Marianne Williamson on Principles & Values

 

 


Separation of church and state supports spiritual flowering

Separating the State from the undue influence of religious institutions was in no way meant by our Founders to be an impediment to the search for higher truth, within the individual or within society. They embraced the Creator while refusing to pay homage to specific dogmas claiming to monopolize religious truth. That stance was in support, not rejection, of the true religious experience. The separation of Church and State was intended to SUPPORT our spiritual flowering by guaranteeing its freedom.

Spiritually, to many of us, is as important to the soul as oxygen to the body. Without it, the world can make sense to the mind, but it can never make sense with the heart. But the spirit is an internal phenomenon, and civilization has always suffered when any particular dogma or doctrine has sought to impose itself upon the peoples of the world.

Politics steeped in religion is divisive

She's an evangelical, to be sure, but also an unembarrassed political liberal whose latest book, The Healing of America, warns that spirituality can unite the country while politics steeped in religion can only divide it.
