Here is my latest Random Thought:
If I wasn’t already a Christian, I’d probably make a good Zoroastrian, because I don’t care much for folks whose lives and careers are built on lies. This includes fake Native Americans, fake reverends, and self-proclaimed "black leaders" whose skin color is about as light as mine (and I’m a W.A.S.P.!). Accordingly, one of my fantasies is to have a reporter or talk show host interview Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton, and ask him only questions about spiritual issues — nothing related to politics. For example, we could start with "How many baptisms, weddings, or funerals have you presided over?" And then maybe some doctrinal questions, like if he believes in the pre-Tribulation or post-Tribulation Rapture. When Jackson/Sharpton cannot give coherent answers to those questions, he will be revealed for the phony man-of-the-cloth that he really is, and his head will probably explode when he realizes that the whole country knows he has never been part of the solution, just part of the problem.
