Genocide is assumed to be the most heinous crime. I have always thought that Britain and Spain have to pay for the tribes they have made disappear. Some islands in the Caribbean have no First Nations left and those powers think they can just apologize and life goes on merrily. Kid us no more. The continuing disappearance of Canada’s First Nations women and children will not be adequately addressed if the Vatican apologizes to the First Nations of Canada and faces no day in court. Please, kid us no more!
The kidding about western or eastern goodness must end
Pol Pot, the PRC, a host of ancient empires, and all those kingdoms who have made large groups disappear without having to answer to the human collective have no lucky stars to thank. The modern homicidal ventures only get more press and no one but the utterly corrupt will find reasons to make genocide palatable. A day of reckoning is dawning. The sea is revealing its homicide secrets as predicted.
Our morality had better be consistent with the supreme powers of the justice of the cross. We had better work hard on this opportunity to love mercy, execute justice, and walk humbly. Governments will never be bastions of grace, mercy, and justice, but people who are can influence government to recognize that people – all people deserve a lot more dignity. What is going to happen in the Roman Catholic Church as a response to its involvement in genocidal activities is a matter for a more profound reflection on what it means to be servants of Light, champions of education and conscientious citizens contributing to solving social issues. Let’s pray and work for a brighter day. Kid us no more!
