Characters of the James Ray Trial: Genaro Interprets God From a Legal Perspective

3 short hours after the last post Genaro goes into a long exposition on waivers, and what makes them legally binding, and asks for some assistance from the audience. I guess that would be me, but I don’t dare add anything. I won’t post on the James Ray website because I won’t waste my time posting where my comment is going to be deleted.

After discussion of the waivers Genaro touches on the differences between Native American beliefs and the white man’s laws. Here once again is Genaro in her own words:

“It is famous that among ancient Native Americans a man’s word is supposed to be a binding contract and no signed papers are needed. If a man promises to take full responsibility for his actions at some sort of Native American event and is injured that is HIS problem. He promised to take full responsibility for his actions and that is that. Among the white man a person’s word is not good enough. Among the white man you need a legally binding, signed document in order to enforce any promises made between agreed parties.”

What I get from this is that Native American’s believe one takes personal responsibility for their actions, and this seems to be the core of what Genaro is harping on, the whole responsibility argument, with asterisks, ALL CAPS, and the rest of it designed to get your attention.

Genaro then takes her focus from the waivers and their legal significance into social contracts made before God. It is a sharp segue indeed and continues like this. If you get married before God it is sacred, and then the divorce attorneys show up and tell God to back off, that this can be taken care of through the courts system. The remedy Genaro proposes is turning these sacred vows into legal documents that people must adhere to regardless of the insisting of pesky divorce attorneys messing up God’s laws.

It is at this point that Genaro makes it clear that the legal system is a vile corrupt entity. And in her own words sum things up in the following way:

"I believe the Bible teaches that it is better not to vow than to make a vow to God and break it. I believe Jesus taught that to let your ‘yes’ be yes and your ‘no’ be no. All else comes of evil. In other words: DON’T PROMISE ANYONE ANYTHING!!"
