I am always late to the party and as I usually avoid “News” I have only just read of the Manchester Bomb attack.
I know quite a few people in Manchester but so far have not heard of anyone I might know that was hurt, or worse. I am actually feeling a little nervous about opening Facebook. But the phone has not rung so that’s at least something.
Two things struck me more than others:
First: While this is a definite terrorist attack and the blame seems to have been laid squarely with ISIS, I have not read anything stating that this attack was religiously motivated.
Second: A former South African, Church of England Dean Rogers Govender is quoted as saying: “We prayed in the street.”
Somehow, this seems not only utterly trite and pointless, but also, under the circumstances, utterly revolting.
When, if ever, will people start to call a spade a spade?
Unless of course this all part of ‘God’s Plan?’
Don’t you just love religion?
