Evil in America

Evil: causing harm : PERNICIOUS - the evil institution of slavery (Merriam-Webster).

[Jesus said] "The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that what it does is evil." (John 7:7 NIV).

Are you loved or hated by the world (v. 7)? Why? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1500).

It is my view that we have three pernicious evils afflicting America: 1) Chronic ideological escapism blinding us to the unjust distribution of wealth and the systematic and brazenly insufficient and unfair compensation for ground-level wealth-creation--a devilishly perverse and set American credo being the exclusive identity of wealth creators with wealth holders; 2) The fallacious credo that handgun ownership extends the police power of the state to each and every citizen--an unspeakable affront to the legitimacy of the state and the safety of its law enforcement officers; 3) Complicity in the delusion that alcohol and tobacco are essentially harmless physically and socially despite palpable evidence otherwise coincident with the cavalier refusal to take strong measures to address harmful effects.

Now I am not hated like Jesus because I obsequiously seek to offend no one.  And due to my reluctance (in concert with others like me) to stand up for truth, we ipso facto create an even more pernicious evil.
