I believe in God, everlasting, ever loving, and most High. However if his name is taken in vain, then surely rather than rant against it, or persecute
the speaker of those words if one is to follow scripture, then it is upon the believers to pray for that person ?
I do not see why it must always be war that comes of misplaced words, or ignorant gumflapping. Why not reason? Why not peace? If someone does
something that by your faith is reason for them never to enter heaven, why compound the issue by making this person suffer and die? What purpose does
that serve exactly ?
I dont want an answer to that, because there IS no appropriate answer. Christianity has had for ethical reasons to water down its reactions to
certain things. Centuaries ago, Crusaders would have been running through the streets of the city in question, gutting and burning what they called
heretics left and right as a reaction to this. THANKFULLY that no longer occurs, individual nations may take it upon themselves to present a united
front against xenophobia but thats the extent of it . There is no holy war now. It is ignorance of freedom vs the free world. I hope it is clear, the
ignorance that allows murder over religion will not survive. It will perish, those who support it will perish. And if they do not relent , thier
entire civilisation will fall under the weight of free minded people, determined that no one kill in the name of God.
Dont get me wrong, unfortunately there is war against this now, and it is bloody and bitterly opposed , but not all the hype is propeganda.
When extremists do wrong, they only add to the case against them. When Christians and Israel do wrong, I personaly wish upon them the wrath of God,
just the same as I do for Muslim extremists, or anarchists, or satanists. Anyone who steps beyond the globaly accepted markers of right and wrong
deserves anything they get in return .
I take that veiw now because although I love my God, I also love freedom. Freedom from religious oppresion , freedom from political oppresion, these
are important not just to me but to the way I live my life, and the people I live it with. There can be no backing down in the quest for planet wide
freedom from xenophobia and hypocrasy
