I dont practice thank you, but you have to give Jesus credit he was saying 2 thousand years ago things these fantaics dont get today. love your neighbor as yourself. imagine that, not jihad and lets go plant a bomb killing who ever walks by. By pampering Sadr they are going to have even more problems. watch and see.
Jesus did not exist as the scriptures remember him. The whole Jesus story is a rehash of the religions that were promintent of the time circa 2000 years ago. It doesn't take much thought to realise that love thy neighbour as yourself is a good principle that the whole world would benefit to take notice of.
Instead we have the Christian fundamentalists at war with the Islamic fundamentalists and the dumb public following along with it because they dont have the intelligence to see the real picture. The end of mankind may well be to the stupidity of the ignorant masses.
I know several Christain fundies. Lets not pretend that the fundies dont have preached to them every week in Church that Islam is the decedit of Satan. Lets not pretend that the fundies only support Bush because he proclaims a belief in Jesus. Ask them a question - Name 5 reasons to support Bush? Most don't have the slightest idea - They support shrub because he believes in Jesus and their perverted fundie belief means that stamping out Islam is the major goal of their life. Why? because it is the most potent threat to their false doctrine, wether they understand it or are just sheep.
Lets not believe that Christian fundies are any less vindictive, warmongering or uncompassionate than Islamic fundies. They are not, they just have different methods and politally correct methods. They are just as stupid, and dangerous as Islamic fundies, and they will wage war amongst Islam until their small minds are convinced that they have won the battle against Islam. Its the same type of group-think that causes suicide bombers and terrorists to attack us, and us to attack them. They're all decieved by the doctrine that proclaims them to be the righteous, while all other have been led by Satan to attack them.
Peace and prosperity in the world will never be achieved while there is any religion in the world. The quicker we realise that we are all an insignificant life existing on an insignificant rock orbiting an insignificant star in an insignifacant universe, the quicker we will realise that we all need to work together to make things better for everyone. Some people dont accept that because they are so arrogant that they belive they are better, more deserving, more righteous than the next man. Christians and Muslims.
Thats the lie. Its the same lie thet has been propagated for thousands of years, and sadly will be the same lie until mankind has driven himself into destruction.
Why are we pampering this lie?
