    means it's supposed to be an organization for everyone, unless you are admitting that "God" is exclusionary.

    •  It is for everyone but unfortunately the church (0+ / 0-)

      and God are not very democratic.

      We may be able to change that some day but it will take time.

      •  How do you change "God's" lack of sense (0+ / 0-)

        of the concept of democracy.  You are correct on this. The god represented in the Hebrew and Christian texts is not democractic in his/her described interactions with mankind.  It took moral humans to come up with the concept and practice of democracy and human rights.  So where does that leave these gods?  Who is more moral?

    •  Many of us have our own God/Gods. (2+ / 0-)

      Based on own belief, we can pick our own. No God, or certainly not a Pope can satisfy every person on earth.

        You are correct that every person who believes in a god has their own idea of what this god is like.  However, that does put "God" or gods in the realm of pure imagination, now doesn't it?
