What would an all-powerful, omnicient being need...

... mere people to harass doctors and their patients for?

The trespassing, the hate, the harassment, the efforts at shaming and guilting, the thinly veiled threat of violence via wanted posters and the public posting of names, street addresses, etc...

It's disturbing enough that some can, with a straight face, spin the above as "praying for", "giving guidance", "providing counseling", etc... How on earth do the people involved square all of the above with the notion of an infinitely wise monotheistic being and/or the biblical account of the message/life of Jesus.

Yes, strange, is it not?

"Spin", "hype" and their various relations are on one side (the sinister!) of a continuum that at the extreme of the other side has "truth" and "right".

For me, the saddest part is how the inadequacies of mainstream religion have poisoned the Well of Meaning and Purpose if not for all time then for a very long time. Yes it's a mixed metaphor but you know what I mean.

But don't look too closely at Jesus -- you might be surprised at the inadequacies you find there. Which is not surprising, I suppose, for the offspring of a self-admittedly wrathful and jealous psychopath who gets off on forcing people to murder their own children!

I agree, MM, especially with the well-poisoning.

And don't get me wrong, the "Good News" of the NT is far from perfect, but it seems to me to be somewhat of an improvement on the bloodlust of the Old Testament.
