Red Carpet Blues: Prayers for Quvenzhané Wallis

Quvenzhane-Wallis-at-Oscars-red-carpetNow that the red carpet is back in storage and we know who was best dressed and worst dressed, who won Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress. Best Director and so on, let’s discuss a more serious matter.

Young 9 year-old Quvenzhané Wallis was a big splash in her Armani dress looking so elegant and sophisticated but still holding on to her youth as she sported a puppy shaped purse.

But not everyone at the Oscars was as impressesed with the way Wallis carried herself. As Sabrina James wrote in her article, “The popular satire site The Onion tweeted the following to its more than 4 million followers during the show last night: “Everyone else seems afraid to say it, but that Quvenzhané Wallis is kind of a c___, right?” Totally inappropriate to say the least and definitely uncalled for.

I frequently speak of loving our neighbors (everyone is our neighbor) and expressing agape love for each other. The Onion certainly didn’t show young Miss Wallace any love.

Words can have a way of leaving deep scars and nobody should be subjected to such treatment, especially young children.

Although The Onion issued an apology the next day, the damage was already done.

Please join me in saying a prayer for Quvenzhané Wallis that she will forgive the thoughtlessness of The Onion and she will take the higher road. Pray for those over at The Onion and indeed everyone in the media, that a spirit of kindness mingled with truth will arise in our reporting.

We need to treat each other better if we are to live in a civilized society. With the genocide of the Black community, the gendercide of girls, sex-trafficking, and the willingness to kill our elderly, we are rapidly becoming an uncivilized society.

We need to turn back to God; we need to repent of our sins; we need to have a revival. Then, and only then, will God hear our cry and save our land. The other option is to continue down the same path towards destruction.

I know what path I am going to follow. Have you made your choice?
