That, and their approach to helping the less fortunate with no voiced expectation of winning people over to their faith. I find modern missionary work as practiced by some churches (proselytizing, convertion) to be the antithesis of what I imagine Jesus was trying to achieve, which is what the OP is about: deeds and good works.
Globe, I have a friend who served in the IDF during the 1980s who is certifiable. Not sure if that happened before they gave him a gun, or after.
This should be an interesting thread. This past year we moved up into a community of "1%ers" (for Canada at least), and I was struck by how many of our neighbors attend church or synagogue regularly. I was raised and baptised an Anglican, but haven't set foot in a church, other than for friends' weddings, for more than 20 years. My spouse and I aren't married, and neither of our kids are baptised.However, this Christmas we decided to attend church as a family for the first...
That was actually a pretty good piece. Thanks.

M1 Carbine is still a good gun.
Not as a matter of course the way that prostate screening is pushed, no. But a friend's father was having headaches and mood changes, and was in having a CT within 2 months, which is pretty impressive for Canada you must admit.I don't think there are any particular obstacles to getting help with mental health issues in Canada either. We often fail at what happens after the diagnosis is made, though.
What's that, bitch? Speak up, I can't hear you.
I was going to posit that it's a New-World, frontier mentality kind of thing, where the only justice you can depend on is the one you dispense yourself. But Ataturk has never been shy about making controversial pronouncements, so I'm sure he'll be along shortly to expound.
Actually, another hypothesis: would reform to health care in the U.S. have a corollary effect on gun crime? If earlier screening and detection of, say, psychosis or brain tumors (two often-advanced causes of these kinds of shootings) was available to the general public, would there be less mass shootings? EDIT: to clarify that lack of insurance seems to be cited in studies on access to almost all kinds of healthcare, including cancer screening.
