The Editor Speaks: The Good Samaritan and Political Correctness

Colin Wilsonweb2The Story of the Good Samaritan is one of those stories from the Bible, even non- believers have probably heard.

The, following, is a new version of it and although it is a joke it is never-the-less true today how a Good Samaritan can end up with a law suit against him.

“A Woman Tries Getting On A Bus, But Her Skirt Is Too Tight.

“As the bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware that her
skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height of the first
step of the bus.

“Slightly embarrassed and with a quick smile to the driver, she reached
behind her to unzip her skirt a little, thinking that this would give her
enough slack to raise her leg. She tried to take the step, but only to
discover that she couldn’t.

“With a little smile to the driver, she again reached behind to unzip a
little more and again was unable to take the step.

“After becoming quite frustrated and embarrassed, she once again attempted to
unzip her skirt more in order to allow more leg room to get on the first
step of the bus.

“About this time, a large Texan who was standing behind her picked her up
easily by the waist and placed her gently on the step of the bus, she went
ballistic and turned to the would-be Samaritan and yelled “How dare you
touch my body! I don’t even know who you are!”

“The Texan smiled and drawled “Well ma’am, normally I would agree with you,
but after you unzipped my fly three times I kinda figured we were friends.”’

We are in a world of political correctness and Donald Trump has fallen into that trap time after time.

Is he right for saying exactly what he thinks or should we be like Hilary Clinton who pauses between each sentence she says to analyze it first?

Jesus wasn’t politically correct during his time but he chose his words wisely and avoided the traps that were set for him.

However, even doing that, didn’t lead him to avoid his execution. If the knives are out you are doomed.

The answer, then, is to win your accusers over and that is extraordinarily difficult.

With big business interests controlling politicians and the media, the ordinary person is yearning now for a change. They want a revolution.

Good Samaritans are still around but become increasingly rare when things are normal.

When the chips are down, and business interests are forgotten, we do come together.

After Hurricane Ivan, for a short time, we were all one. Excepting for some politicians who bowed down once more to the self interest groups like the banks.

When you look back to the time of Jesus, has anything really changed?

The self interest groups were there monopolizing the clerics – the ones who held power.

Do the terrorists groups care a damn for the poor, underfed, under trodden people they recruit into their armies of hate?

Of course not.

Does Trump or Hillary Clinton really care for the people they are crying to, to get their votes? Their promises? How much are they worth?

How much were the promises worth the clerics made to the people who flocked to them for worship?

Political correctness will not save any of us,

Being a Good Samaritan is our only hope.
