After grad school I had trouble landing a decent job.
In fact I never have had any luck working for other people.

If we have dominion, we're like the parents.
Are responsible parents abusive and murderous towards their children? No.
So I still believe in the Bible, but I interpret more responsibly now.
Things aren't perfect in my life. I still don't have a steady income, but I don't contribute to the mass torture and slaughter of innocent animals.
Now I work to get other people to see that their animal-using ways aren't to their benefit.
I guess I'm in the ministry after all.
