Disgust

    Sunday, September 18th, 2016 - 12:00 pm

    There is something within all of us that causes us to be distressed, disturbed or disgusted. Again we encounter an emotion displayed in the life of Jesus. But what happens when disgust turns into contempt for others? As we affirm the presence of disgust, we will also draw attention to the damaging effects of contempt for other people.

    Disgust has always been proud of her refined tastes. For over a decade, her expert judgement has protected Riley from gross broccoli and helped her to avoid icky boys. After all, her job is to keep Riley from being poisoned, physically or socially.

    Although highly opinionated and extremely honest, Disgust always has the best of intentions. Her colleagues view her as a bit of an elitist, but Disgust refuses to lower her (and Riley's) standards for anybody.

    The world is a disgusting place and it's her responsibility to say so.
