to say that the irony of being vehicularly assaulted by someone with
a "WWJD" or "Choose Life" sticker or fish emblem really does make me
remember those incidents all the more. Hypocristianity? :-)
Being a pagan, I do tend to notice the behavior of folks with
Goddess-related stuff on the bumper, and my observations suggest that
the "teen witch" crowd tends to be just as much a bunch of teenagers
as all the rest, while the older folks are generally pretty
considerate. Consideration is sort of "built in" - when you believe
in rebirth and something akin to "amplified karma" it makes you think
before you act.
On the third hand, there are selfish and rude hypocrites of all
stripes out there!
ps - One way to think of it - "There's Kristians out there. Like
Krab with a "K", there's no real Christian in them..."
The moral test of government is how it treats those who are in the dawn of life . . . the children; those who are in the twilight of life . . . the elderly; and those who are in the shadow of life . . . the sick . . . the needy . . . and the disabled.
