Ick, am I the only one uncomfortable with how the ONLY woman who prepared for rain (i.e. the white woman, incidentally) is depicted as being in the wrong here?

6 “At midnight the cry rang out: ‘Here’s the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’

7 “Then all the virgins woke up and trimmed their lamps. 8 The foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil; our lamps are going out.’

9 “‘No,’ they replied, ‘there may not be enough for both us and you. Instead, go to those who sell oil and buy some for yourselves.’

10 “But while they were on their way to buy the oil, the bridegroom arrived. The virgins who were ready went in with him to the wedding banquet. And the door was shut.

11 “Later the others also came. ‘Lord, Lord,’ they said, ‘open the door for us!’

12 “But he replied, ‘Truly I tell you, I don’t know you.’

13 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour."
That picture has one wise woman and five foolish girls, right? But notice the perversion: this wise woman isn't in the wedding banquet celebrating, and the five foolish girls aren't shouting in despair from outside the gate. They all look tense, uncomfortable. The foolish girls look bitter.

And you realize, there isn't even a gate. There isn't even a bride-groom. Hmm... the pieces are coming together now, aren't they? Atheistic communism.

The wise woman has become the "have", and the fools have become the "have-nots". They are going to kill that clean, dry, white woman so they can take her umbrella. And the picture implies they are in the right for doing so. There is no God and no heaven. The ones who work hard and prepare themselves are punished so that the lazy and drawn-with-breasts can seize the fruits of their efforts. And that's their idea of utopia.

Shameful.
