Distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada today, stressed that as Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Jews, Baha'is, Confucians, Daos, Shinto, Jains, Zoroastrians and others had freedom of their belief systems and were respected for their respective choices, and so should be the atheists. We all should be more inclusive if we wanted to create harmony in the world.
Who were we as human beings to judge publicly that other humans' beliefs different than us were wrong? Zed asked.
Take a step forward in inclusiveness, Rajan Zed urged the Town of Greece Board.
A policy unanimously adopted at the meeting of the Town Board of Town of Greece on August 19, states: "The Town Board of the Town of Greece makes it a policy to invite members of the clergy or religious representatives in the Town of Greece to voluntarily offer an invocation before the beginning of its meetings, for the benefit and blessing of the Town Board."
William D. Reilich and Cheryl Rozzi are Supervisor and Clerk respectively of Town of Greece, long the home of the Seneca Indians, which was established by legislature in 1822. Bordering Lake Ontario, it is rated as one of the safest cities in America; and "deer, waterfowl and small game are hunted in the town."
