  •  religious people "get me" too. (1+ / 0-)

    If they actually lived by their Sunday ethics

    through-out the rest of the week,

    Empathy would be their strong suit,

    instead of their cherished "self-reliance."


    Feed the hungry, Help the poor,

    Love other people -- Do not hate and despise them.

    We all have are flaws, and are fallible, by religious standards.

    So we are extolled not to judge others;  rather we should walk a few miles, in their shoes.


    All the more reason, to lend a helping hand,
    to those in need.  Not shun them as hucksters, and thieves.


    The Bible has a word for this "compartmentalized" judgmental religious world view. They're called Hypocrites.

    And their self-righteousness, does not excuse,
    their stone-hardheartedness.

    Such is the defining trait of a Hypocrite.

    aka, the complete lack of Empathy to those in need.


    Isn't it time to fix the Filibuster?
    -- Here's how.
