The silliness of religion…

2007_01162007ireland0179

Christianity is a lifestyle – a way of being in the world that is simple, non-violent, shared, and loving. However, we made it into an established “religion” (and all that goes with that) and avoided the lifestyle change itself. One could be warlike, greedy, racist, selfish, and vain in most of Christian history, and still believe that Jesus is one’s “personal Lord and Savior” . . . The world has no time for such silliness anymore. The suffering on Earth is too great.

  1. Richard Rohr is, without doubt, one of the most sensitive and sensible voices out there today. More in touch with people and the reality of their lives than most!!
