A slightly-fractured “Biblical” tale is not really “religious” but isn’t intended to be sacrilegious either: just a fun and memorable way to point out the stupidity of modern Liberals and Tranzis.
A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, and they stripped him and beat him, and went away leaving him half dead.
And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side.
But a Liberal, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and ran ahead to Jericho and lobbied the city council for many days.
He demanded public funds to help heal the beaten traveler. The Liberal’s argument was simply that the robbing and beating were society’s fault so other people’s money was appropriate to help the unfortunate traveler.
He argued further that anyone opposed to paying was a racist, and finally after forty days of effort the Liberal and nine government workers headed back in search of the beaten man.
The man was long gone, for the Liberal was too late and the man had been helped by a Samaritan who was a follower of Jesus the Christ. This Samaritan treated his wounds and cared for him and paid an innkeeper for his board and bed until the traveler was fully healed.
The traveler had continued on his journey, blessed and protected from the wrath of the government workers and the Liberal, who arrested the innkeeper for practicing medicine without a license, interfering with government officials, and improper keeping of records, as he had failed to obtain the name, address, and identity number of the Samaritan or the traveler. The inn was seized and forfeited as being materially related to the commission of the crimes. When ditch weed was found growing behind the inn, additional charges of illegal cultivation and distribution of prohibited substances were added. The innkeeper and his family were sent to Herod’s prison fortress across the Jordan, where their bones still are.
The Samaritan and traveler were convicted, in absentia, for failure to report a crime, illegal practice of medicine, transport of injured persons without permits, and of course, failure to provide name, address, and identity number to the innkeeper. Additional warrants were issued for their arrest for conspiracy to cultivate and distribute prohibited substances and for self-medication, and illegal export of such substances, since they could not be found in the vicinity. The wanted posters with sketches of their faces (from “interviews” of the innkeeper) can be seen on the walls of Jericho to this day.
Now, tell me, who was the traveler’s neighbor and who was his brother’s keeper?
Mama’s Note: Oh, I like that one. Sadly, all too true.
