I am completely addicted to True Blood. If you have not watched or do not know about the show, it’s about vampires and other supernatural creatures living among humans. Weird, I know. You might ask yourself what does this have to do with Faith and Religion? Well, in the show there is a church that is against supernatural creatures and wants to destroy them. They’re leading point in the discussion is that Jesus and God were the only ones who could have special abilities like rising from the dead.
The main characters point (and mine too) is God and Jesus taught us to love everyone even our enemies. Also to forgive others as we ask for forgiveness. While I know True Blood is a make believe situation, I think we can learn something from it. Just because someone is of a different race, religion, gender, whatever, they are not evil. We should celebrate those differences because that is what makes us unique. We should also look past the differences and look at the similarities. You might find a new friend that can change your life.
