Why can't it always be this easy?

Friend sent this to me yesterday, and it was such a coincidence it was right after that burial question further down the page. I'll warn you up front before you watch it, you probably want a tissue on hand, but aside from that, what struck me is how effortlessly it transitions. The poet teaches in a Hebrew private school, but he isn't just discussing their religion - he has no problem mentioning other faiths, Norse and Egyptian in this case - and nobody protests, nobody tries to fire him, it's not a big deal. Why can't more people just accept the existence of other beliefs and acknowledge them so effortlessly without having to make an issue of it?

  • I have found that many people are like this.....not to worry....the loud non-accepting people are actually a small minority.....they are just loud and get a lot of attention.
