"GOOD MORNING MISS POTTER!"
"Is everyone ready to begin their Sunday School lesson for today?"
"YES, MISS POTTER!"
"Very good. Then we will begin. Today's lesson is about.... Yes Danny? Do you have to go to the bathroom again?"
"No Miss Potter, not this time. I just wanted to ask you a question."
"And what is your question Danny?"
"Last week you told us about Sampson, how strong he is and everything. Is he as strong as Superman?"
"Naw, Nobody's strong as Superman. 'xcept maybe Spiderman. He's my favorite superhero."
"No sir Bobby. Spiderman can't make bullets bounce off his chest. 'Sides, he can't fly."
"Can too Danny. It's Spiderman! Spiderman! Hoot! Hoot!"
"Nuh hunh you guys. Barbie is the best 'cause she's smart and pretty and she's got a pony."
"No! It's Superman or nobody! I don't care what you say!"
"Children! Please! Let's stop this nonsense. Can't you see you're getting no where with your arguing? Now, so we can return to our lesson, let's see if we can't learn to get along together."
"We're getting along Miss Potter. We're just playing like we always do. We're not really mad or anything."
"I know it's just a game for you Bobby, but it's just this kind of game that keeps people from working together and accepting one another. I'll show you how. Bobby, you like Spiderman, is that right?"
"Yes Miss Potter. He's the best. Hoot! Hoot!"
"And Danny, you like Superman. What do you think of Bobby because he likes Spiderman the best?"
"I think he's stupid is what I think. Superman's the best or nothing."
"And Linda, you like Barbie. I know you don't care for the boy's superheros, but what do you think of the boys themselves because of their liking their superheros?"
"I think they're icky and dumb Miss Potter. Barbie's nice. She doesn't go around showing off like those guys do. That's what I think Miss Potter. They're icky."
"Now, let's see if we can learn to be more accepting of one another even though we all have differences of opinion. Linda, think now, is there anything you can say about Spiderman and Superman that's good?"
"Well Miss Potter, I guess I could say they help people when they fall off big buildings and things like that. That's a good thing. I'd like to have them around if I ever get on top of a big building. That's something good I guess. But Barbie's still my favorite, even if she can't fly or anything."
"Very Good Linda. Now Bobby, can you say anything good about Superman?"
"I don't think so Miss Potter. I like Spiderman. Hoot! But I guess Superman is nice an' like that. Yeah. He's nice. That's something good. But Spiderman is nicer."
"Now, Danny, what can you say about Barbie that's good?"
"Barbie? Do I have to say something good about Bar bie? Why can't I say something good about Spiderman instead of a silly ol' girl?"
"Because you think of Barbie as a silly ol' girl Danny. Please, think of something good about Barbie."
"Ok, I guess. If I have to. I guess she dresses nice an' things like that. And I guess she has a nice horsel. Yeah, I like her horse. Is that saying something good Miss Potter?"
"I think so Danny. Now, tell me Danny, how do you feel about Linda? Do you like her any better now that you're not judging her by the things she likes?"
"I don't like Linda Miss Potter. I don't like any girls. They gots cooties."
"I don't mean like in that way Danny. I mean, do you still judge her or Bobbie like you did before now that you've looked past their beliefs or their interests?"
"I don't know what you mean Miss Potter. I don't look past nothing?"
"Um, yes. This is hard to explain to you children. Linda, now that you can see something good about Superman, do you feel any better about Danny, even though he likes Superman more than Barbie?"
"No way Miss Potter. He said I have cooties. I don't like boys. They're mean."
"Ok, let me try again. Bobbie, you've said something good about Superman now. Do you feel any different toward Danny now that you're not critical of his interests?"
"I don't know Miss Potter. What does feel mean? Like with my fingers and toes? I don't feel anything. Honest. Should I?"
"Oh well, you can't win them all I guess. Class dismissed."
