Loving Nature

To us, a person cannot fully love God unless he or she also loves God's creation:

whether it's expressed in the form of Mary's painting at the top of the page, or in Carol Vito's photo of this winter wonderland,

or through the gentle beauty of this mother and child drinking water,

or the beauty of this spotted touch-me-not,

or through this cat and rat who prove that Isaiah's prophecy of a peaceable kingdom (11:6-9) is a reality,

or through this peaceful encounter with a mouse in a tree.

Well, since you ask, Maynard, I fail to see how any ethical person can worship the highly unethical deity that is presented in the Bible. It appears to me to take some rather creative spin to escape the perception of a creator who is willing to let his creation perish in eternal flames for a failure to believe in "doctrine X".

Coupled with it's central theme, which from my perspective appears to center around a bloody human sacrifice (thereby perpetuating the old "cleansing blood" idea that has been responsible for such a holocaust throughout time) it hardly seems a model of the benevolence of God and the sanctity of life.

Just my perspective, offered free of malice, and only since you asked.
