Further to an on-going conversation with David of Theology Archaeology (a conversation which is going nowhere), I felt the need to address his last reply to me on a particular post of his. It is unlikely he will allow further comments through, but he cannot stop me from passing comment here, so here goes. Firstly, his comment:
I posted this last comment because it is typical of the distortion BLM, democrats and other anti government anti Christian people bring to any discussion. They just keep repeating the incident hoping it will change things but all it proves is that they are not interested injustice nor do they know what a crime is.
They only want their selfish way and refuse to acknowledge that their side is committing crimes as well as crimes against the police. Then they paint every police officer with the same brush displaying no sense of fairness, justice or sense of reality.
These people do not want to live under the government’s rules, they want to usurp authority and establish their own rules forcing others to live under them. They are just evil and do not have God with them.
Discussion is impossible as that author doesn’t get it that the police do not administer justice and that justice for that man will only come if the police are tried, fairly, honestly, with justice. God does the condemning I do not.
Then the author of that post sweeps the deaths of innocent policeman under the rug. He calls it a distraction and refuses to demand justice for them. He is as hypocritical as the bullies of the democrats, BLM and similar organizations are. Then calls me dishonest ha ha ha ha ha.
David likes to use the word ‘distortion’ a lot but never actually defines what’s being distorted, even when pressed to do so. Instead, his post is full of unwitting irony.
Firstly, David likes to make blanket, sweeping statements. He assumes every protester is a rioter. He assumes because I won’t fall for his distraction (RE violence against police) that I am all for violence against police, even though I’ve made it clear to him, several times, I do not condone the violence and the looting. I have merely said that I understand it, something David does not even attempt to do.
He claims I do not know what a crime is – David does not appear to know the difference between an allegation of a crime and an actual conviction; nor is he prepared to acknowledge that what happened to George Floyd was a failure of justice. I pointed out to him (and I quote) Even *if* Floyd were guilty of deliberately using counterfeit currency, what happened to him wasn’t right. You can remain silent on that, and just tells me you are not really interested in justice. You know full well no justice was served to Floyd, and yet you cannot bring yourself to acknowledge that. David has chosen not to address this point, and that speaks volumes.
For someone who speaks of God’s rules, I can only wonder what God’s rules say about choking someone (who is clearly no threat) to death over a counterfeit note, without giving that person due process. I can only wonder why anyone be afraid to actually say this is wrong, and hide behind their faith as an excuse to avoid commenting.
Everything else is a distraction, a diversion. He speaks of bullies and selfishness, yet he asks us to support Donald Trump, bully-in-chief. A deceitful, misogynistic bigot, leading a party of largely the same. That again, speaks volumes.
