"How wonderful the world might be if only we gave to each other all the
love we claim to give to God, a thought which has been expressed time and
time again, yet it still manages to resound with a poignance that is almost
painful. Such a world can be ours, sisters and brothers. Let us work
together to achieve it."

I here will not shoot the messenger and his intended underlying meaning (that being from a substantiveless and flawed foundation), but rather let the message stand alone.

    This guy appears to claim to be a Humanist and a Rationalist. If that is so then Jesus is a humanist and a rationalist for he said, "If you love me then love one another." and "Whatever you do for the least of these (children) you do for me." Humanists are often depicted as contrary or opposed to relgion or Christianity. Hey brothers and sisters lets all come together in the New Year and express and act upon our commonality!

    This is the goal. Unfortunately human nature too often gets in the way.

    I do believe he meant to give love to each other instead of God. True love is not possible with out God. That would only be tolerance. Understanding your fellow man and having love for your fellow man is made possible through God. He appears jealous of God.
