What I would like to know is whether black meaning bad has come to us from the colonial past or goes back way further to the time when black meant dark and dark was dangerous.

brentan comments on Oct 9, 2018:
I saw it too. I was very pleased with the effort they put in to describe the JW life. I'm sure it must be very difficult for 'normal' people to grasp the awful truth of the religion as a way of life. The actress who played the believing mum was terrific, while not taking away from the professionalism of everyone involved.

It was a poignant moment when the actor forgot his lines, perhaps more for the audience than the actor himself.
Narcissistic Sociopath Symptoms
brentan comments on Oct 9, 2018:
I think many Christians think all these people die because they can't call on God for help because they don't believe in the Christian God, or if they do, they call on the wrong interpretation of the Christian god. If you don't fall into those categories 'time and unforeseen occurrence fall them all' (Ecclesiastes 9:11) so it's just bad luck.

brentan comments on Oct 8, 2018:
Tolle offers a calm place in a storm. I enjoy his teachings. The question is how to get the balance right in a world demanding you fit in so as get your basic human needs. It's an even tougher question when you have a family. The Christian proposal to solve that problem was to 'seek God's Kingdom first and then all other things will be added to you'. I don't think that claim has ever been shown to be true. So caution is needed if a person decides to prioritise their spiritual dimension. I think it is worth the effort but living an alternative life has to come at a cost.

brentan comments on Oct 6, 2018:
Shakespeare and Cervantes lived during the same period - mid 1500s to early 1600s. The old feudal values were dying and Cerantes captured it so well in this story of a man who wouldn't move on. Shakespeare captured it in the earl of Essex in Richard II and his opposite in Henry IV, Falstaff the man with no honour. Wonderful song!

brentan comments on Oct 6, 2018:
I dealt with the same situation and now deal with the fallout. As far as I can tell, the suspicious mind can't allow for the bisexual to have any honour, integrity or other values that heterosexuals are credited with free gratis. I can't give an answer to a young person because simple old age put me in a position where I can afford not to care about other people's opinions anymore. I wish you well and hop you find the person you deserve.
Love ... relationships ... family
brentan comments on Oct 6, 2018:
I tend to judge moral issues by going back to cave-dwelling times and asking what habits were developed to ensure the success of a tribe. I think successful habits were later converted to morals and linked to approval by the gods and then a ticket to heaven. We don't have to go far back in history to see polygamy justified as a way to help a tribe survive. It would be interesting to know if our modern societies could survive the total breakdown of the old habits.

brentan comments on Oct 5, 2018:
I'm guessing you're dealing with the condemnation of the fundies versus the decency of the liberal notion of Christianity. And in all fairness, the liberal notion ignores some very restrictive rules about sex. I don't know what it's like living in Texas, or how attached to Christianity you are in your heart, but in my ignorance I can't help concluding that homosexuality and Christianity make poor bedfellows and atheism with humanist values (which are similar in many ways) would be the best move in the long run.

brentan comments on Oct 5, 2018:
I can’t help concluding that we’re teasing out when to play it carefully and when to start the revolution. History seems to show that no liberties are given without a fight. There are other factors to consider too. Ghandi proved the effectiveness of peaceful non-cooperation and MLK followed suit. Then we need to consider whether white men really are being victimised at all. Or women. Or black people, Jews, Muslims, the handicapped, transgender – the list is endless. As an Irishman, I’m particularly incensed at the treatment of the Irish globally and I am actively involved in starting a revolution from my barstool. But seriously, should we discuss whether white men really have a grievance in our comfortable Western world?

I hope the same can be said for you.

brentan comments on Oct 3, 2018:
I remember some things, like he was to be a propitiatory sacrifice for Adam and he was to suffer because Isaiah portrayed him as the suffering servant. When he died for Adam, he died in the sense of Adam being a father to doomed people and he being a father to people who would live forever in the way God first wanted before the Fall. So only one death was needed.

brentan comments on Sep 30, 2018:
I have to conclude you are thinking of terms of our motivations. Can they ever be non-egoistic, objective, or really even more than objective, altruistic. I find reverting back to the religious concept of forgiveness helps me clarify the matter. But religious forgiveness involves three characters - you, the offender and God. In our world, God needs to be taken out of the equation. Why would we forgive if it wasn't part of the contract with God for salvation? The Greeks replaced the old system of personal revenge for a justice system that aimed at stopping the neverending cycle of murder. Perhaps a reluctance to be part of the neverending cycle of revenge, and all the hurt it entails, might be the motivation to forgive in our modern world.

My friend is trying to turn me into a Jehovah help!
brentan comments on Sep 29, 2018:
I was a JW for 15 years. I've tried very hard to believe in it. My conclusion is don't do it. It is wrong doctrinally in so many ways, wrong in its murderous interpretation about taking blood to stay alive and wrong in its cruel separation of 'apostates' from their families, workmates and friends. It is also wrong for taking up all your time and condemning you for using your own mind to determine right and wrong.
