Religious Texts from Many Faiths

Let's see--I haven't done a post on religion yet. Here's a site that links you to the religious and sacred texts of many faiths. If you are interested in sampling the writings from faiths around the world, here's your chance.

Here's another, more extensive site: Internet Sacred Texts Archive There's a lot of reading here.


On a further religion note, here is a link to an article at The Heritage Foundation entitled "Why American Needs Religion" by William E. Simon, Jr. It will give you some things to think about.

I, of course, have my own religious beliefs. While I don't plan to discuss them all that much here, on my "secular" blog, I do have another blog that contains a lot of my religious views. If you are interested in perusing it, it's called "By Study and Also By Faith" and is located here.

I wonder what kind of "religion" America really needs?
Is it the self-serving entirely provincial archaic tribal nationalism that now holds sway?

We live in an age when all the Sacred Scriptures of the entire Great Tradition of Humankind are freely available on the internet.
And in a time of quantum reality in which all cultures & religions quite literally share the same space.
Who then owns The Holy Brightness?
And as such ALL of it our common inheritance and we obliged to put ourselves to school to de-provincialise our minds and find out what is True and Real with a capital T & R.
Having said that please check out these related references on Real God.

Re the right wing think tank you mentioned in your post.
Isnt it in effect a full on champion of the Pentagon death machine, the "values" of which permeate every aspect of USA "culture". What Eisenhower called the military-industrial complex.
I think this essay provides a very convincing critique of the said institution.
