JESUS, PLEASE PROTECT US FROM YOUR PEOPLE

So, I'm driving from work today, talking on the celly to Aaron (my best friend who is gay & jewish (this entry will explain why i felt you needed to know that), i refer to him often as "SUPER JEW!") and we are both bitching about how bad people we know have it right now in regards to finances, jobs, drama and what not. This is usually when I pipe in by blaming everything on BUSH (cause ya'll know I can't stand the Mutha). I even went as fas as to blame the Tsunamis on him. (i was just bitchin')

This is when Aaron goes,"Oh, that reminds me of a conversation I had with my maid, Hellen." (65yr old white woman)

I said,"How?"

Aaron said, "Well, I knew she was a Christian but I have never experienced her go off like this."

**confused look on my face** (what does being a Christian have to do with anything)
Again, I say, "How?"

Aaron,"Well, She said the Tsunamis were Gods way of cleaning up the world."

Me, shocked and pissed off to the highest degree,
"WHAT!!!! HOW THE FUCK DOES SHE FIGURE!!"

Aaron says, "She said that those people were Muslim and that they died because they didn't believe in Jesus."

Me, "!" ***so shocked, and speechless......I couldn't even come up with words!****

Aaron said," I told her that I was Jewish. I believe Jesus was a great man like Dr. Martin Luther King but not my Lord. I asked if she thought I deserved the same faite."

Me,"and what did she say to that?"

Aaron,"She said that because I was a Jew, I was one of God's chosen people and he (God) was letting me slide."

Me, **in just jaw dropping amazement, too shocked for an intelligent response**

"WHAT?!! SLIDE?! WTF!! WHAT KIND OF SHIT IS THIS? I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS SHIT!"

Aaron,"I know. I tried to ration with her. I told that there were innocent people that were killed in those Tsunamis............ She's crazy, but she's really a good person inside."

Me, "WHAT! This is the person who would tell you that your being gay is an abomination. So what are you? an exception to the rule? Hell, she hates me because I'm Black! (She thinks that Blacks are descendants Ham so we ARE NOT supposed to be equals. We are cursed.) Good Person? FUCK THAT! She is what's wrong with Christianity."

To me, she's like those that burn down abortion clinics, lynch blacks, beat gays, ridicule feminism, and curses anyone that disagrees. That's not Godly. That's not LOVE. WE ARE ALL SINNERS! So who the hell is she, or anyone else to judge?

I AM A PROUD CHRISTIAN! GOD IS LOVE! I KNOW IT! I KNOW THAT WE ARE 'ALL' GODS CHILDREN. WHETHER YOU CALL HIM ALLAH, JESUS, JEHOVAH, YAHWEH, OR JAH,....HE IS OUR FATHER. ONE ALMIGHTY OMNIPOTENT ENTITY. HE IS KING. HE MADE US ALL. HE LOVES US.

So anyway, I asked Aaron how he ended the conversation with his maid.

Aaron, "Well, she's 65 and she wasn't about to change her mind and she damn sure wasn't changing mine. I decided to let things be. There needed to be some forgiveness in that room and I decided to forgive her for being ignorant."

I said, "How Christian of you." (teehee) That's why I call him, "SUPER JEW!"


I guess I am just as bad as she is (the maid). Here I am, huffing and puffing in the name of all that is FAIR & JUST. I should have just tried to do the whole "WWJD" thing and not let it stress me because I know ignorance is bliss, but........I'M STILL PISSED!

It's funny but that's a common "rule" that is broken between a lot of religions, how is that Christian-like? How is that having love in your heart? No one on this earth has a right to judge another but I'm probably coming close to the line by even saying that. lol

Alot of 'christians' dont understand what being one really means you know. Ever see those evangelists like Falwell talk about why we need the Iraq war to get rid of those muslims. They are still living in the middle ages and so anyone non-christian is ripe for persecution and war.

I failed to mention before: HAPPY NEW YEAR, JAZZ!

One of the many problems I have with Christianity today, is what you've posted. I'm a Christian, but sometimes I see some of my fellow Christians get to the point where THEY think they can judge and determine who is going to heaven and who is going to hell; what's befitting for one set of people and not for another. It's just NOT our place, in my opinion. God will handle it.

Liz said...

well older people are very set in their ways so even if he had argued w/ her, she'd sooner fly out of a window singing in swahili. she'll how wrong she was for that one way or another

Dayrell said...

What?????!!! =/

*Smh*...ya know Jazz, honestly, I can't even be mad at that lady, if anything, I feel sorry for her...

Chuck said...

Yeah I also feel sorry for the maid. It's sad to think that, because she is so old, it might not be possible to help her see the error of her thoughts. You know you "can't teach an old dog...yadda, yadda..."

Jazz, I hope your holidays were great and I hope you have a great '05! You know I am dying to say something to defend our great president, but we all have our opinions...even when they are wrong!! :)

I'm finding out that many people, from Christians to atheists want to be experts on God(for the latter experts on his non-existence)-and it will never happen. In fact, the Bible tells us that "HIS thoughts are not our thoughts". And noone (living) will ever understand how God operates and why he operates the way he does. We in our tiny minds try to justify tragedy's such as the Tsunamis and 9/11 because we need to have a logical explanation to keep our comfort levels high of "life as we know it". At least the good majority of us have sense enough to keep our mouths shut, and don't try to come up with God's reasons for how life goes. Because no matter how hard we try, we will never THINK like GOD. Great post Jazz and Happy New Year.

that's awful. and there's no changing someone like that's mind. there are certain people and practices in the Christianity that can cause a person to really question why they support it. and yes, ignorance is bliss. you only wish that by 65 someone would have surpassed the state of ignorance.

Wish I could say I was surprised, Babygirl. But you know better than anyone that I've had so many similar experiences, that I expect little more from church-goers and bible-toters that call themselves Christians, when in reality their doctrine and actions are the furthest thing from Christ-like.

Think before you speak.

Sometimes people can be so ignorant that it's laughable. Unfortunately, Ms. 65 is far from laughable. I don't understand how someone can reconcile themselves with the teachings of Christ with that kinda lack of compassion. Hmph!

lis said...

That was the most interesting thing I read today. And your friend handled it well (in my opinion). I agree with your sentiments.

Nice blog... I'll stop through again :-)
