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.

I presume Brett feels that Jews, Christians and Muslims--half the population of the world--must be unethical because they worship this God.  In the Christian religion, sinners can be sent to eternal hell. That doesn't prevent Christians from worshipping Jesus and believing that he stands for forgiveness, even though Aquinas said the joy of those who go to heaven is that they can listen to the shrieks of the damned forever.  Pretty bloody that, I would say!  The Hindu religion has some fiercely destructive gods too. I guess Brett doesn't recognize destructive forces as a religious factor.  Maybe he wants a free ride in sinning and not be held responsible for anything.
