I have 4 things to disclose: 1. My upbringing is Strict Catholic; 2. I am Catholic 3; I was not spank as a child; 4. I have not been able to fully watch the movie “The exorcist;” 5. And I don’t want to (I guess I had 5 things to disclose). 🙂
Pro Life? What is that is what I asked as someone took my picture and screamed at me for even asking that question? Her behavior towards me when I opened my mouth can be best described as a scene from the Exorcist, when Linda Blair first sticks out her tongue as the person I asked that question proceeded to give me an ear full except the answer to my question, and may I say one thing about that? May I have my ear back and my picture since it was intentionally taken without my consent?
I dare say that my early childhood upbringing was Catholic and stricter than most individuals in the Vatican and I will leave it at that because this is a blog post not a confession. “)
I am not above error. I curse like a sailor when emotionally challenged, chew gum at the library (with my mouth closed) and…. I also sneak my coffee into the library and it has been 1 year since my last confession.
My first day at public school was traumatic and that is when my mother first threatened me with corporal punishment (spanking) for cursing at a kid in school. She did not agree with my answer to what I was being accused of. When she went to look for an object to strike my flesh, I got on my knees and started to sing the Lord’s prayer. She who sings to the heavens- prays twice. What did I tell ya- more than the Vatican folks I dare say? “)
When she found a soft chancla (shoe), she said “praying is not going to save you from this spanking!” My response was quick and to the point unlike this post. I interrupted my singing and said, “I am not praying for me. I am praying for you.” There was no spanking that day or any subsequent day after that.
What about the mentally ill? Some are committing suicide. What about those who have a terminal illness and want to end their life? What about those who want a death with dignity like in a situation of Active or Passive Euthanasia. Is that not Pro Life?
Pro Life is Pro Life in all the issues through in the continuum. Anything less than that is against Pro Choice. No. Nothing wrong with that. Now, who wants to volunteer at a suicide prevention hot line? Who wants to adopt a child in the US (without the high cost of adoption)? Who wants to volunteer to care for someone who is terminally ill that suffers with great pain? Now, who wants to hold a sign and take pictures?
Please say what you mean.
