Relationships in a World of Individualism

  • rWorld

    The rWorld is about more than Dale Kuehne's book Sex and the iWorld.
    The rWorld is a New England based, non-profit (in formation), that is composed of a growing number of people and organizations from many faith and ideological backgrounds worldwide. We believe that much of the fulfillment for which women and men are looking can be found by enhancing the quality of our relationships. While the individual freedom we enjoy in the West is a gift, the love and intimacy for which humans yearn will not be found in self-serving materialism or hedonism, but in a variety of healthy relationships.

    In this blog I'm highlighting signposts of the world in which we presently reside as a means of helping promote a civil, and meaningful dialogue about what kind of world in which we wish to live. I am particularly interested in exploring how might we reconcile the individual good and the common good, and where reconciliation isn’t possible, which should take precedence and why.

One Response to “Love Hate Relationship”

    Love the pro-equal rights signs! The fact that the Madison pro rights crowd was the largest yet shows, once again, that hope for equal civil rights for gays lies with the younger generations! (I’m sorry to say that the two crowds, anti-gay rights and pro gay rights, were much closer in size in St Paul.)

    I truly believe that at some point the US Supreme Court will decide that gay marriage is a civil right based on separation of church and state, the anti-establishment clause and the equal protection clause. We cannot go on granting civil recognition to all of the marriages performed in one Church (Catholic, for example) and only some of the marriages performed in other Churches (UCC, for example). Regardless of what any one religious group or denomination believes about gay marriage, we can no longer let that view control our civil laws! Churches will always be free to allow or not allow gay marriage, but the time when the Church determines our civil laws cannot end soon enough. Equality under the law for gays and lesbians is a fight on the same level as equality for women and for people of color. It does not matter whether the majority of people are against gay rights for religious reasons or otherwise. The people on the NOM bus tour would have their religious views in control of our secular society. It’s shamefully anti-American.
