The picture taken looks like a scene straight out of one of those flashy, bling-bling rap videos.. But wait a minute.. that’s Raila! So then I read the full story and I still couldn’t get over the
madness irony of anyone, let alone a politician being baptized in a full brilliant white suit in someone’s swimming pool..
But before I or any of us start to pass judgment on Jesus-Christ-super-star Raila, allow me to share this with you, which I think aptly relates to the topic as a whole and the title of this post:
I WAS SHOCKED, CONFUSED, BEWILDERED.
As I entered Heaven’s door,
Not by the beauty of it all,
Nor the lights or its decor.
But it was the folks in Heaven
Who made me sputter and gasp–
The thieves, the liars, the sinners,
The alcoholics and the trash.
There stood the kid from standard seven
Who swiped my lunch money twice.
Next to him was my old neighbor
Who never said anything nice.
Herb, who I always thought
Was rotting away in hell,
Was sitting pretty on cloud nine,
Looking incredibly well.
I nudged Jesus, ‘What’s the deal?
I would love to hear Your take.
How’d all these sinners get up here?
God must’ve made a mistake.
‘And why’s everyone so quiet,
So sombre – give me a clue.’
‘Hush, child,’ He said, ‘they’re all in shock.
No one thought they’d be seeing you.’
MORAL OF THE STORY: JUDGE NOT.
As for Raila, I will reserve my comments and opinions until I see how this baptism affects his actions in government, within his party and most importantly vis-a-vis his constituents.
