jim k, Austin

This is right on target. Great quote.

Ronw13, Yachats Or

What is sin, and where does it originate from ? What are the cords binding ? What then will free the man from guilt ? The guiding force to make a way to turn from temptation ? To speak the right thing rather than compromise ? To love rather than hate ? Even when it hurts.

E Archer, NYC

If only the Church and State (with the help of all the busy-bodies and control freaks) would therefore allow the natural law instead of enforcing civil laws aimed at the punishment of sins...

Mike, Norwalk

Those that can not accept responsibility for their own actions (and results thereof/to) must blame others. Politics, multiple of individuals/society and religion of less developed malefactors demonstrate the fallacious philosophy of punishing for victimless crimes.

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

Objectively, the lot of Fallen Man is to be punished by and, ultimately, for his sins.
