The Nice Creed
Stanford Nutting, ultra-liberal ex-seminarian is re-writing the Nicene Creed for us. He would like to know what you think of what's he's come up with so far.
We, the people, believe in one god, the non-judgmental parental figure almighty, maker of no heaven, no hell below us, above us only sky, of all things seen and unseen in the spirit of Vatican II.
We, the people, believe in one lord, Jesus Christ, the “I’m OK, You’re OK” of god, eternally accepted by the non-judgmental parental figure, god from god, light from light, fill-in-the-blank from fill-in-the-blank. Accepted, not rejected; of one in being with all deities. Through him or her all things were made OK. You’re OK, too.
For us human beings and for our acceptance he or she came down from no-heaven. By the power of sexual urges, which are always a blessing in any form, he or she was born of the Virgin Mary, whose right to choose we respect, and became a human being.
Stanford is waiting for the Holy Spirit and / or Gaia the Earth Mother to inspire him to write more.
