A Border Fence

If only the American Indians had constructed a border fence they might not have had all those problems like…oh…uh…genocide for instance.

All treaties with every separate tribe within the boundries of the United States have been broken or disregarded by the Federal government. Now the Federal government is disregarding the Constitution of the United States. The shoe is on the other foot. I am so glad that I am not stuck with a treaty or a constitution with any earthly government. Or even a fence.

They use to say that the white man spoke with a forked tongue. That split tongue has evolved and makes it much easier for the government to speak lies out of both sides of their mouths at the same time!

Pastor Rick, it seems to me that you have a very compassionate heart, and I believe that is what God wants us to have. The problem is that there are multitudes of atrocities committed against multitudes of people in multitudes of places. Add to that the dimension of time and history. Some of my 'white' friends like to tell me about the things that 'christians' / Christian nations have done to other cultures, and lay the blame with the Christian institutions, however, as a person if Asian descent, please let me assure you that that within the pagan societies there are atrocities committed upon their own kind, that are just as bad, if not worse than what the Christian nations have done. That's why there are so many refugees running from pagan nations to Christian based countries.

Ys, there are atrocities being committed across the world. Millions of unborn babies are murdered here as well as China, Vietnam, and other countries. My point was that the American Indians were slaughtered to the tune of perhaps 20 million and yet America's concern about illegals is economic. This entire nation was formed by violence including a violent unprising over taxes after the Indians had been massacred.

A little known or thought of Word I suppose was not their contemplative mindset? But hey, who am I but a grateful Native American man!

Shall not all these take up their taunt against him, with scoffing and riddles for him, and say, "Woe to him who heaps up what is not his own— for how long?— and loads himself with pledges!" Will not your debtors suddenly arise, and those awake who will make you tremble? Then you will be spoil for them. Because you have plundered many nations, all the remnant of the peoples shall plunder you, for the blood of man and violence to the earth, to cities and all who dwell in them. "Woe to him who gets evil gain for his house, to set his nest on high, to be safe from the reach of harm! You have devised shame for your house by cutting off many peoples; you have forfeited your life. For the stone will cry out from the wall, and the beam from the woodwork respond. "Woe to him who builds a town with blood and founds a city on iniquity! Behold, is it not from the Lord of hosts that peoples labor merely for fire, and nations weary themselves for nothing? For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the Lord as the waters cover the sea. "Woe to him who makes his neighbors drink— you pour out your wrath and make them drunk, in order to gaze at their nakedness! You will have your fill of shame instead of glory. Drink, yourself, and show your uncircumcision! The cup in the Lord 's right hand will come around to you, and utter shame will come upon your glory! The violence done to Lebanon will overwhelm you, as will the destruction of the beasts that terrified them, for the blood of man and violence to the earth, to cities and all who dwell in them. "What profit is an idol when its maker has shaped it, a metal image, a teacher of lies? For its maker trusts in his own creation when he makes speechless idols! Woe to him who says to a wooden thing, Awake; to a silent stone, Arise! Can this teach? Behold, it is overlaid with gold and silver, and there is no breath at all in it. But the Lord is in his holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him." (Habakkuk 2:6-20 ESV)
