So what is a pan-compassionist freethinker?!!
It’s what I seem to be at the moment, and it’s been holding for a few months…. It’s a miracle! No telling where I’ll end up, but it’s a good feeling to be able to maybe put a foot down somewhere — for the time being!
Pan-compassionist: means I would like to be compassionate toward everything. Tall order, guaranteeing falling short, but good to have an aim!!!
Freethinker: means I stay open to revising my views. My allegiances are to compassion and to fact, insofar as we can know them. I respect the traditions I come out of — Christianity, social democracy, etc — and I evaluate them by compassion and fact, to the best of my understanding.
This blog is for thinking about what this means in my life & thinking (besides making me — and probably everybody! — a category of one!), and for collecting and celebrating my heroes and heroines (continually added to here), It’s for conversation, if anyone wants to converse : ) !!! Enjoy!!
