 Heart attack today.

 

 Anyone else join me in prayers/thoughts for his family?

 

 He was human after all.

I know almost nothing about him so I'm neither going to gloat nor mourn his death. I currently work for a business who I don't agree with though (they sell and prepare meat), so I'm not going to condemn him for his job.

Appx. 155000 people every day. Some days one dies that I've cared about. His death I did not.

 

Why are you asking this? Do you really think we'd feel anything for someone who not advocates animal abuse, but also actively opposes human rights? And profits heavily from it?

I'm not for celebrating, but I really don't care. 

I will say it went through my head that maybe god was sending a message wink3.gif You know, like in response to the presidents words on "bringing the wrath of god"...

 

So what about the other 154999 people? You have no prayers, or thoughts for their families? huh.gif You felt this man worthy of special attention?

Even though I don't agree with what he promotes, I'm not going to say that he is unworthy of our considerations. I don't do prayers but I wish the best and my condolences to whomever his sudden death may have affected.

I'm not making special prayers or thoughts for the families of all the other people who die every day - some of whom I would actually really mourn if I knew them.  Why would I do it for this guy?

 

Also, from outside you never really know how people react to the death of someone ostensibly close to them.  I've known people who were - if not exactly happy or relieved, then not bothered - when their family member dies.  For all I know he was a wife beater or child molester.  In my own family there are thieves and extremely destructive people and it will probably be a relief to some close to them when they die.  If anything they need prayers when the person is alive so they can deal with them.

We dont have any of those in my family, but there are a few that might be happy when I die.

 Then the family can put this whole gay relative thing behind them and begin their healing process.laugh.gif

In situations like this, I think sometimes we feel the need to note a persons death after we have smeared there name and been their accusers. 

 

I think no matter how much we dislike someone, when they die (or go through something else terribly tragic), we suddenly feel just a bit guilty...Just a bit...

Fortunately, I have not smeared his name or am I guilty of speaking poorly about him, or anyone else (except obama but he deserves it)
