VIII-We will not steal.

We made this promise-we would not take anything that was not rightly ours. In making the promise, we also agreed that we would not justify stealing by saying something we'd taken was rightly ours if in truth it was not.

Through the millennia I have watched some horrifying thefts occur under the guise of convoluted justifications that reminded me of nothing less than an obscene playing out of The Emperors New Clothes.

And never more than now.

Regretfully I've had to update my blog to comment moderation to prevent spamming. LOL, if only the fools knew my blog is seen by a very small and select group-it might help them understand the waste of time it is to spam my blog! Oh well, it's not as though spammers are very bright, after all.
