…a wise Motto provides the missing reality taboo reason and answer for the increased violence, crime, and shootings taking place in Chicago and the USA?
The Chicago Tribune Editorial titled: Chicago’s taboo topic: to divert youths from crime, support struggling parents: provided a myriad of reasons for this past weekend over 100 shootings in Chicago.
The Purpose of This Post
Is to relate and ancient proverb, a Motto, which in my opinion is being avoided like a plague by all major media news sources, most liberal politicians as a taboo issue and the missing taboo reason not mentioned in the Editorial, that misses the mark to reduce the sad numbers of shootings being reported in Chicago and USA?
King Solomon Proverb
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverb 22:6)
‘The Family That Prays Together Stays Together’
What’s My Point?
The following is a comment made in a Citizen Tom post”
“There has been no greater guilt imposed upon man than that imposed by organized religion in the name of God… simply to get compliance.
My point is shooters apparently have never been taught to fear the consequences of God’s Commandment: Tthou shalt not kill.
In My Opinion
When the Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional to teach the Ten Commandments in any public secular school, apparently youths shooting and killing each other now have less fear of man’s Laws than Gods Laws.
Based on the shootings taking place for youths not to fear the consequences of their actions will be judged when they die and are judged by their Maker.
In other words, what is apparent is liberal laws are not as effective a deterrent to youths who have attended a public secular school instead of a private religious school in grades 1 to 8, the most formative years in their lives.
What we are experiencing now is a generation of youths which have grown up, many in single family households, which in my opinion can be considered collateral damage we will continue to experience if they are allowed to be freed without consequences for never having the opportunity to be taught in depth understanding of the wisdom and love in the Bible and the Ten Commandments.
In my opinion, voters need to elect legislators to pass legislation “to support” funding sooner school choice and/or school vouchers in Illinois and other States in the USA, so that in time, the shootings will lessen.
