God Is One, Religions Are All Good, Repeat After Me….

Alright, right off the bat, let me say this; I do not, for a moment, believe that religion is what is being fought over. At best, misguided morality is at the steering wheel, and at worst, an economic lust and cultural hubris. However, it’s all over the media…Islam, Christianity, Judaism. It’s all over the place. You want to talk religion? Fine, then let’s talk religion. What do I see? The Judaeo-Christian world ‘evaluating‘ Islam on TV. The power players muttering to their people, under their breath, that all religions are one. And then – what do I hear? “You see, the people who are willing to send young boys to their death in the name of Allah, are now hiding out in caves.” Says Mr. Bush.

I was at a friend’s place lately, and we were both talking about … The World. Yes, we have those sort of conversations. We were wondering what it is that the world really needs. We were thinking that it must be ignorance that’s causing all this strife. That information is not flowing fast enough, and not to the right people. We were thinking that if everybody could speak to everybody then surely the wars would cease. Surely once everybody knew everybody else’s point of view, then understanding would take place.
