CRIT. JUR. CRIM.

K: 1 James, Treatise Invective against Tobacco,
(Punishment is )
Prynne's loathsome filthiness of unlovely lovelocks
Attribute these antipathies to Sympathy. A man
puts himself into the situation of the persons concerned.

One of the foremost of the reasons for making up such
a catalogue of acts which n a man that makes
a merit to himself of hating, and in consequence
of wishing to see punished, is that God hates them.
Allowing Admitting this to be the fact, to an unprejudiced eye it seems difficult in
to me to see how it can is to warrant the
practical conclusion. Is it that God being willing
is not able to punish them? Is it that what
ought to be done cannot be done without wretched
man lend the Almighty his assistance?

Not so: but it is for God in his wisdom to
choose his instruments. And man is the instrument
he has chosen. Them in In short he has seems to have
chosen: to whom he has given the propensity, and
if others will give them leave the power to do the
business. It is difficult indeed to the last degree difficult to answer these arguments,
but not more difficult than it would be to answer
the same arguments in the mouths of cut-throats ravaging conquerers.
God has given you a propensity to
destroy us: come to see us suffer? Is it so? so much the worse for all of us. There is
no help for it: he has put dissension between your seed
and our seed: we must take the look upon you with
the same aspect as we do serpents, wolves and tygers:
and if necessary make use of the same precautions to defence ourselves.
