Can’t we all just get along?


The USA is partly founded on religious freedom of expression, and we sure have it these days with a multiplicity of religions seemingly gaining momentum in many areas. On the eastside – my neck of the woods – there are a variety of temples and ‘alternative’ worship centers popping up all over.
Middle American Judeo-Christian values are being challenged on a broad scale from all sides: both religious and non-religious or ‘secular’. Is Christianity seems to be losing its relevance. Are we in some sort of evolving societal dynamic, and do we need to wake up, smell the coffee (ah yes, the Northwest is famous for that) and change. Can’t we all just get along and agree that as long as you believe in something for the betterment of mankind, that’s OK – a sort of ‘live and let live’ approach?
