(-; I like it a lot ;-) too, too accurate.

Patrick Henry, Red Hill

The Fallenness of Man, and his attendant, almost depthless, spiritual, mental and emotional complexity serve to render
relationships fraught.

Mercifully, Love simplifies everything and, accordingly, covers a multitude of sins.

Puts a new twist on honesty, doesn't it.

Political correctness turns the public into police.  How has freedom of speech and tolerance birthed political correctness?  Where is the 'right' to not be offended in the Bill of Rights?  How come the only way to get elected to office is via deceit and lies?

If the people could read the politicians' thoughts, they'd be strung up quick.
