because part of being good is not inflicting on someone else, what you wouldn't want inflicted on yourself. part of being good is to come to grips
with the fact, you are no better than the guy down the street, regardless if you're religious or not. i know i'm not better than other people who
lie, because i know i've lied. i just don't want to be lied to death it's a survival instinct that requires me to speak out in defense of just
being honest, since that's what i've been taught. it scares me that there are people running around who think it's a good thing to lie to me since
i'm not their belief, political party, world view, racial background, financial strata or national heritage.
it's pretty much universal to want the truth, but does it also have to be universal to only want the truth for your benefit and not give it in return?
if so then again, i say, point me to the biggest and best liars, cause those will be the only people left standing when the dust clears. (this is an
example of wondering what the deal is with all these double standards, and yet i get harrassed by some of these same people for wanting to play a
video game in which violence exists, yet some of them would have no qualms about shooting other people between the eyes in real life, chopping off
their hands or heads, or blowing them into the next dimension).
if i didn't want people to question what i believe, i wouldn't offer it up for scrutiny nor would i debate what someone else believes. we're all here
learning from each other, i think.
