After 3 days of near-catatonic existence, it was time to accept the fact of his determination. It was time to grant permission.

“It’s OK, Bud. Whatever you want to do is OK. It’s OK to let go.

“Susan loves you. Connie loves you. Ann Marie loves you.

“We found your paper; we know your wishes; we’ll do as you asked.

“It’s OK. It’s OK.”

What an adventure.

Strange logic

This lovely jewel appeared on my Facebook page recently.

Pretty, eh wot?

Ms Griffin's foolish statements aside, one wonders about the tenor and Christian viewpoint of the total posting.

What do people think when they plan postings like this?  While they write copy? What do they think they've accomplished when they post this?

What do others think when they read it and then agree with it to the point that they "share" it with others?

Do "Jesus believers" really think this represents, in any way, the philosophy of Jesus? Does it read like the philosophy of Jesus?

Remember WWJD? Well, how about changing that a little to WWJE--What would Jesus EDIT?

Most of the above, I'd say.

Spread hatred like Muslims (and that's a bit of a generalization) spread hatred? Jesus would say "OK" to that?

Any "Jesus believer" who thinks this particular attack on Ms Griffin is an attack Jesus would endorse doesn't believe in Jesus. That person believes in the most adulterated version of Jesus the contemporary Christianist can manufacture for his own nefarious political ends.

Prayer and reflection, Jesus believers. Prayer and reflection.
