NYC mosque near Ground Zero? Obama cites Golden Rule

Here at the beginning of Ramadan 2010, President Obama has handily delivered a speech concerning religion and the gracious plenty of it we've always had available here in America.

Lots of judging of others, regretfully, yet lots of houses of worship have been liberally sprinkled about the place since our nation's toddling days and before.

And you know that I wholeheartedly agree that 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you' is a grand concept that would work in the world's favor if only humankind would seriously follow it (faith is contagious!), for the endless cycle of revenge the globe is now entranced by and spiraling into would switch directions in a flash if everyone caught that particular drift on a core level and became inspired to seek life, not death.

To paraphrase Gandhi, There is no path to peace. Peace is the path.

If any of this irks you on some level, then you may as well keep reading. Because nothing I can say now will dissuade you from irksomeness, plus, you're almost done...

This next bit rhymes. And as such, it runs the risk of permanently offending both readers of this blog so I'll provide only a link to a Presidential verse in case you're feeling somewhat daring this evening...and yes, I know that political cat limericks may be ruffling to one's political sensibilities especially for those who wear their allegiances on their sleeves.

The Golden Rule is key.
It is worth considering first how one wants others to treat them.
