Let’s say, hypothetically, a group of television industry folks gathered to brainstorm for ideas for a new prime-time soap opera.
Let’s say one of the creative minds in the group threw out the possible title of “Good Muslim Witches.”
Could you only imagine the horrified looks on the faces of the others in the room in response to what was proposed?
Someone would quickly lash out harshly at the offender and then the others would join in on berating that horrible person for ever suggesting such a title.
“So, ‘Good Lesbian Witches’ wouldn’t be an appropriate title either?” the horrible person would ask.
Can you even imagine the violent reaction that would have resulted? That person would have been forever blackballed from the television industry. How dare anyone even consider insulting Muslims and homosexuals with such an inappropriate title and show topic?
It’s a shame that such a reaction did not occur when someone proposed a television show entitled “Good Christian Witches,” several months ago.
Anti-Christian bigotry has yet once again reared its ugly head. Anti-Christian bigots claim they are against all religions yet you never see or hear them insulting other faiths the way they do Christianity; especially the Mus-lim faith.
By the way, the term “Witches” isn’t the actual word utilized; it starts with a “B.” The television series producers decided to change the title of the show to “Good Christian Belles” at the last minute, but that must have really been too painful for they quickly changed the title to “GCB.” That’s according to the Internet Movie Database.
I reckon it’s a good thing for anti-Christian bigots that Christianity is known as a religion of peace.
Brumfield moved Clovis forward
After reading March 8th’s CNJ article about plans David Lansford and Randy Crowder have for infrastructure and the direction the city will move, I have to say I was a little amused.
Now that the election is over and the dust is settling, I have to comment on a few things that I have felt over the past couple of years.
Most people know I work closely with Mayor Gayla Brumfield at her real estate office, so I have seen first-hand her dedication to this city.
She has a vision for this city that no one has had or will have for years to come.
Not only did she want streets and infrastructure improved, she accomplished that goal. Several streets were improved while Brumfield was mayor, including 21st. Improve-ments on Llano from Prince to Norris are under way, and many other projects are in the planning stages. Hull Street bridge has been completed and the Ute pipeline is authorized and funding identified (including first-time federal funding). Funding was secured for a new west side sewer line. The list goes on.
What I find most amusing is that some of the money freed up from the quarter percent sales tax for the Ute water project will be used for streets.
Crowder opposed the quarter-percent tax, along with the High Plains Patriots.
What would have happened if that tax had been voted down?
I want to thank the rest of the City Commission and Mayor Brumfield for their perseverance in securing the money for the water project. Now we can have the other money to do our streets.
Also, thanks to Mayor Brumfield for being able to multitask. She did more in her four years as mayor for infrastructure, beautification, quality of life, economic development, and moving Clovis forward than any other mayor.
