marty D Missionaries also a breed of terrorists? (118* d) RE: Missionaries also a breed of terrorists? 14 Oct 01


It's hardly surprising that there has been a surfeit of religious threads lately, and it's even less surprising that they've been more negative than positive. We've just been attacked by people who feel that God is fighting with them. We mourn our victims with constant references to "our" God, in word and song. We retaliate in the name of God. More people die from our bombing while calling to "their" God. It's become "Duelling Religions" (Gee, a music reference) between people absolutely convinced of their righteousness. I think big-time skepticism is a pretty natural result. Besides there has been some excellent writing and debate in threads like this. Don't like the negativity? Don't get mad. Start a positive religious thread. (as Wyz has already done) That's a better antidote.
