And in the Big News today from a Faith Perspective, I like to go for a dip in the sea, which is very spiritual. However I don’t go for a dip when water companies dump raw sewage, because that is not very spiritual. Our water is a “common grace” (I learned that in theology class). That’s why we currently have a statue of Mary floating down the River Wye on top of all the raw sewage.
The water companies have done such a fantastic job increasing the untreated sewage that they’ve even given themselves extra bonuses as a reward.
Isn’t Hinduism brilliant, like Rishi Sunak. The mayor of London is a Muslim. This could be because we’re all so wonderfully tolerant, or because nobody cares.
But take care. People who have a faith take it very seriously. All the best PMs were deeply faithful until they woke up. That’s why I don’t trust Liz Truss. She doesn’t believe in anything.
Some have celebrated the attack on Salman Rushdie. This, and the death threats that his supporters have received, inevitably feeds into stereotypes of Muslims. But wait, Mohammed never, ever, ever, supported violence, and we shouldn’t too. We must support freedom of speech.
And in the Big News today from a Faith Perspective, Happy 75th Anniversary of Indian and Pakistani independence. They had to be partitioned because of some reason that escapes me for the moment. Sikhs were split from many holy places, oh and about a million died.
