Subject: RE: Religious (or otherwise) Doorknockers. (BS)
I don't feel any need to apologize to religious proselytizers (is that a word?)
I don't have a lot of respect for people who don't know me, don't really care about me, and won't remember me 6 months from now-- but who profess to feel great love for me.

As musicians, we don't all hear the music the same way. And certainly we don't all play in the same style, or with the same degrees of complexity.

Likewise, there are many paths to understanding God - Yahweh, The Great Spirit, the Oneness --whatever is your perception of the God principle.
From my former life as a Christian, I believe the strongest commandment is still, for me : Love thy neighbor. Today that means everyone in the world, and it means respecting their choice of philosophy, so long as it does not cause harm to others.

My thoughts, anyway
