Whenever I teach a course on the “Wisdom Traditions” (World Religions) I’m reminded of the ways We Pollute Our Gods and, it must be said, Our Gods Pollute Us.
The Story of Religion is a Human Story and the story has a profound impact on the environment. Sometimes, it’s graphic:
Take Ganga Ji. . .the Dirty Goddess of the Ganges
There are some working to clean it up. What they may need is a John Muir of India reminding them of the Real Divinity of a River (hint: it’s not about the Super-Natural)
Another title for this: To Assassinate God. . .or maybe, When Your Goddess Commits Sewer-cide
