Sorry, but you need to learn some history.
The witch hunts were inspired by fear, greed and hatred.
God/religion was just an excuse.
The church wanted power, control, and the people they saw as the biggest threat to this control were the village wise women and any single wealthy
So they brought in a system whereby the possessions of any woman killed or driven from her land for witchcraft were split between the church, the
informer and the town's highest official.
The longer this went on the more greed, and the sadistic delight people took in the spectacle, drove the process.
You can say the men watching loved seeing a girl with her clothing burnt off writhing in the flames. The men who tore her body to pieces first to
elicit a confession loved torturing. The officials of the church loved power. The informers loved the money they earned.
But you can only say this because "love" in our language has several different meanings.
True love involves the willingness to sacrifice yourself for the good of others, never the willingness to sacrifice others for your own benefit.
GWB himself said that we was the "comforter" in chief.. that it was gods will to start those wars... theres a quote of it somewhere on
It's just sickening that anyone could believe that crap.
Those people pick strategicaly valuable places to fight to win wars to protect their children... their ideals... their love.
Do you know about GWB's older sister, how she died alone in hospital at five years old, being treated for leukaemia, because her parents were too
busy playing golf to come to the hospital when they were told she was dying? They played golf again instead of going to her funeral.
That family don't even love heir own children. All they know is personal greed, hunger for power and contempt for the world.
