Gandalf Stormcrow

A bringer of news. A wielder of truth. If you wish to remain in the shadow of ignorance or delusion, this is not the place for you. Go back to the shadow! Those thoughts will not avail you here! YOU SHALL NOT PASS!

Before you speak to me about your religion…

“Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people.  Before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children [especially those with whom you differ or disagree philosophically].  Before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors.  In the end, I’m not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as I am in how you choose to live and give.”  Corey Booker, Mayor, Newark, New Jersey

** Note: I’m not certain whether Mayor Booker was referring to a specific religion or not, but in my mind this rule applies to ALL religions—but most especially to Christianity and Islam, in ALL of their forms and iterations.
