AS YOURS IS BEAUTIFUL TO YOU.
I dedicate this to Reshmi Inamdar as this was born out of a posting on her facebook, however this statement was made in 2009 when I was recognized as a religious communicator of the year by Religious communications Council of Dallas - http://mikeghouseforamerica.blogspot.com/2009/04/mike-ghouse-honored-by-rcc.html
My religion is beautiful to me,
as yours is beautiful to you.
Religion is about humility,
that builds bridges.
Religion is not arrogance,
arrogance causes conflicts.
You did not get your religion right,
if it makes you look down on others.
then you did not get your religion right.
So, I declare today;
that my religion is NOT superior to any,
my religion makes me humble and caring,
and respecting the otherness of others.
