Christian Writer Encourages Illegal Activity
Here’s a good one, that I’d like to see someone explain. A billboard with the words “One Nation Indivisible” was vandalized. That, in and of itself, is deplorable, but nearly as bad as what followed.
WND writer Chrissy Satterfield, a self professed ‘Christian’, encourages such activities. The title of her article is “My Kind of Vandals”. I’ll pull a couple of choice quotes from the article:
Never would I encourage vandalism, but in this case I think I’ll let it slide. Atheists have been vandalizing my beliefs for years, so it’s about time the shoe was on the other foot.
I would like to extend my deepest thanks to the man or woman responsible for this vandalism. I appreciate the action you took. Thank you for reminding me that I’m not alone. It took a lot of guts to do what you did – and the fact that you haven’t stepped forward to take credit makes you a hero. It shows everyone that you are more devoted to the message than you are to the spotlight. I encourage you to keep your cover. Don’t give the secular world a reason to call your name; instead, let them call for our God.
That last bit is particularly disturbing. Calling someone who knowingly breaks the law a hero and encouraging them to not come forth. Of course they are hiding, they’re scared of the repercussions. They are moral and physical cowards.
Look, if someone attacks my family, I’m going to shoot them dead. I will have no problems doing so. I will also take the penalties for doing so. If a court law says that it wasn’t justified, fine. I feel that it was and I will accept any punishment.
This guy/gal/people is different though, he’s a coward. He/she has a message, but they are scared of the consequences of their actions.
Even Martin Lurther, who encouraged standing up against injustice, encouraged people to accept responsibility for what they did. Not so these ‘Chrisitans’.
To quote PZ Myers: “The whole article is a self-righteous exercise in justifying vandalism and encouraging others to continue the practice. It represents a rather worrying escalation of the conflict to the incitement to violent action against property, all wrapped in cowardly weasel words to maintain implausible deniability.”
So how about it… are any ‘Christians’ willing to accept the law of the land and write this woman telling her that her writings are wrong?
P.S. I’ll leave with this: Romans 13:1-7 states, “Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves. For rulers hold no terror for those who do right, but for those who do wrong. Do you want to be free from fear of the one in authority? Then do what is right and he will commend you. For he is God’s servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God’s servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer. Therefore, it is necessary to submit to the authorities, not only because of possible punishment but also because of conscience. This is also why you pay taxes, for the authorities are God’s servants, who give their full time to governing. Give everyone what you owe him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.”
