Perceptions of Shit
When shit happens, our interpretations are based on our beliefs and values, essentially our culture. Last night, I came across some interesting perspectives to frame: ‘when shit happens’ in our daily lives. My hope is to enlighten, increase comprehension and appreciation of how different perspectives can positively or negatively affect attitudes and behaviors toward shit.
Buddhism: If shit happens, it isn’t really shit.
Zen Buddhism: Shit is, and is not.
Hinduism: This shit has happened before.
Islam: If shit happens, it is the will of Allah.
Islam: If shit happens, kill the person responsible.
Islam: If shit happens, blame Israel.
Catholicism: If shit happens, you deserve it.
Protestantism: Let shit happen to someone else.
Fundamentalism: Shit must be born again.
Judaism: Why does this shit always happen to us?
Christian Science: When shit happens, don’t call a doctor – pray!
Quakers: Let us not fight over this shit.
Capitalism: That’s MY shit.
