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.

Per haps
We the people believe in one god at a time...

Almighty sounds pretty definitive/paternalistic/masculine

Are you sure the author's name isn't Stanford Eneything?

Stanford, the Nice Creed begs to be put on video....PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. So we can all appreciate it's "niceness."

One question:
Is the Nice Creed delivered standing, sitting, or in a yoga position? Or just with one leg slung over the arm of a comfy chair?

Oh, Stanford would object to the entire concept of "lord", what with all those authoritarian claims.

"We the people believe in one really nice guy who offers great advice, Jesus Christ, the only love child of god, parented before all ages..."

Jesus, the I'm ok your ok god?
I don't think that describes Jesus. My sincere feedback would be to be accurate in your statements and either remove Jesus or get him right. He corrected the Jews for not being correct enough. He was hardly a hippie. He was consider orthodox to the orthodoxy. So please strive for accuracy.
