    Stretching your argument to absurdity and projecting absurdity onto others isnt a great way to engage in real dialogue.
    How was I stretching the argument to absurdity?

    FTR, I'm an advocate on shedding the god of thy parentage and childhood churchage and searching on one's own. Religion is a big mess of people searching. For Christianity specifically, that's why the bible has so many different genres and authors compiled into one place--there are many kinds of searches that resonate with different people at different stages and places in life.

    The mandates of religion come from a fear-based worldview, but the most scared people are drowning out the ones who are peacefully content. There's no rule that says you can't be an informed, atheist-friendly, agnostic-leaning, faith-choosing individual who disagrees with a lot of the church.

    There are millions of people like that who choose to live in their idea of faith. They just don't craft Rick Perry campaign messages because they're not fear-based.

    The Father Fixation

    There is almost no doubt you and I have fathers.

    And it is extremely unlikely that the universe has a father. Yet we continually refer to God the father, the creator of the universe.

    They tell me that just as a watch has a watch maker, the universe has a universe maker. And so just as we have fathers, the universe has a father too.

    And let's face reality, we won't elect anyone to the Presidency unless they are a father.

    So it is plain we have a father fixation, just as Carl Jung had a father fixation.

    And guess what - Carl is our guru.

    You're right. We do have a Father Fixation. But isn't it usually between us and the external world this it manifests itself? Like we want Our Father to protect us. Protect us from the unknown Universe. Protect us from hostile countries. Protect us from the boogeyman.


    Perhaps we have a Mother Fixation too. Maybe it just doesn't show. Maybe we carry Mother inside us, to protect us there.

    Father = extraversion
    Mother = introversion.

    Yes, Mary is the Mother of God. Mary intercedes with her Son for us.

    So Mary, the Mother of God, is described as our Mother too.

    And in Mary's relationship with her Son, Mary is described as Co-Redemptrix.

    And being the Mother of God, Mary is the Immaculate Conception. Yes, it is Mary, not Jesus, who is the Immaculate Conception.

    So God is the creator of the universe and Mary is His Mother.
