And Jesus Wept

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Earthquake or Black Friday? Shoppers leave Nike store trashed

A Nike outlet store near Seattle, Washington offered some of the most astonishing images from Black Friday 2016 as shoppers left hundreds of opened shoe boxes strewn across the floor.

According to BuzzFeed, more than 20,000 people visited the Nike factory store at the Seattle Premium outlets in Tulalip, Washington on Friday. But while hundreds presumably walked away with a new pair of kicks, many changed their minds after trying a pair on.

By the end of the day, the shoe aisles in the store had been transformed into rivers of orange shoe boxes, forcing customers to wade through the piles of cardboard to get through the store.

According to BuzzFeed, one store employee called the situation “Jurassic Park crazy,” and added that it “bothered” him to see kids and adults alike pull items out without putting them back, and kicking things aside with little to no regard.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

To say we have become a materialistic society is indeed an understatement.

With a huge mess like that I wonder how many pairs of shoes "walked" out the door.
