History Repeats Itself

Today the Catholic Church celebrates the "Feast of the Holy Innocents."

"When Herod realized that the visitors from the East had tricked him, he was furious. He gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its neighborhood who were two years old and younger." Matthew 2:16
It is a horrifying scene to see, young babies and toddlers being slaughtered just because the King feared that from these boys will come a great leader that will become a threat to his reign.
Fast forward to November 23, 2009, Maguindanao, Philippines; Datu Unsay Mayor Andal Ampatuan Jr ordered and headed the massacre of more than fifty people, women and journalists who were on a convoy to file the certificate of candidacy of rival Toto Mangundadatu.
Ampatuan over see the killing because he wanted to silence the people who will become a threat to his political dynasty.
Tsk....tsk....tsk.....what greed can do to a man.
