i have been criticised for my position regarding ideas about conscience and obligation.
the reason for this criticism is clear.
my critics want me to be seen as selfish.
there is nothing further from the truth.
it is my desire for people to be comfortable enough with themselves to be able to stay out of other people`s shit.
it is the moral position of the church that we should be concerned with the behaviours and values of others and this gives people the authority to be judgemental.
this is at direct odds with what i believe enlightenment to be.
i would consider the churches position to be one of encumberment.
heaping burdens on people that they can`t possibly carry.
