A guy gazes open-mouthed at his idol in a concert. Two men about to cry venerating the Virgin Rocio. A man on a streetlight celebrating that some team won a trophy. A man desires a shadow. A virgin for sale. A sick couple walks with their torchs thinking they will be cured. A girl who is going to get married .... A kid embracing a cup. A sparker is thrown up in the air.
God was deported...
They sacked him out of the place he occupied for 2,000 years. Those who had to keep and guarantee his place did not know how to do it and moved him away people. The only ones giving God his existence. These have keept it for themselves, but in different ways.
Current society, as tar, covers whatever is not useful and cannot follow its rhythm. Current society transforms and adapts anything to its own needs.
In the Western world, a person (a religious being by definition) has no longer points of reference. Old ways do not work any more, now the human being venerates football players, artists. They organize parties apart from gods and reach the ecstasy because of a goal, a shout, a body... Symbols have changed, identities are now set by T-Shirts of one colour or another, with a logo and a photo. Even if rites and beliefs are essentially the same, make sense to our life.
