THE Wrong MOUSE HOLE
Yesterday, Phil Georg left a lovely comment, part of which was “… do you believe there's something inextricably dangerous about Christianity, even liberal Christianity?”
My answer is yes, Phil, I think Christianity and Islam – even liberal Christianity/Islam -- are inherently lethal. Liberal Christians/Muslims sock their stamps of approval onto books (bible/koran) backing war, torture and rape of the earth.* As a result, war, torture and rape of the earth are always available for use by radicals when times get tough.
When the Christian Inquisition began, were liberal Christians absent from Europe? No. Were they able to catch the runaway train? No: estimates are that the Church tortured and murdered up to 6 million. Are religious liberals absent now, as fundamentalist George Burning-Bush leads us into torture, murder, nuclear war and environmental death? No. Do you see liberals reining him in? I don’t. (Am I just looking in the wrong mouse holes?)
Phil: as long as intelligent people sanction holy books espousing war, torture, and rape of the earth, we will suffer war, torture and rape of the earth.
