If there's something I hate worse than whining liberals, it's "compassionate conservatives". Here's a thought to keep in mind next time somebody comes up wanting to feel your pain: Hands off, you sick pervert!
Or as a far greater philosopher than I put it in regards to Christianity:
Christianity is called the religion of pity. - Pity stands in antithesis to the tonic emotions which enhance the energy of the feeling of life: it has a depressive effect. One loses force when one pities. The loss of force which life has already sustained through suffering is increased and multiplied even further by pity.
The Christian concept of God - God as God of the sick, God as spider, God as spirit - is one of the most corrupt conceptions of God arrived at on earth: perhaps it even represents the low-water mark in the descending development of the God type. God degenerated to the contradiction of life, instead of being its transfiguration and eternal Yes! In God a declaration of hostility towards life, nature, the will to life!
