An Open Letter to “David” (the passenger who wrote the sexist note on a napkin to a Westjet pilot, Carey Steacy):
I understand that you were quite disturbed that the pilot who flew your BC-bound plane was a woman. I know you were upset by this because you left a rather sexist, ridiculous note scrawled on a napkin saying as much.
I don’t want to judge you because as a Christian, I’m supposed to do as Jesus does. However, I know from time to time, Jesus rebuked the actions of others and I feel that I must do the same.
David, on the napkin, you wrote down Proverbs 31. I know who and what you’re referring to. You’re referring to the the noble and virtuous woman, the one who is held up as the archetype of the perfect wife and mother in the Bible.
There are many sermons and books written about the Proverbs 31 woman. Pastors, authors and speakers go on and on about how diligent she was at the tasks she performed. But I once heard a pastor say that if you want to hide something from a Christian, put it in the Bible and it appears that this is the case here.
