A letter writer wrote in this column recently, “In light of allegations against shepherds who may have offended members of their flock emotionally, physically, psychologically …” she goes on to ask “Would this solution reflect Jesus’ teachings?” among other posed questions.
The use of the word “
” in her opening sentence is one of the most offensive things I have ever read. As far as WWJD (What Would Jesus Do)? Well, seeing as he threw the money changers out of the temple, rather violently if teachings are true, I can only
to imagine what he would have done.
And as far as survivors of the Holocaust forgiving their “oppressors,” well … I guess I missed that.
