While I was at work, I began to think on the parable of "the Good Samaritan", and how it has seemed to lose its meaning in today's culture.
Now, from my readings, lawyers of Jesus era and those of our own have one thing in common: they seem to often debate the law looking for loopholes that excuse less than honorable behaviour, thereby making it acceptable.
It is at this that Jesus speaks the parable of "The Good Samaritan".
So, first, understand that Samaritans were considered the unclean, despised and hated. They were an Abrahamic religion, similar to Judaism. In a way, one might think of them as Lutherans and Catholics, having a common philosophical ancestry. In another, one might see them similar to Sunni and Shi'ite Muslims - again, having a common ancestry of philosophy but now - often - quite violently opposed.
I've spoken of many of these things before, and I likely will again.
I am angry with the so called leaders who preach hate, I am disappointed with those who would place themselves above others yet sip at the sewer.
I am unimpressed with those who are so impressed with themselves for no reason other than their attraction to the opposite sex.
Frankly the anti-ethics of a loud minority who seem to have the podiums, the pac's, the radio and news shows scare the living lights out of me. They seem so intent upon their irrationality!
