Bringing Religion Together

I’m so glad that the religions of the Middle East could unite. Isn’t amazing how religion can bring people together?

But I’m just happy that their fighting a worthwhile cause. I mean, is there anything worse than loving someone of the same sex? Surely killing hundreds of innocent civilians because you just feel like bombing something isn’t worse. Neither is encouraging impressionable youths to blow themselves up on busses. No, what’s really wrong is when two people with the same genitals love each other and are open about it.

Seriously, what is wrong with these people? Who don’t they hate? The Muslims hate the Jews, the Jews hate them back, the Christians don’t like either of them, they all think that everyone who doesn’t agree with their particular interpretation is going to hell, but at least they can all agree to hate the gay people.

I suppose it really is too much to just let everyone live their lives as they see fit, without interference. But no, because they have their little book that says what’s right and wrong, everyone has to live by that. Makes perfect sense, really. As much sense as god.

I don’t know how those poor people do it. Those poor people who are trapped in the god-forsaken Holy Lands filled with bigotry and hatred. I don’t know how they do it.

I’ve quoted it before and I doubtless will again, “Men will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest.” Denis Diderot.

  • You sound like Elton John! "From
    my point of view, I would ban religion completely
    "

    If you go deeper into it, isn't the real problem people who combine two dangerous things:

    ~ they have absolute certainty
    ~ they believe that the end can justify the means
    Your pal Diderot seems to be one of those.

    Religious people can get caught up in that kind of thinking of course because their belief is so strong. But so can others whose belief is strong, such as the 'scientific', atheists of the
    communist and national socialist regimes. Pol Pot didn't carry a prayer mat with him!

    I reckon the Dawkins view on religion has pretty poor explanatory value. For many people
    Science is a substitute religion (Positivism),
    no? Better not ban that or kill that kind of "priest"...

  • I'm so glad to hear this too, in my personal opinion, I think that we must stop fighting each other, I don't know why some people are committed to continue doing this and never stop, we must be positive always.
