From Sacred Space to Sub-Standard Stomping Ground
Religion is seen as a cultural vestibule by many of the older generation. This attitude allows community elites to exercise symbolic power that is fed on the preserve of cultural import. Those in charge manipulate, under the guise of cultural comportment, sacred spaces thus reducing them to sub-standard enclaves of inefficiency and and confusion. This trend must be reversed because religion is not a vehicle that one cruises in for temporal tutelage, but a path tread by the soul that can lead to eternal satisfaction.
