Happy New Year, Everyone.
The Religious Right have no monopoly on religion, faith, or spirituality, despite their self-righteous attempts to impose themselves on the rest of us and become the Religion of the Land, with (my opinion) their own version of Sharia Law.
Spiritually, I am an eclectic, and since I believe each and every one of us is God’s Child, I support open-hearted conversation that involves listening to the other person and responding to what they are actually saying. I support social and economic policies that I think are in the highest good of the most people, especially the American working classes who are currently hurting, but also the peoples of the world. I am put off by policies that honor soulless corporations over people, and am appalled that our Supreme Court seems to disagree with me on that.
I don’t want to go on about my own beliefs (see the spiritual musings page for that), but I want to see if a discussion can develop over the next few days that answers the question:
How does your spiritual outlook, religious faith, or lack thereof, inform your politics?
BTW, can someone else who uses WordPress tell me how to create a new post anywhere other than the front page of this blog?Advertisements
