Thread Name: BS: The Religious Left
Subject: RE: BS: The Religious Left
Why should a belief in "life after death" have any bearing on how we attempt to make this world a better place to live in.

Can we not simply band together as humans to fight injustice and expose tyrany of all types.
I have always believed that religious beliefs like "everlasting life"
"rising from the dead", the idea of God as a "supreme being" ect were very personal foibles, with no relation to how we conduct our public duties.

With the exception of Bobert the religious left on Mudcat seem more interested in advancing the ideas of orthadox religion than those of socialism...Ake
