    Jim M. here: Thanks, Ben. This is something that we all need to hear a lot more of in our daily interactions.

    Thank you for this. I’m going to add it as a help to a post I did yesterday on ‘anger management.’ +

    I only wonder if this individual has any knowledge or compassion for the human condition. There are some people who have been emotionally abused, sometines from an early age, whose every day is a trial. Some of these people are living in chronic emotional pain that is extremely bebilitation. They are also dealing with anger towatrd their parents that is often displaced daily in their lives. Yes, they do get angry at God and yes, they sometimes take His name in vain, but often in frustration that their pain is not relieved. Emotional pain such as this can often lead people to consider suicide.

    So when this individual speaks so black and white of anger towards God, I really doube his knowledge of the human condition. Anger in this state is much different than someone who deliberately in total free will acts out. This man places burdens on people that is impossible to carry. Perhaps, if he would ever walk this walk, his opinion would be somewhat tempered.

    Jim M. here: To Richard Thomas…I don’t believe the speaker would address the kind of people that you were talking about in the same way. If certain people suffer from emotional and mental problems, God would treat them with the mercy and compassion that they deserve. He is strong enough to know and understand misdirected anger from a person who is troubled. I think he was referring to stable people who have a reasonably good understanding of God’s Laws, and the workings of the Lord in their lives.

    Thanks Jim

    I firmly believe that the more “confessions” a priest hears, the better he becomes. It is one of the “good” side effects of this healing sacrament!!
