Hey, nobody asked me.  But it seems crazy to allow folks to sue good samaritans acting in good faith.  Often, we’re talking life and death decisions that have to be made in the blink of an eye.  And sure, mistakes will be made.  But I would rather have someone helping me in my need than leaving me waiting for the arrival of some professional when my life was on the line.  Jesus invites us to make and care for our neighbors as we see them in need.  And it makes sense to me that we would follow his invitation, and be the one to help our neighbor in need.
