Failure of Culture—James. W. Prescott

 VIOLENCE: THE Failure of Culture

James W. Prescott, Ph.D.

The failure of Women to become Nurturing Mothers is the failure of Culture. One cannot Nurture or Love if they have not been nurtured or loved. One cannot give to someone else what he or she does not possess. Nurturing and Love are learned behaviors not to be found in our genes. There are no genes for love or violence—they are learned behaviors. This learning process begins with MOTHER in the intimacy of breastfeeding bonding, which contains all the elements of nurturing and love—from the micro molecular biochemistry of breast milk to the macro chemistry of the sensory environment of touch, movement, taste, and smell of the body of MOTHER-- all that is crucial for the development of the bran gestalt called LOVE where the Whole is greater than the sum of its Parts.

RELIGION, VIOLENCE and the NETWORK OF SPIRITUAL PROGRESSIVES (NSP)

RELIGION, VIOLENCE and the NETWORK OF SPIRITUAL PROGRESSIVES. (NSP):
A dialogue with Rabbi Michael Lerner on the
REFUSAL to ACKNOWLEDGE THE ROLE OF RELIGION IN CULTURES OF VIOLENCE.
 
The following exchanges between Dr, Prescott and Rabbi Lerner illustrates why the NSP cannot achieve its goals by refusing to address the role that RELIGION has in shaping violent cultures and the violence against Women and Children; and to affirm the GENDER EQUALITY OF WOMEN with MEN that is denied by the Abrahamic religions.

E-Mail correspondence below calls for a different priority.

Rabbi Lerner—It is time to launch an “agonizing reappraisal” of the destructive role that religious institutions have had upon Humanity.

The continuing violence against women and her children throughout human history must be understood within a religious framework. Transforming Cultures of Violence into Cultures of Peace is not possible without a transformation of values and assumptions of gender inequality inherent in religious theology.

So God created man in his own image; in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. (Genesis 1:27-29).
