JUST A THOUGHT

I’m wondering too, how many of these uncharitable, blood thirsty posters would describe themselves as Bible believing whatevers.

 

There was an excellent article in the Oregonian this weekend on religious ethics. On how “an eye for an eye” was actually an improvement. It means that you can’t exact more in retribution than the original offense. In other words, if the guy down the road steals some of your chickens you are entitled to the value of the chickens and any property damaged in the theft. You aren’t entitled to burn his house down.

 

And of course Jesus taught something that went far beyond an "eye for an eye."

 

Given the situation in the earlier post it’s just a thought.

 

Something else that occurred to me. I can't help wondering if all these perscription drugs they're pushing are screwing with people'sbrain chemistry. There is so much anger out there. When they study a drug they look for results on the disease they want to treat. I can't help wondering if it affects other things that they don't think to study. Or can't get money to study. Hmmmm?

I just cannot get that little boy out of my head and wonder what his mother is going through right now.

I won't try to convince you that mental pills are harmless -- but I know that I would be dead by now without them.  I DO think they are overprescribed though.   People with mental illness need to find ethical doctors who will monitor them.  Just my opinion.
