Re: Women and bad boys

Thank you very much for the very kind words, sir.

Your words too - I treasure as well. I listen heartedly, for I know you to be a worldly man, sophisticated and cultured, intelligent and wise. And very witty to boot. :)

I've said it before - compliments from you are worth 10 of others. :)

Some people are like animals - and you may treat them as such:

A whip is for the horse, a bridle for the donkey, And a rod for the back of fools.
--Proverbs 26:3

Some people are stubborn and prone to laziness. That's why the boss has to pull out the "whip" and get people to work. Some people are just faithful workmen - but they are lost and need to be led by others. And the rest - they deserve to be beaten within one inch of their life. And they usually do as they are foolish enough to meet up with the wrong person one day.

Now, as a Catholic, I'm not one to usually take scripture and turn into a fundamentalist and take the words all literally. In my opinion, that would be fool hearty - all though some sects of Christianity do just that. They take an English translation from scripture written over thousands of years ago (translated through several languages), in a completely different context and cultural setting - and take the translation and apply to this modern age. I just don't believe in that.

I mean, are we supposed to believe that we must drag a homosexual out into the street and "stone" him/her to death because "The Bible tells us so?" Nonsense.

But some things never change over the many years. One of those is the nature of people. Jealousy, greed, envy, hatred, stubbornness. Unfortunately, as many good qualities there are in a human beings - the worst can show their ugly side quite readily and easily.

But as for the Provers quote, some words, well, they just seem to be ageless and timeless. And they just make good sense.

We still listen to listen to the wise words of Nietzsche, Sun Tzu, Lao Tze and the "Tao Te Ching," The Buddha, Christ - all good philosophers... and all have a good message to say. Love is ultimate and forever, hatred and anger only cause undo destruction, violence, suffering, and pain.

Shield yourself with love, and the badness will break as easily as water against the shore.
