Cowards can never be moral - Ghandi

Just the other day one of Winston Blackmore's children were at the Station in Colorado City and Carvel Nielson refused to serve her and invited her to leave. She is a sweety, if they can do it to her, they will do it to me.
They want us to just walk away and "Keep Sweet".
We fear for our loved ones and won't stop to talk and say Hi!

What can we do that we are not doing now?

I say Face our Fears. Love unconditionally. Are you going to let your fears dicate where you go and who you are nice to? After all this isn't about THEM it is about ME!

Call your family, say Hi! to your friends and loved ones, don't let them forget you. Just because they draw a line in the sand, doesn't mean you can't cross. After all it is their line not yours.

Too true, too true. But it takes a bit to getting over that fear of rejection. And there is the "If I talk to them, will I be getting them in trouble?" In a lot of cases, yes.

It seems we must anyway. Many times when the time feels right for them to make a change, they remember who was nice to them. Then they know where to go for help.

You mean Carvel wouldn't let her get gas? Or he wouldn't give her food?

How old was she, did she have children with her, what did she do after he acted like such an schmuck?

onthestreet said...

Maybe he was under goodly orders from above. Keep sweet. Go back and smile at them, and do whatever business you have there, if any. Be dignified about it, minding your own business, and then depart honorable and in a dignified way.

Just don't prove yourselves sour, dishonorable, undignified.

WOW!!! OTS actually said something that made sense! I'm impressed! He even said to go back and act big! Maybe you oughtta take a little of your own advice, street. Go back and be a big boy.
And you left out "go-nads"

onthestreet said...

Didn't say go back and be someone else's hind-end. I said go back and be noble, or don't go back at all. If you have some nobility to add to the mix, or can let your light actually be a light and a joy to look upon, that's a different matter.

Hey RHI!

You go! I am so glad to hear someone else say what you said!! And I couldnt agree more!! You can never lose by sending out good. If what Jesus taught us is correct, (and it is..) it will come back to you tenfold! Thank you for the awesome post!

I really liked your post RHI. I go over to my mother's house sometimes even when I know she doesn't like me to. I want my children to know there grandma.

Somehow I want to teach them a lesson. Isn't there laws against religious discrimination? After all it is the only gas station in town. Maybe we could get them scared enough to be nice to everyone.

Faithful Woman said...

Carvel at the gas station? Was he working in the food department and refused to serve her a pizza or something?
I thought Carvel had a more "important" job than the gas station.
Anyone try to travel with hungry children?

Try un-scared enough to be nice.

onthestreet said...

Carvel's a good man, a marvel. Don't put much blame on him.

Anonymous said...

Just tell Carvel his deceased father would be very disappointed in him! Elroy was a dear friend of mine, and I know how he felt about discrimination.

Perhaps that sort of unkindness, when reported, and others find out (so it's not a secret cruetly) they might be more cognizant of treating people like that in the future.

The thing I can't understand is that my mother in law always tells her son that she loves him unconditionally but, she doesn't ever call him or check on him or even say hi. In the 2 and a half years I have been married she hasn't even wrote him a letter or anything...don't sound like love to me

Hey, Rumor--I would like to contact you and compare notes. I'm wondering if you have a safe email address or if you can let me know how to communicate with you.

Fried Female, it's good to see you back. It's been a while.

Actually, I have been lurking quite a bit and actually putting in a thought here and there but I've been too lazy to put my moniker on it.

That is what I have thought all along. I say HI to anyone I see, and often I have to repeat myself to get a response, but in stores where others who are NOT from their group might see, they usually act nice to me. I also say HI to the children, and if I remember their name I call them by their name. I hope to maintain the fact that I am not a BAD, SCARY, WICKED PERSON, as they are obviously being told by someone. As time has gone by, it is getting harder to get anyone, even the children to respond. The other day after meeting with some of my family, my 5 year old asked me --ARE THEY BAD GUYS?-- I told him --NO-- his response was --THEN ARE WE BAD GUYS?-- All he saw was how our relatives treated us face to face. I guess in some cases it is not how they treat us, but how they literally RUN AWAY from us. At the pond when we go to swim, they have to leave instantly, and call in all their children. It is interesting to hear their little ones ask --WHY?-- Then some of the little ones stand and stare, asking themselves why everyone thinks WE are so bad. One little girl asked us as we arrived if we were in the work, we told her YES, and she said--GOOD WE CAN SWIM WITH YOU THEN. Of course her 9 year old sister tried to hush her and made her leave with the rest of them.

I refuse to ignore my child, but it is getting harder to come in contact with her. She has fixed the phone so I cannot phone from my home to hers. I have to call from somewhere else, and then she hangs up on me if any other people are at her house. Her husband doesn't trust her, and keeps someone with her at all times to PROTECT her from her family who dearly love her. She rarely goes anywhere, because she might accidentally meet up with some of US in town. She won't give me pictures of my grandchildren, and has returned all the pictures she ever had of US. I wonder if this is a common thing, or is it just a few who are doing this? Knowing how much she has always loved pictures, and how much work she puts into photo pages, this must be something she has been told to do.

I have just recently been given alot of pictures from my family. of course they told me they had so many extra ones, and all the excuses, but when I look at the pictures, I see that my family is getting rid of pictures of people who are not following the way they are. Do you think they think they can erase us out of their lives? What happened to HONOR YOUR FATHER AND YOUR MOTHER, and PARENTS HONORING THEIR CHILDREN?

ATAR_i said...

Have you evern considered uploading your photos to a website, making a really intuitive easy to remember name and giving your daughter the URL.

Let her know, that any time she wants to see the photos, they are available online - say if she goes to the library.

At least she will know that the photos are not lost to her, and if she doesn't go and visit the photos, she will at least know they exist.

I am sorry for your loss, I really cannot imagine how that must feel. At some point - she will come back to you, how old is she?

Which one of Winstons daughters was it?

My mother and grandma gave me all the pictures they had of me. My mother told me that she didn't have time to do anything with them.

Well, Warren Jeffs has commanded his followers to break several of the ten commandments.

But this one has a condition attached to it.

Genesis 20:12

Honor your father and mother, that you days maybe prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.

So dear Jeffs followers who shun your parents for this prophet, have just shorten your days upon your land.

Have you notice some of the prophecies Prophet Jeffs proclaim are produced by his actions?

This commandment comes with a promise from God and Warren has made you break it, along with some other commandments. Adultry, stealing, bearing false witness and coveting your neighbors possessions.

So what's one more commandment broken, right.

You folks have only one main person to blame for your troubles and he is hiding in his hole of darkness. He serves another master and Hades is his abode, not Zion.

"And who is thy mother, the father, thy brother, etc."
(Jesus Christ). He's the one who questions the validity of natural parents when they turn against the will of the Father of the church of God, and of the Father in heaven.

You conveniently ignore and neglect and blasphems the Word of God and His Christ.

Well, at this point it doesn't matter where he is, because he has to go through his intermediaries to be able to control the people. So who truely knows WHO is really running things??? Just think twice about what you do just because someone said that someone said that you should do this! (Move apostates off UEP land,now move saints off; move to Texas, oops!, move to Colorado, or maybe Wyoming, or just anywhere, just GET OFF UEP land!) It's like the weather in Texas, wait 15 minutes and it will be different. What I wonder is how do you tell the good guys from the bad guys, saints vs. sinners. I see (apostates) that have some real compassion and (saints) who would rather see their would-be-friends dead.
All that aside, he's probably been lifted up and no one will ever see him again! why not just try being kind to one another again? Just try it, it's a wonderful feeling.

There is no confusion, except for the chaos of your own minds.

ATAR_i said...

Your leader has left you, he is hiding, HE is in chaos, he cannot live in the home he creates.

He has created the chaos, the confusion comes when you are being asked to do something you believe to be wrong - and yet, someone who is supposed to be looking out for your best interest is asking you to do it.

The fruits of your prophet are hate, discord and confusion - and have left some of his followers, on the street.

what verse is that?

Anonymous said...

But Warren takes the first commandment and convolutes it to mean "no other gods before Warren"

Does this make anyone else's hair raise? I remember Sunday after Sunday sitting and listening to his permutations of the scripture and looking around, wondering "am I the ONLY one who wonders what the HELL?"

I know them both, and Brother Nielsen would be very proud of him. I know EXACTLY how he felt about discriminating between good and evil, or outsiders coming in posing as beneign, to collect information and to assault. We've seen it all our lives.

Rayj, Uncle Elroy would only say to you: "Get ye hense. I never knew you.
