Why Can’t We All Get Along

April 28th, 2013 ernie Posted in religion No Comments »

we all get alongFor as long as we have recorded history, man has been fighting over religion, land, food, water and power. It seems nothing has changed and we have the temerity to call ourselves civilized! Somehow we all get along, but so far we have been lucky. If a visitor from another planet arrived what conclusion would they come to after they ignored the politicians and looked at the facts?

In today’s world we still fight, blow up people and start wars over religion and energy, oil. You would think that we would have figured out by now that the majority of people just want to feed their families and have a safe, prosperous life! We all get along one way or another, but many people suffer as a result.

Why Can’t We All Get Along

Unfortunately there are those among us that just do not seem to understand. For some reason they  have so much hate that they have to do things such as what happened in Boston, California. Also in other places around the world. Everyone, we must be vigilant if we are to protect our way of life in North America!

Eventually the current fanatics will be defeated. Then another group will come along. It seems that there is always a group of people who are lusting after power. Or they feel that their group of people have been taken advantage of and they need to take revenge. There will always be some form of conflict as one group or perhaps a dictator tries to take over the world. Or make life difficult for neighboring countries.

The answer to the question, “why can’t we all get along” is that there will always be some country or group that does not want to get along or takes advantage of the people who are in their country or living near them.

Pope Benedict Resigns

February 12th, 2013 ernie Posted in religion No Comments »

Pope Benedict resigns yesterday claiming frail health physically and mentally. He apparently has said in the past that he would do this when his health was still good. He did not want to wait until he was too incapacitated to make decisions and stay in charge of all of his duties.

But like the little boy who told a lie, we are not sure of whether we should believe him or not. He might well be telling the truth, but how do we know? This is the problem with the Catholic Church. They do not have a good record of telling the truth.

Pope Benedict Resigns

They have lied to us in the past on so many things that we wonder if we should believe them now or not. Is there another reason behind his resignation or is his comment for real or not.

We initially thought that when the Pope Resigned there would be other information coming out about why he decided to resign. To our knowledge, nothing has come out in the past few years so either the church did a good job of managing the situation or his reasons for resignation were legitimate. We will never know. However, given the church’s history they will always be suspected of keeping things secret.

We are not on a witch hunt. We really do not care about why Pope Benedict Resigns. But if you have information or just want to leave a comment, please feel free to do so. For another post on religious issues, click here.
