Mini rant on : spirituali/religious

I've heard it so often..."I'm not religious but I am spiritual."

What the heck does that MEAN?

I don't believe in God, but I like trees?

I believe in God, but don't go to church?

I'm not like "those other people"?

I'm cooler than religious people?

I'm lazy?

What do people think religious people ARE?

Can they be "religious but not spiritual?"

This makes me nuts. Chime in.

today's poem

I was re-reading some Robert Frost today, and came upon this poem. It rings true.


Some say the world will end in fire;
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

I Confess

OK I am a liberal -- a progressive, even. But I am not thrilled with the Obama administration. I want to be. I voted for him. I know he inherited a mess. I know it will take time. But too much time is being wasted.

I want more press conferences. I want him to have better advisors. I want to stop blaming Republicans for Obama's shortcomings. The Republicans have MANY things that they need to change. But there better be a shakeout of the Cabinet, and a re-emergence of leadership by Obama, soon.

I hate even SAYING that I am disappointed. I hate even THINKING it.
