Ring those Christmas bells as a death knoll for Christian behavior. It seems Joel Osteen's wife had a conniption on a flight to Colorado for a ski trip. Details are sketchy, but apparantly there was something spilled on a seat and Ms. Osteen was not satisfied with the job the FA did of wiping it up, which lead to an altercation between the two and the refusal of Ms. Osteen to sit down allowing the plane to take-off. This is wrong on so many levels.
Where is the compassion? The flight attendants have a whole plane of people to take care of, why does Ms. Osteen feel that she is more important than the rest of them? What about forgiveness? It seems that the arm candy trophy wife of the pastor of the largest congregation in the US should have some.
How about putting others first? I was always led to believe this was a true tenet of Christianity:Jesus, Others, You.A whole plane of people had to wait an hour while the Osteens deplaned and their baggage was retreived from the cargo hold.
I wonder why the Air Marshalls didn't pump her full of lead like a bi-polar man with a knapsack or at least arrest her. I wonder why the Osteens were leaving on a trip right before the biggest Christian holiday of the year.
Well, as I have heard and read, a lot of churches will be closed this Sunday. The most Holy day of the year, and God will be put aside so people can spend more time with their things, sacrificing Jesus on the altar of Mammon. That God isn't striking these people down for complete blasphemy or heresy is all the evidence I need that God simply doesn't exist.
