How do you gift a human life? Someone’s interpretation of the Bible says you can. Read these stories,
If there’s an urgency to destroying radical Islam, shouldn’t there be an equal or greater urgency to target fundamental Christians who “gift” a human? Why is it so easy to recognize a twisted interpretation of a Christian doctrine as contrary to most Christian beliefs, but not so when it is within Islam?
Why are we willing to act out of fear and destroy those we do not understand because we see them as broadly representative of an entire religious tradition, yet, when confronted with similar examples of a “Christian” atrocity, we argue it does not represent most Christians.
Where’s the outrage? Where’s the slobbering vitriol to “destroy” these enemies of all that is good?
My issue with religion is the certainty of adherents that their own theology is the correct one and all others are wrong. They hold this secret despite protestations to the contrary. As I am often reminded,
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.
Those who embrace the fundamental aspects of any religion are equally dangerous in my mind.
One lashes out with bombs strapped to brain-washed adherents who believe they’ve booked a trip to a “Virgin” nirvana.
Another will use cruise missiles or perhaps nuclear weapons to blanketly target 1.5 billion adherents because of the actions of a few.
All in the name of God.
Where’s the “Christianity” in that?
