“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.”
- John 15:18-20 (NIV)
Good thing the vandals didn’t attack a synagogue or a mosque, or even a black church for that matter. The FBI would be investigating this for sure then and the vandals’ ass would be grass and in the mower.
The pastor is pretty sanguine about the whole thing. But he’s undoubtedly correct: whoever did this needs Jesus…apparently more than the parishioners.
Another thing, James. Why do the authorities keep blaming desecrations like this on Vandals? How do they know it wasn’t perpetrated by Visigoths, Ostrogoth’s, Huns, Allemani, Franks, Lombards, Gauls or Picts, eh? Racism!
Obviously, Jeremy, there is only one type of person doing violence in Indianapolis, and apparently they didn't watch All In the Family, in the episode in which Archie came to realize God was black. It would be beneath my barbarian cousins to deface the image of your hanged God, so I must chalk it up to Dindus believing again that God is white. Hell' they're just one more step from heading back to the planation gate!
