“We stand with you to say that the good in this world far outweighs the evil, that our common humanity transcends our differences, and that our most effective response to terror and to hatred is compassion, it’s unity, and it’s love.” —Attorney General Loretta Lynch
When in private, Ms. Lynch is entitled to her personal philosophy. However, as Attorney General, her primary duty to the country is to the unbiased enforcement of American laws. The purpose of law enforcement is to keep U.S. citizens safe. Yet, that’s not what’s she’s doing or advocating. She’s acting like Bill Murray in “Groundhog Day”: a fantasy in which consequences don’t matter, and the same day can be repeated.
Truly, the Obama administration makes burying one’s head in the sand a real art form. Particularly when it comes to the scourge they still won’t name: radical Islamic terrorism. Unfortunately, that blind, deaf and dumb political posture leaves their derrières exposed to the world. While that’s fine for them, the rest of us don’t have that luxury. When we frequent public places in cities like Orlando it’s without armed Secret Service bodyguards.
By all means, the surviving victims of the Pulse massacre should forgive the circumstances — to the extent that they are able to. Why? Because carrying the trauma forward as emotional baggage won’t be helpful to the desire to heal. Likewise is carrying an understandable bias forward as a grievance concerning, for example, Omar Mateen, or, more globally, the Islamic religion. Specifically, Christ’s advice about “turning the other cheek” is about the serenity achieved through forgiveness and acceptance. Indeed, forgiveness is a vehicle that releases the victimized from very human psychological pain. Nevertheless, forgiveness doesn’t mean forgetting. Or in Ms. Lynch’s pea-brain: obliviously ignoring.
Loretta Lynch is the Orwellian poster child for “evil flourishing when good [women] do nothing.” She’s a coward unworthy of her position and should resign. Love never cowers before barbarity or wickedness:
“Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” —1 Corinthians 13:6-7 NIV
As Scripture clearly indicates, love always champions the innocent and defenseless. That’s apparently something forked tongue Loretta Lynch is unwilling to do.
