A quick plug to begin if I may. The Guardian has released a free app on Android giving free access to the paper every day. Lovely.
But it does make me think a bit more than usual, so apologies in advance if the blog goes through a brief season of commenting on Guardian articles.
As a starter for ten, it pleased me to read this one where someone is actually disagreeing with assisted dying being allowed. It really annoyed me a couple of weeks ago when the media reported on that guy who has been paralysed and wants to die so is asking for the law to be changed. It didn’t annoy me that he wants to die, what annoyed me was the way that the media reported on it. Oh no, this guy used to be normal, but then he had an accident and now his life isn’t worth living any more – how cruel is the Government for not allowing his wife to kill him…there are two sides to this story, and the other side didn’t seem to be reported on.
Not enjoying life and wanting to die has two solutions: (1) commit suicide, or (2) receive the supernatural ability to be satisfied regardless of how enjoyable life is (Philippians 4:10-12). Thank you, Daniel Poulter, for letting us know from an informed position that helping people die is not just an
easy way out.
