Texas minister sets himself on fire.
[link to www.dallasnews.com]

From segregated churches of East Texas to destitute slums of India, the Rev. Charles Moore fought for human rights.

He delivered sermons about racism and sexism. He stood vigil against the death penalty. He went on a hunger strike to protest discrimination against gays and lesbians.

But during retirement, the United Methodist minister questioned whether he had done enough. He saw the broken world around him...

On a Monday afternoon in June, Moore, 79, drove from his home in Allen to Grand Saline, the town of his childhood about 70 miles east of Dallas. He traveled along country roads near fields of wildflowers and grazing cattle. In a strip-mall parking lot, outside a dollar store, beauty salon and pharmacy, he knelt down, doused himself with gasoline and lit himself on fire.

This guy was a fucking idiot. He was a member of the church of libtardism, not the church of Christ.

“He was taking care of the worldly things for her (his wife), but what he failed to realize was the emotional turmoil that he would leave behind. And not just her, but his sons, his grandchildren,” said Kathy Renfro, his stepdaughter.

Yeah, it was kind of an epic fail on his part. The local papers just said he was a disturbed old man. Why do it in a destitute strip mall?

Christians do not commit suicide for any reason, certainly not as an editorial statement.

Could be he lost his marbles. Hopefully.
It would be sad to think that all the years he spent may have been following the doctrines of men rather than the Word of God.

I've always felt that a person is of more use alive than dead, even if the person became a martyr. Of course, that would require the living person be smart enough to know how to influence things.
Maybe some people are better off dead!

It was not racial separation, it was religious separation, you could be adopted into the Jewish faith, but you had to leave idols behind. Had nothing to do with color Jews were different tribes and not all the same color because of marriages.

Indeed... I remember the story of Jesus..

Some say it was sucide , but I know it was not. He prayed in the garden so hard he sweat blood. He asked God to take this cup off of him, but BUT if it was his will then his will be done. He was also a man and he did not want to die like that BUT for the will of our father above. He was sent to forgive us all. He could of come down off that cross but if he has we would all still be damned by the old covenate curses of which they are legion. In his sacrifice we are forgiven and made new. So their aint no need for us to kill ourselves for anything. Better to live and preach the word and express love than to set ourselves on fire.

One would think that Christians would have more respect for self-sacrifice. When the monks in Vietnam started setting themselves on fire I knew "we" had no chance of winning. There is power in being a wave rather than a particle.

This wasn't self-sacrifice. It was a retard killing himself for no reason. It was malignant white guilt. When was the last time any other race had people killing themselves because they felt guilty for their race? It's absurd.

It was not racial separation, it was religious separation, you could be adopted into the Jewish faith, but you had to leave idols behind. Had nothing to do with color Jews were different tribes and not all the same color because of marriages.
 Quoting: Mortimer


The Bible constantly refers to genetics/genea/genesis/generations, that means race. The problem is the Bible has been systematically mistranslated to hide this fact to conform to Satanic Babylonian Talmudic Law of Man. When you understand Adam was the first of white people and that Cain was a product of Satan (The Adversary) and that there is EMNITY between these two races, then more of the Bible will make sense. You people use words like Jew when there is no such word. The word before it got changed around in the 1800's was Judean, and it mean a resident of Judea. The original builders of Judea, The Tribe of Judah, were white but south of Judea was Idumea where the Edomites lived. The Edomites were descendants of Esau who was white but had taken Canaanite wives. So while the Edomites claim to be descendants of Abraham, they are actually mixed with satanic serpent devil blood. That's why Jesus said they're a race of vipers.

I don't know, he traveled the world, went on hunger strikes... he seemed legitimately dedicated to this cause. Self immolation is pretty much taking this type of activism to it's extreme. If anything, I think it's more likely he idolized people like the self immolating monks and wanted the glory of being a recognized civil rights activist.
