Calling for widespread action to stop gun violence in Chicago, about 70 faith leaders from the city and nearby suburbs gathered Monday for prayer and reflection.
"We're tired of doing funerals. I feel like this tiredness has awakened us to really do something," said Pastor Paco Amador of the New Life Community Church in Little Village.

And then things go back to the usual, death and destruction.

The violence and killings in Chicago are these people’s fault. They support the corrupt politicians and street thugs who make Chicago what it is. Then they put on this phony victim act and pretend that it is not their fault things are so bad. They are nothing but Hypocrites. They make me sick.
They want to pass more gun control laws. They want to give more taxpayer money to thugs and criminals.
Good luck with all that.
It is Democrats that are causing your problems up there.
The over/under is 6.
I’ll take the over. Hell, 6 is one drive by!
Magical thinking. Hey, pass another gun control law. The leftist morons around the nation apparently think that will help.
Pure insane stupidity...
They have their reward in full.
Gun violence in Chicago?
Guns are illegal in Chicago.
I think there were more people killed in Chicago over the weekend than were killed in the Aurora shooting.
Even if these clergy were all Mr. Integrity, they would find it extremely difficult to reach these lost, drifting gang bangers who live the ever-hating morals of the only families they know. It takes a church not just a preacher. (Shameless pun on it takes a village.)
How’s that working for ya?
First Mayor Dead Fish says don’t shoot the kids.
Now a gaggle of so-so preachers say leave it off for a weekend.
The gangs? They don’t even bother to laugh. They don’t notice. They are spiritual zombies.
“Peace” in Chicago!
Exactly. Just need more taxpayer funds. They know who the bad guys are and they accept and tolerate them.
Peace will have to live in many more Chicagoans’ hearts before it will start to be seen in the city. (The same could be said of just about any large, declining US city.)
The Gordian knot of subsidized moral squalor in the black community must be cut. What slavery and Jim Crow could not steal, white liberals bribed away.
....the most powerful nation in the world is reduced to begging criminals to stop.
It really is Obamaland. :)
Crack in every pipe?
In the interim, a significant alteration of the ease with which the law-abiding might obtain the means to effect self-defense is very much in order - and, yes, would significantly CUT the incidence of homicide and other crimes of violence, as it has done everywhere it’s been tried.
I’ll go 7 dead and 18 shootings. It’s been a quiet weekend, only 3 dead.
Peace weekend by the black shyster reverends. So, shooting is O.K. during the
The ghetto ministers mostly are nothing but opportunists robbing their flock.
Odds are these so-called ministers are nothing except quick buck scammers.
In the most violent sections of Chicago, Woodlawn Gresham, you will see
at least 3 store front churches on every block.
It couldn’t hurt. Lead is your friend.
“The ghetto ministers mostly are nothing but opportunists robbing their flock. Odds are these so-called ministers are nothing except quick buck scammers.”
Here in NJ they’re a political group, but their influence has waned since Latinos displaced them in relevance. They are each a mini-Jesse Jackson, hoping for their piece of the racial extortion pie.
There is one, and only one solution, to this problem: kill all of the gang members and criminals. Summary trial & execution. Reduce the number to zero. No jail, no prison, no appeals, no plea bargains, no rehab, no parole, no 3 strikes crap. Just kill them. Absolutely zero recidivism.
Yeah, I know; it’ll never happen. But that is the only plausible solution, at this point in time where our highly-criminalized society now exists and is continuing to go everyday. A truly sad commentary is that nothing else works or will work. It’s only going to get much, much worse if it isn’t dealt with brutally and immediately.
The difference is managing expectation. You expect that out of a cesspool like Chicago...not so much out of Colorado.
Change must come from the inside, to have God’s laws written on our hearts as we have seen the destruction caused by our sins in our own lives..Many hearts are hard and will not grow the seeds of truth, love, and life...truly rocky soil in those who live only in hate..very destructive in all aspects..no social programs, no weapons banning can make the changes occur.
yep, they are like muslims and see the weakness, and feed on it..truly demonic..
“That guy you were going to shoot this weekend? Don’t do it. We want no murders this week. Next week, you can double up.”
