Regarding the Violence at Fort Hood


There's a lot of talk on the airwaves and on the internet that tends to paint all persons of Arabic descent and Islamic faith with a broad brush.

It would be wise to remember the words of the Prophet Jeremiah at this time:

"In those days people will no longer say,
'The fathers have eaten sour grapes,
and the children's teeth are set on edge.'
Instead, everyone will die for his own sin;
whoever eats sour grapes—
his own teeth will be set on edge."
(Jeremiah 31:29-30)

One lone Muslim of Arabic descent ate sour grapes and responded with inexecusable violence.

There are millions of other Muslims of Arabic descent who want nothing to do with either his sour grapes or his violence.

Right on target, as it were.

Do you also discuss instances where a Christian of American descent "eats sour grapes" and then murders one or more persons in this same manner?

You certainly have lots of opportunities to do so, inasmuch as the vast majority of murderers in this country are Christians of American descent!
