Re: death penalty and value of life
His Infinite LoveTM doesn't seem all that infinite after all.

Re: death penalty and value of life
Certainly does to me.

Yes, I'm sure it does to you. That is disturbing, M'lady.

Re: death penalty and value of life
This has nothing to do with any god. This has to do with the blackened heart of the devout.

The disturbing thing is how easily a thinking caring loving human being can be turned to evil. Your religion makes it so easy to justify killing another human being and yet call it an act of "love".

Burn the witches at the stake in an act of love to save their mortal souls. Stone the disobedient child/spouse in the name of an eternally loving god.

The excuses have been legendary and far to often used. Kill the slayer to avenge the slayer having killed an image of god is just another excuse to shed yet more blood.

Your religion has made excuses that killed hundreds of millions of people over the centuries and there appears to be no respite in the future.

Your religion, as do all such religions, need to end.

That won't stop the killing. Humans will search out other excuses to do this evil. But religion makes turning love into bloody death far to easy.

Re: death penalty and value of life
Do you object to the hanging of the Nazi war criminals convicted at the Nuremberg trials?

Yeah. Yeah I do.

Can't be a liberal pacifist part-time.

Re: death penalty and value of life
I'm certainly sorry to discover how twisted your mind is.

Oh my sweetheart, you knew from the beginning. I never tried to keep it a secret from you.

Maybe it wasn't direct enough.

{arising}

M'lady, I am an atheist.

Oh, and yes...

you're friggin off your noodle.

Re: The Road Not Taken
You may suggest that I give more spare change. All I know is that I owe money on medical bills, have no retirement saved up, am getting older and weaker, and on top of all that find no evidence of any sort of promise that I have believed in.

How can your logic and wisdom be of any comfort to me?

His can't. Neither can mine. Neither can yours.

The issues you have are political. No matter what world view you care to follow your only direct relief for these issues will be political. This society sucks for so many in your position.

But we can change things at least somewhat maybe but we have to get political. That means lots of jawboning with friends, neighbors and co-workers. Gotta go man the phones and help set up the PA systems and racks of chairs.

But ringo is right. Remember, there are many ways to hand out spare change that do not involve money. A smile, a helping hand, a kind word, a helpful gesture all good for a sagging disposition.
