anna waldherr’s ‘restraint.’

*******

Could not get this ‘Reblogged,’ even after going to Firefox. Doing it by main force, with the following words, shared also on Facebook.

I find this, – particularly referring to the graphic in Anna’s post, – Absolutely Inhuman. In India, they treat the ‘Real’ criminals with TLC (Tender Loving Care),

The man in white is one ‘Dara Singh,’ killer of Pastor Staines AND his family.

and Badly beat up those whom We would call The Innocent.

Above, beaten By the police, Thank You.

Abroad, I have not seen photographs of Carlos, the Drug lord and Mass killer, being treated this way.

My Blogging friend Anna, who is a Lawyer, keeps raising these issues.

These can be stopped Only if a Million voices rise against these.Simpler would be for Religious leaders, like the Pope, the Cardinals, Bishops, the Dalai Lama to speak up. …The Jesuit authorities in India spoke up for Fr. Stan; …for their Own.

Does it not make Your heart ache to see this, as it does mine?

Buddhist ‘Monks’ Lead Violence!

The Buddha would be Horrified. Buddhist (so called) monks in lanka had already been at the forefront of Violence against Tamils.┬áNow their next target, it would seem, are Muslims. Whether the lankan locals want to achieve their ends ‘using’ these monks can be debated. But even if the locals give the call, ‘Real’ Monks could have refused, and changed the ‘course’.

Here is a recent Carnage, Instigated, Encouraged and Led by them, AND a Cool monk in the midst of all that.

The dalai lama, instead of Whispering Sweet Nothings, should make out Strong statements against such happenings.

As Should the pope in situations where catholics have been/are at fault. As should any religious leader with regard to his following.

*******

A Large section of the Martial Arts, from Jiu-jitsu to Karate, and all their sisters and brothers, were developed by our (Old) Buddhist Monks, mainly to protect themselves, for Self Defence. Whereas, at least for the last 30 years or so, it can and will be seen that these (modern) so-called monks seem to have given up all ideas of ‘Shanti!’ For them it seems to be: ‘long live violence.’ But We cannot and Should not blame only the Buddhists for Violence like this.

The CEO, and Passion!

Once, the Bored Car Company decided to change its CEO. After a Lot of Thought and all that, they chose Mr. Thebest. Now this person had come up from the ‘Ranks’ due to his hard work. And he still liked to work with his Own hands. He was Not Ashamed of doing the Smallest bits of work, either. Everybody clapped their hands, were full of awe of him, and called him Very Good.

If there was Any problem, it was that he did very little of CEO kind of things. But people did not mind that.

By the Way, I am NOT referring to Arvind Kejriwal. THIS man refused to dance to Other’s tunes, or rules laid down by Others, etc. He had set out the Change Stupid laws, and He proceeded with that.

Whereas in the case of Our CEO, this was not the case. Even he thought that the ‘laws’ of the company were Good.

But the company gave him the boot after less than a week. Neither Mr. Thebest, NOR the people, could understand Why!

We have Many of these Thebests, as CEO’s, or ceo’s, in posts big or small, but Responsible posts, nevertheless. One of the Biggest, as far as I know, did not put the garbage out. But he went to pay his hotel bills. Let him pay that. But HOW MUCH of Speaking did he do? About 5 cents worth.

Being a catholic, I shall speak of my church. It is perhaps the biggest as far as numbers are concerned, VERRRRY old, and so, WELLL Organized, and has Enough money. I have been to enough Check-ups, but no doctor told me that I am deaf. But I do not hear my Leader speak. If he is ‘mewing’ somewhere like a mouse, I am not satisfied.

They tell us, it is not sufficient to publish Your blog, and that We should Share it on Facebook and Twitter, etc. The church should have organized 24×7 Television Channels, the Same in Radio Stations, Newspapers and Periodicals in the Maximum number of languages, Spreading the Message of Love and Human Brotherhood.

When the nazi thing happened, the man had been Silent. Mewing, as I said, is not allowed. When Christian Nations and Catholic ones fought, (As in Ireland), had there been any Thunder? Christian Nations had invaded others and had practiced Cruelty. I remember Bosnia. Ukraine burns, and vatican sleeps.

To give You some recent examples, One bishop serves the Poor soup, and does that even personally, but does Very little Writing, except for Recipes! One Priest in Facebook kept ‘Poking’ me for a whole 7 months. We should appreciate this kind of zeal, of course.

One Young priest likes Traveling, and posts pictures from the places he has been fortunate enough to visit. I suppose he is helping out those who have not even seen pictures of interesting places. Haha. And Most priests and pastors seem to think that a ‘social’ site like Facebook means posting pictures of themselves, or, at the most, of various churches.

The Dalai Lama is more in the News, is Heard, because He Speaks. Indian ‘holy men’ speak, reach out, have TV channels and programmes. A lot of Other Christian Brethren do this. But from the catholic side, I have heard ‘of’ the vatican radio, …but who listens to radios now?

In this day and age, the Idea of the Sacred Heart, Burning with Love for Us, might seem quite Outdated. But if Art is supposed to communicate, pictures of this kind should do so. After all, it represents Passionate Love.

It is Ok to have Love for something. But it is Better to Love Passionately. One HAS to Love like that. Would Sex without passion satisfy us?

Passionate Love for a priest, bishop and the pope would mean Empathizing with the People of God. Feeling their Pain in his ‘Stomach.’ And Speaking Out! A catholic priest gets a minimum of 7 years of scholastic training in the seminary.

Oh to find some who would be Ready to put their Necks on the Block, who would Dare to Speak out! Bishop Romero did that, and paid for it with his life. Is this what deters our present day clergy?
