As Mr Wright and I watched TV recently, I started to think...stop laughing.
The program had a character that was terminally ill and was on her death bed in a great deal of pain. She wished she could end her life to be free of the pain but she was Catholic and knew that doing so would send her straight to hell. She asked her friend to do it for her since he was not Catholic.
Here is where my thoughts lead:
If she believed that she would be damned for committing murder or in this case suicide, why was it okay for someone else (a friend) to commit the crime just because he didn't believe? Wouldn't everyone be punished the same way, despite their believes? Does this mean if you don't believe you will be free from consequences? Do other people really believe this?
I got the "it's only TV" look from Mr Wright - but someone wrote this, someone thought about this - right?
