A Message to the Bible Belt
A message to the Bible Belt:
Compassion is always, always, always risky.
If you fear risk, you have no compassion.
Generally, how much a state's citizens
claim to follow Jesus
is directly proportional to how much
that state refuses Jesus' basic teachings.
Anybody who cracks a Bible
may judge whether or not this observation is true.
Yes, it's understandably risky
to help a person
on the side of a terrorist-infested road.
And it's often only a person
of another, despised religion (Samaritan)
who's willing to help,
which some homeless radical
(you may have heard of him)
very purposefully pointed out
to those of his own Bible religion
