Quote of the Damn Day: Jeff Buckley

Why do they always show Christ up there bleeding and dying on the cross? We don't remember John Lennon lying there with a bullet hole in his head. I'm against the arbitrary organization of 'God' as a concept. We should all experience it all individually and purely. I don't agree with the separation of God and the body, I don't believe that we aren't a part of 'it', I don't agree that it's a man. In most religions there's no place for women. There aren't any women in the Holy Trinity and I need that. I love women, I came from a woman.

[This one is for Ms. Moon, my fucking idol.

And I still miss Jeff.]

It is our individual understanding of God. I see a Higher Power in all that surrounds me. Alternative thinking to the norm is good.
