The Purple Needle

I finally have a blog! This is my place to discuss my job search, my stitching, my addiction to the internet and whatever else crosses my mind! So stay, read, stitch and chat with me :)

Let's talk about the Amish schoolhouse murders for a minute. What an awful awful thing. To line little girls up against a chalkboard and shoot them. The only bit of good news in the ordeal is the police stopped his plan to sexually assault them first. Oh, and that monster is also dead. How very sad for that community. I did think it very kind and admirable of his widow to go and visit with the families. Yes, she was married to him, but this wasn't her fault.

Now the part that is infuriating is this "Christian" group who planned to protest at the funerals of these children! These "people" (I use the term loosely) were going to hold up signs telling these grieving families their daughters were burning in hell, and calling them other names I won't repeat in a family blog. Or anywhere else. They could be seen shrieking on national TV that these little girls deserved to die. How disgusting is that?! This is the same group of people that protests at military funerals too. I understand objection to the war in Iraq, as offensive as I find protesting a military funeral. I don't understand inflicting more pain on the families of these innocent children in the name of promoting an agenda. I don't believe in karma really, but I hope these people are standing right on the tracks when the karma train pulls into their station.

Right next them will be the 3 people who were living in the same small home, but didn't see John Couey put a ladder against his window or drag Jessica Lunsford through it, hear her scream while he raped her or see the big hole he dug in the backyard where he buried her. The bus ticket to Atlanta they bought him right around the time the police came knocking on the door was just a coincidence. Disgusting. The karma train is due in this station any minute now. Prosecutor Brad "I can't prosecute them" King's stop is next.

It really is disgusting. There are no words.

We allegedly live in a country where everyone is entitled to their long as 'others' think it is okay!!! The Amish community is close knit and deeply religious of the doctrines these so-called "Christians' you mentioned in your post are supposed to believe in....namely forgiveness. When do people stop to realize they do not have the inherent right to judge anyone.....isn't that God's pervue? I feel so bad for the families of these children, for the wife and children of the gunman.....they are all victims. Maybe together they will help to heal each other and that will be the greatest gift to all mankind.....a good example!
