You should feel ashamed.

You should. You, you person reading this. You should all be ashamed of yourselves, unless you are this guy.

Shortened version? A man gets off the subway to enjoy a nice meal at his favorite diner. Suddenly a teenager with a knife demands his money. The man complies.

Then, as the teen leaves, the man stops him and as an afterthought, gives the kid his coat, too. You know, in case he had more people to rob that night. It was chilly I guess.

Then, not satisfied, he takes the kid out to dinner. He gets his wallet back, buys the kid’s knife for $20 and goes on his merry way.

I didn’t think anybody like this existed out of fairytales. Turns out they do exist. Maybe they’re from fairyland. But they put the rest of the species to shame.

    I feel ashamed that I would have kicked that kid’s ass first before taking him to a diner for dinner.

    Doesn’t mean the kid will just go out and do it agoin to see if he can the same deal again?

    Personally the only thing the kid would’ve got from me is a whack around the head.

    Love for Enemies

    * 27. “But I tell you who hear me: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,
    28. bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.
    29. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic.
    30. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back.
    31. Do to others as you would have them do to you.
    32. “If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ love those who love them.
    33. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ do that.
    34. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even ‘sinners’ lend to ‘sinners,’ expecting to be repaid in full.
    35. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
    36. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

    t’s proven the the Bible keeps being the most effective Manual for Life.

    WTFF does this story have to do with the Bible? Jeebus, get a life. This story proves nothing about the farkin’ Bible, except that there’s always some do-godder xtian trying to claim that any good in the world is the result of xtianity (or whatever other pagan religion is claiming responsibility). If anything, the past 20 years of repuglican rule, and right wing moralizing has taught us one thing about American xtains, and that is that they are usually wrong about nearly everything.

    I hope the kid learns a lesson.

    Actually, if this was about the bible being right, the guy went in the complete wrong direction.

    Jeremiah 19:9

    And they will eat one another’s flesh during the stress of the siege imposed on them by the enemies who seek their lives.

    Sort of gives a new meaning to taking the kid to dinner.
