There is nothing even remotely funny about this story.

From every angle it's a tragedy, personally, for his family, for the community.

On the other hand, he was a believer, if it was OK by God, it was OK by him, and his God wanted him dead.


Through some flaw in my character, this story just cracks me up. My condolences to his family.

Toad...there are nine ways to Sunday (no pun intended....well maybe) that one can sort out/rationalize this one. I won't even try though!

Cracks you up? Ha, ha, ha. Hilarious. Are we all to laugh uproariously when you fall up a ladder cleaning the leaves from your gutters and break your neck. Or when your wife falls down the basement stairs and breaks her back? This isn't a TV movie, friend. What the hell is wrong with YOU that you think this is funny?

The snide disclaimers don't work. Window dressing only. They fool no one.

I once read an interview with the Jewish chaplain at Georgetown University. He said that a problem with talking about religion is that most people have learned nothing about religion after age 12. So you end up with endless odd distortions--both among believers and nonbelievers. So you get stupid remarks (ha, ha, ha) like "He was a believer, if it was OK by God, it was OK by him, and his God wanted him dead. NOW." This is a perfect example of a distortion on several levels.

Just curious, what is it about this story that you find funny. Am I missing something?
