God is where you find him

 

Saw this post today on the Facebook God webpage:

love_muslims(1)

Think what you want about the person running this Facebook page.  If you read through the posts, you see a sincere person behind the pseudonym.  The person asking this question, whether sincere or not is voicing a concern many have and not just Muslims.  The answer is comforting acknowledging fear.

If you look through this persons Facebook page and website there is a disturbing trend of people who contact this person who are angry.  They are yelling and cursing and all under the guise of being so religious and so Christian that their anger is justified.

Last night was the State of the Union address, President Obama’s last one.  When the camera scanned the crowd of Congressmen, you saw the look of hate in the eyes of so many.  So many of whom really are so open in the hate of the President.  Most of whom also espouse to be so religious and righteous.

The people who go out and look for people to hate and those with hate in their eyes are truly frightening people.  They feel so justified in their hate.  I am not a religious person by any stretch of the imagination, but I take the lessons of love and acceptance and I try to live by them.  I am the last person to try to tell someone what it means to be religious, but as with other things it has been said, I don’t know what it is, but I know it when I see it.

Screaming and cursing in the name of religion is not cool.  Suppressing people’s right and freedoms in the name of religion is not cool and sitting with venom in your eyes is not cool and most definitely not a way to be if you claim to follow a religious path.

This comedian in 5 lines has done more the cause of living a religious life then any of the leaders who so loudly claim to be so righteous.  The odd thing about the person who wrote those lines, even using the name of God, has never claimed to be religious, just concerned about people.  When I see that concern and when I see acceptance and I see love, I feel better about people.  God isn’t a character on Facebook, God is where you find him.
