A U.S. Marine enters the Catholic Church confessional booth in Manitowish Waters, WI
He says, “Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. Last night, I beat the ever living crap out of a flag burning, cop hating, anti-Trump protester.”
The priest says, “My son, I am here to forgive your sins, not to discuss your community service.”
Z: This has made the email rounds but I wanted to share it with you … in the hopes that we can somehow teach, enlighten and make more patriotic those flag burning, cop hating, anti-Trump protesters. OK, stop laughing! It’s probably not possible, but I do hope that we take the higher road and somehow love instead of ‘beat the ever living crap’ out of those who don’t agree with us.
Darned if it wouldn’t be much easier if we didn’t feel it’s not against us but against America these people protest, right?
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I, (Jesus), say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? …” Matthew 5:43-48
Have a wonderful Sunday………God loves all of us. Let’s act like Him….sourced by HIS LOVE!
