    1. Well that makes me wonder! If you listen to mark he still lives in the USA military and feels he is part of the military. After all he says he is a war hawk.

  1. It’s mid-Saturday and I just got to listen to your Friday broadcast. Wow, powerful, almost like a summary of all the current dilemmas in the nation. Ya sure did bear ye soul there, Henry. God, Truth, Christ, Justice, not easy subjects to tackle. I welcome such discussion. Maybe we’re all getting clear on the difference between religion and spirituality, or between religion and morality/ethics. Religion being man-made, greed-based and serving up fear and punishment while stealing from the people. I did hear you use the words: “In my soul,” and that gave me something to build on, having the thought that the soul houses the individual and his or her consciousness and conscience.

    And when you explained how all the tribes you came across claimed ascendancy over everybody else, all believing their’s was numero uno, well, I had that exact same experience. Different tribes told me they were the center of the universe and creation began with them. I’ve heard it expressed from Australian Aborigines, Native Americans, and certain Alaskan and Pacific-Island groups. Crazy.

    The best thing you said was something like: “I can live along side anybody,” of course adding, “As long as we have our Bill of Rights and Common Law.” That stops any racism or supremacy in its tracks.

    And on the churches… If there actually is any true church it’s in the heart, or in the woods, or in the eyes of those we love. Today, everything good is being perverted, everything beautifully simple, complicated. It falls on us to do what we can to not get contaminated. Certainly your broadcast is a big help with that, a decontamination of sorts, over the airwaves. Ha! Anyway, thank you much, Henry. I’ve too much to say, especially about Christ, but will stop here; philosophy has something of an infinite nature to it.
