    And a punishment from God for her anger.

    Well, then, she should just wait and die, right? After all, that would seem do be what God would deem a just punishment, by your “logic”.

    Keith Kunz: of the four women friends of mine who have died of breast cancer over the last fifteen years, none of them were particularly angry. One, in fact, was one of the more peaceful people I’ve ever known. Your “logic” is just as suspect as Josh Lyons, if not more so.

    I can hardly believe there are still people in the world who still believe rhino horn is an aphrodisiac, bear gall cures disease, and God uses cancer as a punishment – all are are ludicrous, illogical, mean-spirited, ignorant and/or self-serving – grow up! If one of your wives/sisters/daughters/nieces gets breast cancer are you going to point the finger at her like a member of the Inquisition and say she had it coming? Idiots!

    Ouch. Jarring shift of perspective.

    Lesson:
    Learn to know what is important.
    And know the difference.

    Agree with all but the two first posters. But would like to add that men too are susceptible to breast cancer though it is a much smaller population.

    Thanks, Veteran, for pointing out the lesson to those who chose not to see it…. “learn to know the difference.”

    No. She was too eager to be angry about little things then gets hit be a big one. Knocks her for a loop.

    -

    That is really dippy. Self serving hypnotism humans can do so well. It is called cancer not created by mystical mumbo jumbo.

    I studied Zen philosophy along time ago and learned these things.
    The purpose of life is to become enlightened. You cannot be enlightened if you only see that which you wish to see.
    You cannot be enlightened if you judge everything to your standards.
    You cannot be enlightened if you close your mind.
    You cannot be enlightened till you discover your full self.
    You cannot be enlightened until you accept all things for what they are and know the difference.
    Just some teachings from an old Zen master circa 1967.
    My dad felt meditation would even me out as I was a bit of an enraged teen.
    Either that or psychotropic drugs to calm me down.
    Thank you, and peace to you also. Live well.

    You first two posters can just leave. I’m a tolerant guy but I can’t be expected to tolerate intolerance.

    My mother had breast cancer twice. She was probably the gentlest woman around.
