Drop your burdensome frustrations. > I don't feel that I need to defend or answer for everything religion has done. Right on! > I apologize for bringing the subject here. What my real frustration was was due to the fact that this was a forum which, as I said, had a portion designated for religious discussions and it was dominated by anti-religious sentiment. Drop you burdensome expectations. Try to cultivate an 'attitude of gratitude' for what you get here. > I truly believe that many of the issues that are facing our world - the death of the environment, unrestricted greed - are caused by rampant materialism, in both the sense of money and in the sense of denying the spiritual. I think we need more, not less spiritual input in our world, and anything remotely spiritual seems to be struck down. The world will never go the way you and I *know* it ought to go. Don't worry, be happy. --ED
