USA Charleston Terrorist, Dylann Roof, Attack Claim Nine Victims

Like America, he said, it was about freedom. “Freedom to worship … freedom to be all God intends you to be,” he said. “Sometimes you gotta make noise to do that.  – Rev Clementa Pinckney

USA  Charleston Terrorist, Dylann Roof, Attack Claim Nine Victims

Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston was the scene of a terror attack as a white gunman opened fire, killing nine people in the church, and sparing one woman  to spread the word of terror.

According to the Daily Mail, eight victims died at the scene and one in the hospital. A smart five year old girl pretended to be dead and luckily survived the attack.

The suspect (terrorist) is described as a clean-shaven, 21-year-old white male and is believed to be wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, and Timberland boots.

Mother Emanuel, as Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church is called in the community, is the home to the oldest black congregation south of Baltimore.

The historical Black AME church is tied to the history of the American South since the early 1800s. From slave revolts to the civil rights movements to present day police brutality.

In 1969, civil rights activist Coretta Scott King, wife of Dr. King, led a protest to the church; 900 were arrested by the national guard.

In 1962 the civil rights leader, Reverend Martin Luther King, gave the famous speech to vote.

In 1909 even the legendary African-American leader Booker T Washington spoke there.

During the 1861-65 Civil War, it was a secret meeting place for many southern black organizers.

Mother Emanuel’s pastor, State Senator Clementa Pinckney, was among the victims of this hate crime / terrorist attack on black lives by white men.

Sen. Pinckney, 41, a married father of two, had actually counseled the family of Walter Scott. The reader will remember Mr. Scott was murdered by Officer Michael Slager (on April 4th) as he was pulled over for a missing tailgate light.

President Obama  stated he and his wife knew all the members of the Emanuel congregation well, including Sen. Pinckney.

For nearly an hour, Dylann Storm Roof (a 21 year old white male supremacist) was inside the AME church. Watching his victims before killing “six [black] females and three [black] males at a prayer meeting”, Police Chief Greg Mullen said. (6)

A childhood friend of Roof alerted the the FBI. Police found Dylann’s car in Shelby, North Carolina, where Roof was arrested without physical harm. It is unclear if he was armed at the time of his arrest.  However, the police did not fear or feel threatened. Compare with when they confront unarmed young black men.

Family and friends of the shooter had this to say:

“I don’t know what was going through his head,” Kozny said. “He was a really sweet kid. He was quiet. He only had a few friends.”

Roof, however, had been to jail: State court records show a pending felony drug case against him, plus a past misdemeanour trespassing charge. He also displayed a deliberately offensive Confederate flag on his license plate.

Traditional media downplayed this as a possible hate crime, instead of calling it what it is (a terror attack). Roof knew what he was doing and let one woman go to spread the word.

This case highlights the disparities in treatment of white versus black suspects. Two white suspects apprehended for the murdering of 9 people, were arrested without the use of excessive force. The cops did not fear for their lives.

If this had been a Catholic Church where a Muslim gunman murdered 9 white people, including a priest or congressman, this would be a called a terrorist attack without a doubt. Just look at the case of the Boston Marathon.

Hate Crime vs Terrorism

Are black people now forbidden to pray?
We are not allowed negativity or anger.
Where is the positive in being murdered while praying to God?

Self-harm is frowned upon because it deprives cops of income and target practice. Medical treatment is likely to be inferior and lead to more harm, as many black people already receive poor medical care.

Residents of Charleston, and black people all over the US, are living in fear of police officers and now any white male.

What can African-Americans do, as fear builds among the black community?

Why is this a hate crime, not a terrorist attack? Why was the Boston Marathon attack a terrorist attack and not a hate crime? Is the word terrorism reserved for those of Muslim heritage?

Didn’t the Holocaust start something like that?


Definitions:

“In both crime and law, hate crime (also known as bias-motivated crime) is a usually violent, prejudice motivated crime that occurs when a perpetrator targets a victim because of his or her perceived membership in a certain social group.”

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hate_crime

“Terrorism is commonly defined as violent acts (or the threat of violent acts) intended to create fear (terror), perpetrated for an economic,[1] religious, political, or ideological goal, and which deliberately target or disregard the safety of non-combatants (e.g., neutral military personnel or civilians). Another common definition sees terrorism as political, ideological or religious violence by non-state actors.”

“In the international community, terrorism has no legally binding, criminal-law definition.[5][6]”

These Are The Victims Of The Charleston Church Shooting

Nine people were killed Wednesday night when a shooter opened fire at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina during a prayer meeting. This post will be updated as victims are identified.

What nations will become Sodom and Gomorrah?

The first question which the priest and the Levite asked was: “If I stop to help this man, what will happen to me?”; But… the good Samaritan reversed the question: “;If I do not stop to help this man, what will happen to him?” -Martin Luther King Jr.

 

 

The daily stories of police brutality have detailed more than 2.2 million American citizens behind bars and untold numbers of murders by police officers. All this is alongside worldwide conflict,  1,800 Palestinians dead and 65 Israelis dead during this latest episode of daily bloodbath,  majority of whom are children or civilians. Not to mention the recent airplane crash, possibly killing  298 passengers on MH 17. Let us not forget the missing Nigerian girls. Revelations that child molestation thrives on a multi-billion-dollar child pornography industry had my mind abuzz.

 

The thought of global warming, the air we breathe, the particles we do not see,  and the sun’s descending path toward the earth only confirm my bizarre suspicions.

 

The U.S. and Israel are taking us to Sodom and Gomorrah. Nothing good emanates from a culture that embraces inhospitality and punishes compassion.

 

Today, one percent of the world enjoys untold freedom as those above the law and accountable only to their consciences. That one percent enjoys all its rights while trampling on other people’s.

Biblical times and God ***

 

Islam is interesting, and it complements Judaism.  Jews believe in the Torah, and Muslims believe in the Qur’an.  Judaism values customs, while Islam values the spirituality of God.

 

The sharia makes living and making decisions simple if you are a Muslim man or you interpret the sharia, a qadi.  The sharia  are religious laws that govern non-religious life of Muslims.   No aspect of a person’slife is not covered in rule books.   The Qur’an is  as vague as any other Biblical book, making it open to interpretation.  However it is the infrastructure that is the source of disagreements and problems within Islam.  Islam is divisive creating  sects,  and more factions, and extremists–ALL from  the same religion.  Naturally, the Quran guide those who interpret the sharia

 

Religions are nuanced most often at first glance.  Digging deeper, we see that religions hold divergent or opposing interpretations on seemingly similar Biblical doctrines.  There are probably as many Bibles as there are religions.

 

Ironically, I think the number of canonical Bibles represents distinctly different  Gods and this continued. New religions adopt different bibles or portions of biblical books that are suitable for that religion’s purposes, customs, beliefs, and values.

 

Canonical Bibles are scriptures of God delivered by different prophets.  In ancient times, each tribe or descendent of Noah decided to adopt a different book or apply different interpretations.

 

Bibles are beautiful works that tell of the past and the future.  For us, there is no difference. In contrast to Sodom and Gomorrah, we will not need God to destroy the earth.  We will freely destroy each other in our lust and greed.

 

Come on share your thoughts  on Biblical works and religion.

Are you emotional or stoic?

Love and hate; pretty and ugly; dark and light –without one the other would not exist. Emotions are real—good or bad — and necessary to grow, evolve and to communicate with each other.

Emotions are universal. Anger is just as important as happiness yet we avoid the former and that negates achieving the latter. The ‘right’ balance is profoundly personal, dynamic and cultural.  

God is emotional. His wrath is worse than our anger. His need for control buried in rules dictated by various religions. A theologian once told me the Bible represents our limited knowledge base. The God of our Bible exists only on paper and in our minds. He used the term heuristic. Look it up….not easy to comprehend but says it all.

My point is: embrace all emotions, feel their energies, learn to deploy them like troops on a mission. God does. Emotions are life forces of energy connecting us to each other and rest of the world. Said differently, harmony with nature starts with acknowledging feelings.

Are you emotional or stoic?

WTF: Suicide in the Name of Beyism (Beyonce Religion)

national-church-of-bey1-620x400

Beyonce Worshipper Found Dead After Sacrificing Self To Singer

Taniya Hattersfield, 23, of College Park, GA was found dead Tuesday morning of self-inflicted stab wounds to the chest. Taniya Hattersfield was what appears to be a new member of the National Church of Bey, an organization based on the religion called Beyism. The religion was founded to worship the R&B superstar Beyoncé Knowles and boasts hundreds of members that call themselves Divine Divas and even view Beyoncé’s music as sacred text.

The exact details of the suicide note were not revealed, but police did indicate that Hattersfield took her own life as a sacrifice to Beyoncé at the request of the National Church of Bey. We were able to speak with the family of Hattersfield. Her mother had this shocking response: “She was crazy,” her mother said, “Plum f-ckin’ crazy! You can’t be nothin’ but crazy to take your life over some lightskin b***h that sings. I mean, I know that’s my daughter, but I’m just keepin’ it real.”

Hattersfield’s father was less vulgar, but equally shocking. “I don’t even consider that my daughter. My sperm don’t make crazy b****s that worships singers,” the father said, “just because her mama and I had a good time one Friday night don’t make her my daughter.”

Meanwhile, Taniya Hattersfield’s body has yet to be claimed by any family members. It currently sits in the hospital morgue waiting for a proper burial. If her body is not claimed, Taniya may eventually be laid to rest in a Potter’s Field, a cemetery typical for homeless people that have no known families to claim them.

The last sentence is the saddest part of this story. Taniya killed herself and no one cared. Her family is correct she took her life for a crazy reason, as far as we know; their disappointment and pain understandable with each memory a stab wound to the soul.

The need to belong and connect trap teenagers and young adults, blind and render them incapable of knowing when to ask for help.

WTF is Beyism? A religion to worship the R&B superstar Beyoncé Knowles, HUH! Beyonce do the responsible thing: Denounce this lunatic religion or replace it with a dream that is positive, attainable and keep young People of Color on paths of growth and self-efficacy.

The National Church Of Bey (Beyonce) Commercial

***

Surprising interests in this story roused curiosity around comments that would follow. Here are two: But first two remarks and an update.

  1. The first  comment surprised  only that someone would defend the insanity.

  2. The second comment inspired hope.

  • There are people with sensible values.  Right?

Update:

Beyism is the brainchild of 12 friends high on pot in Atlanta. (4)   Apparently, they are still high on pot because they plan to publish a Bible called Beyble.  This would be amusing and full of laughter had Taniya Hattersfield not killed herself in the name of  Beyism.

Was Taniya among the 12 high founders?  Probably not, founders  don’t sacrifice themselves they find  followers for that role.

Future plans for Beyism include expansion in numbers outside the Atlanta area.   My suggestion, keep the number of followers  at 12 or less and take away their pot.

Don’t speak about things you don’t understand. If you simple minded creatures would take the time the listen and comprehend Beyonce’s gospel you would know that this sacrifice was necessary. Her parents seemed to have let her down but thanks to Beyoncé she’s in a better place now.

B, with all do respect you sound foolish just like this woman and the rest of her followers. Have you ever read the bible? There is no true gospel, but the One God made! It is up to you to believe a lie, but that is the work of the devil! Heaven and hell are real-we chose that path. How dare her place herself as a god. And yes she is a :god,” but with a LITTLE g! There is only one true God above all and one day she too will bow down before Him. Have mercy on all of you. May the truth of God be revealed to you and all who are blinded! God have mercy!

The Holy See of Molesters

http://world.time.com/2014/02/05/u-n-slams-vatican-over-child-abuse-cover-up/?xid=newsletter-daily

Every day Catholicism becomes dirtier, filthier, and more hypocritical. It is like the United States system of injustice; some would say Justice but only for the elite– for African Americans and the non-elite, Justice is non-existent in the United States of America. Remember Trayvon and millions like him?

The above linked article shows how structural laws protect pedophiles in the Vatican under the auspices of God and the Catholic religion. It is legal to be a Catholic pedophile priest!

Pope Francis created a UN Commission to investigate the abuse of power and predatory behaviors of priests only to refuse their recommendations, stating they interfered the business of God.

The Commissions’ recommendations are non-binding. Do you think the following recommendations interfere with the dignity of the clergy and religious freedom as the Vatican claims?

The Catholic Church does not accept the following recommendations of the UN Commission formed by the Church.

Transparency at the Holy See – UN Commission recommended TRANSPARENCY of “internal investigations” of pedophile priests. (The Catholic Church feels that intrudes on the pedophile priest’s dignity.)

Defrocking pedophile clergies – UN Commission recommended the Catholic Church to remove ALL KNOWN or suspected child molesters. (The Catholic Church refuses as this violates the pedophiles’ rights. What about the victims?)

Educate children – UN Commission recommended the Catholic Church to empower children with knowledge and awareness of sexual abuse, particularly among priests. (The Catholic Church feels that is not in their job description)

Disgraceful! Our society is so quick to condemn children mimicking the ways of adults. We arrest children, label them molesters when the real molesters gather on Sunday at Catholic Churches all over the world.

Failure to listen and a partnership with the dark side. What do you say? Or do you say anything?
