Reactionary people like the ones in the quoted article are the ones that cause our civil liberties to erode. While I send my deepest sympathies to the families of those affected, I think this knee jerk reaction smacks of opportunism. It is just a way to make a quick buck off of a tragedy. This type of madness needs to stop. Before long, there will be police escorting everyone to the toilet! I do not know if the people bringing the lawsuit are Christians or not, but we are advised to not take legal actions against one another. Here is a good article on this subject: www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2001/august6/27.66.html And here are a couple verses on what the Bible has to say:
Romans 12: 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.
1 Corinthians 6: 1 When one of you has a grievance against another, does he dare go to law before the unrighteous instead of the saints? 2 Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you incompetent to try trivial cases? 3 Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life! 4 So if you have such cases, why do you lay them before those who have no standing in the church? 5 I say this to your shame. Can it be that there is no one among you wise enough to settle a dispute between the brothers, 6 but brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers? 7 To have lawsuits at all with one another is already a defeat for you. Why not rather suffer wrong? Why not rather be defrauded? 8 But you yourselves wrong and defraud – even your own brothers!
How do you feel about the situation?
- One of the victims in the James Holmes mass murder spree has lawyered up and plans to file a lawsuit … because he feels the theater dropped the ball in a very fatal way.
