A man once revered and respected who fell from grace. Now he's making his way back, and showing that he has developed grit and a sense of perspective with maturity. To that end, he calls out the obvious. The killing of George Floyd was horrific. Police, of course, are generally great individuals who we look to for help. Except for a few radical libertarians I unfriended who were into the whole 'all authority is Hitler' shtick.
Anyhoo, he calls for the better way, the way of goodness and light. As does, in his own strange way, Dennis Rodman. Go figure.
In addition, our local Catholic priest also called out the evils surrounding George Floyd's death. He specifically, however, said it was not about racism. It's about the evil of our hearts. And likewise, the reactions that have erupted, the worst of them, have also been the result of the evil of our hearts. Basically it's a spiritual problem, an evil in our hearts, our broken relationship to God. Rodman and Tiger both get the goodness and evil part. Our priest - straight in from Africa - gets the evil and spiritual connection to God part.
Would that more of our courageous religious and national leaders hear this, and not piddle in their pants and embrace all manner of anti-American, racist, bigoted, ignorant and false narratives just to keep their jobs. When a priest from Africa, a golfer and a dyed hair, tattoo emblazoned basketball star say it better than our political and religious leaders, we've got some serious praying to do.
