  •  ah the dangers of selective quotation w/o context (10+ / 0-)

    a dear now-departed friend used to joke about the man who would open his bible to a random page to guide him in making decisions for his life.  If the first passage was unclear, he would do it a second time.

    So he opened his bible and read "And Judas went and hung himself."    Being puzzled, he did it a second time, this time turning to the end of the Parable of the Good Samaritan, where he read Jesus's final words to the lawyer:  "Go thou and do likewise."

    "We didn't set out to save the world; we set out to wonder how other people are doing and to reflect on how our actions affect other people's hearts." - Pema Chodron
