I said nothing about less evolved races. As to my paraphrased quotes of
Bailey, please re-read them. I refered to sex *solely* for the purpose of

Since you raised the attitude of looking on others as souless ...

Countless women have been the victims of men who used them only for their own
gratification and who then left after their bodies had fulfilled their
usefulness. Under such situations, there is no permanence, no committment, no
treatment of the other as a soul.

Harass away!

We have to draw the distinction between acceptance of the person versus
his/her behavior. Morals (thou shalt not kill ... etc) are not bad -
only a rigid interpretation of them.

I can accept the rejects of society, the orphans, the bastards, the incest
victims, the homosexuals, the gender confused, the drug addicts, the clones. I
*do* have a Pisces Moon (or maybe "I'm half-human, Captain."), which gives me
a sympathy for the outcasts.  Furthermore I even have a sympathy for the
perpetrators of crimes, not only the victims. But sympathy does not imply
condoning behavior.

> Healing requires acceptance and understanding.

It is an insult to a person to accept behavior from him/her that he/she
ultimately doesn't find acceptable to him/herself. Healing also comes from
a person gaining self-respect.

"Truth is not as complicated as men's opinions of it." I think we need less
clever, convoluted thinking and more experience-near, common sense thinking.
