Paula Deen used a racial slurr. In the past. Her entire life is unraveling before her eyes because she dared use the N word. In the past! Is this any reason for her to lose the entirety of her livelihood in one fell swoop because she at some point used a racial slurr?
What has happened to America?! I am in no way excusing Paula Deen, but the poor woman has already apologized countless times, broken down on national tv pleading for forgiveness and the world is unwilling to forgive. What about the insanity of the Martha Stewart scandal where she actually performed an illegal act with her finances? She spent her few paltry years in jail and is now back to publishing, baking, decorating, etc., being as popular as ever, totally forgiven by society. But you mention the possibility that someone used a racial slurr and they must be spurned by America at large? This is insanity at its highest level!
Paula Deen has done nothing ILLEGAL! She said something incredibly stupid, but the last time I checked, stupidity was not a crime. If it were, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt would have been tossed in the slammer years ago! The woman is allowed her mistakes. If people were going to be perfectly honest about themselves, every single one of us has thought some unpleasant remark about someone from a different ethnicity! No exceptions!
And why? Because we're all sinners! Remember when Jesus informed the infuriated mob of ravenous Jews that anyone among them without sin could cast the first stone against the adulteress? You know what happened? The mob disbanded and everyone went home and the woman was forgiven by Jesus! We're all sinners!
This high and mighty protest against Paula Deen only proves to me how hypocritical American society is on the whole! They've blown this freakin' thing way out of proportion and I hope that someday, these people who say one ill word against her find their one error paraded on newspapers and television. Before we shake our finger at Paula's infinitesimal mistake, let's take a moment to remember our own and realize if we want to receive forgiveness, we should offer it!
