The acid test in France

A reader pointed something out about the four female American college students attacked acid thrown at them by a woman in Marseilles, France.

They were from that part of the country that young, hip, Marxist liberals put down as Jesusland back when Bush 43 was president.

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing's replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.
And it's not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.
 -- Barack Obama.


How wrong this mental midget was.

Thank God.

They are not bitterly hanging on to their religion.

They are Christian.

From the Associated Press:
One of the students, Courtney Siverling, said in a post on Facebook that she was not injured and that all the women are "safe."
"I pray that the attacker would be healed from her mental illness in the name of Jesus and receive the forgiveness and salvation that can only come from Him," said Siverling, of Chester Springs, Pennsylvania.
And there was this:
Michelle Krug said she was one of two who got hit in the eye with "a weak solution of hydrochloric acid." She asked friends to "please consider thinking about/praying for our attacker" so she can receive help.
"Mental illness is not a choice and should not be villainized," Krug, of White Plains, New York, wrote, adding she planned to continue her "incredible opportunity" to study in France.
Kelsey Kosten said on Facebook that all the women are doing much better and that she is looking forward to returning to Copenhagen to continue her studies abroad. Her father, Phillip Kosten, told The Boston Globe at his Winchester, Massachusetts, home that his daughter is "fine" and asked for privacy for his family.
How many people would turn the other cheek, even as it stung from hydrochloric acid?

Christianity is pretty powerful stuff. I can see why so many communists and other non-believers hate and fear it.

This nation was founded by Christians. Yes, there were people already here, but they did not protect free speech, freedom of religion, and all the other precious liberties God granted us.

If that shames or embarrasses you, then I pray for you.

  1. Those girls are better Christians than me. I would have a tough time praying for someone who threw acid on me. If truly mentally ill I could forgive, but that's a shaky definition these days.

  2. they are pathological (the girls) such creatures do not exist outside of "zoos". that's not Christianity, it's suicide. sending arms and training to the ME christians would be an example of christianity, burning down every PP clinic another. but of course our brave "christians" do none of those things.

    1. Your concern is:

  3. Me, I got another take on it.

    "Grant us Thy help till backward they are driven;
    Grant them Thy truth, that they may be forgiven;"

  4. Those girls may well be better Christians than I am (all I really know is that I am a sinner,) and I don't know how Jesus would handle this situation. I do know that I'm not Him.

    I pray not for forgiveness of the attacker but that the girls attacked make a full recovery.

    Their attacker, if my assumption is correct, is a creature of evil; may all such as he or she burn in Hell for the evil that they have done.

    The media has said that the attacker is mentally ill. Since the media never tells the truth when a lie will do, I don't believe this. The attacker is of course another muslim, doing what those savages do at the behest of their evil ideology.

    I do not wish them well.

  5. Why turn the other cheek when you know the attacker will just smack you on that one too? FOrgive them if you want to, but only after they have done some penance that shows they understand the harm/damage they caused and can in some way negate or rectify it. If no penance, then punishment.

    1. Turning the other cheek is a misunderstood thing. You might have been hit by accident the first time , but it is no accident the second. Thinking of the bar scene from Happiest Millionaire where he bumps the glass of the angry gent at the bar who warns, "do it again and you won't be going anywhere."
      "Clancy, two more."

  6. My wife and I spent two months visiting and staying in Marseille about a decade and a half ago. We loved the city, its food, and its people, who were very friendly and treated us well in every way imaginable. Our apartment was adjacent to the Old Port, on the edge of the Arab district, the train station being a short metro ride and 20 minute walk away. That said, once when my wife was walking unaccompanied through the streets, she was literally punched by an old Arab woman, who (as far as we could surmise) didn't think it was proper for my wife to be walking and shopping on her own without a male companion.
