Leolaia said....... Here's another one to add to the list. Just today, Tibor R. Machan, a professor of philosophy, wrote the following in a political column:
"Jehovah Witnesses are often very nice people, certainly well mannered and often dressed spiffily. But their idea on the merits of blood transfusions is really, really perverse, like the ideas of Christian Scientists on seeking the help of physicians when one’s body is ailing. I am sorry but this is just so. Sure, so long as it pertains to them and they aren’t forcing their views on anyone else, I can live with both, although when either of them inflicts these views on their own children, I get very worried. Children are dependents, not yet of age so as to figure out what’s best, and when they are subjected to parents’ peculiar religious or any other sort of notions, especially ones that can kill them, it’s time to call in the trial lawyers, I say. They are injuring, even killing kids, with ideas the kids never had a chance to consider and decide about."
Now, I don't agree with his broader political points about oil, but this guy should definitely hear about the JC&S article! .......end of quote.
I couldn't get the link to open completely. Maybe someone else can. Even though this wasn't because of the "Big News" threads, it is still in line with what we are dealing with, so I thought I should put it up here, to keep all the news that comes out, together. Hubert
