My previous thread having been terminated, my next serious topic needs to be about God, as there was more I wanted to write but was derailed from returning yesterday (due to a medical emergency with my 90 year old stepfather). Princ's Belt said that it is an extension of hate to deny people the right to do what they want (or words to that effect - I stand to be corrected if I have misrepresented this due to inadequate recall). But does a parent tell their children "Don't play with fire/Don't run into the road ..... etc." out of hate, or love? It's a (seemingly) unfortunate fact of our existence that there are boundaries in place for our safety. Not only physical boundaries either. The child may yell and scream "But it isn't fair!!" (As I did when I saw my previous thread had been closed, lol!) Is that going to change the parents' mind? (As regards the fire and the road - I understand the reasons behind closing the thread. Admin parents thought best).
