What Do We Teach Our Children?

What Do We Teach Our Children?

That Religion is GOD

As we drop our bombs on

The Middle East and Libya

Sowing the same fears and hatreds of the Crusades

Defining the other who is different with an Inquisition

Colonising with the aim of conversion instead of

LOVE, COMPASSION and the SACREDNESS of LIFE.

What do we teach our children?

That religion is GOD

So we can have just wars in

Northern Ireland, Iraq, Libya, Nigeria

Bosnia, Russia, Afghanistan and Syria

Paris, Boipatong, Brussel, Nairobi,

Allepo, Marikana, Orlando.

 

Is it not Religion that Theologised

Slavery, Racism Patriarchy and Sexual Orientation?

Religion is extremes, ultimate extremes

Ultimate separation, ultimate death.

Religion builds churches, mosques and temples

Excluding others from sharing

in the same LOAF.

Making others inferior to ourselves.

And so hiding the TRUE FACE GOD.

 

GOD says: I AM

Don’t ask: IS THERE LIFE AFTER DEATH

Ask rather: IS THERE LIFE BEFORE DEATH

I Am NOT:

A RELIGION

A HUMAN COLOUR

A SHADE OR SHAPE

I AM NO ONES PIGMENT

I AM NO ONES GENDER

AND NO ONES FLAG.

 

I AM

LOVE, LIFE

PEACE, COMPASSION

SHALOM.
