DEALING WITH THE BULLY

DEALING WITH THE BULLY
Father John Walsh

Our world is replete with bullying. In our schools, bigger kids bullying smaller kids, in offices people who are hard-working are attacked by the slackers and eventually have to quit, and in the Dictionary “bully pulpit” is attributed to the American presidency.
The fact is that bullying is not a question of strength but a question of weakness. Bullies are born of weakness and it shows in their inability to have an intelligent conversation. There are strong narcissistic characteristics in a bully, always having to be the best at all costs. Bullying comes from weakness.
Are we failing our young people in providing them with so few adult role models have strength of character? Are we failing society when we do not have the strength to admit we are a big part of the cause of the many problems we have in society? Are we failing our faith?
As a Christian I am called to deal gently with the ignorant and wayward (Hebrews 5:2) and that the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than me, If I must boast. (2 Cor 11:30). The sense of weakness is non-violent resistance.

This very day the scriptures are to be fulfilled in us as leaders in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We must stand together, express our strength of character, fulfil the strength give us in our sacred texts.

The quintessential foundation of our religious faith is compassion.
The present situation, after the election of Donald Trump, is a clarion call to resist those who promote everything but compassion.
Henri Nouwen best defines compassion.

Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human.
