Today I have beheld the biggest LIE that I have ever seen in print! " Religion Is Dead In America" What black hole have you gotten your head stuck into? I think that you watch entirely too much of the television. Your opinions of us and our beliefs are totally off the mark. WHY DON"T YOU MAKE SOME EFFORT TO REALLY GET TO KNOW US? Go out into the country side and spend some time with the real people. Go to work on a farm for a while. Go out and dig ditches, cut wood and carry water. DO SOMETHING USEFUL TO CONTRIBUTE TO LIFE. Then you will understand us. Then you will see us as we truly are.

You talk about G-D as if you really know HIM. Yet your words betray your ignorance. I do not hate you. I don't care if you are a Muslim. If you trully LOVE G-D then you are welcome in my house. But do not think to convert me to your religion. I have my own relationship to G-D and that will suffice me to the end of my days. I do not need your IMAMS or your KORAN. Neither do I need the CHURCH or its BIBLE. To my thinking these are but more GRAVEN IMAGES. The commandment forbids the making of graven images. G-D can be known only through the living of life. You cannot trully "KNOW" G-D if you do not trully "LIVE" and you do not live if you spend all of your time sitting around reading books. G-D DOES NOT LIVE IN ANY BOOK NO MATTER HOW INSPIRED THE AUTHOR MIGHT BE! G-D LIVES ONLY IN THE EXPERIENCE OF LIFE. When you finally understand my words then you will make a trully great discovery for your self.

The written word is only a crutch for the crippled mind. If a mans mind is whole then he has no need for Korans or Bibles. He hears and sees G-D in everything that is around him. His religion is his life and his being in the world and it needs no labels, no "Itys" or 'Isms", no mosque or church, no Imams or priests. That is a "TRUE RELIGION". All else is false and merely a seeking of the ignorant, the deaf and the blind. It becomes the tool and the plaything of arrogant and greedy men who seek power to rule over others. G-D ordains no man to rule over anyone but himself.
