For years, I've been talking about the three monotheistic religions to nonbelievers. And here is what I here : " At best, Jews, Christians and Muslims look like three religious stooges in a slapstick comedy. At worst, they look like three brothers with hands clasped in prayer and soaked in blood." We have littered history with incredible amounts of stupidity, injustice and suffering.
In every relationship, there comes a threshold when mere apologies will not do anymore. It seems we have crossed that line.
The world has simply had it with us. Nobody is listening anymore. Until we embrace the limitations of our own creaturehood, we have nothing more to say or do to make the difference we were meant to make in the world.
The mission is over. Monotheism will either die or evolve.
If you read one book this year, read Samir Selmanovic's " It's Really All About God " It is a game changer, he raises the stakes of all religion. Finally a voice comes offering hope at the collision of religions in the intersection of life.
