I was so pleased to find that this Trumpet article was online. Saved me the effort of manually typing it all in. Because clearly you needed to be warned about the demonic zombie apocalypse.
What could possibly possess someone to do something so ghoulish, so barbaric--so inhuman?
You've surely heard of this spate of bizarre cannibalistic crimes. They sound like scripts from shock B-grade horror films--but, incomprehensibly, they are actually happening.
A homosexual porn star in Canada apparently killed his lover and ate him--but not before mailing to the nation's main political parties his victim's dismembered feet and hands. A naked Miami man ate almost the entire face off a homeless person; when police intervened, he viciously growled back at them like an animal before they shot him to death. A Louisiana man was working in his yard when another man showed up and attacked him, and actually bit a chunk of his face off. At a college in Maryland, a student admitted to carving up his roommate with a knife and devouring his heart and part of his brain.
The mind reels. And all these events occurred just within the last couple weeks.
Much media coverage has centered on bath salts--a potent drug that a couple of these attackers might have taken. The U.S. Senate responded by voting almost unanimously to ban the substance.
As reasonable as passing that bill may have been, though, are we really going to pretend that this combination of chemicals is the real cause of these horror stories? No drug turns people into crazed, violent beasts.
These are clearly crimes influenced - or perhaps even committed--by demons.
That's right--there is a spiritual dimension to these events that the media are apparently duty-bound to completely ignore.
People can laugh or scoff, but demons are very real, and active in the world today.
You can put me in the "laugh or scoff" column. I wasn't even aware of these incidents that they think i've "surely heard of". And even if are real, that is quite a conclusion to draw. It must be pretty scary to believe you are living in End Times.
Even for the Trumpet, this one's a doozy.
ooh! ooh! i heard of the first 2!
