When Charlie Hebdo was attacked by Muslim assailants a few weeks ago, a barrage of Mohammed drawings hit social media. Which I applaud in a way. I applaud it because I don't believe in living in fear. I got caught up in the mocking, because like I stated earlier, it's what I do when someone throws a tantrum. Didn't think twice until I made a t-shirt online. One of my twitter friends said he wanted a shirt that uttered the words "My other toilet paper is the Qu'ran." I told I kinda wanted to make it for him.
|This is the shirt.|
I'm also convicted by the teachings I was raised in. 1 Corinthians 10:31 says "So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." How am I bringing glory to God if I'm mocking another's religion and their holy book in that way?
So, what I'm deciding as of now, I need to step back. I want people to see Jesus through me. That can't happen if I'm openly ridiculing other religions and beliefs. Will it stop completely? No. Let's be serious. I'm human, plus I love a great joke.
