There is a truly troubling blog post that’s “botching the Lord’s name up,” as Da T.R.U.T.H. would rhyme, one written by Jennifer Mayers. Most folks are hoping that Mayers wrote the post as a satire piece, but plenty are fearing Jennifer actually believes the things she writes. A little backstory.
As reported by the Inquisitr, a troubled woman named Christy Sheats murdered her two daughters in cold blood after a family meeting went wrong. Sheats had shared a Facebook video about keeping her guns to protect the Sheats Family, with the irony of the story being that Christy’s family needed protection from Christy, because Sheats was the one who gunned down her daughters.
According to the Daily Mail, the 42-year-old Christy killed her 17-year-old daughter, Madison Sheats, and her 22-year-old daughter, Taylor Sheats, because she wanted her estranged husband to suffer. Jason Sheats had his life spared, but was so overcome with grief at the loss of his two daughters — who were dubbed Daddy’s girls — and likely at the death of his troubled wife, Christy, that Jason had to be hospitalized.
Taylor was set to marry Juan Sebastian Lugo, whose photos can be seen in plenty of photos in Google Images.
Jason reported that Christy was an alcoholic who had dealt with severe depression for more than two decades, had contemplated killing herself, and had been admitted to a private mental health facility three times. Out of work since 2012, Sheats had been reeling from the death of her grandfather that same year and her mother’s death a few months later.
Jason thought the family meeting Christy had called was to discuss their own rocky marriage on June 24. Instead, Christy chose to kill her daughters with the .38 that Sheats’ grandfather gave Christy — a gun that Sheats was denied a license to carry. Sheats wanted Jason to put 22-year-old Taylor on punishment, but Jason argued Taylor was too old to be grounded by her parents.
However, Sheats has a champion in Mayers, who is twisting God’s Word to call Christy a hero in her post titled “America’s Martyr: NO Race Mixing,” posted on
Folks like Jennifer seem to completely overlook God’s reaction to Miriam and Aaron grumbling over Moses’ interracial marriage to a Cushite woman, as reported by Bible Hub. Instead of God confirming Miriam and Aaron’s judgments over Moses’ mixed marriage and status as a prophet, Numbers 12:9–10 describes how God struck those grumbling against the mixed-race union with leprosy.
“Then Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Cushite woman whom he had married (for he had married a Cushite woman) … So the anger of the LORD burned against them and He departed. But when the cloud had withdrawn from over the tent, behold, Miriam was leprous, as white as snow. As Aaron turned toward Miriam, behold, she was leprous. Then Aaron said to Moses, ‘Oh, my lord, I beg you, do not account this sin to us, in which we have acted foolishly and in which we have sinned.'”
Nevertheless, Mayers attempts to use the Bible as justification to hail Sheats as some sort of God-fearing, gun-toting hero who was trying to defend her daughters from “black boys.”
“The beautiful woman is Christy Sheats. The Texas wife and mother who is being vilified in the media for shooting and killing her teenage daughters. It makes for a great headline in mainstream media but what goes unsaid is even more powerful.
“A devout Republican and gun rights advocate, she no doubt discovered that both of her daughters had been promiscuous and were sleeping with black boys and she took it upon herself to put an end to that cycle. She was brave enough to stand up and say ENOUGH! Not in MY house! And she should be lauded.”
While Mayers can be seen celebrating the number of hits that Jennifer is getting for her blog post, Mayers is getting roasted on social media for her stance calling Christy a hero who wouldn’t have to explain to Sheats’ friends why she was carrying a “yellow mixed baby that her promiscuous daughters had created.”
Jennifer calls herself woman of Guatemalan descent in a blog post that waxes on about how Mayers has no sympathy for poor people — and describes how her long black hair and smooth skin made boys and girls jealous. Jennifer wrote that she was never invited to parties.
