Strange attractions

June 27, 2012

Well, that is a little disturbing. Actually, it is very disturbing. But unfortunately, not unexpected. Since the news was released about Luka Magnotta’s murder and dismemberment of Jun Lin in Montreal, he has garnered literally hundreds of online fans. His largest fan page on Facebook has over 1400 members and that is just one of many. There are those who think that Magnotta has been hard done by–that he is either innocent or, because of mental illness, isn’t responsible for his actions.
Others have no doubt that Magnotta is guilty as sin, but they say they admire his style. One admirer wrote, “I like Luka Magnotta because he is inspirational, nice, and very, very good looking.” It would appear that Magnotta has achieved that fame that had eluded him for so long.
I suppose if there weren’t those who were attracted to the dark side, Satan would be very lonely. Some people are attracted to evil in the same way that moths are attracted to a flame. And often with the same results.
We can’t change what others are attracted to, but let’s be careful to set our minds on what is true and honourable, right and pure, lovely and admirable, excellent and worthy of praise. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
