see also "the ends justify the means"

A lot of blood has spilled because supposedly the ends justify the means.

I've never seen in scripture where Jesus taught you should do wrong to others in order to achieve a greater good. It just seems to be contrary to how scripture shows Jesus lived and taught others to live. He did go against the common teachings of the day, but Jesus was always thinking of treating others right, even if one wrongs you. It seems to me that Jesus would have this apply to how you treat someone else's property.

Religious beliefs are way too personal to try and force on someone, anyway. I don't think anybody with any common sense would be swayed by the defacing of a book (or of anything else).

I doubt Jesus would graffiti a library book or a bathroom wall, but I don't doubt that some of his followers would give themselves license to do so. Some would be so eager to please him, that they might lose sight of common sense and common decency. An irony about zealous devotion.

Jesus was a community organizer.

jeffrey McMahon

Of all the things said about Jesus, to say that he was a "community organizer" is the biggest understatement I've ever heard. Tom, are you being tongue-in-cheek?

Tom Welch

No, I was referring to Sarah Palin's negative reference in her acceptance speech to community organizes.

Ed

...and Pontius Pilot was a Governor!

jeffrey McMahon

Pontius Pilot and Sarah Palin; now there's a pungent juxtaposition.
