An Odd “coincidence” & a Modest Post Dallas Suggestion

You have heard that it was said to your ancestors, ‘You shall not kill; and whoever kills will be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment, and whoever says to his brother, ‘Raqa,’ will be answerable to the Sanhedrin, and whoever says, ‘You fool,’ will be liable to fiery Gehenna. Therefore, if you bring your gift to the altar, and there recall that your brother has anything against you, leave your gift there at the altar, go first and be reconciled with your brother, and then come and offer your gift.

Matthew 5:21-24

Before I fell asleep yesterday afternoon the most outrageous thing that had happened Thursday was the testimony of the chief of the FBI whose assertions, prevarications and evasions combined with there being no record of Hillary’s questioning bothered and astounded me.

Then I woke up when my wife got home and looked at my computer to find that snipers had killed four police officers during a blm protest and frankly I was furious, not only at the murders but at the point out country has reached and those who have or their own gain pushed us in this direction. These tweets were typical

For reasons I can’t explain It suddenly dawned on me that my angry reaction was in fact a temptation so I invoked my guardian angel and tweeted an odd fact.

and suddenly everything changed, both in terms of my emotions and in terms of my tweets.

Take a look at my timeline before and after 1:58 AM and look at the difference. I submit and suggest that to faithful christians in general and catholics in particular that is a “feature”.

Perhaps it is time for us as a nation to consider the advantages of turning back to Christ and the teaching that goes like this:

Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life remaining in him. The way we came to know love was that he laid down his life for us; so we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers. If someone who has worldly means sees a brother in need and refuses him compassion, how can the love of God remain in him? Children, let us love not in word or speech but in deed and truth.

1 John 3:15-18

I further submit and suggest that invoking not only our guardian angels but the guardian angels of each other would be a rather good idea for us as individuals and for our nation.

Like all disciplines in life this would be only the first step.  For this to have a long term effect it will take time and there will be resistance both physically by those who stand to benefit from continued national anger and spiritually by the other side, so we should not overestimate the instant effect of this (that is in fact another temptation).

But if we want to change the direction of our country we have to change our own direction and this is the way to do it.


Well the year his half over and despite a horrible June (My worst traffic month in many years) We are still way over our pace at this time last year and slightly over the previous six months here at DaTechGuy Blog the first six months of last year.

DaTipJar however continues to lag, sitting at just over 21% of our annual goal or less that half of where we might hope to be by now.

I’d like to think we do good work here If you’d like to help us keep up the pace please consider hitting DaTipJar
