Muso, actor, old-time-star, boozer, gambler, womanizer, mafioso, good-time-guy, whatever…Frank Sinatra is like the ultimate Sagittarius dude (Sagittarius males have permanent Dude Status remember – they’re set to perma-dude) and the Patron Saint of Pantheism. A.k.a. my religion.
Some random thoughts from Saint Sagg:
I’m not one of those complicated mixed up cats – I’m not looking for the secret to life. I just go from day to day, taking what comes.
There are things about organized religion which I resent. Christ is revered as the Prince of Peace, but more blood has been shed in His name than any other figure in history. You show me one step forward in the name of religion and I’ll show you a hundred retrogressions. Remember, they were men of God who destroyed the educational treasures at Alexandria, who perpetrated the Inquisition in Spain, who burned the witches at Salem. Over 25,000 organized religions flourish on this planet, but the followers of each think all the others are miserably misguided and probably evil as well.
I’m for decency — period. I’m for anything and everything that bodes love and consideration for my fellow man. But when lip service to some mysterious deity permits bestiality on Wednesday and absolution on Sunday — cash me out.
I believe in you and me. I’m like Albert Schweitzer and Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein in that I have a respect for life — in any form. I believe in nature, in the birds, the sea, the sky, in everything I can see or that there is real evidence for. If these things are what you mean by God, then I believe in God. But I don’t believe in a personal God to whom I look for comfort or for a natural on the next roll of the dice.”
If you don’t know the guy on the other side of the world, love him anyway because he’s just like you. He has the same dreams, the same hopes and fears. It’s one world, pal. We’re all neighbors.
To be fair, i am also totally feeling his Moon in Pisces in there as well. Thoughts?
