Bombs, Heartache and Peace

On Saturday 13th April a bomb exploded on a bus in Pakistan killing at least nine people.

On Sunday 14th April a US drone attack killed four people in a village in Pakistan.

On Monday 15th April eight people were killed by a bomb blast in Afghanistan.

On Monday 15th April three people are killed by a bomb blast in Boston, USA.

On Monday 15th April at least fifty five people are killed by bomb explosions in Iraq.


Woman and children, fathers and mothers, sisters and brothers.

People.

People made in God's image.

Murdered.

We need to change our ways.

Violence breeds violence.  Murder generates more murder.  When we kill we are changed and something within us dies.

When one human kills another we strip them and ourselves of our God given humanity and identity.

Peace will never come through our violence.

'Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.'

'Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you that you may be called children of your Father in Heaven.'

'If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.'

'Father forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.'

'And with a loud cry, Jesus gave up his spirit and died.'

Jesus has given his life so that we might live and be people who give life, work for peace, pray and seek the Kingdom of God.  We look for the day when swords will be beaten into ploughshares, and today, by the grace and Spirit of God, we work towards that future reality.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should not marry American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

I encourage ALL American men to NEVER MARRY American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

A few more reasons to stay away from American women?

-30 percent of American women take psychiatric drugs.
-25 percent of women under the age of 30 have at least one STD.
-85 percent of divorces in America are INITIATED by women, thus women are responsible for the vast majority of divorces.
-70 percent of criminals in America were raised by single mothers, thus feminism is responsible for most crime in America.
-60 percent of American women are fat, overweight, according to government statistics

If you want to get married, find a nice foreign girl from Asia, or South America, or Russia/Eastern Europe. DO NOT MARRY AN AMERICAN WOMAN UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!

Give American women the husband they deserve- NONE!

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!
