More things they forget…

I've been reading my Bible a lot lately.

...

Hold on. You okay? Get up off the floor. Now, sit down. Relax. It's going to be okay.

Yes, the Atheist has been reading his Bible.

I have three.

Why? Well the right-wing neo-con-artists have done their amount of spouting about how Jesus hated gays, how Jesus hated the sick, how Jesus hated the poor…

As close as I recall, Jesus didn't hate anyone.

So, I was reading the other night. Ephesians. Chapter 5. Verse 21.

"Be subject to one another…"

Subject to one another?

There's something you don't see. What would the world be like if we did as the Bible says, if we were subject to one another? Subject to the poor? Subject to the meek? Subject to the weak? Subject to the hungry and the sick and less fortunate?

It would be a world without right-wing neo-con-victs, that's what.

No wonder they forget stuff like that.

You make a good point, and I agree. Jesus hated no one. His message was of love, pure and simple. True Christians do just that, at least we try.

As Captain Murphy said:

" The secret ingrediant is love, damn it!"
