The Inflammatory Tongue
By Ron Branson
We are told in the Word of God, "A soft tongue breaketh
the bone," Proverbs 25:15. So what is a "soft tongue" that
breaks bones? It is kind words spoken in wisdom which cut to the
quick, and manifests itself in irrefutable truth! I like to
think that I always seek to respond in this manor to those who
Recently I sent an email out to the public that put the
indefensible conduct of a government official in a very bad
light. We are talking here about a police officer who shot and
killed another because, as alleged by him, he was cut off on the
road. Obviously, few would come to the defense of such system
that would cover up for such police action, as it was over the
Nevertheless, I received a hostile response for forwarding this
message out to the public, as I was told that putting out such a
message was inflammatory. I responded to this person with kind
words citing to our Declaration of Independence, to wit; "The history of the present King of Great
Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations all
having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny
over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a
candid world. ... He [the King of England] has erected a multitude
of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our
People, and to eat out their substance. .... protecting them, by
mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should
commit on the inhabitants of these states."
I was informed that nonetheless my appeal to the
Declaration of Independence, my sending out this article was
"designed only to inflame the tempers of unreasoned people."
I chose not to correspond further with this person, as
there seemed to be no reasoning with him. But what I did derive
from his response was that despite truth, truth should not be
propagated out to the "unreasonable" public whose tempers will
be inflamed. In other words, don't propagate truth if the truth
will inflame them against government. Just like raising
mushrooms, "Keep 'em in the dark, and feed 'em sh*t."
Such position makes me wonder what influence
the words of Patrick Henry had on those "unreasoned people" when
he shouted, "Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course
others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me
death!" But today, we shout, "Give me Librium, or give me Meth!"
I have been informed a number of times that
the title "JAIL4Judges" was offensive, and that I should change
it so as not to offend the judges in this country. Years ago I
sought not to "offend" the judges I appeared before, but after
many years of experience seeking to reason with these
unreasonable judges, I woke up to the fact that there is no way
to "reason" with the "unreasonable."
The definition of insanity, according to Albert Einstein was "Insanity:
doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different
results." I began to realize that no matter how much I sought to
be cordial and reasonable with these judges, I was manifesting
what Einstein called insanity.
After I realized that seeking justice within the courts was pure
insanity, I looked to the Lord for His answer to our dilemma,
and He instructed me to turn to my computer and to write. That
turned out to become the Judicial Accountability Initiative Law.
It took me two whole days to this task, and when I finished, I
knew that it was a work of the Hand of God.
I talked to the Lord, and said, "I know you moved upon me to
write this, but what am I going to do with it? I have no money
and no name recognition." And I know the Lord spoke to me as if
audible words, "Ron, leave that to Me!"
It was the moving of the very One Who also spoke the
words, "Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came
not to send peace, but a sword. For I am come to set a man at
variance against his father, and the daughter against her
mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law."
Matthew 10:34, 35. "But the wicked are like the troubled sea,
when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There
is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked." Isaiah 57:20, 21.
Truly, there was no man more divisive than
was Christ, although He spoke words of peace and comfort, and
argued with no one!
