Using the term “god” always presents problems and I wish there was another term for a model of decency that hadn’t been wrecked. I just mentioned Ramadan in the Lebanese grocery today and all the non-Muslims were on me about my “Christian disrespect” for noticing both that strawberries were on sale and the place was half full at noon.The assumptions around religion even get me going. When I was a kid, members of the Hell’s Angles motorcycle used to physically attack us when we were protesting the Vietnam war for being Goddless Commies. As did members of the “respectable” white churches over our complaints directed at racial discrimination practice by “nice” restaurants.
Growing up as a Unitarian I wonder if my concept of god is properly theorized?
