Our family prayers for all those who remained peaceful in Chicago are that they will be protected and their hearts will expand in love and grace.
For all those who hate and rage, our prayers for you are the same, but also that you may open your eyes and see that you are being used and lied to. Bill Ayers is a terrorist.
We do not battle flesh and bone.
What is happening to us is a direct result of tolerating evil, looking for revenge and giving in to hate.
We all have played a role in this, either a large part by actually calling for violence, revenge or street justice, or by being silent in the face of evil.
Silence in the face of evil is evil itself.
There will be no innocent bystanders in what is to come.
We must all do the hard thing and follow Jesus, Lincoln, Bonhoeffer, Mother Theresa, Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela.
These are the leaders we must find and follow.
If you can't find one --- BE ONE.
What is happening now in Chicago is something I've warned against.
Bottom Up: The people riot and others call out for someone to make it stop.
Top Down: The top (which has its own agenda that is not constitutional or about the people) or a strong man on the outside provides the solution for the problems they in part created. The people embrace and welcome them with relief. "Finally, this person or group will fix it and put these people where they belong."
Inside Out: The help that arrives is not help. It is a totalitarian crackdown. It is a revolution and everything is turned inside out and lost.
I have been warning for quite some time that 2016 would be 1968.
It sadly looks as though that observation is going to play out the same way the caliphate prediction played out.
It is not too late.
The GOP must turn itself around and recognize what is happening and listen to the people!
RUN TO THE CONSTITUTION.
Reject hatred, anger, revenge.
Look to principles, not people.
Blessed be the peacemakers, not the strong men.
Many will rise to "help you." If they don't follow the Constitution and God, they may turn out to be your worst nightmare.
Please listen to this warning. It happens this way every time. Don't be duped. Run the other way.
