A group of kids run out for recess. They play ball and chase each other around. A big kid, named Bully Bob, enters. He is surrounded by a gang of groupies who agree with everything he says. Bully Bob starts bullying the other kids. He pushes a kid, steals someones lunch, and kicks a ball out of the yard. When Bully Bob raises his arms to show off his muscles, the groupies around him almost pass out from the smell coming from underneath his arms. They cover their noses and stagger briefly as their eyes water. Bully Bob sees David, a.k.a. Little D, and starts to taunt him for being a Christian.
Bully Bob says, Christians are wimps! Goodie two shoes! Hey Little D! Youre a Christian arent you? That makes you a wimp doesnt it! The groupies nod and agree, Yup, yup, a wimp, Little Ds a wimp!
Little D stands his ground and says, You cant get away with that and you know it Bully Bob!
Bully Bob says, Ooo, big words from the little man, you wanna fight or is it against your religion?
Little D tries to hold in his anger, No, no, Im not going to fight you!
Bully Bob taunts him, Thats what I thought! Youre chicken! He starts clucking like a chicken.
Little D finally blows up, Alright, Bully Bob, youre on! Name the time and place!
Bully Bob says, Alright, thats what I want to hear! Tonight after school, back of the schoolyard, be there or be square!
Little D says, Youre on Bully Bob! But lets lay down some ground rules. Bully Bob agrees. Little D says, No punching below the waist. Bully Bob agrees. Little D says, No hitting in the face. Bully Bob agrees. He lifts his arms and says, Alright! People start to swagger and pass out. Little D say, And no lifting your arms above your shoulders. Bully Bob agrees and everyone breathes a sigh of relief.
The kids separate on the playground. Bully Bob does a series of exercises to get ready for the fight. He does jumping jacks, push ups, and lifts a couple barbells. His groupies cheer him on as they struggle to breathe during his jumping jacks exercise. Meanwhile, Little D goes to the other side of the stage and kneels in prayer.
Moments later a school bell rings. Bully Bob faces Little D and yells, Alright Little D! Come on out and fight like a man! His groupies gather around and cheer him on.
Little D stands and approaches Bully Bob and says, Come and get me!
Bully Bob growls and charges Little D shouting, Im gonna beat the snot out of you, you little weasely Christian! As Bully Bob swings wildly, Little D ducks a punch and grabs Bully Bob around the waist in a tight bear hug. Bully Bob yells, Let go of me you little runt and fight like a man!
Little D smiles and says, I cant Bully Bob, I love you too much! You can hate me all you want, but Im gonna LOVE you! And theres nothing you can do to stop me!
Bully Bob screams, Let me go! Stop it! Stop it!
Little D smiles and says, And another thing Bully Bob, GOD loves you too! And theres nothing you can do about that either! Yup, me and God, we LOVE Bully Bob!!
Bully Bob cries, Stop it, stop it! Youre hurting me! Stop it! Bully Bob begins to weep. Little D lets him go and Bully Bob falls on his knees crying, Nobody ever loved me before! Everybody hates me! How can you love me anyway, I really stink!?
Little D puts his hand on Bully Bobs shoulder, Its easy to hate. Its a lot harder to love. But thats what Im going to do, because thats what it means to be a Christian. I love you Bully Bob just the way you are, and God does too.
Bully Bob says, Thanks Little D! He raises his arms to give Little D a hug. The groupies back away in fear from the rising stench. Little D says, Uh, no, no. He gently pushes Bully Bobs arms back down and says, Youre the one who needs a hug today.
Bully Bob rises and throws his arm around Little D and says, Lets go play ball!
Little D says, Uh, what do you say, you go take a shower first.
Bully Bob says, Okay, little buddy! They exit arm in arm.
