The right to suffer unnecessarily, because the Bible doesn't clarify
that Joseph, patron saint of a happy death, was cool with it because,
in addition to not having to worry about going to hell - it hadn't yet
been invented - he was also stoked on poppy?
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint
to come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
