Hello my friends,
There is no doubt that this is a tragic event. What is more tragic is why this is happening. The media is stoking the flames of religious sentiment
all over the world. Hate sells and everyone is buying it. It is a concerted effort to do one thing, show that ALL religious sentiment is racked with
hate and violence.
Has anyone here ever even met a Muslim Brother?
I have. What I have observed is that they have the same hopes and dreams that we all do. They want a peaceful place to raise their children. They are
loyal to their family. The love their wives. They love their communities. And, just as Christians in this country, they trust their religious leaders.
They do not realise that these leaders, some of them, are as agenda driven as televangelists in this country. In fact, due to the destruction going on
in their country, they are even more devoted to their religious leaders. Afterall, what is the purpose of religious leaders, to give hope when all
else has failed. They are supposed to be the light that leads the way through the darkness of despair. However, they are not for the most part.
Christians, follow the lessons of Christ and stand up and extend the hand of friendship to your Brothers and Sisters. ALL your Brothers and Sisters.
Christ offered a new testament of unconditional Love. He was stoned for it, chased from village to village for it, hated for it and eventually died
for it. Your religion has done great things through out the ages in his name and by his example. Orphans have been cared for around the world,
Hospitals have searched for and treated the poor. The hungry have been fed. But, I have to question you on not standing up and denouncing the way you
have remained silent to radical elements within your mantle. How can you not stand up for your Brothers and Sisters because of their lifestyle
choices? Do you forget Jesus' love for Mary Magdeline? How do you remain silent for abortion bombers? Isn't a greater demonstration of love to
establish parenting centers to teach alternatives? Where is the Christian condemnation of the video that sparked this all? Why do you remain silent on
the testimony of love when it is inconvenient to your world view?
My Muslim Brothers are equally charitable in regards to the care of the sick, the poor, the orphaned. You have given hope to millions around the world
for a better life. You claim Jesus as a wise prophet, yet you disregard his message of unconditional love. My Sufi Brothers and Sisters, why do you
remain quite while your more radical Brothers grow in strength in their message of death and destruction. Is your life here worth more than the one to
come? Do you fear death knowing it is inescapable?
My Jewish Brothers and Sisters, why have you forsaken the commandments? Have you rationalised away your sacred covenant with God? You knew you were to
suffer in this world, yet you continue to shirk that charge. As if God's judgement no longer matters. Those who wish to be judged by Moses, shall
have their desires fulfilled.
My Buddhist Brothers and Sisters, you have the wealth of the world. You gave up all to attain all. Your humility is without question. But, why do you
sit on your wealth and not share it with the world? Does every Man have to come begging for their share of what you know belongs to all? Stand up and
share your message of inner peace that heads may cool and reason prevail.
My Hindu Brothers and Sisters, why have you turned your back on the One and allowed your Brothers and Sisters to be divided up into classes. Have you
forgotten that from whence you came there you shall return only to come again. You know not where you will be for you have not the power to judge.
Lift up your Brothers and Sisters, or they will bring you down. Take this message of peace to heart.
My Brothers and Sisters of the world, who hear their ancestors voices, you hear their lamentations. Your love for this world, its creator and those
who have come and gone is without question. You know that which comes our way if we do not stand up. Why do you remain silent while the world surges
toward annihilation. You have much to contribute to the healing process. It begins with peace and you have a responsibility to bring it about.
My Atheist Brothers and Sisters, your questioning of the existence of God has brought us to ages and advancements we never thought possible. You have
unlocked mysteries that but a few generations ago would have been regarded as pure miracles. Your logic and reason is without question, yet here it
fails. Your insistence that their be no God is destroying the very faith of those who absolutely know it and need it. In your own arrogance you deny
even the possibility of the great Creator, even though time after time it this existence defies every boundary you set. When will your thirst be
quenched? Can you not see how great this thing we call God is? It is not the parts that you study and pick apart, it is the whole functioning
together, so intricately assembled it defies ANY chance of mere random circumstance. You know it, but your arrogance refuses to let you admit it. Your
Logic and reason would much better serve mankind in these times by helping to cool heads, and bring about peace.
To all my Brothers and Sisters, each and everyone of you is responsible for life on this planet. We are all MAN. It was given to us by a God that is
far too complex for any single human mind to ever comprehend. It is beyond name, it is beyond definition, and therefore must be experienced in the
most personal way. It is a quite voice in our head that whispers good counsel. That gives us hope for something more. We dress it up and make it our
very own, for that is how personal a relationship it has with us all. Can we not just accept that we all have a right to our minds and put aside these
God save us all and give us reason to see the error of our ways.
