《纪念孔子诞辰2560周年并承认他在哲学与社会政治思想方面无价的贡献》

 

 

    2009年9月29日,美国民主党众议员、来自得克萨斯州的艾尔·格林,代表41名众议员提交了纪念孔子诞辰 2560周年的决议草案。

    艾尔·格林是美国国会亚太裔党团协会(the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus)的成员。在10月底,该草案被提交众议院全体会议辩论。该决议案的全名是《纪念孔子诞辰2560周年并承认他在哲学与社会政治思想方面无价的贡献》。

 

 

全文如下:

    公元前551年9月28日被认为孔夫子的诞生日,出生于现在中国山东省曲阜。

    孔夫子是历史上最伟大的思想家、教育家和社会哲学家之一。他创立的哲学思想对世界各国包括中国、朝鲜(韩国)、日本和越南的社会和政治思想产生了深刻影响并且继续在发挥影响力。

    孔夫子倡导自省、自修、真诚和社会关系中的相互尊重,以在个人和公共生活中实现公正和道义,体现最高境界的道德品质。

    孔夫子所教导的“己所不欲,勿施于人”和“己欲立而立人,己欲达而达人”是道德品行的典范,也能促进我们之间的和谐。

    孔夫子教导我们说理想的政府应建立在忠诚、尊老和承认家庭重要性基础上。

    孔夫子教导我们说政界人士必须成为诚实和道德的模范。这些都提醒着我们,要以至高荣誉和尊重履行自己的职责。  

    因此,众议院向诞生2560周年的孔夫子致敬并认可他哲学、社会和政治思想方面做出的无价贡献。
