Subject: RE: BS: Advice for anti-war anti-bushites here
I have no objection to people relying on God alone, Martin, and the cross is a symbol I don't identify with much.

The subject of Jesus just happened to come up, and I do admire his teachings and example. I could say the same of Krishna or Buddha or Lao-Tse, if it comes to that, and of many others.

Not judging others, folks, does NOT mean one is incapable of resisting evil, defending oneself, and taking necessary action in any emergency or situation. By no means. It just means not saying inside yourself (or openly) about another, "I am better than you. You are dirt under my feet. You're no good. Neither are those who are like you. You deserve no mercy. I am going to heaven and you're not...nyah, nyah, nyah!". Such inner assumptions poison a person, bit by bit.

Is your passion driven by hatred or love? In most cases, it's some of both. It would be wise to weed out the hatred as time goes by. But I speak only for myself, because I'm not anyone else's keeper, am I?
