TEXAS FAITH 92: What is America’s common creed and how do we forge it together?

0

Dallas Morning News,

Each week we will post a question to a panel of about two dozen clergy, laity and theologians, all of whom are based in Texas or are from Texas. They will chime in with their responses to the question of the week. And you, readers, will be able to respond to their answers through the comment box.


Throughout his inaugural address today, President Barack Obama emphasized our common creed, we the people and taking action together. In short, his speech was heavy on the communal aspects of our work as Americans.
His address contrasts with the individualism you often hear from Republicans. They regularly emphasize enterprenurialism, personal initiative and the power of local communities.
So, here is the question I would like you to consider:
What is America’s common creed and how do we forge it together?

NITYANANDA CHANDRA DAS, minister of ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness), Dallas 

The only common creed is that we all have the same father. He is known by different names such as Krishna, Jehovah, Allah. Unity on any other basis is fleeting and unreal.
