Celebrating Every Person

It is very challenging to keep government and faith in proper relationship with each other. Our Constitution mandates separation, while our leaders present a tapestry of faiths – subtle perhaps like Lutheran versus Methodist – or vivid like Christian, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu, Deist and so on.

Independent of how one may feel about gay rights issues, the core message of Steve Simon’s statement is one of understanding and compassion as mandatory for our healthy society, and I wholeheartedly agree. For personal reasons he chose to reference his own faith, while delivering this truly universal message:

There is a place – and arguably a “purpose” – for everyone in our society that transcends any one belief system that may try to describe it. This to me is what a celebrating wonderful life is all about.
