If this were today in America:

Matthew 15:22-28 KJV

And, behold, a woman of Canaan came out of the same coasts, and cried unto him, saying, Have mercy on me, O Lord, thou Son of David; my daughter is grievously vexed with a devil. But he answered her not a word. And his disciples came and besought him, saying, Send her away; for she crieth after us. But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house o...f Israel. Then came she and worshipped him, saying, Lord, help me. But he answered and said, It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs. And she said, Truth, Lord: yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their masters' table. Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.

If this were today in America:
1. She would have been offened for being called a dog and would have created a scene.
2. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson would have stirred a riot.
3. The major news networks would smear Jesus as an insensitive intolerant religious hater.
4. Obama would have given a speech on race relations and inequality.
5. Eric Holder would charge Jesus with a hate crime.
6. Fox News would have O'Reilly, and Hannity bring on guests like Sarah Palin to defend the constitution and religious liberty.
7. Rush Limbaugh would have went on a proud rant of sarcastic arrogance.
8. All of the people would have chosen sides in the debate.
9. And sadly, the little girl would still have demons.

But...this dear lady believed and her daughter was healed, ahh... refreshing!
