The Cancel Culture
Rejected. It was quite a blow.
Why? No one truly knows.
They ranted and raved.
Many pitched a fit.
Like that, the torch was lit.
And the attack was on.
Wait. What if they were wrong?
Too late. A life is now tainted.
Vultures swooped down to smear and torture.
That’s the nature of the cancel culture.
Be careful, loud mobs claiming truth.
The torch can swiftly shine the light on you.
We are often quick to jump on the bandwagon of perceived injustice. Even before all the facts have been presented we want to destroy the accused. Maybe we should hold off on the boycotts until all the facts are in.
The tables can easily turn. While we are accusing and shaming people, there are others, combing through our closets, looking for skeletons. Sometimes in our thirst for vengeance, we overlook our own shortcomings or turn into the monsters we hate.
Matthew 7:3–5 “Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? 4 How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? 5 You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.
