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)
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!
