Ripped from the headlines this one is. Honestly I’m pretty pissed off at the moment at the sheer stupidity of this so I should be writing this later but I really want to write it now.

I respect someones right to practice their faith but when you are standing around in a circle and a 14 year girl is getting water poured into her eye by some guy rambling about demons, everyone else there should have shown a bit of  “common” sense and said “This is sick” then refused to allow it.

I don’t know if this kind of mob mentality can ever be fixed or if its just something hardwired in everyone but at the very least schools and social programs should be moving away from military bootcamps and towards encouraging people to think for themselves.

yeah I read this last night. it’s pretty insane really

but do you understand that in those situations – spiritual situations – common sense doesn’t really exist..

it’s sad and dangerous

I wouldn’t really know, my family is generally pretty light on the whole religion thing

I used to be a christian, and when it comes to a showdown between something spiritual and something that makes sense, well most times the sense is thrown out the window
