All the people in the synagogue were furious when they heard this. They got up, drove (Jesus) out of the town, and took him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw him off the cliff. But he walked right through the crowd and went on his way. Luke 4:29-30
The gospel of Luke has an intriguing passage about Jesus. He had just finished reading these words from the scroll of Isaiah:
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19
At that moment everyone was praising him, thinking of how the hometown boy was making good. Then Jesus said something about other people getting miracles, not the people of Israel. They are incensed and try to kill him.
The text makes me think about the much maligned Anthony Fauci, Doctor, scientist, and healer. He has been the nation’s authority on Covid 19. Thrust into the spotlight with the arrival of Covid in 2020, he has offered his professional guidance. At the age of Eighty-one, he continues to actively promote messages to bring healing to the nation. But, in the past year, he has become the person that some people love to hate. He is publicly reprimanded when he meets with Congress, by Rand Paul. He is mocked on Social media and demonized by Fox news opinion hosts. There are those who blame him as the sources of the pandemic, and not the one who is doing all in his power to stop it. Death threats follow not only him, but his family.
I think of what that must do to a person, who has given his life for the healing of a nation. How painful it must be, after a career in public service, to become the scapegoat of so many people. I think how hard is has to be to forgive those who taunt him and put his life in jeopardy. I think of what kind of grace it takes, to speak kindly to politicians who have no kind words for him. I think of how tired he must be of speaking truth to those who do not want to hear it.
Then, I think of Jesus, whose ratings went from 100 percent to zero, after speaking truth at the synagogue in Nazareth. I remember how Jesus was able to walk through the mob, set on killing him that day. I pray that Dr. Fauci is able to continue to walk through today’s mob, to safety and his own place of healing.
You’re talking about the beagle torturer and the man who is covering up his illegal gain of function research in China? I think Jesus is not too pleased with this wicked man.
I like to fact check stories that seem out of character for a person in the public eye. Think of all the wild stories you’re heard about different politicians through the years.
What I have found is that the Dr. Fauci stories are either completely false or misleading.
I use Snopes – but you can find the same information at other sites: Here is information on the Beagle question: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/fauci-vaccine-experiment-beagles/
And the Gain of Function Research. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/fauci-gain-function-covid/
Sorry but Snopes is compromised. The husband had lunch with Soros. Also, PETA is going after Fauci for the animal torture. And there are photos of Fauci in the lab. You seem like a fair thinker. You might want to pick up a copy of the book by Robert Kennedy, “The Real Anthony Fauci”.
Here is another Fact Checking spot associated with the University of Pennsylvania.
Sorry but I’m dropping this topic. Enjoy the day.
Thanks for taking the time but my blog is focused around my beloved Buddy, so you can understand why any animal torture would get me very emotional.
I noticed in the reviews of Robert Kennedy’s book, that he is advocating alternative treatment for Covid that he believes Dr. Fauci rejected. The University of Minnesota has been doing studies on some of those. They determined in a blind study that hydroxychloroquine was no more effective than a placebo. They are currently finishing a study on fluvoxamine, ivermectin and metformin, separately and in combination. They anticipate their results will be available in about a month.
