Hey, You!

Illustration by Bob Aul

You're the volunteer "marriage counselors" at the South County church who are supposed to help your fellow Christians with their "issues." Well, apparently you weren't following the "good Christian" mentality by telling a very pregnant lady that she was "spoiled." Who knew that asking her husband to help with chores around the house and to assist in the care of their toddler was so horrible? Who knew that to make such a request would be considered being "spoiled"? Hope you're happy with the counseling that you provided that "spoiled" pregnant lady. Turned out she was so upset after the counseling she received from you that she went into pre-term labor. This "spoiled" woman had a baby with fluid in his lungs, and other lung problems, who is now confined to an incubator because he came into the world a bit too early. Good for you—you wonderful Purpose Driven freaks! It's great to know that an innocent baby is suffering because you felt the need to belittle a pregnant lady!
