Exerpt from The Spell of Religion

It is with the highest vibration of Love that I submit this work for your consideration. Once we can clearly see how misguided the notion is that our own personal beliefs give us permission to persecute others because we believe God condemns their actions, the sooner we will be able to look at everyone through more compassionate eyes and see their true souls--not the false image that religious dogma has perpetuated.

As has been vividly demonstrated over the centuries, souls who come into this world with same gender attraction have been persecuted, shunned, murdered and driven to suicide all in the name of God. The time has come to STOP the violence against our gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender brothers and sisters. The time has come to accept them in all their goodness and beauty as children of God. They are not different from us, they are part of us. Those who can make this shift in consciousness will be richer and more fulfilled because of it--I promise.

Truth has a path in the here and now and can only be arrived at with an open heart and mind. To be taught that we may never in this life completely understand the reason for our obedience to certain rules, and that it will all be revealed in the next, keeps us from following a logical path to truth and God. God is not illogical nor does He expect us to be. I love the basic premise for the book, A Course in Miracles, which is this; Nothing real can be threatened, Nothing unreal exists - Herein lies the peace of God.
