United States: Amidst a seismic upheaval in cultural currents, the serene corridors of Boston’s places of worship find themselves assailed by the clamor of awakened calls for restitution. Leading this tumult is Reverend Kevin C. Peterson, an emblematic figure of the radical peripheries of progressive thought, advocating for a staggering USD 15 billion disbursement to rectify perceived historical wrongs dating back to the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

This plea for restitution, veiled under the guise of social equity, not only marks a departure from traditional principles but constitutes a direct affront to the sanctity of our spiritual convictions. It endeavors to assign collective culpability to present-day congregations for transgressions they did not commit, disregarding the foundational Christian tenet of individual accountability and personal redemption.

The clamor for pecuniary restitution, ostensibly intended to expiate the sins of slavery, is nothing short of ludicrous. It reduces multifaceted historical dilemmas to mere fiscal transactions, trivializing the profound ethical quandaries inherent in addressing the aftermath of slavery.

Furthermore, the proposed allotment of resources towards monetary compensations and communal endeavors fails to grapple with the underlying causes of systemic challenges confronting the African American community. Instead of fostering authentic reconciliation and empowerment, it perpetuates a cycle of dependence and victimization, undermining the very precepts of self-sufficiency and fortitude that underpin conservative ethos.

Conservative politicians in the city of Boston, besides all, point out that their subject is in total war with this variety of regressive reparation. They dissented from the moral and faithful that compensation can wipe out the sins of the past and avenge the historical injustices. Instead of that, these scholars would rather demand comprehensible strategies that recognize the complicatedness of the common history and emphasize truth rather than reconciliation.

It amounts not just that it is a part of the small individual, but also that it is a betrayal of the word faith which is written in the first pages of the Christian religion. Its main intention is to utilize the historical problems to achieve political benefits through aggravated adversity and hostility, replacing adequacy of peace and reconciliation.

With the lines of who is fighting for who, and the cultural gap widening, conservative leaders repeat that they will not shift or break their promises. These people refuse to be moved by the dangerous power of woke ideologies, but instead they remain faithful, constantly defending the sacrifice and honor of our faith and the integrity of our institutions.

Woke thought would have torn down the temples of worship of ancestors. Conservative must, therefore, take up the mantle and fight back unflinchingly need to stop the unreal life promises of restitution and instead participate in the construction of a balanced future where genuine justice, empowerment, and opportunity for career growth can be enjoyed by all as there is likely to be no discrimination by race or religion among people.
