I was never a fan of moral theology. Bored me to death. And as a Five, I'd rather be Right than Good. Not to say I lack a sense of right and wrong, but I would never promote it as one of my strong points...or interests.
My conservative ranting on here comes not from moral outrage as much as from a desire for survival.
Anyway, a shrink whom I normally like to read because he is a guy, and a kind of a libertarian, and hence quite unusual among the female-dominated liberal-to-the-core mental health profession, posted a link to a friend who had "the most thoughtful" response to Whitney Houston's death. In a word, we should not judge, because anyone can be caught in addiction.
Yikes. How thoughtful.
Well, here's a thought. Congressman Wiener gets caught with his pants down on the net, engaging in very private vice of the most ordinary kind. His career and life are over, to the tune and drumbeat of universal condemnation, contempt and opprobrium. Ms. Houston, publicly and over years, engages in lavishly expensive self-destruction of the most egregiously lurid kind, --validating stereotypes not only of divas, but of Blacks--and when she dies, NJ's flags fly at half mast for her.
Am I missing something?
