Love Thy Culturally Homogenous Neighbor

| Orlando, FL, USA | Right | November 11, 2010

Me: “I hope you’ve found everything to your liking!”

Customer: “Oh, thank you, I have! It’s so nice to meet a polite Christian girl nowadays! You know, it’s always best to love thy neighbor.”

Me: “Oh, actually, I’m not Christian. But yes, I agree.”

Customer: “Oh. Well, as long as you love Jesus our savior!”

Me: “Actually, I’m Muslim and Jewish.”

Customer: “What?”

Me: “Well, my mother is Jewish and my father is Muslim.”

Customer: “Oh. When I said ‘love thy neighbor,’ I didn’t mean you!”

    Well done customer. Totally missing the point about the Good Samaritan. The Jews and the Samaritans hated each other, that’s why the story is so powerful. Also completely ignoring the fact that Jesus was Jewish.
