When I was in an interfaith seminary
I noticed three models
for understanding a faith community’s purpose
in a democratic and diverse society.
- Conservation of SelfRighteous Anger
To compete with,
and thereby degenerate the powers of,
sin and evil and ignorance
in a monoculturally untrustable
destined for just rewards
of hellfire and damnation
and untruthfully obscuring privileged
eco-political capitalist patriarchalism.
- Liberating from EgoCentered Fear
To rescue us individual sinners,
benighted Earth defilers,
from our capitalist-patriarchal
To redeem our hopelessly negative
deviant bad health choices,
left-brain dominantly encultured
despairing experience of eternal apartheid,
unease and disease.
- Empowering win-ego/win-eco CoMessiahs
To cooperatively enlighten each Other
to grow in compassion
and non-violent integrity of communication,
internal communion experience
and external harmonic community
for active eco-political hope,
cooperatively empowering faith,
deep learning multicultural love.
When I went to Public Administration graduate school,
noticed three models
for understanding a democratic constitution’s purpose
in a healthy society.
- Red Anger Management
- Blue/Green Repurposing Win/Lose Fears
- Ultra NonViolet
BiCameral CoOperative Empowerment
