The world is in a big mess. That isn't news. It just needs to be said. The worst criminals control governments, finance, industry - just about everything, including religious institutions.
The worst criminals attend churches, mosques and synagogues, bowing and scraping and singing to the Creator while they continue robbing, poisoning, pimping and killing.
No one wants to speak out. Ordinary folks feel - and are - so powerless that we have numbed ourselves and do not even allow ourselves to think about these things. Sodom and Gomorrah were just symbols of what was yet to come - our world today.
A doom and gloom message ? On Christmas Day ! Shame on me for speaking the awful truth. Call me Jeremiah.
Or call me Diogenes as I earnestly seek leaders who have justice written on their minds and hearts and only need a great public outcry to cause them to step up to the proverbial plate and save us all - not in some ethereal paradise, but here on this one and only precious Earth.
Jeremiah 31: 31-34
