A chance to do a work of mercy

A chance to do a work of mercy June 19, 2012

Tony Nicklinson, a victim of ‘locked-in’ syndrome is being encouraged to choose life via Twitter.

    First comment currently shows the central problem:
    “If God loves Tony so much why has he made Tony suffer so terribly?”

    We’ve lost the value of suffering in our society to the point that people think Tony’s life is worthless, and they’ve convinced him of it too.

  • Those comments were…demoralizing. The sooner Jesus returns the better.
