Why would anyone believe a religion whose most authoritative adherents and followers were not and did not make a conscious, sincere, and consistent effort to be fundamentally honest and rational? Truth, honesty, rationality -- these, no serious person can deny, are among the ultimate tests of right versus false relgion. And yet how many are careful to invoke such standards when they speak abour relgion or matters theological compared to those who are not so careful? Clearly a minority.
["DICK DALE -"Riders In the Sky" (1963)"]
He's not required to 1) identify himself, 2) take responsibility for what he is doing, 3) face me for legal purposes, and or 4) otherwise face, own up to, and answer to the truth about what he is and has been doing on for nigh on 20 years. Now you see that's what, among other things, so exasperates me. Why is he being so privileged? What are people beng told or given as an explanation (to these questions?) And it's not so much that I demand an answer for my own injuries' sake, but rather one of simply who the hell is he that he should be so pampered, babied, and entitled?

Hell is war, and brooks no peace if it can help it.
If you stop and think about it, it's a wonder Satan didn't just kill himself rather than cause the problems he has all these countless years, and this due ostenisbly to envy and self-pity. What's the point?
There are those who would have you esteem them as worthy and wise. But since, owing to a lack of character and self-discipline, they can't really compete at much of anything, they join a gang of murderers instead and become fascists.

For our my latest upload for Lee's Legion, in this case pertaining to Joseph Addison's "Cato" (1712), see here.
Philosophy and science give you choices and alternatives where before there were few or none. With autocratic spirit people on the other hand, there is little or nothing to negotiate, and as a practical matter it becomes simply a matter of "your money (or, that is, whatever it is they want from you) or your life."
It's funny how the 911 operator has one of those voices such as are commonly heard these days in hamburger or car commercials.
["Brittany Murphy's Mom's Frantic 911 Call"]
For those who knew and had to know of and endure spirit people in an ongoing and protracted way without cease in their own lives, life must inevitably reaches a point when it's seen as not worth living. And as for spirit people Heaven, few or no one here except in idle day dreams sincerely and truly seeks it but, on the contrary, rather wishes it on their enemies; while they themselves more typically prefer family, friends, present wealth, and perpetual sleep after death. This is not on my part, as some might think, to mock true religion, but instead its dishonest and irrational counterpart.
