Spectator to Genocide in Darfur

DarfurBurningWorld magazine has run an important article on the work being done by former Marine captain Brian Steidle to get the United States involved in the crisis in Darfur. The atrocities that are happening there are just too awful to believe.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then you need to read Priya Abraham's piece, "Spectator to Genocide." Then you need to go fill out an electronic postcard to President Bush at the "Save Darfur" website: http://www.savedarfur.org.

Proverbs 24:10-12
10 If you are slack in the day of distress,
Your strength is limited.
11 Deliver those who are being taken away to death,
And those who are staggering to slaughter,
O hold them back .
12 If you say, "See, we did not know this,"
Does He not consider it who weighs the hearts?
And does He not know it who keeps your soul?
And will He not render to man according to his work?

For readers in the Dallas area, Captain Brian Steidle will be lecturing here on April 26 at the Dallas Peace Center

  1. I have looked at the theme and that plugin that you were speaking of. Not really ‘looked’ looked, but kind of glanced. From what I can tell I would have to study both pretty well in order to make this specific theme available for that plugin. Which I could do if you are really interested. But I don’t know how hard they are (either the theme or the plugin), so I don’t know how long it would take me…

  2. Thanks for this alert, Denny. There’s hardly anything that gets me more sad about this creation gone bad than people hurting, especially at the hands of other people. So the book of Habakkuk does my heart and mind good when I’m reminded of such stuff–the creation is bound to get worse, and the trouble will hit even my own backyard, but none of that means God has quit being sovereign. In the meantime, let us press on to help the helpless.
