Where is compassion?

Politics is dirty business.  You know it.  I know it.  Anyone who is involved in it knows it.

Today, Hillary started feeling overheated at the 9/11 memorial.  Despite my total disagreement with her on the issues, especially immigration and health care, I wish her a quick recovery.

But one of my old friends... I don't know what's happened to him.  I mean, I find this political rants amusing at times, and powerful at times.  But today... He went off so "half-cocked" including what could have been classified a threat.  Seriously, what he was suggesting was NOT a laughing matter, and certainly couldn't have been construed as satire.

I put a note up on FACEBOOK, regarding the situation.  I only hope he takes it the way it is meant.  If not, there isn't much I can do.

My Reply read as follows.


L-----, despite our dislike of Hillary, she, as a human, deserves some compassion.
If she is sick, she deserves prayers NOT ridicule. And your statement about a "Double dose" is cause for major concern! This is NOT Christian behavior!
And that comment COULD lead to the Secret Service showing up at your door.

I disagree with her on practically everything. Where in the New Testament does it say "Badmouth your enemies"? Politics STILL needs to be tinged with compassion. It is getting dirty and I, for one, am disgusted with it.

My wife has been in the hospital. I call for prayers not vituperation! Let's see a little compassion. You don't have to agree with Hillary, but you can at least tone down the rhetoric. I don't like seeing anyone sick... regardless of friction or disagreements that are a part of politics, compassion is what makes us Spiritual beings.

When we stoke the furnace, we get the heat! READ THAT LAST LINE AGAIN: WHEN WE STOKE THE FURNACE,
WE GET THE HEAT. ::sigh:: I worry about the people of this world. There's too much hatred. We Need COMPASSION... not more hatred! I WISH YOU A SPEEDY RECOVERY, Ms. Clinton. If you're not healthy, you do yourself, your party, and your county a disservice.
