Taking a Social Media Break

I’m going to take a few days away from blogs, Twitter, and Facebook. I may post here, but I won’t be getting into too many conversations.

There’s just too much that makes me hurt and angry, too much that drives me insane and makes me want to scream.

Too many self-righteous rants. Too many Jesus Jukes. Too many people scoring rhetorical points for their side without ANY respect for facts, actual crime figures, or giving the families time to grieve.

Far too many people gushing over President Obama’s show of emotion over these children and ignoring the 170+ children he’s killed via drone strikes. One rant described George W. Bush as a serial killer of children, but said nothing but good things about Obama. Really?

Far, far too many people spewing vengeful, bloodthirsty theological explanations ranging from prayer in schools to the ever-popular John Piper explanation, God is perfectly justified to kill anyone he wants at any time and if we object it’s just because we’re too depraved to understand God’s holiness (which happens to look just like sadism, but that’s only because we’re too evil to understand the difference).

And time after time I struggle to stay out of it. And time after time I fail. I’ve had it. I’m stepping back from this puke-storm until the bile settles down.

I think I’ll leave with something funny, if slightly gross.
