Good Samaritan

GoodSamaritan

The power of the parable of the Good Samaritan is diluted, because we no longer know the context. A Samaritan wasn’t just a stranger– he was a person from a different tribe, from a different culture. He was the Other.

Today, it might be the Good Atheist. The Good Muslim. The Good Nigger. The Good Faggot.

The Good Person.
