We don't have theology. We dance.

But I don't get your ideology. I don't get your theology." The Japanese paused as though in deep thought and then slowly shook his head. "I think we don't have ideology," he said. "We don't have theology. We dance."

I love, love, LOVE this video. I have watched it many times and it makes me laugh out loud every single time. I wish everybody would watch it and just realize that all people want to do is laugh, dance, be happy. No matter where they live, who they are, what they believe. We all love to dance.
