I have seen that for generations there have been powers in place that have tried people and they have been bias, for the lack of the other perspectives being represented. Of course, it looks very one sided when the other perspective is introduced into the mix, because it is. Still, whatever we may think of it, as a person she needs to be tried, because she is going to sit in judgement over us. She has to feel the heat.
The Battle Hymn of the Republic rings in my thoughts, as though it were Isaiah 6.
Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord.
HE is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.
HE has loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword,
His truth is marching on!
The grapes of wrath are those foolish things that keep us from truth and cause us to sit under His judgement. The writer sees God's feet trampling them. That is pressure. He wrote that in the light of the civil war. I would much prefer the pressure of the pain of my emotions seeing a bunch of men seem to gang up on a little girl and pray for her to be able to stand her own under their grilling and have that "trample out the vintage", than a war.
No more civil wars, but, I would've come to blows over that in my anger. It brought me to my knees. My girl was on the slave block, I felt like. Do I really want her there with them? I am glad she seemed to stand. I am grateful for Obama, showing us how very far we are from true equity in the system and until all of the cultures and people groups are represented on the Supreme Court, the system will only be looked at by the one group who has complete control, namely men. God is not any one color! And the vintage, or wine that he is creating out of this exercise in history called America, is taking us all to another level of tolerance and grace. If we learn from it and don't come to blows again.
The discussion about her being a Wise Latina, I found especially caustic because she is a wise Latina and there were so many undertones to that discussion. Thank God, he hears prayer, even when laced with such caustic tones as I gave Him.
