Why are you so afraid of me?
Do you not believe in your own convictions, values, ideals, statements?
“________ people are wrong, stupid, evil, whiners,biased, dishonest,dirty, treacherous. We know what is right.”
Why does it matter to you if I disagree?
Why does it matter to you if I read or question?
How does it harm you if I hold a sign or march in a group?
You have power and money and influence.
I have none of those things.
You say you are helping me, you are protecting me, making my life better, that if I disagree with you I should move away, I am ungrateful.
I have no money, no power, no influence….I am no threat to your strength, your control, your dominance.
And yet, you fear me.
Because I will not be cruel. I will not condemn others. I will reach out to those needing help and I will show decency and I will work hard to be kind and I will not be a slave to money or greed and I will learn about others and I will work for peace among all nations, for all people.
And he said, “Why? What evil has he done?”
But they shouted all the more, “Let him be crucified!”
