.

Convincing  words are necessary.

They need to terrorize….

There’s a memory of his father; a pain is felt near his

heart. But both memory and pain are Ignored.

He pushes all aside.I’m right.

The Bible tells me so.

 

Standing before a large ornate mirror a Pensive prince

contemplates his image. Arms outstretched….

He asks… “Mirror, mirror tell me quick, tell me true;

I must know: Am I the most impressive;

the fairest of them all?”

Silence is his answer. 

 

The angry, violent NazTi Boys: The newest gang of

thugs in town are heard. They’re loudly tromping

their way up the hill.


Will The Don welcome them at the door?

Will they be wined and dined? Will invitations

be extended to attend upcoming  events to

religify Organizations …

 

Religious Freedom: License to discriminate their goal:

The laws must be changed.

They say, To keep America

on The Right Track. They

say. To retain traditional

Christian values. They

say

The Don sits back and

smirks

Memory Holes

Memory holes: There should be no forgetting of those who committed a large part of their lives to serving others.

Brave Souls: We must give thanks to everyone who are serving in the military, or have served in the past. They were courageous – even if they served within the borders of the United States. Courage was demonstrated.

Service reshaped you in many ways. It is our shame that we do not always see beneath the skin. There are wounds one sees, and there are wounds we don’t.

What was given, or being given today speaks of the peace we enjoy today.

Your service gives us all another layer of protection:

Because of your commitment to protect what you felt was right, honorable and just, everyone enjoys a life of freedom and liberty. (though we are working on justice and human rights for everyone); we still enjoy the inviolable right to pursue happiness.

For those gone: You won’t be
erased. Forgotten.

For friends here, I’m
honored to be
your friend.

May you live long, and
May you live well.

Grief: Theirs, Ours, Mine

Light walkers – Brave strangers_
With torches alight, shared stories

Light walkers – Brave strangers
Stopped to pay their respects
Express sorrow, their pain
Some prayed

Brave strangers – Light walkers
Shed tears, asking why?

Brave Strangers: light walkers
Knelt, lit candles

Light Walkers, brave strangers.
Ordinary people respectfully
Came together, said prayers,
Left flowers.

Light Walkers, Brave Travelers

  • 12 killed in Thousand Oaks,
  • 11 killed in Pittsburgh,
  • 17 killed in Parkland,
  • 26 killed in Sutherland Springs,
  • 58 killed in Vegas,
  • 49 killed in Orlando,
  • 14 killed in San Bernardino –
  • the list continues.

We are not strangers. We need to take care of each other

as we find a path to peace and justice.

What comfort can we bring to the grieving? What words of comfort can be said to the family, friends left bereft because of another’s deliberate – senseless act of violence.

“You are a brave traveler, homeward to the eternal … 

A  light walker, walking into the light,

into the Bliss, your final destination.”

No. Our words will never touch another’s grief, pain, sorrow.

Somehow, though;  someone with enough determination will find the way to harm others.No law. No legislation will prevent  a raging person from his criminal intent. Someone will find a way… if not with a gun… a bomb… poison gas.

Life is Sacred. Our humanity is slipping away. 

It seems we have forgotten: Man has drifted afar.

When did we decide we no longer cared?

How long will we shut our eyes, our ears, our heart?

Hypocrites in The Church?

pastors praying over trump

The hypocrisy in the White House

is hard to ignore.

Deceptive Christians say all manner of evil against LGBTQ people. They curse, insult, persecute, taunt, revile, vilify, slander LGBTQ people and other vulnerable communities. They say all manner of evil against them. Underhanded, unprincipled deceptive men and women, without  ever a thought to their safety, security and well-being they have tainted them. Tainted them very badly under the guise of Christianity.

false withness

Thus, they are missing the point of the beliefs and practices of Jesus of Nazareth. True Christians do not treat people cruelly, advocate violence; injure, hurt, harm others, or condone abuse or bullying others.

Great Commandment

Christian teachings are honorable and just.

Being true to His teachings, Christians are known as the Merciful. The merciful bless and restore the weary. They comfort the grieving, feed the hungry. They clothe the needy. They are known as peacemakers. 

They speak up – Speak out for Social Justice
