Religion. Sigh. Re-li-gion. Deep long sigh.... Religion to me is order. Is control. Is rigidity. Is right & wrong. Is black & white. Is system. Is structure. Is blindness. Is 'yes men'. Is Power. Is greed. Is control. Is control. Is control.
Religion is also community. Is security. Is safety. Is belonging. Is tribe. Is human. But above all it is prison. It is prison of the mind. Sometimes also prison of the body. And prison is man-made. Prison is society-made. Prison is human. And human beings seem to be drawn to systems of control and order. Always have. Maybe always will. Sigh. Sigh. Sigh...
