What I Learned From Drag Queens About the Gospel
I've been watching " RuPaul's Drag Race " since the first season. Ru and her "goils" celebrate beauty and power of transformation offering the viewer a contemporary Gospel in sequins and feathers.

I know a lot of people are going to not like me for saying this, but if it were not for African-American "bitches" almost all straight African-American males would be totally worthless. Like it or not, it is a matriarchal subculture.

The author misses the point of the first gospel citation she uses.
She doesn't demonstrate awareness of the bit of Hebrew writing that Yeshua is quoting. She also seems to miss the ironic tone of the social reference to Samaritans as "dogs" prevalent among the Jews of the time.
The passage is wonderfully subtle, humorous, and one of the most human passages in all the gospels.
It's obvious that Yeshua is delighted by the woman's moxy, her sassyness; and because beneath it is still a very strong belief and loving willingness to scrap for what she wants.
The only other passage that comes close is found in the parable about the woman who just kept nagging for the justice she believed she deserved.
Again boviously, Yeshua concerned more with the content and intent than the delivery.
