More Detroit City Council Clownery

Some days you wonder why we even pay attention to the goings-on at the Detroit City Council.

Sure its expected when they're jockeying for position as mayor they'll make some noise or more noise or even threats to get into the public eye.

Sure we're watching them trying their best to destroy Detroit not in order to save it, but both to aggrandize themselves and to stop the suburbs (ie white people) from having any say in keeping the City afloat and saving Detroit's "crown jewels", those rapidly declining edifices of what might have been but have been neglected into disrepair and mismanaged into shadows of their former glory.

Its a bit like watching the incompetent drunken engineer of a train cause a train wreck - in slow motion.

Enthralling, at the same time horrifying and ludicrous, a tragi-comedy of errors of epic proportions.

Maybe we watch because we just don't know what inanity they will think up next, or because the rest of the United States thinks that Detroit IS Michigan, especially southeast Michigan, and we watch Michigan decline as the rest of the US thinks we're in favor of this series of grossly negligent pronouncements of the council.

Onward Christian Soldiers (Detroit City Council Chapter only, no whites or suburbians please) indeed.

There are lots of things I could say about Detroit City Council, most of which would not be very Christian. But after viewing the video you linked, here is what I will say:

1. These people are no example of real Christianity. They are clueless about what real Christianity is (among the many things they are clueless about)

2. To Ms. Collins and the other singers in the video: When you try to wrap your activities with the banner of Jesus, you better make very very sure you are doing his will and not your own. Otherwise the consequences will be very dire for you. As the scriptures say "Do not be deceived: God is not mocked, for whatever one sows, that will he also reap. "(Gal 6:7)

Didn't mean to turn this into a sermon, my friend, but you hit the nail on the head with the word "Clownery". For this is Clownery and not Christianity they are exemplifying, and as a Christian (though no paragon, certainly) this absolutely disgusts me.
