All You Need is Love Dat DaDa DaDa

Lennon/McCartney Got It. Why Can't CASHRA?
"All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need."
The Beatles recorded "Love is All You Need" in 1967. However, they weren't the first to suggest that love is all you need.

Jesus, you might remember Him, when he was here a couple of millenia ago, (How soon we forget) left us with two commandments, the first was to Love God, and the second was to Love our neighbour as ourselves.

Not too long after that St. Paul, when he was writing his first letter to the Corinthians wrote in Chapter 13 from verses 4-8 to tell us some of the characteristics of love that: “Love is always patient and kind; it is never jealous, love is never boastful or conceited; it is never rude or selfish; it does not take offense, and is not resentful. Love takes no pleasure in other people’s sins but delights in the truth; it is always ready to excuse, to trust, to hope, and to endure whatever comes. Love does not come to an end.”

Yet, our Human Rights Commissions and Tribunals are after us to find instances of discrimination and report them so that miscreants can be brought to justice.

Jim Corcoran is busy winning friends and gaining influence in the Peterborough Diocese of the Catholic Church by doing that. Darren Lunch did it in Red Deer to Stephen Boissoin.

But, I think that Barb Hall and Jennifer Lynch and their ilk are Led Zeppelin fans particularly "Stairway to Heaven" types:
There's a lady who's sure
All that glitters is gold
And she's buying a stairway to heaven.
When she gets there she knows
If the stores are all closed
With a word she can get what she came for.
Or maybe Not. "Ooh, it makes me wonder."
