The Wiener Tragedy: Anthony and Huma...

It is not only a tragedy, it is appalling that anyone would allow such despicable treatment of a woman at the hands of such a deeply disturbed man.

What Christian, what Jew allows the public flogging of what is obviously a helpless woman at the hands of an abusive husband?

He too has obviously been deprived of serious religious caring.

It does not matter that she is a Muslim.

It matters that We are Christians or Jews.

Where are the Christian Conservative or Jewish Women rising to her defense?

Where are the Christian Conservative Men or Jewish Men rising to her defense?

Many are laughing at a family that is unraveling, literally in front of the entire world.

Most of us know they will not get any help from their political cronies.  They will be shunned, reviled, ridiculed, and left to fend for themselves in the cold, political, desert night.

Can one of us approach them with forgiveness?  Are we so shallow that we fear being rejected by them?  Are we so callously political that we are to revel in their misfortune?

I say refuse to shun them.

Forgive them.  Offer them help. Wisdom.

Anthony's very public abuse of his wife is the very public abuse of all women.

These are two lost souls. Who are we to cast stones against them?

We, Christians, have a New Testament to which we subscribe.

We are not the people who cast away Lives into the garbage heap.

Let others revel in the tragedy of another.

Pray for them:
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.  
For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’  
“Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?  
When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 
When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 
The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’
We are the American Conservative Cultural Revolution.

This is what we do. This is who we are.

Help Them.
