The title of this post sounds trite, but I realize that some things that should be obvious are not. When they read the Bible, whether as part of a daily discipline or just as the fancy strikes them, most people pick it up looking for some sort of inspiration.

Once again, a lion is shot, and a vast section of America enters emotional meltdown. Most hunters when they wound an animal feel sick.
