And there is not a one among us that won't need another at some point.
Hannigan on hiatus is a done thing. He did what he did. The temple responded. Insofar as he can't read or respond to anything here, have the self-respect to stay quiet if you have nothing constructive to add. Talking trash now is cowardly.
My sense is that everyone involved needs a moment to reflect. No one is in a position to talk trash, myself included. No more justifying bad behavior. Hannigan will look to Hannigan, with a little help from friends. The rest of us can look to our own conduct.

Sorry Br John. I Think I should be clear that I was responding with curiosity about the philosophical considerations, not in regards to the issue at hand itself. The conversation has moved and will remain in PM.

Part of the seduction of most religions is the idea that if you just say the right things and believe really hard, your salvation will be at hand.

If a Jedi, or many Jedi, bite, perhaps they should reconsider there position as a Jedi.
We are all still human. As such we will fail at time. That fact that we are Jedi means that we strive to be better.

I do not believe that and I know each and every one of you don't believe that either. We are Jedi. We stand for what we believe in: The Way of the Jedi. It is something we ALL want. Something we ALL strive for. It doesn't matter what the training looks like because everyone is different, therefore training is different for everyone.
As for Mr. Hannigan, I took the facts that he himself posted and displayed them all together and he said that he did not care. I believe this is true, regardless if he feels remorse or not. He was asked multiple times to stop the personal attacks and the rude behavior and he chose not too. I am all for second chances, third chances, fifteenth chances. Read through my journal, you'll see what I mean. But with each chance I give, I also make sure people understand that my trust will take longer and longer to get back. Giving Mr Hannigan a month to think about what he has done and hopefully learn some respect and acceptance for ALL who strive to be Jedi would be an acceptable punishment for his behavior and the fact this is not the first time. I will always extend my hand to someone in friendship and be willing to help them out, but they also have to be willing to help themselves first.
As I said before, I believe he has great potential and that he could be just as great as any one of us as long as he is willing to humble himself and accept others for who and what they are. It is a simple thing to do, but not always easy when we are set in our ways. It is all a simple choice: accept and respect or judgment and disrespect. I do not speak out of anger or any other emotions. I speak the truth as an unbiased Jedi would when presented with the information that we have all seen. Take it as you like and May the Force be with you all.
