As human beings we are all born of the same seed. Both science and the Bible make this point very clear. I think it is time we all woke up to this fact and started acting as a family and caring for each other as brothers and sisters, children of the G-d of heaven and our Mother the earth.

If we are to defend freedom then we must oppose all forms of fascism in the name of G-d. We must cast aside the idea of "Converting" others to our religion what ever that religion might be. Let our faith be expressed through acts of kindness and charity and it will speak for itself far louder than any of the pious preachings espoused by those who consider themselves to be "Chosen" to disperse the word of G-d.

Let us leave off with theologies and doctrines as such are only traps to ensnare the unwary. It is not our place to speculate upon the nature of G-d or to determine for others what their idea of G-d must be. But we must defend the right of each to come to G-d according to their own lights and understandings.

Let our minds not be fettered with ritual madness and the mumbling of those who deem themselves to be Pure. Perfection is to G-d alone and we are but imperfect models, we are NOT G-d.

The great Bard once said, "All the world is a stage and all the men and women merely actors". It is the good act that gets the encore so let's get our acts together lest we be booed off the stage of history and consigned to the dump heap of evolution.
