"Re: Phil's Post of 2/27 and Redheads"


One could certainly take issue with your comment posted 2/27:


 "Julia Gillard is our Labour Party Prime minister replete with ultra Ocker Aussie accent. (Originally she comes from Wales)"

"As if reflecting the now ex-Communist ideal she is also replete with RED hair." )


Your comment regarding "RED" hair is insensitive, inflammatory, perpetuates a bias based upon superstition, and more importantly, is unbiblical. 


I often read the comments after a news article in the British newspapers and find posters who continually and without apparent reason, villainize redheaded people.


In the United States, we don't, as a society, marginalize those with red hair, nor any other hair color for that matter.  I am also very surprised to have found such absurd prejudice submitted to a Christian site.


Most importantly, it is insulting to the LORD GOD as it is HE who created RED hair !  You may well remember that King David was described as a "ruddy" man (Rud = Red), and that Adam's name, as interpreted by many scholars is/has to do with, "red." It is certainly not established biblically that Adam's hair was red, but it is possible, and it is likely that David's hair was red or reddish. In any case, the Psalmist states that: 

 73Thy hands have made me and fashioned me: give me understanding, that I may learn thy commandments.   Psalm 119:73 KJV

Our hair color would be included in the Lord's making and fashioning of us.  Besides, I thought the world and Christians were to judge us by our fruits and the Bible says that God judges us by our heart and our relationship with His Son.

Perhaps a list of some redheads who were NOT communistically inclined would help.  These include:


Thomas Jefferson---George Washington---Winston Churchill---King Arthur---King Henry VIIII---Queen Elizabeth I---William Shakespeare---Mary, Queen of Scots---Mark Twain---Van Gogh---Erik the Red---Queen Victoria---Margaret Thatcher---Ronald Reagan---Andrew Jackson---etc.---etc.


So, the next time you think of redheads, perhaps rather than associating them with the communists, you will consider the possibility that they are simply ON FIRE FOR THE LORD !
