Ethical problems are not mental problems. A greedy person for example is commiting a huge ethical error but they are not mentally ill. It is important not to give them any excuses for what are just bad morals/ethics. Cynics are just annoying/ petty and are at a low level of ethical behaviour.

When we base humour on non sequitor reasoning it falls a little flat. ie being cynical about those who are cynical. I wasn't being cynical, just judgemental as the discussion is asking for answers and judgements.ie answering a question.
I think it's difficult not to be cynical, for some people. They go through life watching the world slowly crumble and good people suffer. History repeats itself constantly and it's hard to see anything ever getting better. I tend to be pretty cynical about the outcome of things, but that's only because the pattern of misfortune tends to stick.

Mental Illness VS Demonic possessionIn Jesus day, he expelled many devils from possessed people. Do we today, confuse demonic possession for certain forms of mental illness? I believe there is a difference, but... what would you say is the difference? How does one know the difference?

Let's face facts people. The 2nd amendment was written for another time and another place. It has no place in today's world. It is causing mentally ill people to commit mass killings. The gun enthusiast who think they are going to protect themselves from government tyranny are...
