A round-the-world boating adventure ended tragically Tuesday for four Americans, whom pirates fatally shot after capturing their yacht in the Indian Ocean last week, U.S. officials said.
He earlier had said the Adams were conscious of pirate threats and were concerned about boating in the area.
One aspect of their travels, according to the couple's website, was "friendship evangelism -- that is, finding homes for thousands of Bibles, which have been donated through grants and gifts, as we travel from place to place." They also said their mission was to "allow the power of the Word to transform lives."
But, Stolnitz said, vigorous evangelism wasn't a major emphasis for the couple. "They use the Bible as an ice-breaker," he said. - People's News Network
Here in unreality land -- a place shared by secular humanism, liberalism, progressivism and exoteric Christianity -- the Crowd gathers and decides it's better to be pacifistic and give in than to struggle. After all, what if one of us was a pirate (because we were down on our luck, of course, not because we were murderous parasites, oh no) -- we wouldn't want to be shot, so shoot no one. Give in.
Yet pirates are just murderous parasites, and so if things don't go according to plan, they freak out and kill people. Those people we hope were dreaming of their evangelism, the movies they made as film executives, their wealth, whatever. They are victims of the unreality in which we live, as are we all if we do not support immediate open-water hangings for all pirates (or all Somalis we can catch, if it doesn't stop).
