Survival

When I was young, I believed anything was possible. I believed in God. I believed in the goodness of humankind, and I believed that goodness could triumph over evil.

I am old now and disheartened, for I see good losing, drowning in the tide of evil that is flooding the earth, and I am helpless. I am being submerged. I hear reports of incomprehensible acts of horror and my heart grows cold. I struggle for breath and suck in only the filth that I see about me. The safety of the grave beckons.

What can I do? I will search for beauty. I will seek out the extraordinary acts of kindness that wet my parched lips with the cool water of goodness. I will renounce evil. I will hide from the horror. I will fill my existence with the glories of music and read words of wisdom and hope. I will look for love and friendship, loyalty and honor in those I meet. Then perhaps my head will rise above the sewage of the world, and I can breathe.

Satan tempted Eve

 It took something as powerful as Satan to tempt Eve, but it took something as simple as Eve to tempt Adam.

Human traits

I think the two worst traits of humans are dishonesty and unkindness. From these all else falls: dishonesty, everything from telling a black lie to embezzling millions of dollars; unkindness, everything from saying something unkind about another person to torturing someone.

What is the only sin? The deliberate infliction of pain on another living being.

I think the Christian right is causing a lot of Republicans to jump ship -- not necessarily to change parties, but to change some of their attitudes. Yaaaay.
