With all that is going on at the moment I have been this morning trying to square the circle concerning righteous anger and this does appear to be the case above according to Christian doctrine. Though I am not a Christian I would say that Christianity is most certainly the root of my teachings. At a young age I attended Sunday school and was known affectionately by others as and identified as a bible basher.
a person who expounds or follows the teachings of the Bible in an aggressively evangelical way.)
Then at Secondary school during my A Levels I went on to study Christian Theology. My grades were very poor put I did pass the course. At that time I had lost faith in the concept of Jesus Christ as my personal saviour and so had a very sceptical view of Christian Perspectives and motives. I appreciated Christianities Theological Righteousness, but had no concept of a living breathing Jesus in my heart or in the world or accepting him as my own personal saviour.
One of many things that pushes me away from all mainstream religions is that they all claim to offer you a pass to heaven and God if you do exactly what they say, teach and preach and that there’s is the only true God.
I know many good people that have passed and if they have gone to your hell to me hell can’t be as hellish as you claim it to be. According to each religion I am sure I would be able to point out millions of souls over the millennia that will never get a chance to go to your heaven and millions of souls that can obey your rules and go to your heaven that might in fact ultimately be very bad people.
So this concept of defining who does and does not go to heaven or hell, does generate within me a certain Righteous indignation.
a person who seeks by contemplation and self-surrender to obtain unity with or absorption into the Deity or the absolute, or who believes in the spiritual apprehension of truths that are beyond the intellect.
“the poetry of the 16th-century Spanish mystic, St John of the Cross”
another term for mystical.
Middle English (in the sense ‘mystical meaning’): from Old French mystique, or via Latin from Greek mustikos, from mustēs ‘initiated person’ from muein ‘close the eyes or lips’, also ‘initiate’. The current sense of the noun dates from the late 17th century.

So yesterday was a weird one, some awesome news in that I have a start date for a new job which I am so pleased about. I still have my old job and had my job interview for the new one just before lockdown kicked in. It’s all been on hold with Covin-19 taking hold.
So In order to treat myself, celebrate and kick back and watch a Blu-Ray I thought I would get a chicken burger, fries and a sprite. Lush, lush, lush.
So food is on its way driver can’t find me home and I go out to meet said driver and try and direct him to my flat with no success.
But that first meal was not to be. The driver did not find my address, cancelled my meal and buggered off. Gee thanks Drive.
Well next thing that happens is I now had time to deal with the homeless man that had decide to crash out outside the front of my flat complex. This was not a pleasure, honour or problem that I wished to address.
I went up to the bloke asked if he was ok, at this time he was leaning against a wall with his eyes shut and sitting in the hot sun. I lost count of how many people that had already walked past him blanking him like he might have been asking for change which they were not going to give him.
Lots more happened and I don’t have the heart to write it down here but to cut a long story short, I gave him some water in a plastic milk bottle which he took on his way with himself.
I got my meal in the end from Uber Eats and was told it would be free but still got charged for it. I might chase my money back on that today will have to see how I go. They might have cancelled the charge I am not sure yet.
My celebrations ended up being having a bath, watching part of the movie and falling asleep and trying not to sound to pissed off when explaining what the hell happened to my parents on the phone.
I was angry not with the homeless man but for want of a better description God. I thought way give me this sh*t show to me to deal with now. Why not give a guy a break for a change and let someone else act like the village idiot for a change?
Oh well another day another dollar.
If you are reading this I hope you are well and have a good day.

Hitler was born to a practicing Catholic mother, and was baptized in the Roman Catholic Church. In 1904, he was confirmed at the Roman Catholic Cathedral in Linz, Austria, where the family lived. According to John Willard Toland, witnesses indicate that Hitler’s confirmation sponsor had to “drag the words out of him … almost as though the whole confirmation was repugnant to him”. Rissmann notes that, according to several witnesses who lived with Hitler in a men’s home in Vienna, he never again attended Mass or received the sacraments after leaving home at 18 years old.
In his book Mein Kampf and in public speeches prior to and in the early years of his rule, Hitler expressed himself as a Christian. Hitler and the Nazi party promoted “Positive Christianity“, a movement which rejected most traditional Christian doctrines such as the divinity of Jesus, as well as Jewish elements such as the Old Testament. In one widely quoted remark, he described Jesus as an “Aryan fighter” who struggled against “the power and pretensions of the corrupt Pharisees” and Jewish materialism. In his private diaries, Goebbels wrote in April 1941 that though Hitler was “a fierce opponent” of the Vatican and Christianity, “he forbids me to leave the church. For tactical reasons.”
Hate begets hate; violence begets violence; toughness begets a greater toughness. We must meet the forces of hate with the power of love… Our aim must never be to defeat or humiliate the white man, but to win his friendship and understanding.
What does Lady Liberty represent? The Statue of Liberty stands in Upper New York Bay, a universal symbol of freedom. Originally conceived as an emblem of the friendship between the people of France and the U.S. and a sign of their mutual desire for liberty, over the years the Statue has become much more.
The statue is a figure of Libertas, a robed Roman liberty goddess. She holds a torch above her head with her right hand, and in her left hand carries a tabula ansata inscribed JULY IV MDCCLXXVI (July 4, 1776 in Roman numerals), the date of the U.S. Declaration of Independence. A broken shackle and chain lie at her feet as she walks forward, commemorating the recent national abolition of slavery. After its dedication, the statue became an icon of freedom and of the United States, seen as a symbol of welcome to immigrants arriving by sea.

Ich bin ein Berliner
“Ich bin ein Berliner“ (German pronunciation: [ˈʔɪç ˈbɪn ʔaɪn bɛɐ̯ˈliːnɐ], “I am a Berliner“) is a speech by United States PresidentJohn F. Kennedy given on June 26, 1963, in West Berlin. It is widely regarded as the best-known speech of the Cold War and the most famous anti-communist speech. Kennedy aimed to underline the support of the United States for West Germany 22 months after Soviet-occupied East Germany erected the Berlin Wall to prevent mass emigration to the West. The message was aimed as much at the Soviets as it was at Berliners and was a clear statement of U.S. policy in the wake of the construction of the Berlin Wall. Another phrase in the speech was also spoken in German, “Lasst sie nach Berlin kommen” (“Let them come to Berlin”), addressed at those who claimed “we can work with the Communists”, a remark at which Nikita Khrushchev scoffed only days later.
The speech is considered one of Kennedy’s best, both a notable moment of the Cold War and a high point of the New Frontier. It was a great morale boost for West Berliners, who lived in an enclave deep inside East Germany and feared a possible East German occupation. Speaking from a platform erected on the steps of Rathaus Schöneberg for an audience of 120,000, Kennedy said,
Universal suffrage (also called universal franchise, general suffrage, and common suffrage of the common man) gives the right to vote to all adult citizens, regardless of wealth, income, gender, social status, race, ethnicity, or any other restriction, subject only to relatively minor exceptions. In its original 19th-century usage by reformers in Britain, universal suffrage was understood to mean only universal manhood suffrage; the vote was extended to women later, during the women’s suffrage movement.
There are variations among countries in terms of specifics of the right to vote; the minimum age is usually between 18 and 25 years (see age of majority) and “the insane, certain classes of convicted criminals, and those punished for certain electoral offenses” sometimes lack the right to vote.
In the first modern democracies, governments restricted the vote to those with property and wealth, which almost always meant a minority of the male population. In some jurisdictions, other restrictions existed, such as requiring voters to practice a given religion. In all modern democracies, the number of people who could vote has increased progressively with time. The 19th century saw many movements advocating “universal [male] suffrage”, most notably in Europe, Great Britain and North America.
