Vincent Law couldn't cope

Well said Tommy Ong and Eddie Fernandez.

Vincent Ong took on a case that was beyond him. This experience must be quite revelatory for himself.

I sometimes tell my children you can't sit under a tree to think and discover who you are. Life will reveal your true nature. Indeed we don't know ourselves.

So what should Vincent have done? He should have ignored that miscreant and stay safe. At the very least have the self confidence to brush off and ignore that miscreant molest allegations. This whole episode feels like an analogue of a story from the Acts of the Apostles. Easier and faster for me to borrow from somewhere than write my own story right?

Acts 19:11-17New Living Translation (NLT)

11 God gave Paul the power to perform unusual miracles. 12 When handkerchiefs or aprons that had merely touched his skin were placed on sick people, they were healed of their diseases, and evil spirits were expelled.
13 A group of Jews was traveling from town to town casting out evil spirits. They tried to use the name of the Lord Jesus in their incantation, saying, “I command you in the name of Jesus, whom Paul preaches, to come out!”14 Seven sons of Sceva, a leading priest, were doing this. 15 But one time when they tried it, the evil spirit replied, “I know Jesus, and I know Paul, but who are you?” 16 Then the man with the evil spirit leaped on them, overpowered them, and attacked them with such violence that they fled from the house, naked and battered.
17 The story of what happened spread quickly all through Ephesus, to Jews and Greeks alike. A solemn fear descended on the city, and the name of the Lord Jesus was greatly honored.

I had made it a point to ignore Amos Yee but this little devil has a knack of entering the places where I usually am. Damn him.

I will not be wasting my time reading his 6,000 word rant. That would be one of the stupidest use of time.

But Amos has also turned out to be surprisingly useful for revealing the true colors of some people, especially the thoughtless free speech advocates. Amos hasn't vindicate them one bit but only proved that they were quite wrong.

Now Amos is too radioactive for anyone to handle except the Law. Punishment is the only counseling he will understand. Prior to that he cannot be successfully educated.

I feel deeply sorry for his parents.
