Complicit: involved with others in an illegal activity or wrongdoing. (Google.com)
Am I complicit for not speaking out against wrong? Good question.
Daily, I want to scream out, “What is wrong with you people?”
Who are the “you people?” Those who support president #45. Those who see nothing wrong with sexual predation, pedophilia, as long as their party or agenda moves forward. Those who espouse their religious values and morals yet turn their back on the golden rule, their own religious values for personal gain, for love of political party instead of their god or their country or their spouses, their children, their morals.
I was raised Christian in a specific church. I converted to another Christian sect. I no longer belong to any cult that espouses that their sect is the “real” one favored by god. Instead the spirituality of nature and humans fill me with awe, peace, and passion. Christians who tell me they support this politician or that one, disregarding their misdeeds, their disregard to the ten commandments or the golden rule, well they aren’t really Christian but instead are swayed by the greed of power or money or both.
Other religious beliefs-I feel the same. If they ignore their religious teachings for their personal gain of power or money or both, well they are probably liars like their Christian counterparts.
Those who have no religious following at least have one honest characteristic going for them; however, that doesn’t mean they are free from greed. Nope. Greed-for anything is unacceptable. And that is what I see as what is wrong with our world, particularly in USA at this time. Sad.
Oops, I guess I am greedy for honesty, trustworthy politicians and leaders, for truth, and for decency. Hmm. . .now that is a conundrum. . .sadly.
