Tolerance
According To Yogi Bhajan

"Every day of your life your tolerance should be
ready to cope with your circumstances." -- Yogi Bhajan

"Tolerance is the keystone of the coming Age.
When you're tolerant, you will not be impatient.
Presents and money do not assure anyone of
your love for them, but if you show simple, practical
patience in life, it is a very strong assurance. That is the
fundamental change of the coming Age." -- Yogi Bhajan

"By going to a church one does not become Christian, by going to a temple one
does not become spiritual, but by cleaning his own temple, his own self, one does
become what one wants to be. You have to work on yourself. Self shall be tested.
You have to stand for your own self in the Age of Truth. You have to understand how to
love; you have to understand how to tolerate the other man's point of view." -- Yogi Bhajan

in God We Trust?

Tolerance: The ability or willingness to allow the existence of
opinions or behavior that one does not necessarily agree with.

When I was given a DVD of a protest rally in the small town of King, near where I live, I was shocked by the sight of five thousand people waving Christian Flags and cheering one of the speakers when he said that everyone there should "encourage" those who weren't Christian in the area to move somewhere else.

My first reaction was anger and I told my wife, Susan, we were going to put our house up for sale the next day and move somewhere more tolerant. But the next morning, I decided that I would do something else first. I took my video camera down to the Veteran's Memorial in King's Public Park and started interviewing people.

I learned that the rally had been ignited by a returning Afghanistan Veteran who threatened to sue the town if they didn't remove the Christian Flag from the public Veteran's Memorial.

I was surprised that most residents believed that Separation of Church and State is a myth and that the Founders intended this to be an officially Christian Nation. They quoted so many historical facts from a man named David Barton to back up their claims, that I really wondered if what I'd taken for granted might be incorrect.

And thus began a year-and-a-half journey in my spare time to find out the truth and source of the idea of Separation of Church and State, as well as interviews with half a dozen different religious groups in the area about what and why they believed what they do. The story quickly became as much about what we believe about God as what we believe about the Founders of the United States -- and how we evaluate truth itself.

Although I started the project out of anger, I ended up truly liking the people I interviewed on all sides of the issue and it helped to diffuse my own negative emotions to the point where I felt a responsibility to honestly represent the viewpoints of even those I disagreed with the most. To that end, I have not done any narration, but have simply let the people themselves give their opinions in their own words. I will leave it up to you to decide who you agree with.

This was just me with a camera on my own, so it is definitely not a professionally produced documentary, but I hope some will find it as interesting a subject and as much an education as I did in making it. -- Scott Burdick

 

 

"You have to work on yourself. Self shall be tested. You have to stand for your
own self in the Age of Truth. You have to understand how to love; you have
to understand how to tolerate the other man's point of view." -- Yogi Bhajan

"Be competent. Do not show that you are scared. Do not show you are irrational.
Over and above that, never ever let anyone know that you are not willing to listen.
Listen patiently, reply promptly, answer effectively and be in command. That is the
price of living. And the best thing is, speak moderately, politely." -- Yogi Bhajan

"Are there even occasional conversations between white eyes
and colored eyes regarding the issues of diversity and racism and
their impact and complexities within our American communities today?
Issues to do with diversity are not going to go away just because we
deny that they exist, or because they cause us discomfort to discuss.
We must promote pluralism as did Guru Nanak throughout his ministry."

"What happens when governments get involved with religion?
In the country of Malaysia, it is against the law to convert from
Islam to another religion. And in the earlier days of Christianity, it
was against the law to be anything but a Christian." -- Hari Singh Bird
