OP-ED: It's Insensitive To Call It A "Good" Friday


It's come to my attention that people are still referring to it as "Good Friday." Look, I'm just gonna say  what we're all thinking: it's not Good. Nothing right now is Good. Today isn't Good, yesterday wasn't Good and tomorrow won't be Good. Frankly, it's naive and insensitive to refer to this Friday as Good. We're in the midst of a global pandemic. Have you noticed that? There's a virus going around and we're quarantined? I get the need for a sense of normalcy but seriously. Call it what it is: Another Bad Quarantined Friday, where you will inevitably spend the day scrolling through your phone, dreaming of human contact. Maybe Jesus should read the room before making the brash assumption that this day could be Good. It's just rude.
