And Now, A Word From One Of The Grownups...

High Kickin' Donkey

Listen, Humanity...

A human being is part of the whole called by us 'universe', a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self [ego].

We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive."
~ Albert Einstein, 1954.

Thank you, Mister Einstein.

Thank You Albert.

Was Jesus Gay?

High Kickin' Donkey

Well, there was that night...

Pat Condel asks that question which is so troubling for many Christians. And then answers in the affirmative, darn it. Pat seems intent on destroying so many sacred cows which happen to be standing around. And he does it with such relish. And enormous wit and intelligence. It's for sure that he wastes no love on the "Holier than Thou" crowd. But then who among us does, really?

Condel breathes fresh air into just about everything he approaches, whether the subject is Religion or Afganistan.
