No One Chose Me

If I thought that I was a member of God’s Chosen Ones as enunciated in the Old Testament (or the Torah, whatever), I’d wonder what the hell was going on. I mean, in the old days when God’s Chosen Ones’ were so much as teased the Big Guy would go a little nuts and provide immediate revenge.

Check this out from 2 Kings verses 2:23-2:24:

(Elisha) was walking along the road, some youths came out of the town and jeered at him. “Go on up, you baldhead!” they said. “Go on up, you baldhead!” He turned around, looked at them and called down a curse on them in the name of the LORD. Then two bears came out of the woods and mauled forty-two of the youths.

Two bears killed forty-two kids because they teased one of God’s Chosen Ones!

Now you can’t even call down a simple pox on the families of Palestinians who blow themselves up in front of an Israeli internet café. I wonder what’s going on.

Footnote:
For what it’s worth, Elisha is also considered a prophet of Islam and goes by the name “Al-Yasa” in the Qur’an. This further complicates my Palestinian dilemma above.

Regardless, something wacky is going on.
