Integrity George?  You are asking me what

Well George I guess nobody actually liked what I had to say Continue reading

Chicks, Eggs and Economy

 … About bible study and mental illness … Do they mate well do you think? … Ok George … Forget it … Yes yes I heard you … And yes I do recall being taught something about avoiding certain topics … Like religion, sex and politics … 

But George wasn’t that old rule thrown out along with those silly old books … You know … with odd, old-fashioned notions … Well? … Such as etiquette … Morals … Errr ethics probably … Then there was this foolishness called protocol … Remember … When people were forced to have respect for their flag.

Nowadays George if you are drawn to any of these things … 
Ethics George … Mostly ethics is what I am talking about …

Well … You really can’t blame people if they consider you sub-normal?
Is that what you really think?

Errr … When did ethics get pushed to that netherworld beyond the norm? … Well George  … Regarded as Abnormal in plain-speak …

Do you really wish for me to be blunt? Nowadays people who bring up such topic as ethics …. They are considered to be … Well cough cough … 

Embarrassed? Why would I be embarrassed to say it George?

Mentally ill George … Yes the illness with a thousand faces.  Almost everyone these days can be diagnosed with some sort of mental illness … Hmmm it’s what they call the new norm George. 

Even better than laws against petty crime … As for more serious sins … Really relieves stress on the court system … No need for trials  or expensive lawyers … Just lock the sinners up. 

Everybody has something to confess … Some little quirk of originality … I know the schools and teachers are working hard George … Doing their best to train the kids to group think.  

The mental health system? I’m glad you asked George.

As the typical radio  interview might express …  it’s good for the economy … What can I tell you … Go to your doctor … Get certified as mentally ill and you have a nice little pension check coming in on a regular basis … Imagine George … all that money going into the economy.

I am trying my best to be polite George …  Sarcasm? Who me? you ask me to be frank with you? Well … I guess I could try … But I warn you George … You might not like what I have to say …

Despite all the outside-the-boxness reality shifts of the last decade or so … Originality and independant thought is really not acceptable.  You can be as bizarre as you wish as long as you are not a social activist trying to do something foolish like trying to save the world … After all look what happened to John Lennon … 

That was a warning George … No I really am not into conspiracy George … Has nothing to do with conspiracy … Has to do with pointing out a prime example of someone who dared to be original and paid the ultimate price.

Well try as I might … I simply cannot resist one last little crack at it … 

You’ve surely come across the one about the chicken and the egg … You know where someone asks what comes first … The chicken or the egg … 

And we can talk on this all night … Night after night … Our whole lifetime … No George I am not off on another subject … Not at all.

Back to what I was saying  … Well before you shut me up George … 

I wished only to ask if you have ever thought about applying this chicken-egg idea to bible study and mental illness.  What comes first do you suppose?
