When the news makes me hate the world.

Standard

I watch the news, and I am rarely shocked….the world can be a chaotic and upsetting place.  However, there are some news stories, that not only shock, but horrify me as well.  Here in WV, a man allegedly raped a 9 month old baby to death.

That is why I believe in the death penalty…although, I think it’s too good for someone as utterly evil, vile, and disgusting as this man.  Someone with that level of depravity should be tried, them immediately executed.  Forget the 20+ years of appeals….and all the years of working the system.  Some people shouldn’t be allowed to live on this planet, they have reach a level of evil, that only Hell will understand.

I don’t know about y’all, but I rarely see any good news anymore.  There are fewer and fewer “feel good” stories.  I turn on the news, and what I hear today, is usually significantly worse than what I heard yesterday…and yesterday was pretty awful.

I see women and children being raped.  I see “honor” killings.  I see terrorist attacks.  I see a lack of basic humanity from Facebook comments to the mainstream media.  Somewhere along the way in the last 30 years, we’ve become a world of people that only care about themselves.  We’ve lost our way, we’ve lost our moral compass, and we’ve lost our compassion for our fellow man.

So, today I’m turning off the news, and I’m saying a prayer, because at this point, only God can help us now.

(FYI, if you want to rant about God, do it someplace else.  I will neither read, or publish your comments.  I believe Jesus is my Savior and NOTHING you can say will change that, so move along.)
