What follows is my heart felt response to another blogger and advocate of good.
Thank you very much for your kind suggestion and consideration, as well for your thoughtfulness in making this gesture to me!
The sad thing about the main stream media is they too often sensationalize to exploit something as if normal business as usual practice or standard operating procedure! It being a billion dollar business or industry it’s doing so for purely monetary or political purposes falling in line with the ruling elite or some very powerful influential individuals, and not acting as any agent of public edification or some virtuous body of positivity to foster and improve anything; they only use and discard moving on to the next sensationalism. Look what the George Floyd media circus was really all about and how it enabled mobs to go out and victimize or destroy with no accountability! All over a man that was a criminal thug drug dealer and user with a long rap sheet never doing anything to better himself as a human being or help others in need as a charitable person would but instead selling dope to others that kills a sinful act; an action sanctified by media that caused losses in the multiple billions of dollars and death to many innocent persons! All of that while these domestic terror organizations like BLM and Antifa by generating so much mayhem further sensationalizing a story for the media to exploit further while these criminal perpetrators bring in billions of dollars of revenue support to use as they wish for personal material gain buying exclusive million dollar homes or to use in conducting further terrorist plans and fund other elicit operations like some kind of giant Mafioso crime syndicate organization. Comparing all that to a child getting his knuckles wrapped with a ruler or some other corporal punishment many decades ago hardly seems like a serious problem to be bringing to the fore in the midst of all this current mayhem; unless there is a hidden nefarious agenda or something in play, which there is; a very dark and sinister one! This agenda is currently and will be moving forward causing even more damage than all of the George Floyd riots did; and because of these hidden agendas or purposes, some of the most deadly nefarious persons are being allowed to get away with perpetrating such evil upon the naïve or confused public, all in the name of power and money.
Right now, today, we could point out instances of child neglect or abuse like the young girl that was paddled by teachers in a Florida elementary school an old corporal punishment practice; for her being totally unruly! So we do observe by this example how there are still indeed things happening which demonstrate how many things which are promoted or allowed as just everyday news are being promulgated throughout society by the major media outlets which are damaging people’s minds, especially the children with a toxic soup of negativity and confusing mixed messages; or even hidden agendas to condition the public, CIA stuff! We can point out how the Bible states in Scripture to spare the rod is to spoil the child; which sounds old fashioned to today’s let them get away with whatever appeasing mindset but what the matter boils down to is discipline and proper guidance which all children and adults must learn and abide by; or we end up with BLM and Antifa crazies running loose; a corrupted and enabled society! We are all now witnesses to a steady stream of propaganda that is not only damaging individual minds and hearts with poison; but the whole of society. Child abuse is happening right out in the open and all in the name of so called diversity acceptance and other such smoke screens for nefarious agendas. The Devil is sure getting his due today! I include an article I wrote which clearly points this out.
The Devil Gets His Due from the Devil’s Advocates
As to what I was originally saying about Native Americans my basis of commendation to many of them is that they are a people who had to accept huge changes that came to a land as humanity evolves, but have complained the least! And when many of them were in their old cultures or practices and some still are today, a virtuous noble people, that in my opinion always deserve credit and appreciation for setting good examples; like Jim Thorpe did, and multitudes of others! They grew to appreciate opportunity, and accept things they must facing adversity while therefore making the best of any given situation; so unlike what George Floyd did during his whole adult life of deprivation, being an ingrate and despot of society! I hate to use such a cliché but it fits too well so I must; you make your bed so you have to lay in it!
I would love to help Naïve Americans if at all possible and will if given that opportunity but not by attacking anyone or our Great Nation under God! Here I want to insert a bit of wonderful information that is a great testimony to my point I make here about Native People’s in the North American Continent!
“St. Kateri Tekakwitha is the first Native American to be recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church. She was born in 1656, in the Mohawk village of Ossernenon. Her mother was an Algonquin, who was captured by the Mohawks and who took a Mohawk chief for her husband.
She contracted smallpox as a four-year-old child which scarred her skin. The scars were a source of humiliation in her youth. She was commonly seen wearing a blanket to hide her face. Worse, her entire family died during the outbreak. Kateri Tekakwitha was subsequently raised by her uncle, who was the chief of a Mohawk clan.
Kateri was known as a skilled worker, who was diligent and patient. However, she refused to marry. When her adoptive parents proposed a suitor to her, she refused to entertain the proposal. They punished her by giving her more work to do, but she did not give in. Instead, she remained quiet and diligent. Eventually they were forced to relent and accept that she had no interest in marriage.
At age 19, Kateri Tekakwitha converted to Catholicism, taking a vow of chastity and pledging to marry only Jesus Christ. Her decision was very unpopular with her adoptive parents and their neighbors. Some of her neighbors started rumors of sorcery. To avoid persecution, she traveled to a Christian native community south of Montreal.
According to legend, Kateri was very devout and would put thorns on her sleeping mat. She often prayed for the conversion of her fellow Mohawks. According to the Jesuit missionaries that served the community where Kateri lived, she often fasted and when she would eat, she would taint her food to diminish its flavor. On at least one occasion, she burned herself. Such self-mortification was common among the Mohawk.
Kateri was very devout and was known for her steadfast devotion. She was also very sickly. Her practices of self-mortification and denial may not have helped her health. Sadly, just five years after her conversion to Catholicism, she became ill and passed away at age 24, on April 17, 1680.
Her name, Kateri, is the Mohawk form of Catherine, which she took from St. Catherine of Siena.
St. Kateri Tekakwitha was canonized by Pope Benedict XVI on Oct. 21, 2012. She is the patroness of ecology and the environment, people in exile and Native Americans.” catholic.org
All those rioters were actually encouraged by MSM (media) and government officials who promoted the entire George Floyd evil media circus of debauchery as though a good thing; have condemned themselves to great suffering here and in the next world; I assure you by the humble saintly name of St. Kateri Tekakwitha! They should all be cowering in shame and fear of God’s judgment, but they have none; as they have been touched and given the mark of not just sin but evil!
I appreciate the consideration and thoughtfulness on your part my friend.
God bless all involved in these benevolent aspirations to do good for others.
Brother in Christ Jesus,
Lawrence Morra III

Thanks Brother Joseph; a bit of aggravation for a few days but what should we expect in the man-made world but difficulties from time to time! Much worse things are happening around the globe this instant!
Our prayers help. Amen.
Anyone who’s convicted of that many felonies has undoubtedly committed hundreds or even thousands of felony crimes in their life. Unless of course, they’re the dumbest criminal in existence. Something to think about.

Absolutely; but now we have a government that not only panders to this behavior and condones it but are actively promoting it all the way down to preschool children via the actual AG of the DOJ with his son-in-law’s book deal for CRT in the schools; making big bucks and making a lot of messed up kids in the process! Great stuff this administration is cramming in their heads to bring on a Marxist dictatorship! Venezuela anyone?
