Good, I’m glad he’s dead, he had it coming

Shocking stuff here from Life Site News.

NEW DELHI, India, November 22, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) โ€“ Satanists are taking pleasure in the slaying of a U.S. Christian missionary at the hands of a hostile aboriginal tribe in Andaman and Nicobar Islands off the coast of India.

The Church of Satan posted on Twitter Wednesday a link to an article about the death of 27-year-old American John Allen Chau, a Christian missionary who went to preach to the Sentinelese people.

Satanists described the murder of this Christian missionary as “finally, some good news.”

The tweet has been “liked” over 2000 times and re-tweeted over 600 times.

When a Twitter user asked the Satanists why they were celebrating this man’s death, someone going by the handle of Typhoid Taylor claimed the missionary deserved to die.

Wow!

If you go to Twitter and look at the comments following the above tweet you will see dozens (I would say hundreds or more but it’s doubtful sane people can read past dozens without puking) of anonymous accounts with very few followers that are maintained by profoundly ignorant trolls who think they are edgy and clever. I guarantee, if any of these people were called out by a parent, teacher, employer…they would apologize profusely and say they absolutely meant no harm and were only kidding, or being satirical or ironic, or something.

As for the Church of Satan, which is an actual organization led by actual non anonymous people, who knows what they really think? Were they trolling? Unserious? Did they, perhaps, misspeak knowing full well they can walk their comment back later? Anyway, and as I said who knows, I don’t know that much about the Church of Satan and really don’t care.

What I do care about, though, are the people who really are happy a fellow human being is dead simply because of his beliefs. And, make no mistake, that is exactly why some are happy. If Chau represented Doctors Without Borders or was there to dig a well, open a school, or pass out food there would be no rejoicing.

One Twitter user (as the Life Site article states) said that he celebrates Chau’s death in the same way he would celebrate the death of a serial killer or rapist and that bad people getting what they deserve is a good thing. So, I guess to some (probably many, sadly) someone who is taking the biblical command to go and make disciples of all nations literally is on the same plane as a serial killer or rapist? Do Twitter users who cower behind their anonymity honestly believe they have the authority to decide who is bad and who is not and who is worthy of life and who is not?

Even if a serial killer or rapist gets put to death legally, is this cause to celebrate? Sure, justice was served but, still, what kind of psychosis causes one to derive joy from it?

Even if I were to be charitable and say the people who believe Chau got what he had coming because he put himself in danger have a point, do they? Should I think “meh, he should have known better” like so many others? I don’t think so.

I was in the military for 20 years where, as part of my job, I went to dangerous places and did inherently dangerous work that could have got me killed. Still, would “he got what he had coming” be a good response had I paid the ultimate price? Of course not.

Bottom line here people is this. We live in a sick, twisted and dangerous world that is full of hate and rage.

Think I’m being overly dramatic or making a big deal over mere words? People do have a First Amendment right to express themselves even if their words ruffle some feathers right?

Yes, that’s right. But words come from the heart and sick and twisted words come from darkened and evil hearts.

Here’s a question for those of you who might think tough talk is OK. What would happen if one one of these tough talking Twitter trolls had a military at their disposal?

Not kidding that is a serious question. I know a few God hating bloggers who would likely think these Twitter comments are a hoot. What would happen if any of these people had actual power and influence?

    • I had no idea either until I read the Life Site article. Twitter, as I told someone yesterday, is a sesepool that I avoid.

      Sickens me too. Words frow from the heart so, are hearts that dark?

      • I completely agree with you, twitter is a cesspool and I also avoid it. Yes, there is a lot of darkness in this world. I have worked with the criminally insane and I can tell you, yes, there are many hearts out there that are that dark.

        • Hearts are very dark, I see it every day. I have never worked with the criminally insane so I can’t speak to that but I have worked quote a bit with both convicts and ex-cons and most of them seem regretful and wish they could go back and make better choices. For some of course, this is just talk but some are sincere.

          My point here, mostly, was that I have issues with people who spend their time expressing their hatred for a particular group. I know some atheist bloggers who have railed against faith with a vengeance for years, there has to be some darkness and/or psychosis there.

  2. James,

    You bring up some great points. I have been reading what some left leaning (so called believers) are saying, as well as those open opponents to the faith. This story has brought out the very worst in people. Imagine hating the people of God so much that you canโ€™t help but write this stuff. And they feel justified in saying it. It is truly sad.

    • Thanks Aaron.

      I have been thinking about this a bit lately and, as I said in the post, many of these people are probably ignorant trolls and harmless. But some of them would wipe Christiity off the Earth if they had the power and that is downright scary. At a heart level, it makes them no better than Hitler.

  3. I quit using twitter a couple of months ago. I was constantly being attacked for being a Christian, for being pro-life, and for being a conservative. But that’s okay, because “My God Reigns”. Hallelujah! Maranatha.. Come quickly Lord Jesus, Come.

    • I read an article recently that used poll data to say that a high percentage of melinials think conservatives are evil and inhuman. Not surprising at all with all the indoctrination going on in public schools and the same exact things new atheists have thought about Christians for years.
      They don’t have to show any restraint when they interact with those who have been dehumanized.
      I guarantee you, if any of these people had real power, they would get rid of religion but whatever means worked.
      If you asked them, of course, they will say they would use the law to put limits on proselytizing and teach more science and history in schools because they know they can’t sell Soviet style repression of ideals in a sane world. But after decades of these efforts failing, all bets would be off and people would die.

  4. When I read about horrible things like this, I turn to Scripture. Those who steal, kill and destroy and do not confess their sins at the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ are already condemned and will spend eternity in hell.

    This Christian missionary is already in the arms of our Savior.

    For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world yet lose his own soul?

    Mat 16:26
    For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

    These so-called satanists have exchanged their souls for an eternity of misery and separation from God. So ignorant and sad!

    They hated that man because their black hearts hated Christ first.

    If they had listened to the salvation message, they could have been rescued from the evil clutches of the enemy of our souls.

    John 3:18.
    He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

  5. It is so sad that people think and talk like that. It’s like this missionary went to a tribe of Indians to tell them about Yah/God, and they killed him, and some people are calling him arrogant for wanting to tell the people about Yah/God.

  6. Yes it is not good that anyone dies for nothing, however this guy illegally went to this island with the blessing of many others. Why was he not stopped by one of these so called Christian friends, they knew the risks? Makes no sense to me to believe God can make you invincible.

  7. Good post James. I’m glad more Christians are pushing back and even calling out those who are taking the death of John Allen Chau to deride Christianity and mock someone who served Christ. I’m glad you are calling out these keyboard warriors whether they are wannabe satanists or your village atheists types. Keep up the good work, glad to know you’re another brother out there in the blogosphere and internet

  8. Re your comment //Even if I were to be charitable and say the people who believe Chau got what he had coming because he put himself in danger have a point, do they?//.

    The lack of sympathy for this evangelical Christian does not stem from a belief that he got his just deserts because he deliberately put himself in danger. It stems from the fact that he flouted all the imposed restrictions designed to protect this isolated tribe, and in doing so he wantonly endangered the whole indigenous tribe. They have had little or no contact with outsiders& hence they have non of the our natural immunity that we take for granted. Chau was a walking bio-hazard and his stupidity could have wiped out this tribe.
