Did you ever wonder why there are evil or immoral people who always seem to be getting everything they want for themselves and there are moral people who never get any breaks? I think it has more to do with the way you were raised. Did your parents encourage you to be all you could be? Did they set a good example for you? Or maybe their parents just let them run wild. Did they set such a bad example that every decision they made is predicated on being the exact opposite of what their parents would do?
I think that upbringing has a distinctive influence on who we turn out to be. But, even if our childhood was bad, we have the choice to go one way or the other. It is sad that there seems to be people who do not have a moral compass. They really do not have a sense of right and wrong. It is almost like some brain cells are missing. They go through life thinking that the world owes them a living. They have their hand out all the time.
Somehow, they got it into their heads that they are the "Center of the Universe " and everyone should revolve around their world. They think that it is alright to have sex with anyone they want, wherever they want, with no regard to other people. They are trying to destroy the sanctity of marriage.
They think that drugs or alcohol are okay, even good, and believe that they should just do whatever feels good, with no regard to other people. They go through life blowing smoke on other people: cigarettes, marijuana, or now, electronic smoke. Just sliding through life taking and never giving.
I have seen smart people, who would put in hours or days into thinking of slick things to do to cheat others, the government, or even their own family. If they would put all that concentration into something positive, just imagine what a wonderful world this could be. Sometimes we think they are just lazy, but that is not the case. They spend so much time trying to circumvent the system, that they are continually holding out their hands for other people to financial support them all their lives.
Muslim countries seem to be condoning all kinds of atrocities. They want us to give up our freedoms and put ourselves back into the Middle Ages where women were hidden and abused, where only men ruled, where all were punished horribly for small transgressions. They offer no forgiveness, they undermine our values as Christians, Jews, etc.
The Koran, which has been rewritten hundreds of times to reflect what any influential Muslim says that Allah told them. Allah is a very vengeful god, which should not mean anything because there is no god but our God, Jehovah. Mohammed was not even a good Prophet. He has to ask his wife's advice before he did anything.
The Center of the Universe. (Isn't that how we felt when we were six?)
