If a celebrity started praying to a sneaker or car tire, everyone else would be doing it too. Its downright crazy.
Seems to me the new age followers are the only ones thinking - everyone else is toeing the same line that has been taught for thousands of years. You aren't using your judgment - your basing it off of what you have been taught - from a religion that sees it as black and white.
I don't believe God to be black and white - its why I have an issue with most organized religions - if I happen to interpret a line from the bible differently than another I'm a heretic and unworthy of being in their presence. Because we know God said "Love thy neighbor - as long as they agree with you". I'm a firm believer in God will deal with each of us and our sins when we get to heaven - why do we have to put people through hell here on earth trying to do his job for him.
