  1. Michael Jensen Says:

    I cannot believe that the firstborn of Egypt, especially the younger ones and infants, were less innocent or worthy than the firstborn of Israel. Their death, at the hand of the god of Abraham, was a cosmic crime perpetrated by a tribal deity, whose pretense to be the universal God has led to immense violence.
    While I will respect the holiday out of respect for the Jewish people, as I respect the holidays of other Abrahamic sects out of respect for my friends who observe them, I take this occasion to denounce the deeds of this so-called god of the universe. I will worship tribal deities who do not make claims beyond their peoples. This is why I have been a Pagan most of my life, and will not hide nor apologise for my faith.
    Blessed Be,
    End of sermon.
