Wow. I’ve always thought that most religious folks end up burying the good side of their religious tendencies when they are in support of a war. You know, the whole “love thy neighbour, don’t kill people, etc” thing. That seems kind of important in most religions.
Take a look at an article by Jerry Falwell, entitled God is pro-war.
Wow. It’s nicely written, researched and has all kinds of citations in the bible for support. That is the scary part. Seeking out justification for killing innocent people? Proposing that their god is sanctioning their war and the killing of innocent people?
These are the same people labelling the “terrorists” as religious fanatics who are especially dangerous because they use religion as the justification for their actions. These people need to take a hard look in the mirror.
And some people would wonder why I don’t think religion should be a part of politics. All it takes is one screwball like Falwell to start justifying anything with religion and then it all goes to hell quickly – literally, in his case.
