Campaigning Religions

Campaigning Religions

As the intelligence of the human race evolves
all the competing – campaigning as it were -
religions will be viewed differently.

One will see they are all basically contestants
in a beauty pageant

and the religion that can make your own
beauty most known will win your heart.

            On the Eve of one of the most widely celebrated religious holidays, people worldwide are preparing ways to present their own beauty: through loving gestures, thoughtful gifts, formal outfits, commutes back home, elaborate meals, etc. If a religion lines up with your worldview and the pleasurable ways you choose to interact with the world, if it illuminates sacred truths and glorious passions, if it helps you to love more fully and exalt your own worth, let it win your heart.

Do You Hear What I Hear? (1963), Bing Crosby
