Color Me Libetarian-Religious!I am one of those (we are a majority, I am sure) who feel the religious issue is WAY out of proportion!
The major religions are ALL out-of-step with their constituency.....
The Catholic heirarchy is firmly embedded in the 18th century.
The extremist Muslims are likewise dealing with beliefs of the 1400s to the 1500s....
They find no change possible for today. That is IDIOCY!
We Christians are people who forgive....we are also people who move and adapt to the times and the focus of life.
Islamists want to live in the times of their religious origins.....2,000 or more years ago.
That is NOT possible in today's world......
We need religion for TODAY....in each and every major religion.
Can it happen?
But there need be a firm and driving force to see that the world does not adhere to the Islamists and their ideals of what they view "should be"....
Time for reality to show us the way!
I will declare here that I am a non-practicing Presbyterian Deacon (ordained) from 30 plus years ago!
