Holy mackerel. Now all statuary and relics that depicts Christ as a white is offensive and has to come down now too.
One of the biggest gifts I got from my new faith is how it approaches anger. By praying on it, it forces you to deconstruct it, deal with it and abandon it. It’s an incredibly difficult and painful process; I am not always successful with it.
Coming from a pozzed, shitlib family as I do, I got my fair share of taunts and goading. When I broke down their behaviour patterns they always went the same way: they mocked the things that I loved, and they made fun of my goals or activities. It’s taken 56 years but I finally got there and figured it out: They didn’t hate those things... they hated me. I tried the ‘eye for an eye’ approach. I ‘turned the other cheek”. Nothing worked. I finally got smart and walked away... and they hated me all the more for it. They weren’t all that happy with themselves either, but... whatever.
So it goes with the current events I think; bringing down statues and monuments, throwing away your history and ancestry to appease your haters... none of that is going to do any good. If anything, in my experience it just makes them more demanding and contemptuous.
We shall see I suppose.
