Today's first reading at Mass made me think of Robert Stacy McCain...

…and his trou­bles with Charles Johnson

The wicked say: Let us beset the just one, because he is obnox­ious to us; he sets him­self against our doings, reproaches us for trans­gres­sions of the law and charges us with vio­la­tions of our training.

Let us see whether his words be true; let us find out what will hap­pen to him. For if the just one be the son of God, God will defend him and deliver him from the hand of his foes.

With revile­ment and tor­ture let us put the just one to the test that we may have proof of his gen­tle­ness and try his patience.

Let us con­demn him to a shame­ful death; for accord­ing to his own words. God will take care of him (Wis­dom 2:12, 1720)

This is ironic as Robert keeps bring­ing up the fol­low­ing meme when refer­ring to Charles:

how’s that “pray­ing to Noth­ing” work­ing out for you?

Mean­while John­son stan­dard answer:

white suprema­cist blogger

This is why Robert Stacy has and will keep the upper hand in this fight. When Charles gets hit he has to deal with it as an attack.

When Robert Stacy gets hit, as a Chris­t­ian he con­sid­ers it just part of the job descrip­tion.

BTW As Robert Stacy is a protes­tant it is unlikely that his church rec­og­nizes the book of wis­dom as most protes­tant churches removed it from their bibles post ref­or­ma­tion but the verse fits. He would likely be more com­fort­able with this one.

…and his troubles with Charles Johnson

The wicked say: Let us beset the just one, because he is obnoxious to us; he sets himself against our doings, reproaches us for transgressions of the law and charges us with violations of our training.

Let us see whether his words be true; let us find out what will happen to him. For if the just one be the son of God, God will defend him and deliver him from the hand of his foes.

With revilement and torture let us put the just one to the test that we may have proof of his gentleness and try his patience.

Let us condemn him to a shameful death; for according to his own words. God will take care of him (Wisdom 2:12, 17-20)

This is ironic as Robert keeps bringing up the following meme when referring to Charles:

how’s that “praying to Nothing” working out for you?

Meanwhile Johnson standard answer:

white supremacist blogger

This is why Robert Stacy has and will keep the upper hand in this fight. When Charles gets hit he has to deal with it as an attack.

When Robert Stacy gets hit, as a Christian he considers it just part of the job description.

BTW As Robert Stacy is a protestant it is unlikely that his church recognizes the book of wisdom as most protestant churches removed it from their bibles post reformation but the verse fits. He would likely be more comfortable with this one.
