Seriously though I think people are too fixated on the word "dark". I think darkworking is simply working out of self interest, whereas lightworking is working out of love for others. I've found myself lost in the process of trying to help others time and again, so I honestly think that the best use of my time and energy will be spent on me. For everyone, myself included

The result : Thousands upon thousands of people died from AIDS in Africa because they listened to Pope.
He knew what is AIDS and how it was spreading. Nevertheless he didn't want to pull his statement back.
What a horrid re-writing of history! John Paul was preaching abstinence, not sex without protection. In other words, waiting for marriage, commitment and monogamy. I don't share his beliefs, but I think he was just terribly misguided and failed to read his audience or the consequences of his beliefs.
This thread reads to me like a list of people to condemn and I don't like it. Every individual believes he or she is right in what she or he is doing, Stalin and Hitler included.
Judge not lest ye be judged.
