Cranial Density

I read the comment sent to the blog last night, went to their website.

It's the usual, 'You don't live right' situation.

No names given for the author, but some hints. Anyone who uses 'SCOTUS' in their messages, usually has had training or works around the legal system. For those of you out there who don't know, SCOTUS is the abbreviation for Supreme Court of the United States.

Is our mystery guest, who has gone to plenty of websites and blogs to log their anonymous comments about the Jehovah's Witnesses, a lawyer in hiding? Methinks it's possible.

You know the line from Shakespeare's play, "King Henry VI , Part II" about lawyers?


The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers.

I don't agree with that sentiment. I know some good lawyers. I have also known some who should be in jail. What bothers me, most of them are not interested in settling things, they just want to drag problems out to increase their billing hours.

The ongoing rant from 'Anonymous' is that the Jehovah's Witnesses are letting people die, because they don't allow blood transfusions. They also don't respect confidentiality situations in work relations. If they find out that another Jehovah's Witness has 'sinned' and it's on the record where they work, they report it to the church. Which can lead to the 'sinner' getting booted out of the congregation and the church.

I don't understand the problem here. If they are willing to let themselves die and their kids also, wouldn't that reduce the number of them that this anonymous commentator is worried about? Anon complains on their site about the THOUSANDS of court cases that are brought because of this religion. So what?

There are HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of bogus lawsuits in this country. Who brings them? People who are able to find a lawyer who'll take the case and file the lawsuit.

What about the TENS OF THOUSANDS that die at the hands of 'skilled professionals' in our hospitals every year? This is documented and a much larger problem.

How about the tens of thousands that die on our roads, because of drugs, alcohol, driver error or mechanical malfunction (another driver error)?

What the anon commentator doesn't want to face is that life isn't perfect.

The question is, how thick is your skull?

'Alas, poor Yorick...'

His skull an empty shell

full of naught but air

no thought flits there.
