Don’t Be a Mad Monkey on a Light Pole

by Ron Gallagher

Katy here. This post on overcoming anger is our 11th post in the Breaking the Chains series. Ron Gallagher uses humor and Scripture to show the affects of anger and its causes. This is the first time he has guest written for me, and I believe you will be inspired to give anger a second thought.

Among the many things that this contentious political season has revealed is the uniquely bi-partisan nature of anger. Voters are angry, politicians are angry, party leaders are angry, and even pundits and news commentators are angry. A news story earlier this week about rescuing an escaped Chimpanzee fit in perfectly. It followed a report about a political rally featuring clips of angry people inside an arena making speeches, while a crowd of angry protesters outside were holding signs, chanting, and shouting their disapproval of everything supported by the people inside. Next up, the chimp—screaming from the top of a power pole, showing his teeth, waving his arms, and shaking his head. I couldn’t help but wonder, “Now, is he a Republican outsider, or a liberal Democrat?”
