If you say, “Behold, we did not know this,”
Does not he who weighs the heart perceive it?
Does not he who keeps watch over your soul know it?
And will he not repay man according to his work? (Proverbs 24:11-12)
I am saddened by the blatant disinterest and purposeful distancing of those who are either too fearful or too comfortable in their cozy little cocoons to voice their disgust, take a stand, and be heard! Sing louder, church, so you drown out the cries that arise from the evil environment that surrounds you … until one day you face the same evil while the church just sings and sings. No respect for life will one day very soon filter down to the sick and the elderly. Think I’m kidding? Stay silent, keep singing … la, la, la … and you may sadly find out.
