Revelations Revised, an Underfable

          Revelations Revised

Once up a time, God said unto Buddha, “O Enlightened One, what is to be done? For those who hear my words hear them any way they wish, and misquote them to send their own messages, not mine.”
Buddha said unto God, “O Creative One, you are more creative than you realize, for you have given them no mere Message. Instead you have given them a Language, fit for sending any message.”
God said unto Buddha, “Then they are not my servants; they are my children.”
Buddha said unto God, “And for that you must forgive them.”

Moral: The audience is always right.

Comment: Dear reader, you may read this fable any way you wish!
