A man is walking by the zoo when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage.
Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to devour her right
in front the little girl's screaming parents.
The man runs to the cage, hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the man brings her to her terrified
parents, who thank him endlessly.
A reporter has seen the whole scene, and addressing the man, says: 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave
thing I saw a man do in my whole life.'
'Why, it was nothing,' said the man, 'really, the lion was behind bars and I knew God would protect me just
as He did Daniel in the lion's den long, long ago.
I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt was right.'
'I noticed a Bible in your pocket.' said the journalist.
'Yes, I'm a Christian and was on my way to a Bible study' the man replies.
'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow papers will have this on first page.'
The journalist leaves.
The following morning the man buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on first page:
'Right Wing Christian Fundamentalist Assaults African Immigrant and Steals His lunch.'
Why does this not surprise us????
Thanks Ralph. Doesn’t surprise me at all.
