Perhaps SOF should look long and hard about the whole idea of a religious leader who puts his or her time into condemning the beliefs of others. I cannot conceive of an in-the-flesh Jesus or a Tich Nhat Hanh, or a Jiddu Krishnamurti, or a Mohandas Ghandi, or Siddhārtha Gautama, prefacing a talk on peace and compassion with the statement, "First I must explain that I believe that you are a sinner..." Not being a scholar, this is the kind of test I have at my disposal when listening to your program. Beyond this, I highly recommend familiarity with Helen Schucman's writing about "forgiveness to destroy." This works for me, but it is an acquired taste.
