  • I've more than once had to admit my judgement was wrong.
    Good 3 minute video.

  • I got one:

    My friend was at a conceal/carry class, and the instructor was discussing various situations in which it is permissible to shoot someone in defense of another.

    The scenario was this:

    "You walk into a gas station, and see a man jump over the counter, and attack the clerk.  The man pulls out a gun and orders the clerk to the floor.  The clerk screams for help.  What do you do?"

    Most people in the class apparently responded that, in those circumstances, it would be permissible to shoot the attacker.

    But the detail the instructor deliberately left out changed everything: The "attacker" was a undercover police officer trying to make an arrest on the clerk.

    Anyone who would have shot in good faith would have shot a police officer.

    One student replied, "Well, the cop should have announced who he was."

    The instructor replied, "Those were not the circumstances, and whatever the cop could or should have done, you just killed the good guy, and regardless of what happens at trial, you will have to carry that around for the rest of your life."

    Another example of "not everything is as it might appear."
    Romans 5:20 "But where sin increased, grace abounded all the more."

    -I retract any and all statements I have made that are incongruent with the True Faith, and apologize for ever having made them-

  • Using that phrase s...-skinned of people from India is completely inappropriate, sinful, and unbecoming of Catholics.  Regardless of what we might think of their culture and their mores, we cannot think or speak of other souls who have been created in the image and likeness of God in that manner.
