Mon...my deepest and sincerest condolences. I know your pain.
LH...I should think a "religious scholar" would know that the King James Version of the Bible is not the version used by the Catholic Church?
It's not my book but I do find it rather...situational ethics...Thou shall not kill does not apply if you think the person needs killing. Does that extent to the other nine? Keeep the Sabbath Holy - unless there is a football game on? Thou shall not steal - unless the person really doesn't need it.
They are the commandments - not the suggestions as someone once said to me. To suggest it is okay if it is a "legal" kill...whose laws define legal?
And how many of the rabbis were there when Moses got the tablets anyway?
I am sorry but I can only give you a 4.5. Interesting discussion but holes in it that a 747 could get through.
