We in Humanity’s Team feel the time to take a stand has come; it is time to end the violence in the name of God
. We ask each of you and the whole of humanity to take a stand with us, people of every faith tradition including Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews and those who are agnostic or atheist.
We are not powerless.
We are powerful beyond measure, but we must join together with a common message. Our message: God is Love and a God of Love does not support hatred, revenge or violence.
We must release these self-destructive behaviors.
We support the best in our culture
-- that which is Life Enhancing, Life Supporting and Life Sustaining. We must focus on nurturing Life, not destroying Life.
Sacred texts such as the Qur’an, the Bible, the Torah, the Psalms, the New Testament, the Upanishads and others, must not be interpreted as supporting violence against life. We must draw a line and say “no.”
The violence we are seeing in the name of God is unacceptable. This is not who we choose to be, neither individually nor as a society.
Let’s share these truths in our churches, our mosques, our temples and our homes. It is time we come together in the Divine to support health and well-being for all humanity and life on earth.
If you are open, we invite you to join us during our weekly global conference calls, Conscious Business Initiatives, Community Circle, prayer calls (listed with our weekly global conference calls), service projects and on our Facebook page
TAKE THE PLEDGE
1) I will not engage in violence in the name of God.
2) I support the best in our culture, that which is Life Enhancing, Life Supporting and Life Sustaining
3) I will share these messages in my home, my place of worship if I have one, and in the world.
