Phil Hughes, Acid, Rape, and the Bible

National holiday in Australia over Phil Hughes’ demise. A whole Test match is Postponed. This, in itself, is No small matter! Each Indian cricketer would have received a minimum of rs. 7 lakhs for the match, besides his retaining fee. See below for reference. This is besides the Billions lost by Ticket sales and TV rights. Great World Sympathy.

Who grudges these to Phil Hughes? Not I. But: Why have We No Heart for LIVING PAIN?

Here is what Christ Himself, and thus the Bible, says on Justice:

You should have done these things without neglecting the others. … justice, mercy, and faith: these ought you to have done, and not to leave the other undone. …Matthew 23:23.

And here is What Christ would have said if He had been physically present today:

I was a Rape and Acid Attack Victim. You did not Even wear a Black Arm band on the field for me. And that would have been added to Matthew chapter 25.
