Here is my preemptive strike on Justice Sunday II:
Let me start off by saying – I was born in a cult. Oh – is that ever a conversation starter! Just to see the faces on people as they inch away from me at parties – it’s priceless!
“So how does that make you feel about religion, Tina?”
Like I always say: One man’s rapture is another man’s 70 virgins in paradise.
I like science. I like numbers. I like the great mysteries of the universe. I like not having all the answers. It makes me feel – small, right sized – you know HUMAN.
I will offer this: there are 6 billion people on this planet. We are a very, very, very successful species. And out of that 6 billion there are only a billion certified atheists. So in a democratic kind of way (if the world population were voting on the issue) – there probably is a God. And also in a democratic kind of way (if the world population were voting on the issue) – the God that there probably is – probably ISN’T yours.
There is a difference between a religious country and a country that is free to worship. In religious countries people are brought into the fold via gun point. That’s quite a religious experience. Now I ask you, what kind of country do you REALLY want to live in?
