    Who’s Responsible – Religion and Politics

    Remember this. Others may well affect various situations in which you find yourself. In general though you’re responsible for the outcome. Failing to look at things in this way, may result in dire consequences.

  • Inner Strength – Religion and Politics

    Inner Strength – Religion and Politics

    It’s often not an easy thing, to edure the struggles and difficulties of life. Doing, so can make us want to give up on that toil at times. That said, being able to look at the struggles and difficulties of gallant, valorous individuals, and realize maybe what we’re experiencing isn’t as severe as we’d like to think, can be helpful to realign our perspective. It’s hoped we can come to really understand, what inner strength looks like, when we do.

  • The Ladder – Religion and Politics

    The Ladder – Religion and Politics

    In the end, I guess my point is this. A ladder to various places at least should and really probably must exist. Some will argue for that path’s hindrance. For the most part, I contend against such perspectives because of their net effect on not just the wealthy, but everybody who might benefit from one climbing that ladder. You may disagree. If you do, I’d like to hear your logic.

  • Information Sources – Religion and Politics

    Information Sources – Religion and Politics

    My main point is this. We all need to look at from where our information comes. If you’re not prone to support, and attend a widely diverse set of sources, maybe it’s time for you to start.

  • Legal, Moral and Ethical – Religion and Politics

    Legal, Moral and Ethical – Religion and Politics

    Summarizing, just because it’s legal, doesn’t mean it meets any higher standard. If its ethical, chances are good it’s legal. That said, it’s not a foregone conclusion that it’s morally correct. Legal, supposedly ethical or not, when something’s a matter of conscience, it’s almost certainly the right thing to do or be. Keeping this in mind in one’s travels, is almost certainly, a good idea.

  • Voting Blind – Religion and Politics

    Voting Blind – Religion and Politics

    I don’t care if a person is a Republican, a Democrat, or something else entirely, knowing who they are, what they represent, and will do given the chance, is of strong concern. If you’re not willing to find such things out, perhaps you should sit out the selection process, at least for that race?

  • Misused Statistics – Religion and Politics

    Misused Statistics – Religion and Politics

    My final word is this. Please, please, I beg you, be very careful when presenting data given to you by others. Not taking the time to confirm what you see and hear, is likely one of the leading causes of muddied waters, surrounding things like understanding which health conditions are the most impactful. Take the time, do the research. If you’re not willing to do that, best to remain silent, at least where specific claims are made.

  • Snob – Religion and Politics

    Snob – Religion and Politics

    My final message in this piece is this. Just because someone looks unapproachable, doesn’t mean the person is who you assume them to be. That individual looks snobbish or uppity? Talk to them and find out whether or not that’s true, before making your judgment. You may be surprised at who lives in that flesh house. It’s also true you may be correct. That said, you’ll never know without testing the water.

  • COVID-19 Vindication – Religion and Politics

    COVID-19 Vindication – Religion and Politics

    My final thought is this though. You can think what you want, in my way of looking at things, all said to this point, adds up to just one word. I used it at the beginning of this little writing. That word is, vindication. Like it or not, although we may have overdone things, we certainly didn’t fail, as folks would have others believe.

  • Self Sacrifice in Practice – Religion and Politics

    Self Sacrifice in Practice – Religion and Politics

    I hope this little article, has helped you to understand what I mean when I talk about self sacrifice. Obviously, there are substantially more extreme examples as well.
