God is not a micromanager.

Regardless of professed faith or denomination, some of us feel deep inside the existence of a higher being. That power is beyond description and it is not transferable from one person to another. The only way to recognize it is by unconditional submission which is probably the hardest task possible.
The knowledge of a connection separate from one that can be reached by careful reasoning alone is transcendental. This is where it separates itself from the daily human manipulation to serve someone's interests. There are no acts of subjective punishment, there are no individualized penalties showered upon who disagrees. These are effects of decisions made by the "free-will." There is no value to affection born out of imposition; God does not want us to love him/her because we fear punishment because that is not love at all. Love is given voluntarily and can not be forced or disguised which is why it is much more valuable than any gem. To God love is the gem, diamonds, emeralds and rubies are only colored stones that do not match the beauty of creation in any remote sense. God is the same for us Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Krishna’s, etc., we picture images, writings, words, messages that should be rightly examined but are apart from the biggest message which is the beauty of nature, our souls, spirits and each other.

"Agreement to disagree"

It is not fair that innocent people on both sides pay the price for the hate and motives of those who use them as shields. If they really want to destroy each other, let them do it face to face and not by attacking the civilians. In the end, the death of many will only deepen the resentment and the pain. The only solution is compromise, form a contract where everyone respects each other's right to live. How many more deaths until they realize that cruelty leads to only more cruelty? We must denounce the violence and not take sides except for the side of those who are suffering while the cruel fight over centuries' old bad blood and misunderstandings. Mothers who mourn their children are the same regardless of nationality or religion, they all suffer. Some have lost that and have raised them as sacrificial lambs for no sense whatsoever.

Discusting, despicable, atrocious. These terms fail to describe the reality of human decomposition. Why is it that so many of us choose to walk around with blinders on? Many feel they have the moral authority to pass judgment based on their comfortable surroundings. It is easy to take a stand against other humans at the same time that we condemn others for far less vicious infractions.
Sure, you can say that you base your reasoning based on "laws" but does that mean that it is right. Don't be afraid to think outside the box. It is not intentional to shock but only to expose, if the death of a dog is not okay, why is it okay for the death of humans to take place? because they lack protection based on "law"?
Reach out to the ones who need us, get out of the malls and the reality shows and face true reality. The world is full of desperation and you can make a giant difference just by saying that you care.
