When Humor can be Holy.

When humor can be Holy.

While this screenshot of a post may seem like for laughs and giggles it really touches a more pressing topic. While the political debates go on and candidates start to refer to how they will make things right by abiding to the will of God and appeasing him to be in his good favor again for the sake of the nation, however who is to say that it is their God in specific they need to make amends with? In a critical view it is egocentric to assume that only their own God would punish them and that no other deity would be upset with them. The film Bury my Heart at Wounded Knee opened my eyes to consider such a possibility, because if such deities do exist surely they would be furious.

  1. I agree with you! I think the United States government should pay more respect to those who were settled here before us. When God created us he gave us free will and creativity. Now free will is a lot of power, when the Europeans came to the Americas they were quick to enslave an battle with the Native Americans. The movie Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee was a true eye opener and showed how harsh the battles were. My point is that the U.S. Should make more of an effort to honor what the Natives went through.
