Religious Muslim Immans discussing the Crusades and Jerusalem.
History never stays put in the past. It is like a great tree with roots deep in the soil, a huge trunk, many branches and lots of leaves. We ignore the past at our peril. Cause and effect are also part of History and everyone likes to justify themselves by selecting various ‘start’ points in the past to make their crimes look natural and reasonable. The fact is, humans are extremely violent animals who are also very clever. Other animals kill or injure each other in fierce battles over sex, food and territory. Humans are no different. Right now, we are in a massive religious war with 1.5 billion Muslims that won’t end well due to the fact, this is a gigantic number of people to fight in a war.
The population of Japan in 1940 was 73 million people. The greater Tokyo area today is 38 million people. Germany’s population in 1940 was 70 million. These two populations were able to cook up WWII and overrun huge parts of the earth in a big explosion of murderous violence.
There are about a billion Catholics and there are a billion Protestant. Though both religions are more ethnic identity than any involvement in any churches. There are over a billion Buddhists. And of course, a billion Hindi. Well, that makes for a huge blowout religious war! And yes, we are sliding into exactly that. Like in all previous eruptions of religious wars, Christians are fighting Christians in the Protestant/Catholic/Orthodox battles of the last 1,000 years+.
The ancient Sunni/Shia split continues its bloody fighting, too. Factionalism is usually resolved via the sword. The US was unique in that it made all religions equal. This experiment in tolerance always teeters on the edge of destruction. In Europe with a history of religious tolerance of less than 50 years, it is in the process of crashing into ruin.
Naturally, as leader of one of the billion followers, we see the new Pope Francis going to his palace balcony and he condemns ‘deviant forms of religion’ in the wake of French massacre accusing them of causing ‘the breakdown of society and spawning violence and death’ | Daily Mail Online:
Pope Francis has slammed ‘deviant forms of religion’ following the deadly attacks by Islamist militants in France last week which left 17 people dead.
‘Losing their freedom, people become enslaved, whether to the latest fads, or to power, money, or even deviant forms of religion,’ he said, laying the blame on ‘a culture of rejection’ which leads to ‘the breakdown of society and spawning violence and death.’
‘We see painful evidence of this in the events reported daily in the news, not least the tragic slayings which took place in Paris a few days ago,’ he said in his yearly speech to the members of the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See…
He said he hoped 2015 would bring progress toward a new climate change agreement, saying in a brief deviation from his text that it was ‘urgent.’
ALL religions are ‘deviants’ or rather, there is no ‘right religion’. The Pope betrays his true belief system: he is, of course, in his eyes, one of the ‘good’ religions and all others are ‘deviants’. I married first a Jewish man and then a Catholic man and both families of my husbands absolutely HATED my guts from day one due to the fact that my parents were Lutherans and I was the deviant devil woman! And this is in tolerant America!
If I married either man 20 years earlier, my parents and grandparents would have disowned me, too! What is particularly funny is how the Pope had to tack on his ‘climate change is killing us’ ever so innocently. The Catholic Church as well as the Protestant cults have a very long and very ugly history of murder, persecution, butchering or oppressing women and gays, the Christians have never been nice people, when preachers try to teach foreign tribes all about Jesus, when the military from Europe shows up, the swords are drawn and draconian religious rules are imposed with greatest ferocity.
But then, the Aztecs of Mexico did this too! Everyone who has a sword and religious faith in anything, does the same stupid thing. That is, they enforce religious beliefs and kill anyone who refuses to obey them. Why can’t a Pope refer to history when talking about religion? Well, their heads would explode.
Homeless children CAGED in Manila to keep the streets clean for Pope Francis Philippines visit: if you click on the story, you can see pictures of street urchins being locked in cages. This is a Catholic country that forbade anyone preaching other Christian religions for many years. There are Muslim Filipinos who do the guerilla warfare thing off and on. The Catholic Church loves to funnel all social help through their sticky hands which is why they have some of the biggest palaces on earth. But then, all the other religious leaders also have very sticky hands and live in huge palaces, too.
Jesus didn’t live in a palace nor did Buddha or Mohammed which is why religions are so hilarious: the addiction towards lining their own nests leads all of these creeps to suck up most of the ‘money for the poor’. Now on to Born Again Christians who are Republicans and who want to end social services:
NJ Pastor Eric Dammann demonstrates how he punched child for ‘not taking God seriously’: yes, you beat up people to convince them that Jesus loves them. Of course, they would butcher Jesus for being gay, being a leftist, for being a revolutionary, for being a troublemaker. He hung out with prostitutes. He roamed the land, telling Jews to stop discriminating against their neighbors. He said all people were created equal.
But then, that is the message of Mohammed and Buddha, too. They were all anti-tribalists. And the present followers are all very tribalist indeed. As tribalist as the Jews who revel in their God Loves Only Us status based entirely on genetic tribal affiliation.
FBI reveals Imam who inspired Charlie Hebdo terrorists has been busted for soliciting prostitutes is rather amusing only because all the tribal warfare religious nut cases are sexual predators, too. All of them. In Africa, Asia, Eurasia, North America, South America, etc.
Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg says they may have been wrong to remove Hamza Ali Abbasi’s post comparing criticising Islam to using the N-word or praising Hitler illustrates my point this week that censorship online is severe. And all the EU leaders marching for ‘free speech’ actually don’t allow this at all and are extremely nasty to anyone who dares to try out their free speech rights.
