Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.

Speaking of Religious Freedom

This makes for some interesting reading.

When Polish student Michael Gromek, 19, went to America on a student exchange, he found himself trapped in a host family of Christian fundamentalists. What followed was a six-month hell of dawn church visits and sex education talks as his new family tried to banish the devil from his soul. Here's his story. . . .

Dear Michael, I understand your disappointment and even that of your first hosts. In their zeal, I believe they forgot the first article of Christianity - which is to show their unconditional love for you. Such a love would accept you as you are, not try to change you into what they wish you were. In that vain of acceptance, perhaps you might appreciate something in them and perhaps not. But trying to mold you into their plans was heartless and naive - and shows spiritual immaturity and zealousness on their part. I am deeply sorry to hear of your experience.
