Humans are so hypocritical. Doesn't matter what religion you are, we are ego driven fools who enjoy believing we are on the "good" side, the winning
side, and all else must be demonized.
What's crazy to me is most ignorant people assume Muslim = Arab even though a massive amount of the worlds Muslim population are Southeast Asian.
Any religious doctrine that starts out by saying "Kill the non-believers! Purge them from the land!" Basically advocating genocide, is a religion that
has some issues.. And I'm talking about Christendom.
- Anyone arrogant enough to reject the verdict of the judge or of the priest who represents the LORD your God must be put to death. Such evil must be
purged from Israel. (Deuteronomy 17:12)
How about advocating violence against women?
- A priest's daughter who loses her honor by committing fornication and thereby dishonors her father also, shall be burned to death. (Leviticus
Every religion has it's passages like this. Throughout the world we have Selective Literalists in every religion, usually the radical and
fundamentalist types, and sadly these psychopaths which represent such a small number out of the actual people who believe, end up speaking for the
rest of us. When most of us just care about peace and love. Not conquering the world and converting everyone.
Simply put, religion is and has always been about control. Those strict Sharia segments of Islam that find themselves in positions of power (usually
with a little help, if ya know what I mean) are hated by their people because of the control implemented over them. Same should be said for our
radical Christian brothers and sisters in the US and elsewhere who are having their minds twisted up by an overtly fascist group.
They are trying to destroy religion, destroy God/Allah/Yahweh... And they will do it by subverting and corrupting the religion itself, from the inside
The Devil is manipulative. He will come clutching the cross, speaking of love. He will get down on his knees and pray beside you.
Do you believe you can be tricked? Or are you omniscient?
