Sometimes I just don’t understand the world that we live in. I’m confused. For months now, I have only asked that justice be done in the Trayvon Martin case. That’s it. If the wheels of justice turn and decide that George Zimmerman should go free, I can live with that. I just want justice to be served. Now, if you’re on trial for second-degree murder and could be put away for an extremely long period of time, how do you lie to the judge? I don’t get it. How did you figure that the courts wouldn’t find out that there had been a ton of money donated through an extremely public website? So, because he lied to the judge, Zimmerman is now back in jail. (BTW, isn’t Zimmerman’s father a judge? Shouldn’t he have known better than to lie?) Things for George Zimmerman just go from bad to worse. His wife has just been arrested on perjury charges.
I’m really disappointed when pastors stand up and preach hate. The Bible is a huge book. There is a lot of information in the Bible. There are stories about every human failing – greed, incest, envy and many more. There are stories about murder. There are stories about rage. But, when you stand back and try and look at what the Bible is telling us, the Bible is about love. The Bible is about our love for God. The Bible is about God’s love for us and about our love for each other. This is simple. This is Christianity 101. Maybe Pastor Charles L. Worley simply skipped that class.
For the people of Liberia, I’m positive this took too long. Finally, Charles Taylor has been convicted of aiding and abetting war crimes.

Taylor, 64, has been on trial for almost five years.
“This is an incredibly significant decision,” Elise Keppler from the campaign group Human Rights Watch told the BBC. (more…)
