With race activists targeting statues, it was only a matter of time. Statues are raised for a number of reasons, among them is a particular person did something in history to advance a particular cause. It might make sense to them to take down any monument, which is being done. But their cause is racism. Or is it? If racism was at the heart there would have been particular statues left alone. Some people in history advanced the cause of the minority.
Race activists don’t want rules
That’s one of the things Jesus stands for and the United States was founded on the Judeo-Christian faith. One of the Ten Commandments is the super simple Love Thy Neighbor. Be kind to the person next to you.
But if you’re tearing down things that stand for something, especially for something good, nothing good will come from it. If you don’t stand for something, you’ll stand for anything. When anything goes, anything WILL go, including things you don’t like.
This has more to do with power
Man desperately wants power, that’s happened in history many times. Back when Jesus was on earth the power he wielded by his teachings was enough to threaten the leaders of the day. Jesus is a threat to man’s power.
There’s a song children used to be taught called “What Color is God’s skin?” Jesus was a Jew. What color were Jews? This argument will cut the race activists off at the knees. Although popular culture and images depict Jesus as being white, he was likely darker skinned.
Race activists only see man’s penalty
And scoff at it. We have rules against tearing down art. Curiously, the left has been silent about that. The expression they champion is now collateral damage. Democrats have bowed to the mob so anything is allowed.
We have rules against damaging government property which was again based on Judeo-Christian foundings. Since that’s man’s rule the race activists may eventually see punishment for that.
Man can judge to his heart’s content. How dark is the heart of the race activist that freely murders the innocent? You can tear down statues and likenesses of Jesus or God. But man’s judgment is nothing compared to the judgment a race activist will see once death comes.
