Actually, in the original Hebrew, the first person plural is used, but it was often used in ancient Hebrew to indicate a deliberativeness (is that a word?) about the statement.

I asked about heretics, not witches.

So it's okay to burn witches, just not heretics? (BTW, witches were lumped in with heretics, and others who could be burned.)

Anyway, my point stands. Much good and bad in the Old Testament, and Christians, having roots in the OT, were inspired by both. Jews, Christians, Muslims, all have "come short of the glory of God," so no one religion can really engage in finger-pointing.

I found her stated reason for giving up observance disingenuous.It's as if a parent would say, "I'm going to stop all the obligations, rituals and observances related to being a parent because 'there's no warmth coming back'".Such a person misunderstands whatparenting is all about and is entirely self centered ( and probably manipulative and controlling as well). It's also possible that "there's no warmth coming back" because she's , well, just not very likable; people like that seldom are.

Excuse me, but you should have your facts straight before
you post something.

Dr. Laura has a Ph.D. in Physiology from Columbia University
College of Physicans and Surgeons (medical school) so has earned the right to call herself "Dr". I was a Ph.D. student there at the same time so I know this for a fact.

She subsequently earned a license to practice clinical psychology (marriage and family counceling) in CA.

You may not like or agree with Dr. Laura, but please use factual arguments not hear-say and rumors. Otherwise, your comments are meaningless.

Thank you!

Guess I heard wrong.

I actually agree with most of what Dr. Laura has to say, I just find her delivery belligerent and annoying. I don't like the way she trashes people that come asking her for help.
