Neat day today, although I’ll still be in the frameshop catching up. But there are some literary I-gotta-do’s that will be pushed in between here too.
Got a red eyeball; suitable for scaring small children. I don’t remember getting something in my eye, so likely I poked it with a fingernail in my sleep. It looks wonderfully horrid.
Read that the Pope has reiterated the existence of Hell. Now see, here’s where I fell off the Catholic wagon to begin with; this and divorce. My rational mind tells me that there’s no one–absolutely no one–living or dead that I would condemn to eternal fire. I just don’t think everybody’s had the same fair breaks in life. I’ve said this before: If Adolph Hitler had been brought up by my folks, he just would never have done what he did. And here’s where I lose a lotta folks: If an innocent newborn dies and is baptized, he goes straight to Heaven; do not pass trials and tribulations–go directly to Heaven, like in Monopoly. Not sure that’s fair either (forget for a moment the horrible tragedy of it all and focus on the end result–if you’re a good Christian, that’s the best thing you could wish for your child). So, it follows that if I can’t find candidates for Hell, and I’m not the most forgiving person in world, then God, in all His goodness and love couldn’t possibly do it either.
But I could be wrong.
