Be the Change.....Do unto Others...... Just Words?

This article caught my eye.


What do you think of this?


Closing Statement from W T

This debate topic was essentially a discussion of an article that dealt with the distribution of Bibles and Atheist literature at 11 high schools in Orange County, Florida.

I invite anyone coming here to read through the thread and enjoy the many links provided.

I have learned quite alot from the information shared here, as I'm sure you all have also.

Most notibly, is the wrong idea many have of the term "separation of church and state" in this country.

I want to thank Pabitra and Edulover for your two last posts, I apologize that I was not able to respond to them due to the time difference between our two sides of the globe.

Pabitra, your last entry gives us much to think about. They are wonderful words to close this debate. Thank you!

Thank you to all who contributed!!!

  • Jun 16 2013: I read it......All of the tension between All of the parties emerges from their misperception of Reality(including the Atheists). They have simply missed the entire point. None of them are Bad people.....they are simply doing the Best that They can.

    Regardless of intention, or Rules that they strive to live by, the tension and fighting and aggro'ness will continue as long as the Misperception Continues. Same for all Egoic-Fighting. All a Big Misunderstanding.

      Jun 17 2013: Scott, yes, I agree that it all stems from misperceptions.

      But how do you feel about the fact that it was done with children in the middle of it all?
      • Jun 19 2013: Less than 5 minutes ago: It reflects relative Awareness. Or, it's absence. Technological advances Speed along! Human Evolution is slow and a wayssssss off from being a Conscious process. For now, it remains primarily Unconscious. We are not separate from any of these folks. They are sleeping........the extreme nature of Situations drives many to deeper depths of Sleep and Separateness. It Awakens others. The sleepers are most vocal for they are most fearful.

        Doing Unto Others and Being The Change is not some Rule that we should live by to keep things reasonable. It is THE way of Teaching those Who Sleep.
