The Passing Parade: Cheap Shots from a Drive By Mind

"...difficile est saturam non scribere. Nam quis iniquae tam patiens urbis, tam ferreus, ut teneat se..." " is hard not to write Satire. For who is so tolerant of the unjust City, so steeled, that he can restrain himself... Juvenal, The Satires (1.30-32)

PASSION NEWS: On Fox News a couple of days ago, an associate of the late Khalid Muhammed, well known honky hater and pourer of gasoline upon racial fires, opined that Mel Gibson was a racist because it was a well known fact that Jesus was a black man. The gentleman held up a magazine with pictures of a black Jesus to prove his point; he did not hold up any photos of second century artwork portraying Jesus as a smooth shaven Greek or the semiblondish Gentile Jesus meek and mild much beloved by the Victorians, but that would be giving aid and comfort to the racial enemy and was otherwise beside the point of the whole exercise, which was, I think, to get on television and get some free publicity. In that the gentleman succeeded admirably.
