And
the man
and his wife
were both
naked,
and were
not ashamed.
[Genesis 2:25]
***********************
"I hate
all this hatred,
Lord."

[NOD.]

"It's HORRIBLE."

"Yes,
My child."

"Hatred just
begets
hatred,
DOESN'T it?"

[PATIENT NOD.]

"Why do FRENCH*,
and American...
women wear BRAS?"
(Look up.)
"What's the DIFFERENCE?"

[SIGH.]
"Oy vey 'z mir,
child."

(Derisive snort.)
"It's all CULTURAL,
AIN'T it?"

[PATIENT SIGH.]

(Squint at the ceiling.)
"Is this too
EMBARRASSING,
for You,
LORD?"

[CHUCKLE.]

(Shaking scruffy head.)
"If a woman went
out....in THIS culture...
not wearin' a BRA..
people would get mad
with HER,
TOO."

[PATIENT NODDING.]
[TOUCH ONE OF
THE STARS ON THE
MILKY WAY.]

"Ya know what it IS:
people are just
PREJUDICED!"

[PATIENT GAZE.]

"WHY do WESTERN
WOMEN wear BRAS?"
(Stare up at ceiling.)
"It's so STUPID:
aren't they just as
BINDING**, backward,
and ......?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

(Frown.)
(Pause.)
"I can't think of another
good 'B' word,
Lord."

[NOD.]

"Can YOU
think of ONE?"

[CHUCKLE.]

(Squint.)
"Let's see.....
BEASTLY?
BOUGHT-FOR-MEN?
B-SEXIST?
BELLIGERENTLY-IN
-BONDAGE?"
(Grimmace.)
(Pause.)
"I don't have a very
good VOCBULARY,
Lord."

[PATIENT VOICE.]
"Go to bed,
child."

(Thoughtful squint.)
(Silence.)
(Snarl.)
"Like......WIVES... in
THIS CULTURE...
are treated with
such RESPECT?"
(Spit.)
"Yeah....RIGHT.
Tell me.....ANOTHER.
HAH!"
(Laugh!)

[SIGH.]

"Don't get me
STARTED.....
LORD!"

[PATIENT FROWN.]
"I'm not,
child."

"Ya know:
I really shouldn't
read these ARTICLES,
on the internet,
Lord. They just me
all riled-UP."

[NODDING.]

"Well......I just
had to say somethin',
Lord. I just don't
like when people
show how much
PREJUDICE,
they have."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"It's disgusting."

[PATIENT GAZE
AT THE UPSIDE-DOWN
MOON OVER TEXAS.]

"People should mind
their own BUSINESS."

[PATIENT GAZE
UPON THE SINFUL EARTH.]

(Frowning.)
(Second derisive snort.)
"Like.....
MARRIAGES
in THIS CULTURE..
are so WONDERFUL?
OY!
PLEASE!"

[SIGH.]
"Go to bed,
child."

"Yeah,
Lord."

[SHAKE HEAD,
GAZING DOWN
AT HIS UNSETTLING
CHILD.]

"You're right,
Lord."

[NOD.]

"But.....
first,
I gotta take
my BRA.. outta
the DRYER."
(Laugh!)
(Look up at the ceiling.)
(Laughing!)

[SIGH.]
*********************
Who told you
that
you
were naked?
[Gensis 3:11]

*Referring to
an article, today,
discussing France's
consideration of
a ban-on-burqa's.
