Okay, I’m going to get some flak for this, I know.
I have to be honest, I’m getting kind of tired of seeing the self-righteous posts by Christians, bashing all Muslims over terrorist bombings. Snarky comments about “the religion of peace” and such.
I’m not a Muslim. I’m a Christian, but as a Christian, I would remind my fellow Christians, before they start feeling too superior and holy, to go back and do a little reading on OUR history…
Little things like The Crusades, The Inquisition, the European blood libels, the Jewish plague massacres, the witch hunts of the 1400’s, John Calvin’s Protestant Inquisition, Oliver Cromwell, The Thirty Years’ War, the Salem witch hunts, the 19th century Jewish purges in Russia, Rev. Jim Jones…and many, MANY more.
Yes, you can pull jihad quotes from the Koran, and just as quickly, they can pull similar examples from the Bible.
Religion, any religion, that adopts the agenda of men, that twists it’s own teaching for political power, and that stops listening to the voice of God, is going to lead to suffering, repression, and destruction.
They’ve done it. We’ve done it.
No one’s hands are clean.
