I’m not a religious person; I’m a spiritual person. I believe we are spiritual beings currently experiencing life as human beings. I am interfaith; an interfaith Christian on the path of Bahkti yoga. That’s how I currently describe my spiritual path.
If you’ve followed my weekend meditations, you’ll know that I honor the mystical traditions of all religions: Hindu, Christian, Islam, Buddhist, and Native Peoples.
I’ve always been open-minded. If you choose not to believe in God, Spirit, a higher consciousness, or something other than your individualized self, that’s fine with me. I won’t try to convert you or preach to you. I long ago realized that you can’t convince anyone of anything; you just have to live your life as an example and let others learn in their own time and place.
However, I do draw the line when it comes to people replacing God with a human being and that’s what seems to be happening with The One.
How many videos do we have to see of grade school children being taught to sing the praises of The One in schools where it is unlawful to celebrate any type of religious holiday, in particular if it is Christian, before we shout out and demand that this stop, now.
First there was the classroom in New Jersey; click here to view that video.
Now, there is the PTO meeting in North Carolina; click here to view that video.
What the heck is wrong with parents? They can’t say they didn’t know, when the performance was at a PTO meeting. I guess they thought it was cute. Oh, I know, I’ve heard the excuse. It was in February for President’s Day; hey, that’s supposed to be about George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. At least, when I was a kid, that’s what we celebrated. Two Presidents who were long dead and we got the day off…no singing the praises of these two for sure. George was our first President and he couldn’t tell a lie and Abe preserved the Union and he was honest. That’s all I remember.
We also have a video of adult community organizers actually praying to The One. You might not have seen this one:
I am thoroughly disgusted. This is not ok. Well, the adult community organizers can do whatever they want, as misguided as it is, but to indoctrinate young children is outrageous.
If we are all that desperate for someone or something to save us, why don't we just go back to God? I don't get it. We don't believe in God and therefore we cannot mention God in our schools or any other public place, but we can use a human being as a replacement and that is ok. Where are the atheists when you need them? Hey, I hope you atheists contact the ACLU and file a lawsuit banning the use of The One's name in public schools. That might be useful.
I watch and/or listen to Glenn Beck off and on and I think he has done a great job researching the current administration and teaching us about the interlocking relationships between all of The One’s radical friends and teachers. Sometimes he seems almost a bit too much in all of his emoting, but that’s ok. He’s a spiritual being having a human experience, and that can be difficult.
But, heck, I’m going to post this video from his show where he talks about God being missing in the USA these days. He makes some decent points.
