The war of the cultures
Posted by badhofer on Saturday, March 20 12:12 pm
The leaders of the different cultures of the world
are not unlike the catholic son, who was asked to get milk
for his brothers and sisters.
Once upon a time there was a mother who told her son: “Go to town and get some milk for your smaller brothers and sisters!” And the son walked out in the street and erected a large billboard with the words “I supply the milk” on it. His mother called after him to hurry up with the milk because his siblings were hungry. The son walked to a field where he built a church with the inscription “I am the supplier of milk”. Then the people came to his church where he praised and preached the bringing of milk.
From the distance he heard his mother calling for him to get the milk because the siblings were already very hungry. So he taught many people to become missionaries and told them to build churches all over the world with the inscription: “We are the true suppliers of milk”. He took the credit for the efforts of others, who came to his churches but at the same time did not fail to supply the milk to their siblings.
And so it came that the son, who now called himself “His Eminence, the Most Reverend of all Milk Suppliers”, met two like-minded people, namely another son, who was supposed to bring milk to his Muslim siblings, and a son who was supposed to bring milk to his Jewish siblings and finally a son who was supposed to bring milk to his Orthodox siblings.
Arguing about who was the most dignified and holy of them all, they finally started to wage wars against each other.
And so the night came and the war was roaring.
Finally the father came home and asked where his children were, and the mother answered: “I have sent your oldest son to get milk for the children. He never came back and now your children have all died of starvation.”
Now, what will the father do with his Most Reverend son?
