Are we bigger than Dylann Roof and his comrades?

Do not use without permission.
During trying times, remember the Lily of the Valley and what He commanded us to do, while protecting yourself from evil.
Amidst South Carolina Governor Nikki R. Haley's entertaining tears and cries for justice, there is an un-Christian call to move suspected mass murderer Dylann Storm Roof into the gas chamber or onto a gurney to undergo lethal injection. This is a pseudo-Christian, troubling summons for retribution in a shell-shocked country.

Why the call to move swiftly to kill Roof coming from a pro-lifer? Would the nine people he killed, all Christians, want Roof to be executed? I say NO, and neither would Jesus. That's not the message that should be proffered here as we struggle with another tragedy.

Is Roof the anti-Christ in S.C.'s "Holy City" during a Race War?

Getting rid of Roof is an easy way out, but killing him will not solve our global race problem. Roof is one of millions of race soldiers and white supremacist who move and work in all areas of human activity, which Neely Fuller, Jr. has categorized as Economics (monetary systems), Education (mis-education), Entertainment (news and game-playing), Labor (unemployment), Law (mass  incarceration, Politics (leadership), Religion (philosophy), Sex (population control), and War (government sponsored killing).

I believe those murdered in Mother Emanuel A.M.E Church would not seek an eye for an eye, but would want to use this time to show compassion, spare this life, and turn it around by true rehabilitation.

Gov. Haley's recent comments are very reactionary, wanting to kill Roof before we even fully know anything about this man and his journey. Haley appears to be moving in the same realm of retaliation and hate that has consumed Roof. It is offensive and won't bring the massacred nine A.M.E.'ers back or enhance their mission of love and acceptance shown in their last hour of someone supposedly drawing to Christ. Haley's comments are not "Christian" but symbolize some "leaders" continuing mission to greet disaster with more death.

"Like in Bob Dylan's lyrics, Roof is only a "pawn in their game."

Killing Roof would play into the hands of the devil. Roof is not mentally ill but has evil ideas and spirits inside him, perhaps the same spirit that makes S.C. governor want him killed. When Jesus encountered Legion, he did not kill him, but purged him, sending his evilness into swine who destroyed themselves. "Thou shall not kill" is the commandment set in stone on tablets inscribed by God and presented to Moses. 

Conservative political powers want to get rid of Roof swiftly, however, those who framed his supremacy outlook are still out there. The constructive thing to do is to attack the ideology that has created Roof and other white racists/supremacist and get them the help they need.

"Roof chose the wrong victims to carry out his agenda - Godly, community-minded, educated people who were committed to love and justice."

Governor Haley needs to use her accounting degree to help empower her citizens to have economic parity in one of the poorest states in the U.S. She needs to have her army-trained husband assist former soldiers with their post traumatic stress syndromes. She needs to make sure her Mt. Horeb United Methodist Church in Lexington is integrated at 11 A.M. on Sunday mornings. She needs to teach her children that they are not superior to black people just because they are the children of the governor.

Additionally, we must meet this time of tribulation with an earnest and fervant plan to end all killing of ourselves, whether as a means of population control, race wars casualties, or religious wars victims.  We must join Christ in bringing to fruition 1,000 years of peace. If not now, when?

Governor Nikki R. Haley should not want to sweep Roof under the rug, but should be instrumental in taking that S.C./Confederate-racist flag down at the site of her Statehouse. She should stop crying in front of the cameras and instead should console Jennifer Pinckney. She should have her two kids, Rena and Nalin, interface with the Pinckney children, Eliana and Malana.

She should tell her Republican comrades to stop spouting the slogan, "Take our country back" which is basically what Roof wants to do. She needs to shine the light on herself and her peers first before trying to kill Roof. According to her bio, Haley  is pro-lifer and consistently voted for bills that restrict abortion and bills that protect unborn children. And she wants to kill Roof?

Pick up your sorrows and follow the Savior.
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.---Matthew 10:16 (ASV)

My priest friend who underwent military training in his native Greece told me he doesn't have a gun at his house because if a perpetrator breaks in, he may be compelled to use it, and a man of God should not take a life. He would be removed from the priesthood if he killed someone. Older priests do not drive because they want to make sure that they don't take a life in a car accident. Those are examples of true pro-lifers.

"This guy (Roof) is just whacked out," said S.C. Lindsey Graham who is running for president. However, he has not helped end racism or advocated removal of the Confederate flag from state premises.

Let's concentrate on this:
First: abolish death penalty in all U.S. states because it does not deter crime for people like Dylann Storm Roof.
Second: set up constructive plans to combat and end racism in school, work, and at play with community and business leaders.
Third: use NEWS as journalist vehicle to improve the human race and not as entertainment.
Fourth: learn and use non-lethal self defense strategies to combat crime.

In a sense, Roof is a throw away and collateral damage in the Race War which is being waged worldwide. He has not started a Race War; it has been going on for centuries. Not wanting to be unsympathetic to this person who appears disturbed but listening to initial reports of his past, it appears that he was mis-educated and fell for racist rhetoric presented to him. He had a major character flaw which was not eliminated by his parents, community, church or school. He fell through the cracks and by so doing became a menace to society and a merchant of evil.

Yes, Roof has committed sins. He has shed innocent blood, devised a wicked plot, swiftly run into mischief, been deceitful, and sown discord among brethren. But let's not follow him down that path.

We ARE bigger than that.
The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.

  1. RR says: Nicely said. So terribly sad. It is hard to pray for that man’s soul. Paradoxically, this insanity seems to bring whites and blacks closer. Seeing into each other’s eyes, huddling for shelter.
