RE: Watching a religious loved one endure cancer (or other life threatening disease)
Amyb, your comments about perceived fairness are spot on. My Christian BF says the Sam thing about the fairness deal. He says that some people have it so sucky in this,life that this can't be all there is and that he can't believe a loved one's death means we will not see them again. I thought death meant exactly that, never seeing the departed again, hence the grief in missing them. I said that wanting it to be so (god, afterlife, etc) doesn't make it so. He goes back too the fact that he just knows and you gotta have faith, so there it stays. We can discuss the matter civilly, and he knows where I stand.

Woof, you are correct. We can love people without having to agree with them on everything.
