Once Again, UK Church Leaders Show How It Should Be

March 9, 2011

Not ‘Destroy those who disagree with me’.

Not ‘My way is the right way’.

No. These church leaders have put human condition ahead of religious affiliation. I have the greatest respect for any leader, any person who puts humanity ahead of personal bias. I only wish our religious vendetta – terrorists had half this genuine ‘christian’ love for their fellow humans.

Religion is contentious, but it needn’t be, if its public face is as these. Support, honor, respect – and religion is not forced on anyone. anywhere. At any time.

Cherish the minds and ideas that make us human. Cherish our creativity and our visions. Do not lock them into narrow cells of hate and ignorance.
