I grant you, doing whatever you please generally feels good. Having sex is way more fun than going to church. Whether that’s true pleasure or not, I’ll let you decide.
I think what Tyrel Bramwell may be getting at with this week’s sign, is that doing whatever you feel like may not be best for the common good.
For instance, it might feel really good for you to post a sign in your community that echos your bigoted beliefs on a weekly basis. Yeah, it really feels good when you can make the libs cry.
But when it has been pointed out through conversations, protests, editorials, and even politically that you are inspiring hate and dividing a community, then certainly that is not true pleasure.
True pleasure is living your life by the golden rule, doing unto others, as you would have them do unto you. Kindness, in other words. You know, that very characteristic that Bramwell was ranting against the other week.
