Reader comment on item: Obama, the Middle East and Islam - An Initial Assessment
in response to reader comment: rites and rituals don't cut it

Submitted by Keith Williams (United States), Feb 20, 2009 at 18:32

Hi,

Well said and that is kind of what I have been saying. Only that the rituals that we perform in our religions help us in attaining our personal relationship and closeness to God. I love Islam because I have five times throughout the day to focus on God and everything that he does for us and all the wonderful blessings as well as thinking of all of the people in the world who don't have that and pray for them. Also for forgiveness and strength and guidance to continue the struggle. To each his own.

peace
