Residents Turn Blind Eye to Illicit Drug Paraphernalia Sales

Complimentary Story
Wisconsin Christian News:

   We recently distributed a flyer (see at right) in our neighborhood to bring attention to the pot pipes being sold right on the front counter, just above the candy, at the local Citgo gas station at 3100 6 Mile Road here in the Crestview subdivision of Caledonia in Racine.  

   You would think that most people would be on board with keeping drugs out of their neighborhood.  Not so.  The response of the majority on a neighborhood blog was nothing less than grievious.  Most people seem to agree with the “just go along to get along” attitude and the “politicians know better” mindset.  I guess it’s no surprise that in a nation that kills it’s own children through abortion (and quite possibly post-birth abortion someday) that anything related to drugs is no longer frowned upon.  

   The natural parental protective instincts for our children seem to have diminished from our hearts.  One mother on the blog said, “My kids have never asked about them.  Of course they can barely see over the counter though.  I really like that place, however —  they are unfailingly kind to my kids and my family.” One woman who was in favor of the pot pipes being sold there even admitted that they sell “over priced and expired merchandise” and in the same breath said, “but they are very nice.”    If that’s not an oxymoron I don’t know what is! 

   People give their children to a government-run school system that tells them to “say no to drugs,” but then allows them to walk unattended into an establishment  that encourages the use of illicit drugs by legally putting the paraphernalia in front of their faces through loopholes created in the law made by the same politicians that set the standards for their “say no to drugs” public school education.  TWISTED!  

   A gentleman that was part of the blog even pointed out that “the station is skirting the law,” but in his very next comment, “they are super nice over there.”   So what are children to think when the adults they are to look to for instruction can’t even seem to keep simple things straight concerning their protection?

   The Bible makes clear that the use of mind-altering drugs is an abomination.  Our foundational belief is God’s Word and law, not many or any gods, but the God of Israel.  This country was founded on Judeo/Christian beliefs.  When confronted with Biblical truth, one of the women on the blog was justifying the wicked while condemning the just (which is also considered by God an abomination) by “defending the gas station’s right to sell legal products” and insinuating that we were being hateful for exposing the truth because according to her “Jesus preaches love and tolerance for one another,” the big fat lie of our day.  Freedom is NOT the acceptance or practice of any wicked evil thing that goes against the Word of God.

   Pray for the people in this neighborhood that they be convicted with truth and those in doubt would read God’s Word in context to find out for themselves what He truly says about these matters.
