Mahatma Gandhi

Mohandas Gandhi, called Mahatma, was born today in 1869. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, he ”took for granted religious tolerance.” [1] I wonder what he would think if he were alive today? During his lifetime, he fought against intolerance. Therefore, one might conclude that he would criticize those religious fanatics who preach against other religions, and we would expect him to condemn those who think violence is the way to remove an opposing religion. Obviously, he would not abide with those who act brutally or hatefully against others. I can imagine he would view those  people – whether they call themselves Christians or Muslims — who bomb abortion clinics, hospitals, and office buildings (especially those that include day care centers) as insane.

Today I pray that the Divine Beings reduce the fearsome acts of those deluded and intolerable fanatics. May the Divine Ones lead us toward acceptance of other’s beliefs and to a time when we realize that we need a diverse community in order to become healthy people living good lives on a healthy planet.

I invite you to pray the same to whichever Deity you choose.
