I guess, "turn the other cheek" and other sayings by this "JESUS" guy are no longer viable? Religion is a crock!
The Catholic church and Pope Francis have been accused of a complicit silence and worse during the "dirty war" of murders and abductions carried out by the junta that ruled Argentina from 1976 to 1983.
The evidence is sketchy and contested. Documents have been destroyed and many of those who were victims or perpetrators have died in the years that followed. The moral argument is clear, but the reality of life at that time put many people in a grey position. It was dangerous at that time to speak out and risk being labelled a subversive. But many, including priests and bishops, did so and subsequently disappeared. Those who stayed silent have subsequently had to live with their consciences — and sometimes the risk of a trial.
“One cannot make war [or] kill in the name of one’s own religion, that is, in the name of God.”
He is not Jesus...he is a man last time I looked, so he can punch all he wants.
Pope says those who insult religion should expect a punch on the nose
If I sit here and tell the truth about Muhammad - that he was a mass murdering war lord who invented a religion to give his thievery and murder some backing - is that an insult or is that just plain old telling the truth? Answer - it's the truth.
religious people are supposed to love their neighbours and promote peace not violence.
