I’ve debated posting this. A large part of it has been due to fear. However, the only thing we have to fear is fear itself right?
After a week of watching the bombings in Boston and the manhunt that followed, someone shared the following photo with me on Google Plus after the second bomber had been captured:
I shared it with my group of followers. It wasn’t too long after I had this response:
This response was from someone that lives in my general area that I’ve never met or actually had any conversations with so I haven’t lost a friend. This is someone I knew nothing about their background. He is a person who is involved in the game Ingress that I’ve been participating in and he followed me from there.
I think the fear of posting this comes from the world of political correctness we now live in and frankly I’m tired of it! There is also a small fear that this person lives in my community. Are there people who would do things like in Boston here? Does this person know a lot about me from social media?
I’m tired of being preached to that Islam is the religion of peace and most are peaceful. That may very well be true. However, how many attacks have people who have been brainwashed by radical followers of this peaceful religion?
If you’re a muslim and this has you upset well I’m upset at the constant attacks on civilians and the killings in the name of your God!
How about you make changes in your community to get rid of these bad people?
For the most part I try to keep quiet in these things and if someone isn’t bothering me I don’t care what they do. Maybe that’s the problem here anymore. People can’t point out problems without the worry you’re going to offend someone or be called names.
The next time I see a cross put in a jar of urine and it is called art I will make sure and make note the number of attacks that Christians or followers of other religions make against society when they have been insulted.
So far I only see one.
