I have often written here and commented on other blogs that I would like to write a post that highlights my take on religion. Suffice to say that I am challenged by the bigger questions in life, the type of questions that have no answers, but can drive a person batty if they spend too much time thinking about them. Does religion hold the answers? Certainly some sort faith or spirituality is where peace lies of not the answers. I have always been somewhat uncomfortable with some of hypocrisy I perceive in the organized faiths, and I have yet to be able to put together a coherent philosophy of my own that would offer any comfort.
I heard this song on the radio the other day, and it resonated with me. I was not surprised that when I went looking for it online that I discovered some push back from those that profess to be more righteous than the rest of us. I have seen and written about this before, and it is part of what I have always found so troubling with religion. Regardless the idea of the song, a less than perfect man looking for some simple answers is something I can relate too. It is very country, but I hope you like it.
