This is related to what I think was my very first post on A|N, not quite two years ago, Andrea. There has been a lot of great art, architecture and music dedicated to belief in a sky daddy, much of it intensely beautiful. I'd rather not throw the baby out with the bathwater, but as someone else observed here some time back, the churches particularly displace a significant amount of land which could be far better used.
Just what we actually DO about this conflict, I do not know ... but I'm open to suggestions!
I really see no difference between churches, cathedrals, temples or pyramids. Whether tomb or altar. It's still just an elegant structure. As a youngster I was dragged into one on a regular basis. It was saint John's in Susquehanna, Pa. Anyone traveling through the north east of Pa. should stop and have a look. You would not believe a European gothic style would exist in such an unassuming area.
I love the architecture, but it's scary to see them in use. I guess they still love the sky daddy.
