Shocking stuff here from Life Site News.
NEW DELHI, India, November 22, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – 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.
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?
