This idiot’s expression is incredible when he finds out starving an infant to death is punishable by life in prison without parole. Too many people, especially men, think their children are their property, not separate lives independent of them. Too many people call themselves Christians without having any idea what it means, too. Unfortunately, these two morons have two other kids who will now be raised in foster homes. What is it with all the stories about child murders, child abandonment, etc., these days? Maybe it’s time to start requiring a license for having a child the same way licenses are required to catch fish and drive cars. Or are fish and cars more important than babies? Sorry for the rant. This is just another of the dozens of things I don’t get about human beings.
I wish that was all the bad news in America today, but there was also this:
South Carolina Mother Arrested for Homicide After Leaving Newborn in Trash Bag on Car Floor
Man Arrested at Extremist Muslim New Mexico Compound Was Training Kids to Commit School Shootings
Mother of Dead Fetus Found in American Airlines Bathroom Arrested
Police Locate Mother of Baby Found Dead in New York River
Then there was the little boy yesterday who overdosed on meth because his father was too strung out to get out of bed when he said he was hungry, so the kid ate his entire stash thinking it was cereal. Yep. Cereal. He died horribly a few hours later, and I’d be willing to bet the dad regretted losing the meth as much or more as losing his son. Here’s the boy and the waste of skin he called “dad.” In better times, that kid might be at a park or zoo today with parents who laughed with him. He’s laying on a cold, steel gurney at the morgue instead because this piece of dog crap (not to insult any actual dog craps) was too lazy even to keep his drugs out of reach.
I’m sorry to bring everybody down. I usually try to keep things light. But we’re all used to this crap anyway, right? Today is just a little bit worse than most days in America. Adults have never been able to get along, but the ignorance of some people is even more appalling when it affects the lives of children who didn’t ask to be born and got ripped off in the cosmic lottery by ending up with monstrous parents.
I’ve never been a big believer in the “end times” because people have always been brutal, because we probably just hear more about it now that everyone has a camera in their pocket, and because we have such easy access to news, which is all bad by nature. But it’s still hard not to take these words from the bible seriously –
“But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.”
– 2 Timothy 3:1-5
