Religious Experience


….a poem from Cashel: Tales of the Emigres

Religious law‘s preached from holy tables,

By imam, priest, as custom does provide;

But what‘s God’s; and what‘s from Aesop’s fables;

An educated conscience should decide.

Self-serving judges of God’s fine judgement

Can’t limit human love; nor speak for God.

Their vanity gives Omnipotence amusement;

They neither rule His head nor hold His rod.

Believing what you will – embrace belief.

Take mythology for historic truth;

Artistically carve it in bass-relief;

Believe it without scientific proof.

Blind faith can’t guarantee eternity;

Blind ignorance endures eternally.
