“Pharmacists must seek to raise people's awareness so that all human beings are protected from conception to natural death, and so that medicines truly play a therapeutic role”

Pope Benedict XVI said Monday that pharmacists have a right to use conscientious objection to avoid dispensing emergency contraception or euthanasia drugs - and told them they should also inform patients of the ... via Fables of the reconstruction

Theologians certainly didn't mind interrupting each other's CLAIMS of supposed truth.

As in their wakes the blood flew in all directions, they never interrupted their own thoughts to say to themselves ... "I think there must be something wrong with religion!"

Many followers of religion have the idea that a god gave life and only the god has the right to end life.

If a god gave free will, then the life is owned ONLY by the people that live the lives. The god has no more claims over the supposed "gift" ... as a gift has no strings attached to it ... period!

So if the god gets emotionally up in a festered knot over assisted suicide for terminally ill sufferers ... then so be it. That means he went back on his "word" and all of his other words are also lies created by the humans that created the imaginary god.

I hope that if I end up with some wretched terminal disease, that other humans will have mercy on me and allow me to die with dignity.

Religion has all too often laid guilt on people who suffered horribly and were encouraged to stay alive until the supposed "merciful" god "took them "home."

Stupid dogmas.

If there was a god of mercy, the god would never have allowed a realm where suffering was and is a constant companion of all forms of life.

It's time to wake UP from your bitter sleeps and activate your brains to new beginnings ... or not.

The onus is on you.

I read of a case during war, where two American soldiers were walking through the after-math of a battle-field, when they saw a badly-wounded German soldier in the process of dying. The German soldier couldn't speak English, but with pleading eyes he pointed a finger at his temple in the hopes that they would end his misery with a shot from a gun.

Ignoring the situation, one soldier walked by, while the other soldier stopped ... took his gun and ended the suffering of the German soldier.

Morality is a matter of opinion.

Keep in mind, that if a god did the creating, that god knew that wars were going to be a constant among humans AND non-human creatures.

When I was in religion I used to justify for the existence of an all-loving god. I used to try to sort out how living creatures deserved to suffer ... but no matter how much I pondered on my confusion ... nothing added up to the concept of an all-loving god.

Now I believe that my parents and others who loaded me down with religion, were simply victims of the teachings, as were the ones who taught them. They gave to me what they were certain was their best advise.

But when I believed it was time to cut those chains of bondage, I said goodbye to the religious nonsense of my childhood, and now I feel free to do my own thinking with no weight of an imaginary god hovering night and day in my psyche.

If there just happens to be a creator and the creator IS of love, then I have nothing of which to worry, as the love would be unconditional.

And if the supposed creator is not love, no amount of begging for mercy will be of concern to such a wretched creature ... and the wars and constant suffering just might continue in the hereafter as has been the case on earth.

Either way, until I die, I am free from religion, and that freedom to do my own thinking apart from religion, gave, and gives me peace within.

I suggest you pray about it Jumper ... but whatever you do, don't trust the answer, as the answer might be direct from the devil, who is god's first in command.

I wonder about the pride that some humans in religion felt when dying from a terminal disease that kept them suffering and suffering.

Maybe just before they died, they were proud that they suffered by God's will and hadn't been "cowards" as to end life before God "called them home."

If those were their wishes, so be it. But to preach that a god is proud of suffering and convince others of the same ... created more and more suffering, as more and more people were PROUD to continue suffering (from their perspectives) to please an image of a GOD.

I received an email from a women who stated that when she was naughty as a child, her mother would say "God will get you for that!"

She said that it never scared her, but it resulted in her being very angry at her mother for having such a belief.

A Christian who had for years professed a deep "love" of god, shortly before dying from a terminal disease and was in a rather confused state, asked her sister ... "Do I believe in God?"

Before the sister (who was not of the Christian faith) could answer ... another woman OF the Christian "faith" jumped in and answered ... "Of COURSE you believe in God!"

Mankind is not on the threshold of a golden age. With that in mind, I wouldn't pay attention to anything else he says.
