The Parable of Gwendell: Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your fellow brother’s eye. — Matthew 7:5

Or, “harm to one is harm to all”    — Parable of attacking the homeless

*

Gwendell is feeling mightily haughty right now,  because he will be receiving government help to rent a home and to buy a truck, not to mention that he will be getting extra supplemental government cash assistance.   He is 58, has been halfway around the world while in the military 40 yrs. ago, has fine social skills because of his worldly exposure, and knows the difference between right and wrong.   

*

Oh, & just 5 months ago he & his girlfriend Patty Ann were homeless.  

*

So, thankfully he/girlfriend Patty got Catholic Charities to pay for his/Patty’s rental apt. security deposit & most of the initial monthly rent payments after finding an apt. in downtown Hilo.   I introduced him/Patty to the regular customers at McDonald’s eatery next to their apt., and he/Patty blended in well to the new surroundings.

*

Guess what?    Last night Gwendell cracks up laughing when Gwendell tells me that

*

Gwendell reported homeless mentally ill haole drifter John to the abusive Latino female janitor at McDonald’s, after drifter John stuck John’s hand into the trash bin to retrieve a used cup to self-serve John’s own beverage at the self-serve alcove.   

*

The abusive female janitor jumped right on top of John.   Drifter John, paper thin & in his late ’40s, almost had a heart attack from the janitor’s harangue in front of all the customers.  

*

Yes, Gwendell laughed even more.

*

I asked Gwendell, “Who you, brah’???   Unlike drifter John, you know right from wrong, correct??”   Gwendell nods his head yes.   I then ask Gwendell, “So maybe, brah’, I should be

*

like you and report you

*

to the welfare dept., the VA, the Social Security, because you dead in the water for stealing more money from all these agencies than drifter John will steal from McDonald’s for the rest of his short life in sickness  —

*

all the while you work under the table for cash — more able-bodied than Arnold Schwarzenegger!!

*

What you think, Brah?    You goin’ get abusive investigators like the devils (including abusive Filipino female manager with the blemishes on her upper cheeks)  you wen turn drifter John over to at McDonald’s??    You know how abusive the janitor and the shift manager are, brah!”

*

Gwendell bursts back, “Hey, you cannot prove I working under the table for cash.   So go right ahead and report me!   Because I got my ass covered, you bastard.   You like feel sorry for this poor sucker, drifter John, then you can go & put your hands in the trash container too, & I gonna report the both of you!!”

*

So I tell Gwendell, “Oh, deceit heh??    Last I heard, deceit such as covering your tracks in not reporting cash income based on totally able-bodied heavy equipment & physical labor  — is supposed to be wrong, correct???   Or do I live in a perfect world like you??”

*

Gwendell shouts back, “You real stupid, heh!!   Drifter John is dead wrong, so what the hell you backing him up for??”

*

I respond, “Gwendell, last I remember, you & Patty were scoping for scraps to eat, and I think hi maka makas (blowhard arrogant judgers) call it homelessness.   Right?   

*

So, since you and Patty  Ann believe in Jesus, what about the harlot lying on the side of the road whom Jesus protected from the hypocrite pharisees  — ‘let he who is without sin cast the first stone.’    I no think Jesus hated her for her sin.   He told her to sin no more.   Jesus wanted to show up

*

the pharisees for their judgmentalism & monstrously vain egos, correct??”

*

Gwendell shouts back, “Why you talk about the Bible?   You the stupid one,   Drifter John would get whacked by Jesus for doing wrong, you idiot!   I trying to correct the situation.   No back up drifter John if you know what the hell is good for you, babooz (“fool” in Portuguese language).”

*

I close with, “Gwendell you see the splinter in drifter John’s eye, and you laugh about drifter John’s blind heart!    Brah, I stay look at you, and I see one monster plank (wood beam) stuck in your eye!!    You betta’ fix your problem before you laugh at drifter John’s piopio (closed in Hawaiian) eyes.  Doesn’t Jesus say ‘judge yourself first if you gonna wrongly judge others??'”

*

Gwendell closes, “We go, Patty, I had enough of this stupid crap for doing the right thing!   If I no get appreciated here, no sense I argue with one idiot like Curt.   We go (home to apt.).”
