    •  ...well, not the way they see it... (0+ / 0-)

      ...and I totally get it. These were older women, if not in their 80's darn close.

      The world they grew up in is gone. They grew up in a white world. And let's just be honest with ourselves ----> you, I and any white person in their 50's or later definitely also grew up in a "white world."

      These ladies are soon to be gone. They aren't some activists out there. They have been seduced by what they've been taught to understand.

      To them there is definitely good vs. evil. Each of us is infused by a soul...but we are also controlled by spirit.  The spirit is either "the godly spirit" of "satan's spirit." They honestly see the whole entirety of what takes place on the world stage via humans as the supreme battle between the  two opposing "spirits" (i.e. holy ghost vs. the anti-holy ghost).

      They weren't really specifically inspired by Obama dying as much as it would be good triumphing over evil. Obama is just a puppet...we all are in their eyes...infused by the "right spirit" of the "wrong spirit."

      They've been taught this their whole lives...it's only gotten weirder and weirder as what they grew up with, in religious terms, has been hijacked by the Dominionists.

      These two older ladies want to be on the "right side" as they approach their deaths.

      I have compassion for them...twisted as what their pastor teaches them to believe...and pray for...

      Ignorance is bliss only for the ignorant. The rest of us must suffer the consequences. -7.38; -3.44
