I will say that I agree with his holiness Pope John Paul II completely on this issue, however what he is saying isn't anything new. He has been
calling for Americans to help the less fortunate for a long time, and he is absoutely right.
The worship of matterial wealth is rampant in America, I have said this many times before, anyone who reads the mud pit may have heard me. The point
though is that there are those who need our help, and our care. Americans need to share their huge wealth, only good may come of it.
Also America has grown increasingly hostile to her fellow countries as of late, this I believe has also greatly troubled the Pope (he did give Bush
quite a tounge lashing last week,) and i do think he is right there as well.
Now as a Pagan, I do not think that the path to America's salvation lies in becoming more Christian, but the teachings of Christ are what the United
States needs. People should be free to worship whatever god or goddess or whatever they want, but the ideas of caring, helping, and above all
forgivness should be what Americans hold true. This can be done quite easily with separtation of Church and State, America does not need to do
exactly what is considdered Christian, but instead what is ethical and open minded.
