A matter of trust

Aside from his horrible stance on abortion, I cannot trust the guy. Something is up. If any of this is true bunch of people are either paid off, blind, stupid or criminals.

And the Word became digital (Reuters)

ROME (Hollywood Reporter) - An assembly of Catholic bishops on Monday called for the use of mass communications -- including television, cinema, DVDs and even iPods -- to be used to spread the Bible in as many languages as possible.

The nod toward technology is not unusual: The Vatican had one ofEurope's first Web sites, for example, and has always been quick to adopt new technologies. The bishops' conference said that the stakes are higher than ever, arguing that the written word was insufficient for the modern world.

"The voice of the Divine Word must resonate over the radio, on Internet channels with virtual distribution (and by) CDs, DVDs and iPods, and on television and cinema screens," an official statement said.

Just because you mean well

Sometimes people are just trying too hard or perhaps they really don't give a darn.  Sometimes we allow people to wallow in their self-absorbed blindness for the sport if it.  It is time to get things pointed in the right directions.  The gloves come off now because Mr. Nice Guy is going on a sabbatical.

All hope lost?

I am very worried about today's kids. Well, not mine - but the rest of them. They have so much more crap to deal with in today's world. Today's media - especially the internet - is messing them up so much. Many parents seem to be clueless - or at least not in control. I can recall other kids doing stupid - even disrespectful thing - but today's kids are very bold and calculating.

Or I am just too old.

Too much love?

Is is possible to love too much?  Sure, Jesus taught is to love one another, but sometimes we take it too far.  If someone wantonly disrespects you, do you keep on trying to love them or do you eventually show the the tough love.  Come on people, sometimes three strikes is all you get.

And you wondered why it took 40 years.

Can there be a better way?

So much of what we do in life fits very nicely into patterns. We develop something to work with or supplement something else. The developed something never changes but the something else does - all be it slowly. People get so attached to the developed something that works good - for a while. Slowly it's effectiveness is diminished - to the point of being a problem. The something else begins to eventually begins to suffer.

Sure, a labor of love is put forth in creating the developed something. People like it and it is fun. The results are grand. However, some/many of the components change.

It really sucks when people cannot see that change is needed. Usually, there is a better way. There has to be a better way.
