I get annoyed at people of faith reporting mass murders. Why?
- They accept guidance from a divinity and presume it is infallible. It is just them talking to themselves.
- They talk of victims passing or looking down from heaven. This is cartoonish nonsense that takes away from the dignity and sadness of the occasion.
- They counsel passivity. Their god must have commanded all this horror for some inexplicable reason. We dare do nothing to prevent a recurrence.
I know that most reporters are believers. However, they could be trained not to push their personal religious superstition on their audiences.~ Roedy (1948-02-04 age:69)
