"I am wiling to love even the most wicked and the one with corrupted heart, but when i see evil manifest itself in this pure and strong form i feel my wings digging trough ether again and i see the flame of my sword brighten."

the book is fallen into darkness a long time ago, that why it holds so many under his power, because power is what it wants.

it has nothing to do with peace, love and understanding, it forsakes knowledge from the beginning as it forsakes all living at the end. this is not the book of god it's color is dark as is it's saying.

"However, on religious issues there can be little or no compromise.
There is no position on which people are so immovable as their religious
beliefs. There is no more powerful ally one can claim in a debate than
Jesus Christ, or God, or Allah, or whatever one calls this supreme
being. But like any powerful weapon, the use of God's name on one's
behalf should be used sparingly. The religious factions that are
growing throughout our land are not using their religious clout with
wisdom. They are trying to force government leaders into following
their position 100 percent. If you disagree with these religious groups
on a particular moral issue, they complain, they threaten you with a
loss of money or votes or both. I'm frankly sick and tired of the
political preachers across this country telling me as a citizen that if
I want to be a moral person, I must believe in 'A,' 'B,' 'C,' and 'D.'
Just who do they think they are? And from where do they presume to
claim the right to dictate their moral beliefs to me? And I am even
more angry as a legislator who must endure the threats of every
religious group who thinks it has some God-granted right to control my
vote on every roll call in the Senate. I am warning them today:
I will fight them every step of the way if they try to dictate their
moral convictions to all Americans in the name of 'conservatism.' "

Yes, the photo on the left is of "heroes"

The photo on the right is of "terrorists"

The point has been beautifully illustrated

Thanks grover - starred.

The two boys are cuter!


Sans the comedy- they are both pictures of the same thing.

Actually both are wrong... to evoke God and religion as any justification of violence is wrong no matter the religion.

BTW just because someone is serving in uniform does not automatically mean they are a hero or anything like it.... 99 times out of 100 they are just an average Joe after a paycheck, not to mention the fact, if they don't follow orders their ass is grass.

Sorry grover, I was being facetious and a little sarcastic when I said that - hence the inverted comma's around the words.

I thought it illustrated the hypocritical perceptions people have about this sort of thing

Sorry. I jumped the gun...you hear so much of that knee jerk jingoism that I tend to react to it quickly.

I love my country but I am not blind to its faults either.

That's why I put it in inverted comma's - in the UK the army are invariably referred to as "hero's" and "Our Boys" by certain segments of the press, creating a false image in the minds of many people.

But perhaps I should have been clearer - apologies for any misunderstanding
