Roman Polanski's Story Could Have Been An Old Testament Saga

OK, I had a tough time writing this at times. But my smiles overcame me.

Is it just me or has it dawned on anyone else that Roman Polanski's life to date would have made a great story in the Old Testament?

I'm no expert on the Old Testament, but I know enough of the themes of many of the stories that I see that if Polanski was born 3000 years earlier, he would either be a hero, tragic character, or villain, depending on the writer's interpretation of what Polanski did in context to what God desired him to do.

I checked a brief biography of Polanski's life on Wikipedia. His parents were agnostics, his mother born brought up Catholic (having a Catholic mother and a Jewish father), and his father was born a Jew.

Right there, God could have took a hissy fit and punish Polanski's dad for marrying a non Jew, and he could have put a pox on the family for that. In fact, that pox and hissy fit could have originated with Polanski's father, a Jew, who committed "the sin" of intermarriage. Again, it depends on what the bible writer wants to write and how he writes it.

Since most of you know the rest of the story. Let me state in with a biblical slant.
I've decided to place God's original wrath on Polanski's mother's father.

God was pissed that this Russian Jew would marry a Catholic and then raise his children Catholic. This pissed him off big time, but he waited to unleash his wrath.

One of the children Bula, was poison to God. Not only was she the product of a mixed marriage, and a doubter, she had to take it a step further, and seek out and seduce another Jew like her mother did. This made God froth at the mouth.

This intermarriage stuff was getting out of hand. God had to create the settings for the Holocaust to teach the Jews a lesson. And it was Bula's fault for putting him over the edge.

God wanted to punish Jews for marrying non Jews and non Jews for marrying Jews. Hitler was the perfect guy for the job, because Hitler didn't give a hoot about Jewish laws that state a Jew is a Jew by either religion or if the mother is a Jew. Hitler was down with what God wanted. He considered anyone who even had one Jewish grandparent to be a Jew.

The Polanski's were taken to concentration camps. God thought for a second, which Polanski should die. One needs to die, or what is the point? Bula, was the best choice. She would probably marry another Jew if she survived the camps. And women are only important to God if they are ethnic Jews. So Bula was killed, her husband allowed to live and reflect on his choice, and Roman was allowed to escape. God wasn't through with Roman yet.

Polanski was brought up Catholic from there. He was in fact, not an ethic Jew anyway, nor a religious one, God wanted to show the world what a mess the product of a mixed marriage can become.

The first thing God did was to inflict Polanski with the idea that 13 year old girls are hot, no matter how old you are. And God gave Polanski extra free will to act on his urges. Even though God gave everyone the same extra free will and the same desires during biblical times, this is now and that was then.

God saw that Polanski was unsure of his existence, and God wanted no part of Polanski believing in him even considering his existence. God just wanted to prove to the rest of the world he exists.

So God punished him some more, by sending a band of heathens who were worshiping false prophets to do his work. Polanski's wife, Sharon Tate was brutally murdered, in a way that made God smile.

So now, Polanski was faithless. But what else could God do to show the world that intermarriage is a grave sin? He did bless Roman with the urge to have sex with very young girls. So he tempted Roman with one, and Roman, who knew better, couldn't prevent the God given urge he had to booze up a 13 year and then rape her anally. God figured it would be cool to ad some Sodom and Gomorrah into Roman's story.

Even though back in biblical times, Roman wouldn't have received even a question when it came to raping a thirteen year old girl, God knew the times had changed enough and the general population developed ethics that contradicted those in the bible, and Roman had to flee.

For thirty years (why not 40?), he has been in exile. And the world now knoweth that intermarriage for Jews is a big no no.

The story continues.
