Obviously we can’t. And the jury’s been in for a decade for the ‘religion of peace’. The bad press that Ass-lame receives on a regular basis disproves the title. Such as the following:
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — In a deadly sectarian attack, at least 54 people were killed Friday evening and about 75 wounded when two bombs ripped through a town in a tribal region of northwestern Pakistan, officials said. A militant group affiliated with the Pakistani Taliban claimed responsibility.
That anyone on earth would not only step up, but to be proud of such wanton cruelty, monstrous madness, shredding of the innocent…if ours were indeed the civilized world we wished it to be, this would’ve prompted swift and relentless justice to be wreaked on the heads of those who would boast of such a crime.
Sadly, it is common news. Too common. Our species inherent tribalism and xenophobia might be the end of civilization – how long before one who would train suicide bombers is granted access to the wrong launch codes?
What else is a religion, any religion, but a cloak to disguise the sociopaths among us? A comic book fantasy for the arrested adolescence? The manic mania of the self-loathing narcissist?
Till the next post, then.
