i wonder if anyone realizes that all this finger pointing is going to do is cause grief and suffering for everyone? it won't correct, anything. the
problem isn't and has never been religion. it's always been human nature. i agree that religion can be A problem, but i don't agree that it is
THE problem. THE problem is people.
the statistics bear this out. history bears this out. if we would realize that WE are the problem and not that guy over there, we could fix this
ourselves by fixing ourselves, personally. i could fix me, you could fix you, or at least we could make the attempt! and we wouldn't be so consumed
with the idea that that guy over there is the problem because of his religion.
imagine how much less ammunition there would be around to feed extremists, if we didn't make such a big deal out of if it in the first place. it
wouldn't get air time, and the groups that might find it useful to support some extremist cause, would have less access to it and less reason to be
up in arms. as it stands, only the bad things people do are paraded across the news.
as steve taylor said in his song, MEAT THE PRESS:
a christian can't get equal time, unless he's a looney, committing a crime.
boy those words have never been truer than now.
