Let me preface this that I enjoy people watching. I listen and am always amazed by people!
So I was talking to my mom yesterday. We are going to be having an election soon and I was talking to her about how Religion and Politics do not belong together. We live in a melting pot of cultures and religions and it’s just no longer appropriate.
My mom is the stereotypical “White Catholic”, she thinks it sad to see the Lords prayer removed from schools and congress. Of course I took this opportunity to try to enlighten her, so I asked why she felt that way.
“Why should we have to change our culture and beliefs to fit those that came after us? If Canadians or Americans were to move to “their” Country do you think they would change THEIR system to fit us?”
She is upset that Public Schools are not able to say the “Lords Prayer” and she commented on how all the “other” religions are fighting and killing in the name of their religion.
I had to remind her that Catholics and Protestants are fighting still today and that the ‘Religious” groups that are killing innocent people are terrorist cells …that they do not represent the religion as a whole.
Then I had to remind her about the Crusades! ~It got quiet~ Match point.
