Success is one thing, but they still need to fucking die. It's separate.
Good thing because everyone dies eventually. Most likely painfully, so violent revenge fantasies are pointless and are just going to result in a terribly bad decision being made. True, it would be great if they just coincidentally died horribly and painfully, but encouraging murder isn't a good idea especially in a situation where it sounds like a good idea. My sympathy goes out to you, Cmega. I hope you can find someone to help.
Especially that encouraging murder just steeps in violent thoughts. Thoughts which skew the perception :/ if reinforced and without any counter-backing, anyway.
Yeah, understandable anger...but it isn't good in this position to just dwell on anger. The basis on that is: They acted out of a thought or belief that they found...reasonable >_> (damn me if its the take on Proverbs 13:24 though, given their background, as in truth the meaning of this is pretty much like basic psychology...observational psychology, anyway. Physical violence at that level is not. ...Not! <_< It's more of a symbolic background pertaining to beating away thoughts which would result in a badly developed person. Not literally. Pertaining to 'sparing the rod')

Though, Cmega, someone in the least should know of what's happening to you. Whatever the connections anyone else has--do those relatives who're on good terms with them even know what they're doing to you?
Someone should know of it. As far as I can see, we can at least give advice here--this advice may be wrong in context at times, but what's important is that someone there should know of such acts. :s

I doubt that its an 'everyone doesn't care and damn I'm abandoned' situation. Someone there must at least care.
Something must be done. If nothing will be done--there will be nothing in return.

I'm thinking that taking a picture of the physical wounds as proof for posterity would be a good idea there.

Proverbs 13:24. Oh yeah.

If there's one thing I'm sick of, it's so-called Christians justifying their morally reprehensible and blatantly evil actions with Bible verses taken out of context.
Stop giving my religion such a bad name, dammit.

Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

It's basically saying that you should punish your children when they do things that are not okay, as opposed to letting them run amok and do whatever they like. It's generally accepted that using an actual rod to do so is unnecessary :P.

Feel free to pm me if you want to talk about why the "good book" isn't so good. Hopefully, we can keep the flamewars under control. For those that have one handy, or feel like looking it up online, just look up Exodus 21:20-21 and Deuteronomy. Essentially the whole book is full of laws concerning behavior, mist of which are either heinous or bizarre, but 21:10-14 is a prime example of a horrendous war crime being laid down as law. That's where my side of the debate begins.

"Whoever spares the rod hates their children, but the one who loves their children is careful to discipline them."

MZ: I think I've discussed the heinous/bizarre laws of the Old Testament with you at some point? Maybe it was someone else. I can't remember.

Edit: Derp, Blitz was talking about the other verses.

C'mon vec, there's gotta' be a couple that aren't so bad, right? Right? One or two?

... yeah, maybe not. Generally if you're an actually decent human being you're not going to maintain a rich status and/or lifestyle because you'll kinda' be using the money to actually do nice things for people, instead of doing rich-y stuff. Though I'm sure there's at least one or two rich folks out there that live like normal people and actually steadily invest in good, or at least nominally beneficial, works. Somewhere. Maybe there's several and they just never make the news, I'unno.

There are many that don't make the news, yeah :s
But then there are many more that hog the news that makes it so little. >_<
