The Covington Students Broke the Commandments

This week the Covington Students were excoriated in the media. They broke the commandments. We better know them and be careful or we will be next. What are they?commandment-1431061_640 image by aitoff, courtesy of Pixabay

1. Thou shalt not be white:

It doesn’t matter where your relatives came from, or whether they held slaves or not. Or perhaps your relatives fought and died to set the slaves free. The facts are not important.  If you are white, you will be judged by the color of your skin and will be forced to carry the collective guilt of others of your race.

2. Thou shalt not be male:

Masculinity itself is a crime, it is now toxic in some circles. Never mind the fact that no one would exist without a male figure in their lives or that the influence of a father can be very beneficial.  Being born a male is now something to be discriminated against.

3. Thou shalt not believe in God:

Any belief in a personal God is tantamount to heresy. The secular humanists will portray you as stupid and brainless if you believe in a higher being.

4. Thou shalt not support the current president:

Anyone caught supporting the current president must be punished, period. No exceptions.

5. Thou shalt not go to a private school:

As flawed as the public school system is, you must be punished if you choose an alternative. You will be targeted and condemned as “privileged” if you go to one, especially if it is a religious institution. Never mind the fact that many who go to these places of learning have scholarships because they cannot afford it.

6. Thou shalt not be pro-life:

Anyone not supporting abortion is to be punished. You must support abortion on demand up to and including nine months.

7. Thou shalt not be from a state that has a high poverty level and lower educational scores:

If so, you will be judged as ignorant and bigoted.

8. Thou shalt not be a teenager:

If so, your behavior will be held to a higher standard than the behavior of the adults in whatever situation you are in.

Are these all of these commandments? I don’t know. We must all be careful because if we are ever placed in the limelight and we do not fit the current orthodoxy or line up with whatever the “group think” is at the time, we will be punished on social media.

Ask yourself, are you breaking any of these commandments?

  1. I don’t disagree but it’s almost too easy to come to these conclusions. I would be hesitant to say that being a white male is anywhere near as difficult as just about any other person in America. In the 1980s, I too was a young white, Catholic male who didn’t support the president. Did my political leanings lead some to conclude negatively about me? Likely. Did the young Catholic boys deserve the treatment they received from the media attention? Absolutely not. They also were not quite as much a victim as they wish to be portrayed after the initial media frenzy. What’s missing overall, I think, is balance. Media has long been quick hitting and unthinking but adding the current technology into the picture makes that more dangerous, I think. So let’s not quite portray them as innocent bystanders but let’s also not paint them as thugs.
    Let’s do as Christ teaches. Love one another. Even those whom we find difficult to love because, as he taught us, “they know not what they do.”

    • Love your comment and I agree with a lot of what you said. I hate the fact that social medial allows people to rush to judgment. I am against identity politics and people judging people by the color of their skin, be it white, black or brown. Yes, we do need to forgive them, but not before we call out the media for not doing their job. Thank you so much for weighing in!

  2. I’m grateful for Tim’s comment and your reply. We just need to love! And thank you, I had to pull out my dictionary and look up the word “excoriated”, proving that you can learn something new everyday, if you are open and look for those opportunities. No I have to figure out how to use it in a sentence today. 🙂

  3. Amen, well said! They (the leftists) sure would hate me then! 🙂 I’m white, I’m a man, I believe in God, I support the current president (voted for him and will vote for him again), my wife teaches at a Charter school where my kids attend (no government schools for us), and I am pro-life. They might have an aneurysm coming to my blog! 🙂 God bless!

  4. Even when the full film of the disgusting event against the Catholic Students was released, many of those hostile Tweets and slanderous and libelous media reports were not retracted. Some, in fact, doubled down. Yes, Christians are called to love, and I applaud those young Covington Students for not reciprocating ANY derogatory comments back at their antagonizers. Your 8 satirical comments are all too true — yet, none of your 8 points break any laws, offer harm to an opposing group, or offer any absolute reason to incite the hate directed at these young people. The media picked up and fraudulently ran with this story for all the reasons you included, and in support of radical left ideas, and nothing to do with true, unbiased, journalistic reporting. RIP Walter Cronkite.

  5. What a great post. In todays world we are judged by just about everything- race, religion, age, political views, weight, disabilities well you know what I mean. Social media has ruined many lives. We need to love everyone regardless of any differences. The funny thing nobody is perfect but God.
