Rick Warren: A life of purpose
I need it for me. If someone has a problem with that it's theirs to keep. Having a relationship with God is for those who want it, and sometimes even for those who don't think they want it only because they don't know how to begin. I don't believe in hell. Believing in God doesn't mean we all believe in hell.

I would like to hear people's perspectives about an inherent lack of respect in our culture, and how we can teach transcendence of such?
it has it's pro's and cons. I think though we would be better off using the telephone and embracing face to face in person relationships like it use to be. It's healthier mentally and physically. If it were a pay service there would be far less negativity on facebook if u get my drift. The government being able to listen to us is good in someways, and not so good in others. I have dialed back my usage for personal reasons...just need to get out more, my husband of 14 years passed and, well, u understand. I have a website if u care to check it out. http://www.maryrondoni.com Have a good Sunday. God Rocks. p.s. i didn't proofread, lol.

Why is it important for religion to remain separate from politics?
Age,experience, class and upbringing also affect/effect our views. Having said all that, midway through my time here, I agree they should be separate. It's tough though life isn't black or white, there is so much gray. We make decisions (as do politicians and the like) on what we believe, what we believe is colored by religion sometimes. Good Topic :-D would love to hear back from you. We should be able to do what we want with our bodies and take our birth control; if someone from xyz believes based on religion, feel otherwise let them do so in their own family with their own body. My meager 2cents lol.

I see the world as full of options. Perhaps you need to really think about it. You don't know me. If by my comment wanting to form a support group of people just like me (many do it all the time, they just happen to be perhaps asian or whatever.) Obviously when I said white, you assumed I meant color, what I was am referring to is caucasian ie...that could be spanish, asian etc.) so perhaps u aren't as smart as you think you are. definition of caucasian, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caucasian_race

Multiculturalism creates stress. Now that America is not longer still trying to become (we are grounded with a constitution and laws) greed has taken over. This lack of respect will remain as long as everyone is trying to be rich and powerful. I wanted to start a caucasian women's support group and was told that would be racist. Someone asked why would a white person need support. Well, because when one is with their own kind they feel more relaxed and share a common bond, therefore are at liberty to share and support one another. It's a shame in a country I was born in double standards have prevented me from doing so. Another reason for lack of respect is the breakdown of the american family leaves children without proper manners. I know this is kinda all over the place. Topics I touched on however have led lack or respect toward one another and our elders.

Definition of basic needs in current context
Gosh, this question is so important. It's answer once a simple one is no longer unless we all are willing to compromise, except of course the minimalists. What the basic needs for the rich is different for the middle class, or poor. Not based on reality though. What I think our basic needs are, and what John Doe thinks they are will ultimately come down to the same, but quality of life and death will change.The more we have the more we think we need. Great question btw. You might be interested to know that of the three classes, lower, middle, and upper class the happiest are............wait for it....middle. I have a website, not related to this but...http://www.maryrondoni.com Have a good weekend.
