The school Pharisees try to trap Scotch Jesus, but he flips their script with a clever conundrum and has them reeling at the thought of their racial apostasy being exposed.
One day, as Scotch Jesus was encouraging his class to feel pride in their ancestors’ technical and artistic genius by teaching them about the development of the European cathedral while gently listening to some Bach religious music, the chief diversity teachers and department anti-racist scribes, together with the school Babylonian lifestyle advisors, came up to Him. "Tell us by what authority you are doing these things," they said. "Who gave you this authority?"
“Let me ask you a question first,” He replied. “Half the diversity – is it still twice too much; or is twice the diversity, half of what it should be?”
They deliberated among themselves,
but found that their brains addled by repetitive tweeting could not reach a
conclusion, and so said, "If we answer wrongly all the pupils will stone
us, and we will become infamous as racists and lose our high salaried jobs.” So
they answered that they did not know. And Jesus replied, “Neither will I tell
you by what authority I am doing these things.” And the pupils were amazed,
never before had they heard such wisdom.
