    i was walking back from the yoruba ritual at the river today.
    i been standing in the sun for an hour and i was tired. wanted to sit down.

    as i was feeling the spirit i sat on the steps of a baptist church over on the side.
    no sooner did i get settled than a security brother came over and told me i could not sit on the steps of the church.

    now, i am not a christian but if i was a christian and i had a church i would not dare to refuse an old tired man a seat.

    sorry that happened. sometimes it is easy to forget that when we are kind to each other, we are kind to God.

    Now this is very cruel and heartless, Christian or not..just plain mean spirited. He should have asked if you wanted a drink of water and let you be, maybe checked on you time to time to make sure you were ok, for that I am sorry, I feel shame for him.

    sad and a dirty shame how we treat our ELDERS today
    Sorry brother James but i'm sure you see nearly everything crazy wild and disrespectful
    we need to be good to older brothers and sisters because if we keep living surely we gonna
    get there too and don't want to be treated badly

    Do unto others as you would want them unto you.......I try hard to live by this !

    same for all faiths.....


    i told the young "christian" brother that i had specifically sat on the church steps because i wanted to be there, near the church. he said i had to leave.


    the actual issue is that some of us learn all the phrases in the book but somehow escape the meaning of what is being taught.

    I feel you bro but


    sometimes it's good to at least have some clothing on before sitting on the steps of any public place.
    The only place I heard folks could sit naked is at some beaches and a nudist colony.

    Don't sweat it, maybe dude was just jealous:SuN049:
