In the news: Madonna doesn't get Kabbalah...DUH?!?!

Jewis mystics to Madonna: Lay off our sage!

What did you expect people? She obviously didn't understand Catholicism...what makes anyone think she can understand another religion?

Kids say the darndest things!

C: "What does it mean if I die?"

Mommy: "Well, it's when you stop breathing and your heart stops and your blood stops and you go up to Heaven and you have to wait for Mommy and Daddy to come join you there."

C: "...or until they make me again."



In the news: Right to die.

The Supreme Court hears arguments in a Right to Die case, in which an individual state's right to determine whether people have a right to assisted suicide hangs in the balance.

Again we are faced with a question of law that really turns on your own personal epistemology. If you believed that God created you, if you really believed you had a purpose, if you really believed it was a sin to murder yourself and that a suicide victim's soul would suffer far more than whatever suffering caused their desire to die... If you really believed all this, then HOW COULD YOU support suicide in any form?

On the other hand, if you believe that we are all a wonderful chemical accident - that life is here for a short time to be lived and loved and lost forever - totally free, undeserved but also un-judged - that you go nowhere when you die except back to the elements from which you came...if you believe that consciousness is a chemical reaction in a noodle soup called The Brain...then HOW COULD YOU DENY a person's right to end their life however they choose whenever they choose?

My observation: Our views of the world are rooted in our fundamental belief about the truth of our origins. Our divisions are natural products of those beliefs.

My opinion: Our society cannot stand on one side or the other, but must promote the freedom of each to choose his or her own destiny, so far as it does not impact the life and rights of another. However, it does not follow that any government (state or federal) has the right to enact any law to actually help someone follow their respective choice or to allow another citizen to do so.
