Wednesday Get Over the Hump Free for All
I blame DoReMI and basket. :)
Yesterday’s post here on Moose Pond was a wonderful and inspirational recounting of the Rev. Dr. William Barber’s sermon at Riverside Church yesterday in commemoration of their yearlong “Beyond the Dream: Living King’s Legacy” program. If you missed it, please check it out.
As a child I was informed that the United States of America had something call the separation of church and state. I took this to mean that we were supposed to keep religion out of politics and vice versa. Was taught that because “our forefathers” generally left Europe for these shores fleeing religious persecution, those who no longer wished to be a colony of the English Crown held sacred the idea that people should be free to practice whatever religion they chose, presumably as long as it didn’t harm other people.
It seemed like a pretty good idea. I was in favor.
I guess that was a long time ago.
There is a lot of religion in US politics these days. A lot of what passes for religion. Wiser, smarter and more patient people than I have written articles, books and so forth about it. I don’t have that kind of time, or attention span. So I will do what I do best.
Throw around some cat memes.
