It is always fun, to write down of the number of Home Runs each player scores in the season. The most important Home Run I made, was in a trip to Europe, then I converted to Catholicism. It was a Home Run because of the life-change decisions I took. It wasn’t a matter of virtue, or me achieving goals in a devastating effort. It was just caused by luck. I was lucky going to Bosnia and Herzegovina, and in Medjugorje found the path I was looking for. That was a full house Home Run. The whole stadium stand up, my inner stadium… ha ha ha, at least in my imagination 🤩
One hundred fifty years ago, a woman named Myra Bradwell brought a Supreme Court case claiming a constitutional right to be admitted to the Illinois bar. She had passed the state’s bar exam with high honors, but the Illinois Supreme Court refused her application, saying that when the State Legislature gave the court the power to grant law licenses, “it was with not the slightest expectation that this privilege would be extended to women.”
Church has also, not a favoritism, but established a role for man as the family´s head. Dads should take relevant decisions such as where to live, how many children would compose the family, and so on. They should provide an income, preferably a stable one; and this duty alone, will take them 8/5 (8 hours per day, 5 days a week) on the average. I don’t think this imposed role for dads as heads have damaged our societies; on the contrary, families continue to succeed even in this pandemic times.
Fears have turned people against genetically modified food. But benefits are great, Kahn wrote, for the NY Times.
The difficulty is to predict the results of each genetical modification. Many years have to pass to be able to measure their consequences. Developing tests take time, depending on the kind of food. And of course, there have to be enough monetary outcome since the required investment is much.
Once grown, what if the GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) behave different than expected? 💡 This is similar as the creation: God made us and gave us freedom. We can take our own choices, whether good or bad, only God can tell. What if we make mistakes, maybe unfixable mistakes??? What if, being confused, we take decisions that later wish to change? Because of God’s love, he sent us his Son, actually Himself in Trinity’s Second Person. He is the one able to fix unrepairable mistakes. There is no impossible for Him, even when it seems the contrary, so keep the faith. I can talk and talk about this and my experiences in hospitals and surgeries, but let us return to GMOs.
There is an opposition, which is completely natural, to this movement. Also it is natural to have fears, because they prevent us from dangers. An intricate knot will result if we keep hiding and hiding fears under the armor, pretending they are not there, with the temporal benefit of not seeing them for a while.
There should be a level of maturity when dealing with this issue and its consequences. Each alteration being done should have a multilateral reason. For instance someone could produce an overwhelming colored fruit, one that sells better. But what if now requires a different weather, or if it is devoured by insects attracted to the new look. As I said above, consequences can be unpredictable. Like when they forced salt to be perfectly white, which seemed pure at that time; and now salt is listed under the 7 white food demons. White is an utopic color, did you know it is the mandatory color to play tennis at Wimbledon?
