    “That means she committed murder on herself.”

    Hahaha.

    I dare you to find a respectable dictionary that lists suicide as “self murder”.

    As for your “God’s plan” idea, I think JRook summed it up pretty nicely. It’s my understanding that even if God has a plan, human will can supercede it. If human will (aka free will) doesn’t trump God’s will, then all the horrible acts carried out since the beginning of time (by humans) were effectively condoned by God.

    I think of 2 Peter 3:9 in this instance. “It is God’s desire that none shall perish (refuse to repent and be sent to hell)” (paraphrased). So either that means God’s will trumps the desire of those who want to perish, or that the will of those who want to perish will trump God’s will, right?

    “There is no ‘dignity’ in suicide.”

    I disagree. Though it doesn’t really matter, because most people who commit suicide don’t care about your perception of dignity.

    Also, I’d say that choosing to kill yourself when you have a terminal illness is more dignified than people who live a full life on government welfare, or as a depraved criminal, etc.

    “She will now be the poster child for a portion of our country that believes ‘suicide’ is acceptable.”

    Why shouldn’t suicide be considered acceptable? Suicide is just a choice. It might be considered a bad one by outsiders, but you don’t know what was going on in that person’s life, or in their mind.

    “I once believed that it took a lot of courage to commit suicide but having seen several friends and family members make that horrible decision, I now believe it takes even greater courage to fight on, to stand in the face of hardship and say ‘I surrender not’, to stare down death and know the glory that waits on the other side.”

    I’d say that either choice would take courage. People who kill themselves usually lack a sense of worth, either in themselves or in the world around them. It’s not as if people who kill themselves just flip a switch one day and say “Hey, you know what… I’m sick of living and I want to hurt my family and friends!” before killing themselves. There’s usually a reason behind suicide, and it’s not always repairable.

    “Everyone – EVERYONE – interprets the bible in their own unique way so…”

    People might have different interpretations of the Bible, but that doesn’t mean that everyone’s interpretations are equally valid.

    If the Bible says ‘Jesus was a male’ and someone interprets that as ‘Jesus was a female’, then it’s evident that their interpretation is wrong.

    “Why not an emoticons version?”

    They can make this version if they want, but I can’t see many people using it… especially when Matthew 7:15 translates as:
    ‘Red x, hippy with a halo and jaundice, ram, deer/fox hybrid facing left’.

    How do you suppose a dead body is going to clean up after itself?

    “most of them think a turd can be picked up from the clean end.”

    Haha, it wouldn’t surprise me if that was actually true.

    @just1conservative

    I didn’t say that killing yourself is heroic; just that it takes courage if you’re sane.

    As for those who choose to live in spite of a looming painful death, I think that’s good for them, but I don’t judge or object to those who want to call it quits.

    @paulsfam4

    Why does it matter that she peacefully commited suicide, instead of slowly, painfully dying to cancer? How do you know that it wasn’t God’s plan for her to kill herself? Conversely, how do you know that it was God’s plan for her to die from cancer?

    @Richardoky

    “Best analogy I have heard. No one condemned them for jumping when facing certain death from fire. Why should she be treated any different.”

    Many people (particularly Christians) would have you believe that God gives, destines, and takes away a person’s life… something that I don’t believe to be true (at least the destiny/taking part).

    Do these people think that God destined for billions of people to be murdered, or die from accidental deaths? How about children who are born with terminal illnesses?

    I think that people who condemn suicide as a cowardly act are the true cowards. Unless you were in a really bad place emotionally/mentally, it would take a lot of courage to end your own life.

    “It’s just not important to you because you don’t understand how serious that is in Germany East and West, and how serious the genocidal extermination of an entire people is to those that were almost annihilated.”

    The Jews were not “almost annihilated”. Even if you believe in the 6 million figure, the Jewish population would still have been in the millions.

    Complaining about some random German teenager saying “Sieg Heil!” just shows how pathetic these holocaust milkers really are.

    Unless he named someone in a specific and credible threat, then I fail to see what the problem is. Besides, it seems as though this picture was taken/posted at home, so it shouldn’t be any of the school’s business.

    You know there’s something called ‘Adblock Plus’ for Firefox, right? I also have NoScript, which I use to block all scripts except sail-horizon.com and theblaze.com, but I wouldn’t recommend NoScript for casual internet users.

    “Libs_Stink is spot on. It’s not called the greatest generation for nothing. Your post would be written in German if not for them.”

    What’s wrong with German?

    Besides, the man in this story isn’t from ‘the greatest generation’, he’s a baby boomer. Baby boomers (particularly in America) were arguably the most decadent and selfish generation the world has ever seen, so please spare us from your ‘holier-than-thou’ BS.

    “This is silly and useless as a measure of anything of value.”

    I would agree for the most part, but I do think (generally speaking) that there is a correlation between the type of music someone listens to and their mindset. If someone is constantly listening to music that makes references to women being pieces of meat, or ‘whitey’ being evil, then they may just start to believe that.

    Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that if you listen to rap that you will start thinking or acting like a thug, but I believe there certainly is a link between music and mindset for many people.

    Unfortunately, music is a great way to spread propaganda, because people often associate positive feelings with the music they like, and may attempt to rationalise the lyrics or overall message of the song, simply because “it sounds good”.

    @rvick

    Yeah, that is the biggest problem with multiculturalism… mostly due to the fact that it’s inherent.

    If there’s a dominant culture in a multicultural environment, then the dominant culture is generally a target for ridicule/harassment, while the less dominant cultures are praised and aided by social justice warriors or racial/cultural sympathisers. In extreme cases, the less dominant cultures are given impunity for certain types of behaviour, either due to ‘guilt’ on the part of the dominant culture, or due to the fear that if the dominant culture offends/persecutes (even if this is just the perception of the so-called victims) the less dominant ones, that they will lash out with violence.

    It gets to a point where the dominant culture ends up having to constantly bend over backwards just to placate the less dominant cultures, and that just isn’t feasible in the long term.

    I’ll bet she’s upset at “Chinatown” because (unlike her people) Asians are able to maintain their own historic culture while at the same time being decent, successful Americans. Besides, I have a lot more respect for East Asian culture than I do for African/African-American culture.

    With that being said, she’s entitled to her opinion, but I think it’s awfully ironic that during a nonsensical rant, filled with racial stereotypes and profanity, an African-American is telling Asian-Americans how they should behave if they want to be considered Americans.

    “My prediction is that it will be used to deliver a nuke over Israel in the near future.”

    How about an attack on the US? All they would have to do to get into US airspace would be to take off from a West African country and say that they’re carrying an ebola patient.
