sorry it should have read “ascribe blame to the puppet ALONE... The perpetrators family inheritance is also to blame ...

But you are correct that we should never feel that we have no choice in the matter... no matter how small that choice might seem

Thank you for your comments TXB I really get what you're saying. It makes a lot of sense.

I'm sorry to anyone who might feel that I'm trying to excuse anybody for anything or to use theology to avoid responsibility.

It is my opinion that in so many cases religion just compounds the neurosis we all have ....

anyway We all bring so many assumptions to the table about religion and spirituality and it's really hard to talk about it. And I'm not sure that it's really all that relevant except in very specific areas of healing.

thanks again
