Malice and Vainglory

Yesterday I posted something about the Little Geneva web site. Some might want a “fer instance” on my claim that fifteen minutes in these cyber places will reveal examples of racial malice or vainglory. Okay. Referring to the editor of World magazine as “Olasky the Jew” would be one example that I believe I have seen there. Another would be this comment on the atrocities in New Orleans. The emphasis is mine: “A black Jamaican who has his eyes open is covered in shame: ‘The pictures I have been seeing are of people — black people — stealing shoes, diapers, and television sets. Not food and definitely not water . . . I am beginning to believe that black people, no matter where in the world they are, are cursed with a genetic predisposition to steal, murder, and create mayhem.'” In other words, the manifest sinfulness of the response of many New Orleans blacks to the disaster is given a radically false cause. In response to my post, Little Geneva tries to defend the indefensible here by appealing to St. Paul’s rebuke of the Cretans — they are evil beasts, lazy gluttons and liars. This testimony is true, Paul said, but he did not state it as a genetic truth. Therefore, he told Titus to rebuke them so that they would be sound in the faith. You don’t rebuke people for their genetic predispositions. You rebuke them for sinning. And then this taunt of the Rev. Jesse, taking him to task — not for being the scoundrel he really is — but rather mocking the work of God in him. “‘It is racist to call American citizens refugees,’ says Je$$e. It’s better than jigaboo, though.” Malice and vainglory, and there is a lot more of it at Little Geneva. Q.E.D. Now that the record is straight, I would encourage folks to stay away from these guys.
