sigh.

It’s little things like these that make me realise how constitutionally unsuited to being a good Catholic I am.

I actually support the upcoming Euthanasia seminar even though I also fully support the Catholic church in that you shouldn’t choose euthanasia. I personally don’t think euthanasia is right.
I don’t know. I guess my theory just is that if God, the CREATOR, loves us enough to allow us to make mistakes on our own, who are we to stop our fellow human beings from making mistakes on their own by preventing people from choosing the wrong path? The fact is that non-Catholics (or whatever religions that are against euthanasia) want euthanasia. If they want to choose that way out, so be it. I don’t think religious people should force their views on the nonreligious via the law, particularly on issues where it’s a 50-50 split on public opinion. I’m not sure whether forcing someone to stay in a state of pain when he’s unwilling is really doing God’s will. Catholics/Muslims may be happy to do so because we think we’re obeying the edicts of God, but agnostics and atheists who aren’t concerned with the afterlife? Painless euthanasia seems much more human than driving these people to throw themselves off buildings because there’s no other way out. Worse still if there’s enough of your corpse left to flog. Shudders.

You see why I’m totally unsuited to be a good Catholic? Other people just think, no the Church says it’s wrong, it feels wrong and so the law shouldn’t sanction the wrong. Sometimes I wish God just made me one of those people so I wouldn’t feel like I’m fighting Him all the time.

Why do I even try?

    I feel the same way you did while I was looking through my biomed seminars. That’s exactly what I think too. I think that life, according to Christianity, is that it can never be snuffed out, no matter the quality of life it is, because we should endure the suffering that God gave to us. However, there are times when I feel that maybe, their suffering is too much to endure – does it necessarily lead to demeaning life in any way?

    Ah, such are the mysteries of life that I think I will only understand when I meet God. (hopefully!) Muahaha.

    Jia you babe!
