I AM BECAUSE WE ARE

Welcome to Roger’s Take on Religion: An Inclusive Perspective

America, it seems, is becoming more accepting of racial differences and less tolerant of religious differences.

According to a recent study by University of Minnesota sociologists, for every religious group there’s a significant increase over the past decade in disapproval of marriage outside one’s own faith. At the same time, there’s significantly less disapproval of a child marrying a person of another race.

What is being suggested here is that it is more acceptable today for a non-black to marry an African-American than for a non-Muslim to marry a Muslim. (Muslims have replaced atheists as the most hated group in America.)

Religion, not race, is our new scapegoat.

Here’s My Take: There’s an African word, ubuntu, that means “I am because we are.” Without this inclusivity, the God of love gets ditched again.

    • Thanks David. I try to read a few religion-related articles each day and make note of words and sayings that offer a sense of inclusiveness. Ubuntu was found in an article in which an African pastor was calling for respect of gay Africans. Thanks for reading.

    KAYE JOHNSTON contacted me about wring a statement about Michael for an event by Danny up and coming. I read it too quick as usual and thought she was asking me to write a piece on Tom Comstock which I would rather not do. Little did I know it was Dannys event for Tom Johnston. I declined. It got ugly. Of course I would write a piece fro Micheal it was my mistake on who was for in my hurried manner. Now she has cut off communication and I do not know what to do. I will start of the piece the evening in hopes you can help me bro this out. It is my fault for not taking the time to read carefully. She is pissed.

    Any help???
