This video was taken at an attempt at an interfaith meeting to discuss social justice. The group gathered had a hard time and the meeting just about fell apart. Feel free to make your own connections to this forum!   Big Grin

I think I have located myself in it, lol! Big Grin 
I think I am the one who bailed at the mention of filming!!   Tongue

Seriously, is it not pretty close to how we all are at times?

Im the old man staring into the camera, next to the smiling woman.

I know you're coming in the night like a thief, but I've had some time alone, to hone my lying technique. I know you think that I'm someone you can trust, but I'm scared I'll get scared, and I swear I'll try to nail you back up. So do you think that we could work out a sign, so I'll know it's you and that it's over so I won't even try? I know you're coming for the people like me. We've all got wood and nails, turned out in a hate factory.

Some of the dialogue is pretty funny:

Q: "Why are you filming?"
A: "My friends couldn't make the meeting so I am filming it for them."
...Some unintelligible murmuring ensues...
Q: "You callin' me a liar?" (voice raises threateningly)

This thing started off pretty tense, and went downhill from there in lightning speed!
Amazing study for those analyzing human behavior (a hobby of mine)!
This is the next best thing to a SNL parody (Saturday Night Live)
I can picture the cast all in this scene! LOL

Ha! Why did I already have names picked out in my mind for these dudes?
They seem like lovely gentlemen. However, the two in the back are regretting leaving their popcorn at home!

You know, after getting my lols out, I rewatched and was struck at the hypocrisy of those of faith-whatever their chosen denomination/religion. God must really grieve at how we humans have missed the mark.

Just bumping this thread up since I have been encouraging others to watch it.

I like the conversation at the beginning "Your God might also some other people's God too but your God..." I couldn't catch it all, but the confusion while trying to be open-minded and politically correct was adorable Heart

After that, I didn't watch for much longer because the guy decided the meeting was over.

"Be the change you want to see in the world"

There's only one true judge and that's God; so chill and let Our Father do His job
