Sacred Text Book Study

As our world view increases we are often exposed to different belief systems.  Instead of having someone else tell us what their holy books say, we should read them for ourselves to better understand the points of view of others, rather they are of a completely different culture or just a different perspective of our own.  This is a pure study of the sacred texts themselves without the interference of religious ideas.  DISRESPECT AND DOGMA WILL NOT BE TOLERATED!  In order to best facilitate discussion several FaceBook groups have been started, each one focusing on a specific text.  Send a message for links to the other groups.  To find any sacred text on-line Taunta Beanie recommends http://www.sacred-texts.com/ Click on the links to go directly to the sites.
