Nancy,

I'm almost always very upbeat, really.  Yesterday, for a fleeting
moment, the thought entered my mind, "Start, what if you knew
that there was absolutely no hope, that your efforts are of
absolutely zero hope, impact or positive value. What then?
[because at the moment, I correctly realized that this may be true]"

My answer came immediately - "I'd keep doing what I'm doing. 
I don't want the existence of a parasite; I don't want what that feels like. 
I don't want to be evil.  I don't want to live separated from the
Love within me as a brother for all of Humanity born and to be born.
Been there, done that.

I don't want a life of pleasure when I can have the Life of Joy
that comes from Dying for a better world, one with with less
suffering, and more Joy."

The Church taught me to be "Catholic." 
Jesus taught us to be a Brother to EVERYONE. 
How totally UnChristLike the "Church" is. 
TOTALLY.

"I LIKE your Christ. 
I do NOT like your Christians. 
They are soooo unlike your Christ."
