The problem is this continuous battle between religions.
Some people may be offended by the Star of David, others by the Cross..simply due to the fact they don't believe in what it stands for.
I saw in the news a place up in New York in which the Nativity scene was not allowed to be displayed in public and yet at the same time many Jewish
symbols were abound. The argument was made that if the Jewish are allowed to display their belief, then so should we (Catholics)...(I'll try to find
a link for this article)(Also if anyone has an article or story similar to this please share with the rest of us.)
So we have some people who want religion out of sight, some other people that want to show their belief wherever they want, and people who have no
problem whether or not it is in the public eye or not (that would be me, as long as it in not in the form of a goat head or upside down pentagram, oh
yes and not on my front lawn, or knocking at my door)
So it seems the solution that we have come up with is since you can't live in the presence of God peacefully, you'll have to live with the absence
and it is a shame, for we look so much at the cover of religion, instead of the basic message to love and help one another that religion teaches us.
(unless of course you follow the steps of the Devil himself.)
Do you believe in God Winston Smith?
