2 Kings 1-3

The Facts (Chapter number: Verse)

2 Kings 1 - No mention of any women.

2:24 - Small boys called Elisha "Baldhead!" so Elisha cursed them in the name of the Lord. Then two she-bears came out and mauled 42 of the boys.

3:13 - Elisha asks the king of Israel "What have I to do with you? Go to your father's prophet and your mother's."

My Comments

Man, I guess Sarah Palin was right about something. Don't mess with Mama Grizzlies. They will rip you apart just for name calling.

Also curious as to how young these "small boys" were. "Small boys" would seem to describe children, and I know God is known for being a douche but mauling 42 children just because they called a prophet baldhead seems... well, overkill even for an extreme douchebag like God. Seriously, how petty is the Christian God if he'll slaughter 42 boys on the whim of his prophet? And how insecure and assholish is Elisha who basically brought this upon those small boys. I've had small children mock me and yeah, I've kinda wished they would get a good talking to/smack for being rude like that. But I have never wished them dead or mauled. Never even thought about it. It takes a special kind of person to want children dead just because their feelings got hurt.

Guess it would make sense that a petty douche God would have petty douche prophets, though.

Friday: 2 Kings 4-5
