Thank you for your thoughtful cmeomnts. The common denominator in much of these atrocities and abominations of irrationality is that there seems to be a God who can't choose who to favor and who to punish. Perhaps, we'd all be better off were we to leave such a mischievous being seeming split between an internal conflict of alternating benevolence and malevolence to entertain itself by keeping it at arms length or beyond. I don't believe in Hell per se, but I do believe that surrendering your mind to the control of others is the best way to get close to anything like a Hell. Such is often the case when we listen to others who demand we abandon our rational faculties to live a certain way because of some mystical belief. With most, their intent is sincere, but as the saying goes, the road to hell [or hysteria] is One just needs to ask the question Good intentions for whom?
