> I interpreted the "cantankerous bearded patriarchal figure" generally to be the image of the vengeful God from the old testament... The emphasis of the poem seems to be that we should focus on love and offer kindness and beauty rather than promoting revenge and war.

Sorry, but even if the main idea is love and kindness and beauty, "cantankerous" and "vengeful" could lead others to feel their faith has been put down.

If you or others have questions about this or about posting policies in general, or are interested in alternative ways of expressing yourself, please see the FAQ:

Follow-ups regarding these issues should be redirected to Psycho-Babble Administration. They, as well as replies to the above post, should of course themselves be civil.

Thanks,

Bob
