Changing your beliefs about God and humanity

Here's a Fox News video about the crazy people from Westboro Baptist Church, about whom we've written a few times, including here and here.

This is what happens when you take the Old Testament literally. I agree with Sean Hannity here when he calls Shirley Phelps Roper "mean, sick and cruel." But as this interview deteriorates, he tries to engage her in a discussion while coming from within the same outdated, misguided paradigm, asking what her sins are and saying that he, not her, worships the true God, "the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob." It's just more of the same ol' same ol'"My God is bigger than your God!"

As I said here last month in A Conversation with God: Enlarging Your Beliefs at the beginning of the month, it's time for a major paradigm shift in our spiritual and religious lives, in the way we think of God and of each other.

Or else, it's going to get worse.
