Religion, huh, what is it good for....

PALU, Indonesia - Christian mobs torched cars, blockaded roads and looted Muslim-owned shops in violence touched off by Friday's executions of three Roman Catholics convicted of instigating attacks on Muslims.


Another 'religion of peace' not doing so well in that regard...
You know what - why do I even bother to try? I mean - where's the sense left in this world? Everybody is out to kill and destroy everyone else and those of us who do try - it's useless. It is just useless.

Good thing my family is not known for long lives.
Until we stop dividing the world into good and evil, it will go on. Retaliations and hatreds handed down. Old wounds never allowed to heal.

It's a shame that the Christian religion these days seems to have so little of that of Jesus in it.

I do not remember, when I was a child, being brought up to hate others. Yes, I was told that our way was the right way, but there was not this emphasis on how others must convert or go to suffer in a horrible hell. And I was in an evangelical church!

Ah, for that lost tolerance. I have no idea how to convince the worlds religions to get back to it.
The bizarre thing is that the different groups are trying to show their differences more and more into the extreme, and for that they resort to the same 'weapons'. And that extremism brings them closer together. Only on the wrong end of things...

Here's to "the old days", when things just were not good.
