Colleen and Diann are in St. Louis signing at the Women of Faith conference, Denise is probably actually working, and me? I should be packing, but instead I'm thinking about how the Middle East is falling apart, and our world is concerned with Mel Gibson's drunken ramblings. Now, doesn't tell you why chick lit sells? BTW, check out his mugshot if you haven't. Drunk or not, this man is still hot.
But I digress. Isn't it interesting how no matter how old we get, we're still basically in high school? "Oooh Mel said this about the team captain, and we are SO not going to his show. Pass it on."
I don't care what you think about Mel Gibson's situation, why are we so extremely catty? Why do we enjoy seeing people destroyed publicly? Isn't that shameful for us as a nation? I'm not excusing Mel for what he did. He could have killed someone! But I guess I don't really see the point of destroying people because they made a mistake either -- especially when they own up to it. Clinton owned up to it, the world forgave him. If we are going to be forgiving, maybe we should think about being forgiving regardless of that person's politics and show some real forgiveness.
But it feels so good to take someone down in our righteousness -- which I do believe God said was like filthy rags. I want to believe the world is more mature than the snarkiest cheerleader on campus, but I'm thinking, nope, that's pretty much what you get.
God says to dwell on the good things. So go check out the mugshot. : ) Bad Kristin!
