If green were outlawed, obviously St Patrick’s day would be ruined, and some people would be rather heartbroken. But what if they went so far as to outlaw all green, even grass, trees, or vegetables? It would ruin the landscapes, and of course they would have to do away with flowers too, because flowers have green stems and leaves, right?
So imagine, no flowers, no grass, no salad, nothing but a ragged tyranny of barren trees, bushes, and stubble. There would be no hedges, no shrubs. Brides would have to have bouquets of sticks, or none at all.
I wonder if there would be an oxygen shortage? If there were, I have no doubt that certain people would use that as an excuse to promote abortion even more than they already do, because obviously it’s blatantly irresponsible to have kids when there’s an air shortage! Never mind that the problem could be fixed in a few months or less.
But even if there weren’t any problems with the air (My Mom thinks that the plant life in the ocean would probably keep us going) what an ugly world it would be! With all the gardens gone, all the trees stripped, all the grass either dyed, or sheared. In trying to improve on God’s design we would be perverting it.
Although even if this happened, I’m inclined to believe that every spring the baby leaflets and the tiny blades of grass that sprout regardless of the merciless poisons and mowers would laugh in the face of the arrogant fools that dared to try to correct God.
