Well this week they mounted the sequel. Their purpose was to answer their critics, as well as to continue to develop their promotional theme for “Cover the Night,” a vision to make Kony famous — or rather, to get the word out on how much damage he’s caused for the people of Uganda, South Sudan, and neighboring lands.

I get all kinds of responses when I ask for input. (See the 16+ comments following the item above.)

Others say that Christians shouldn’t waste their time on non-spiritual responses like Invisible Children, preferring instead to be focused on church-related responses. Still others believe that, either way, the guy is up to no good and that he should indeed be hunted down and tried in court.

 

So — What’s your take on the whole thing? I go back and forth. Once, during a visit to villages in South Sudan, an LRA contingent marched by along the perimeter of the huts. I’ll admit, it was creepy. Most of the kids looked 14, yet they were all carrying guns. The people were obviously nervous about it, but nobody felt empowered to do anything about it. It definitely felt like a form of intimidation, yet they didn’t really interact with the village I was visiting. But… maybe they were essentially just making their presence known, you know? What’s your take — on the new video especially? Do you feel like they made their case? Should church youth groups get involved?
