Darkness in my sister's heart

    A phone call last evening.

    I thought our talk proceeding normally (current events, ongoing nasty strife in USA), when Susan suddenly angrily proclaimed, "I wish the Native Americans had killed every White settler!"

    We do have a near Native ancestor, but this wasn't the basis of her outburst at all.

    Shocked me. I sat there a bit slack-jawed.

    Murder cannot be justified. Yes, I know the history of this country's creation.

    She went on to talk about a Native who'd been taken to England, used as a slave there, who somehow was brought back to America -- where he was willingly friendly and helpful still. That he should've NOT been kind and forgiving. I have NO idea who she is talking about or where she got this information.

    So I'm (sitting in stunned silence) thinking "WOW...how far off the deep-end have Whites gone in this country???*" To wish murder upon others, two wrongs make a right. o_O

    What happened WAS terrible.

    Now we're in 2020. Terrible again.

    It'll be even more terrible (imo) if all is truly lost; all that (unjustifiable) suffering ... for nothing. (n)

    I've recently quit Twitter for similar attitudes. I'm like, "Well if YOU want to get killed, attacked, beaten up, etc., for what's gone on in the past (and to some extent the present)...be my guest. I don't!" :cry:

    I don't hate myself nor do I embrace "Collective Guilt." I'll answer to God on Judgment Day for what I alone have done -- not for what others have done.

    My sister's words troubled me throughout the night. She does have emotional issues, and I'm doubly concerned for her mental state as tensions & guilt induction ramp up. She also has the burden of caring for our mother and her disabled son (also has a healthy and supportive husband with a good-paying job, thankfully).

    *I reside in a Latino neighborhood, in a small city that's 48% Latino for 27 years.

    I will pray for your sister DS. I think the way the world has become, people are looking for answers to explain what is going on. God and faith are my anchors but many people do not have a connection to God. Not sure if this is the case with your sister. It seems the world has left people looking for answers in which they are not receiving because the world cannot fulfill them....only God can. But people stumble around all their lives looking for answers , don't they. I did too but luckily was drawn back to God.

    Pray, pray, pray as we have been told!

    She did also question faith. I managed to draw her back somewhat. :)

    This is a wonderful story of the life and conversion of St Kateri Tekakwitha.

    Sorry to hear your sister has subscribed to such nonsense DS. I hope she comes to her senses.

    Thank you everyone.

    Her outburst follows on the heels of two days prior seeing a 32-year-old White man Tweet "If I were Black, I'd totally kill Whites."

    Another 40-something White man in Detroit making homicidal references to Whites he dislikes (if you don't agree 100% with him, you're a Nazi).

    I'd currently be afraid to go home for a visit. :coffee:

    She telephoned mid-afternoon today (Saturday).

    Livid. Ranting. Streams of profanities, including abuse of our Lord's name.

    Had lost her keys. No wait -- she just now sees them inside the car (locked out).

    Meltdown continues. Profane ranting. In a public parking lot.

    She is under a lot of stress. Mentioned husband's job keeping him away "doesn't help."

    Ironically, we'd just begun watching an interview with an exorcist (rare, rare viewing on my part). I almost visualized my sister in those moments...

    Keeping her in your continued prayers would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm going to phone our elderly mother and SUGGEST she place herself into a nursing home (is a small & safe town); not only to halve sister's stress, but she might be in danger of either Susan or Anthony (Susan's son) -- if either of them "snaps."

    Thank you.

    I'm sick and tired of self-hating whites opting into a "collective guilt" for things done to non-whites in the past. Learn from history and for Gods sake move on. As an Irishman, should I hate all Englishmen for what was done to my country historically? How could I hate wonderful Englishmen like GK Chesterton, St Thomas More and Cardinal Newman? Priority now has to be given to saving my soul and promoting our Holy Roman Catholic and Apostolic Church

    Amen! We know that this division of pitting us against one another only comes from one place, the evil one. In the end we just have to show our love for one another no matter what our differences, because that it how we will be judged.

    God Bless!

    Thank you all, again. :love:

    It's a very twisted form of "The Good Guy Badge", imo.

    A form of self-righteousness.

    Sick and sad!

    It's the battle of good vs evil going on in our world right now. It's manifesting all over in strange, ugly ways. Just cling to the old rugged cross . . .
