    Not in the case of my ancestress though. She wasn't out to help, just busy looking down at everyone else. Meanwhile, her son knocked up my great grandmother out of wedlock and then took off, encouraged by his mother who thought him too good for a fallen woman.

    Oh, I know - I was just responding to this: "Seems that the more vociferous someone is about moral values, the more likely it is that they're the last one who should be talking about it", which I perceived as a generalization. I'm just saying that there are some who could be riled up against something because they had a change of heart. Just a different perspective, is all. Both types of people populate our world.

    (Says the gal who simply doesn't like generalizations... :D )

    Sometimes though, generalizations fit whether we like the idea or not ;) Just look at all the politicians in the last 30 yrs who have tried to legislate morality, only to be found out that they were doing exactly the opposite themselves at the time, for an example. I'm very suspicious about someone telling me that something is bad for me and i shouldn't do it on TV over and over again, or on the radio, or in a newspaper......
