Parading Around....

If you read the story below - you might be steaming.

I am.

A woman who is the head of a women's organization - a woman who should be defending women's rights.... and yet, what does she do? She runs a brothel. Not only a regular brothel....right? because that wouldn't be bad enough. No, she runs a brothel that SPECIALIZES in selling virgins to VIPs, politicians and police officers. Oh wait, it doesn't stop there....not only does she hold what appears to be 4-5 minor girls as sex slaves in her brothel. She ALSO has a lovely photo book of the girls available for purchase from the local boarding school. If a client wants one of those girls she can simply go to the boarding school, pick them up for their "appointment" and then bring them back to school.

What a hypocrite. Does this just make you steaming mad? It makes me want to SHUT HER DOWN. Oh the EVIL.

And just as I rage over the injustice of it all. The situation itself and the hypocrisy of parading around as a good upstanding citizen.... and then I remember.

Isaiah 58 again...For day after day they seek me out;
they seem eager to know my ways,
as if they were a nation that does what is right
and has not forsaken the commands of its God."

I wonder if we, the church, are any better than this brothel owner??? Parading around as a people who care about justice and turning to look the other way when a situation like this comes out. It's been a full day - we have $700.

It's one thing to talk about it. To look like a person who cares about justice. It's a whole other thing to "loose the chains" of injustice with my actions, with my sacrificial giving.

What will you choose?

$700 is a good start, Brandi. The buzz is building...give God time to work and melt hearts. :)

But trust me. I'm as ticked off as you are right now.

Infuriating, though not shocking. Unfortunately. Thanks for always shouting the truth!

Sadly, "Justice" has become a noun in our society. It's clearly a verb in the Bible and we God requires us to live it with our whole heart. Thanks for waking us up Brandi.
