Has it begun to sprout? Will it bloom this year?
I was just reading an article about a Sudanese woman who was sentenced to death for denouncing Islam. She is safe now and has been moved to Italy. Religious extremism makes me so uncomfortable. There are millions of people in danger and thousands dying around the world all in the name of religion. Christians in northern Iraq are being killed by ISIS rebels and in Gaza innocent children are being bombed by the Zionist state of Israel. Don’t even get me started on the historical brutalities committed in the name of Christianity. Cough cough the mass genocide of aboriginals. A girl my friend knows is in south east Asia trying to turn homosexuals straight through ‘Jesus’.
I think faith can be a powerful tool for the individual and it is a profoundly personal experience to have faith and to believe.
But religion is not faith. Religion is so often used by evil people to control and subordinate others. People have a primitive fear of death and using that fear to manipulate and control others is one of the tools religion uses. Religion is used by evil people to subordinate women, minorities (Ethnic, racial, sexual) and socio-economic classes. Religion is used by greedy power hungry tyrants who have no regard for the humanity of others. Religious extremism is the greatest threat to the stability of nations and people. It perpetrates the idea that the value of some individuals, those who worship a certain deity, is greater than that of those who don’t.
Anyways it’s 2:36 in the morning and I am sad. My thoughts are a little scattered and I apologize for the amount of text posts this evening. We preach tolerance but how am I supposed to be tolerant when I know how much evil is being perpetrated in the name of religion.
I am so fortunate to live the way I do.
there are so many evil things happening in the world and I am so sad
