    Place it under God's protection, and your anger will become a force for life and justice.

    The West did not have to wait for Zen techniques to learn how to understand and manage anger. Seneca, Aristotle, Plutarch, Cicero, St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, Montaigne … all of them discussed, debated, and hated, as much as they defended, the emotion of anger.

    The ancients believed that anger resides deep in the body, between the liver and the intestines. Anger comes from the Latin ira (ire), and the Greek hira, which means guts, bile. Many of us have felt at some time or another a sudden, sharp inner burning take hold in our gut, turn our stomach, and erupt out of our mouth. Anger is literally our gut crying out, they said. No wonder then that bile and ire are at the origin of our understanding of anger, literally meaning “to spew out bile.”

    Definitely. The political thing has turned cult like imo. It just unfortunate that it is tied to so many other issues that we believers are and should be concerned about.
