Houston’s Police Chief Art Acevedo has had enough.

Essentially he calls out those hollow prayers that come after every mass shooting and the hatred in our country that’s driving this violence. He also calls out the “so-called” people of faith that are accepting of these new norms. He doesn’t mince words.

Read his powerful post. If you have Facebook, you can read the overwhelming positive comments in support of Acevedo’s post. People are fed up and Acevedo’s post speaks for the majority of Americans.

I believe his post sums up the hypocrisy and inaction in our country today.

I will continue to speak up and will stand up for what my heart and my God commands me to do, and I assure you he hasn’t instructed me to believe that gun-rights are bestowed by him.

  1. I totally agree if this administration is allowed to continue with money grabbing evil church going and evil republicans and white supremists and Kkk and thrust of trumps people and our children have to pay the price we will turn the country into a dictatorship with the devil at our helm . I am so scared I am 83years old and I walk with a cane.i try to support the loving people and I write letters . I call congress but they never answer and usually send my call to a full answering machine what is wrong with you people that you love guns and don’t care if our children are killed. I lived my whole life without a gun and never hVe I wanted to learn to shoot one. Thanks for listening.

  2. If you grew up here, in the predominantly Christian culture of the U.S., you probably experienced the disillusionment associated with the Tooth Fairy, Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, Sponge Bob, etc., and you pretty-much survived the experience. You came to make a clear distinction between reality and fantasy, pretty-much. The lesson of childhood; some things are real, some are “just pretend.” Roy Rogers’ guns only shot “blanks.” You may not be old enough to know who Roy was. A good guy with a gun before television was invented, he always prevailed against his adversaries without killing them. His real name was Leonard Slye. Roy Rogers was “just pretend” too. So, God is the only all powerful immortal being that we can call upon when events are beyond our control. And, we would like to believe that he will intervene. Maybe. Just doesn’t sound like a very sound plan, to me, at 70+ years of age. We should listen to the kids, and, stop telling them lies.

    • Unfortunately he had to use God in his Facebook statement. He is the one who was sad and felt pain and anger. He is the one that will do something about it for our children’s future, not some fantasy being. He has more power than he thinks.

  3. JESUS REMINDS US: THOU SHALL NOT KILL. THERE IS NO ADDITIONAL DISCUSSION, NEITHER FROM HIM, NOR THE 10 COMMANDMENTS. WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?
