Title: About Me and Organized Religion
Rabbis or Leaders of other Faiths concerned with being able to attract the Congregation
With drawing crowds of “Customers”
Who say they are acting in the name of God … or Humanity … or Righteousness
Infuse their personal opinions,
And infer theological “correctness” of those Opinions by their delivering them to the Congregation.
Members caught up in
Buildings, budgets, boards, and committees
Seemliness in front of other religious communities
Local and international politics
Attend services that are about the same from evening to the following morning (but for a change in sermon)
Which are redundant because of Tradition or because the writer of the Service thinks we need reinforcing
Or because he hopes to get 2 different sets of “customers” … one in the A.M. … one in the P.M.
God seems to have Little To Do with what I know to be modern day Organized Religion of any Faith.
