Pretentious title, eh?
The topic, however has been on many minds and lips of late for reasons of season and state. So, I ask your indulgence.
Now some of you might find this hard to believe, but I'm not a faith-based entity per se.
However, unlike many who claim belief loudly I actually have read the Bible from cover to cover, front to back. But don't quote me on it.
Proof I'm not Satan, I suppose. Or could it be...?
As always, I find myself fortunate indeed to have many acquaintances who have not had their intellect dampened by a spirit-based social system of their birth or choice, in possession of a strengthening component within their lives instead of an inhibiting counter-force to one's short woe.
Lift them higher so that they may carry the tide toward a theocracy-free society, I say.
Live and let live, as what another might worship lawfully or practice benignly towards those of other paths is no concern of mine.
But...there's a snake in the house...and there are many houses.
So I would say to those of faith that their house must be cleaned, as all houses should be cleaned...Cleaned of hate, fear, lies, treachery, criminality, stupidity, cowardice, and malice - and instead filled with love, respect, and wisdom.
For all of you of faith or otherwise, that is my wish for you this day from my side of the divide over to yours.
Because it's always on the verge of ending, isn't it?
Unless a change comes.
