This Joke Isn't Funny Anymore
A Rabbi, an Imam and an Evangelical Minister stand in the middle of an old house filled wih hungry women and children. Around them, troops from various countries are shooting at each other and taking turns gang raping the women. While Chaos rages, the three "men of God" continue to argue about which of their Faiths is the one true Faith, each of them sincere "true-believers"bent on the conversion of the other two. They smell smoke - the whole house threatens to become a conflagration.
Whose side is God/Jehovah/Allah on? I bet you think our Creator wants the victims, starving and raped women and children, saved from their torment. Shouldn't we, people of Faith, want the same? While we stand around debating whose God is God our house is in Chaos and catching fire.
Maybe if we spent more time putting our house, the Earth, into Peaceful order, we'd find we have more in common with those we meet in the clearing smoke.
