2 wrongs don't make a right
Early Wednesday morning Caleb got a fire call. By the time the dept. got there the fire was rolling. It took them 11 hours to put it out. It was one of the biggest fires they ever put out. Now this is Hinckley. So this was a huge half million dollar home. The bigger it is the harder it is to put out. When they got it under control, they inspected the area to see if it was arson. IT WAS. They found definite proof. There were words marked in paint on the sidewalk saying "die fags" and "there's more to come". Turns out that the house was owned by 2 gay men. Now, I don't agree with the gay lifestyle and yes, it clearly states in the Bible that it is a sin. But setting someones house on fire because of it? In my book, that's even worse. Jesus told us to love and lead others to Him by showing them love. The men weren't home at the time, so noone was physically hurt. But I can't imagine the emotional pain that is inflicting them. In no way am I supporting their decision to live as a gay couple but I really feel for them. God loves all of us. Hinckley has had their fair share of arson fires. A couple of years ago environmental terrorists set fire to a field full of farmland equipment and wrote on a huge sign "stop using up the land in Hinckley to build your rich homes" or something to that effect. I guess that they were planning on using this land to build a home development and some people decided to to stop them by setting that land on fire? What the heck? You just ruined the land anyway. I just don't understand people. Why do they think it's OK to set fire to someone's home because they are living a lifestyle that they don't agree with? Why do they think it's OK to write death threats? Why do they think it's OK to try and hurt or kill? They don't have the right! I guess I'll never understand. But God does. And someday, He will come back.
