Can GOP vigilantism succeed in American democracy?

Republicans are against multi-cultural democracy, and seemingly Christian Right Evangelicals and White Nationalists Terrorists only care about winning elections by any means necessary, and not protecting the democratic oriented voting process. Grievance politics and personalized White victimization have become their battle-cry. America, know this: when any nation state betrays her stated values and governing principles, and openly embraces violent extremism that nation is headed for eternal damnation. Sadly, in the State of Texas, White Nationalists vigilantism has moved into the abortion area, and this is the first-step toward becoming a confused lawless oriented society. Hence, we must label the White Nationalists/Supremacists and Domestic Extremists that attacked the Capitol on January 6, 2021 as anti-democratic Terrorists.

Democracy is for a spiritually enlightened and morally intelligent citizenry, because democracy is based upon the principles of “rule by the people, for the people, and of the people.” Thus, democracy is the practice or principles of social equality of citizenship, dignity of the individual, legal methods of resolving social conflicts, and most of all, encourages citizenship participation, not citizenship restrictions. This is why voter restriction laws proposed by GOP controlled state legislatures are so ungodly abhorrent.

The “Black Lives Matter Movement” grew out of the vigilante mentality of America’s law enforcement constabularies, because laws were not equally being enforced as established by police policies, procedures and standardized practices. Apparently, law enforcement practices are primarily based upon skin tone.  Hence, law enforcement officers allow their racial/ethnic prejudices and biases to take priority in enforcing laws; not legal statutes and lawful procedures. Professional law enforcement officers have difficulties in enforcing laws without violating the citizen civil rights of Blacks and other ethnic minorities. They are supposed to be trained law enforcement professionals. Question: how then can we expect private citizens to enforce Texas abortion laws without having violent altercations and serious consequences? This is Pandora’s Box to the nth degree! If this can be done in relationship to abortion rights, and precedence is established then there is no limit to the insanity and vigilante mentality. There is something about law and order that should be sacred. Too many manmade laws are not good for soul salvation. For example, the Hebraic Tradition initially had over 6,000 laws. Moses had a spiritual encounter with God on Mt. Sinai. God condensed the Hebraic law tradition into the Ten Commandments. Jesus Christ condensed the Ten Commandments into the Two Great Commandments, and we cannot or we simply refuse to live by Two Great Commandments: “Hear, O’Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord, and thou shalt love the Lord thou God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and all thy strength, this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.” (Mark 12: 29-31). America, we should never forget the “eight” other commandments. Know this: abortion is one such judgment-choice that should be left to God, the female, and the physician, because “So then every one of us shall give account of himself to God.” (Roman 14: 12). Amen!
