Pontification

Imagine how much more pleasant the world would be for all of us if everybody bothered to think outside of themselves occasionally.

"Because I can" is a really bad reason for doing something. Maybe for taking a walk or chewing bubblegum or sleeping in some morning, but lots of people in our society today use it as an excuse for doing things that hurt others.

Oh, I'm fine, thanks. Just frustrated. Mostly by people who's faith (in God, or themselves or whatever) is so weak that it is threatened by the symbols of somebody else's faith.

Everything from Fundy "Christians" objecting to a teacher wearing a pentagram pendant to Fundy non-theists objection to a newspaper publishing Christmas Cookie recipes.

Or burning a flag as part of an "art" performance. Yeah, the First Amendment says we can. but there are an awful lot of folks that risked a lot and gave a lot to defend that flag and what it stands for.

I'm just being frustrated.
