Favorite Quotes: Wind and Rain

“If you take a copy of the Christian Bible and put it out in the wind and the rain, soon the paper on which the words are printed will disintegrate and the words will be gone. Our bible is the wind and the rain.”

-Anonymous Native American Woman

One of America's saddest points in its history was the treatment of Native Americans. Not only did Europeans take their land, but they destroyed their life and culture. The Abrahamic religions were never too big on the idea of co-existence and they had the nerve to try to replace the religions of Native America with their own. While I don't claim to be an expert on Native American religions, I know most had a theme with individual spirituality and a focus on Earth and nature. That's why I like this quote so much is that before all religions, there was just the wind and the rain.
