#makefriends initiative

This is very encouraging to see a joint statement. I studied world religions as part of my teaching degree (not out of choice, wrong A levels..), in fact all of my fellow students except one were the same. It led to very interesting conversations. My dissertation was about the impact of American missionary groups in Latin America. I spent a summer going to / from a Latin American library in London.

Hinduism is tempting. Bhagavad Gita is beautiful and they’re nice to animals, but the caste system and traditional views of women.

I didn’t go to local mosques but followed various Islamic family traditions with my ex’s family and had interesting brief conversations with my ex mother-in-law.
