    Imagine going on trial for a parking ticket....and facing life in prison for it...

    and the Judge in the case is a well-known mass murderer and war criminal...

    who has already said in the opening statements that your crime of a parking ticket is worse than anything he ever did, in fact, his crimes weren't even "crimes"?

    Would you consider that a "just" legal system?
    Thanks from Madeline

    Rors figured it out....but of course can't discuss it. (because he is terrified of examining his own beliefs)


    It is an analogy to the basis for Christianity.....that the Biblica God, who is (according to that book) a mass murderer

    judges us as "sinful", even for the most MINOR offenses (like not believing in Him)....and worthy of extreme punishment.

    Yet we are supposed to consider this dictatorial and hypocritical "judicial system" as not just believable....but deserving of our support.

    There are two completely different versions of Christianity, one is the hate filled hell fire and brimstone fundamentalist version, the other is the Episcopalian and other liberal Christian denominations version, me, I will stick with those guys and leave the board righties with the fundies.

    Is the judge responsible for my existence?

    Did he create the Earth?

    If so then yes, I would say that it is just.
