Letter to the Cape Cod Today Editor;
I'd like us all to help bring about World Peace. Here is one way to begin: Debunking Morally Bankrupt Religious Concepts:
I'd like to explain what it is people and organizations in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, and in all the rest of the world, can help us Americans do something about the Far Right Religious problems we are all experiencing. (Americans could also get all Federal, State and Local Government Officials pushing their 'religion' on violation of separation of church and state, as one of the side egregious offenses during the Bush presidency years, and for all years to come).
I would also like to explain about how I know it is that G Bush is taking the United States, the country I live in, in the wrong direction.
1. George Bush has sided with the Fundamentalist Born Again type of religion, of which he says he is a member.
2. George Bush's actions are guided by his religion, a religion that intends to be as horrifically oppressive as the exposure of his beliefs is beginning to show us. And please realize that - this oppression really is going on with all of the religions that worship ideas created by people Banished from Eden.
3. It is a long understood fact with normal religious leaders that Fundamentalism, is (not of any God or God Concept but) rather, of man's corrupt nature to seek what is not ready or perhaps privy to know, and, ergo the figurative reason for banishment into a world of lions, tigers, and all manner of evil.
4. The extremist have missed this Glaring fact, that God(head) sent people who seek knowledge about good and evil away from the garden. God did not send all people away! People can redeem themselves. All religions teach this.
So, to hone it all into easily remembered concept: jihadists, Extremists, Right Wingers, All people with religious beliefs that hate, oppress and/or discriminate have been banished by God(head).
It is these people who cannot be redeemed until they stop the hate, strife, oppression and murder.
Understanding this also brings us back onto the Path to World Peace, as well.
We need to hear from all people, especially those in other countries who have already silenced the Hatred Espoused by the Far Right Religious Factions!
