Found the central thesis:

"Is what I am about to say or do going to leave the people affected by it feeling safe, loved and celebrated?"

This reflects the "comfort the afflicted, afflict the comfortable" principle I use when I'm picking a victim for my comedy. Not all comedy requires a victim, but much of it does. At least with the above principle I can victimize the enemies of safety, love and celebration.

Tell me what you think of this principle.

And God said: Stop killing my kids.

I'm a spiritual person. I believe I'm not supposed to hate anything that God made. I don't think that God would approve of me hating his kids. I sure don't want anyone to hate mine.

So how do I reconcile my attempt to not hate anyone with my willingness to kill enemies of the state? If I was a soldier, sailor, airman or marine, I don't think I would have to hate people to kill them.

I'm sure that God doesn't want me to kill his kids, but some of them are out of control and pose a threat to the rest of us. At some point, you have to let your kids make their own mistakes.
