logarithmic.scale.toppled.down.
and.the.division.continues.
the.little.pieces.growing.smaller.
dissention.among.the.ranks.

Atheists.and.agnostics.snicker.
laughing.behind.hands.and.out.in.the.open.
the.headlines.shout."i.told.you.so!"

All I can say is whoa!!! OK that isn't all I can say. Lisa that is amazing! You've hit the nail squarely on the head. Now let's be the ones who help the amputated back to the body and protect them from the ugly, angry, judgmental, accusers.

My prayers are with the one who inspired this. I've seen too many of these people both the wounded and the wounding.
