How do you spend your Sundays? Could the Church change its image among young skeptics by using more innovative Web 2.0 technologies?
Kennedy interviewed high-profile church members in an exploration of personal journeys and interpretations versus dogmatic and impersonal mandates sent from above.
Kennedy shares her experiences, replete with tales of struggle, spirituality, denial and much more- The Commonwealth Club of California
Activist Kerry Kennedy is an advocate for the protection and promotion of fair and equal justice, the defense of basic human rights, and the rule of law worldwide.
The author of Speak Truth to Power, which features interviews with international human rights activists, Kennedy has led over 40 human rights delegations to over 30 countries, all with the goal of preserving the rule of law and human dignity. Currently, she is chair of the Amnesty International Leadership Council, and is a judge for the Reebok Human Rights Award.
Why are we asking dumb people that haven't had a real job experience in their lives for any answers? Rich lady that is exploiting poor people is "fighting" for their rights and middle class is paying for all of that. Real life Cinderella story.
She speaks as if she really is royalty. 45 minutes in, she admits she has no time and little interest in working out what it is that she really believes in. Later, she admits she's really only Catholic because of her family. "Once a Catholic, always a Catholic." Then she has the pretension to say "Well, if my children run for office, we'll all be blessed." Sarah Palin is the tip of the iceberg on ignorant people in positions of power.
The primary purpose of the Abrahamic religions is to maintain the male as the dominator, hence the male deity "God", and don't get me wrong God is a He, not a She (If you want a female deity then read the Tao Te Ching).
That Kerry Kennedy's daughter was able to ask why "the Father and Son" was not "the Mother and daughter" is a testament to secular education and the proliferation of capitalism in America.
I was once in a third world country where a poor man was reading his Koran but as soon as he saw me standing and looking at his wares for sale, he put his Holy Book down and proferred a sale. The correlation between poverty and religious fundamentalism is undeniable.
