I’m sick of it.
You know about that which of I am speaking: a company, a book, arrogance, hatred, comments and non-stop judgment pouring forth from every corner.
I AM SICK OF IT!
Reading the comments people have been making; the assertions, the burying-of-their heads in the sand. To be honest, it has been a long time since my faith in what humanity could be has been so shaken.
First it was the black race that was “animals.” People espousing themselves to be leaders of their “religion” HUNG black people from trees. They beat them, and then tied them to spits and, literally, roasted them over flames while they poked them with sticks and laughed. There’s your religion – arrogance and ego and a total lack of compassion.
Then, (and now in some places), it was all about how awful it was for races to mix – no whites with blacks, that’s just wrong. Such unfathomable stupidity. What race are you? HUMAN. Skin color HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RACE. And yet it continues.
Humans . . . people . . . that’s all we are. And unless we are killing or hurting others, (which must be addressed through our legal system, and as a matter of compassion towards victims and perpetrators), then we are entitled to share every personal liberty that is afforded to any other human.
Silence is complicity. If we KNOWINGLY give our money to an individual or corporation that forwards that money to organizations that push an agenda that would deny rights to certain groups of people, then we are surely total strangers to the energy that we call God.
It dumbfounds me. It dumbfounds me that someone could actually claim to know the energy of Creation – to have a personal relationship with that power – and then be a walking embodiment of judgment. No thanks. You can keep your religion and your indefensible assertion that you are unquestionably “right” in your judgment.
I don’t really care if what I have written here offends you. I don’t care if it pisses you off. I don’t care if you never read my blog again, or “unfriend” me from Facebook, or become convinced that I am going to hell. Here is a short list of humans who were absolutely convinced that they were right in their judgment of their fellow-man:
The leaders of the Inquisition
Every suicide bomber
George Custer, (and the people who fostered the idea of the genocide of Native Americans)
Osama Bin Laden
This is a short list. Are you the judge of who is worthy, of who merits civil rights, of who is going to hell? Fine. Add your name to the list. As I wrote, I am sick of it.
Cultivate love and compassion. It’s the only hope any of us have.
Many Blessings To All…
