WAR of the Peaceful Religions!!
Wow, thank no holy being I am not religious, gone are the days when non believers were perceived as violent non believers and satan worshippers who murder for some evil and gothic reasons. I have never been more glad to be a believer of nothing than I am now!! Good gracious, religion is suddenly only meant for the hardened soldier and most violent people.
Each religion preaches peace and love, harmony and angels singing soft hymns in some veiled beautiful earth on the clouds, loving you neighbour as you love yourself etc... yet the reality is, being of any religion nowadays requires you be willing to kill your neighbour in some fanatical fashion to protect your Jesus, Allah, God, Mohamed, Buddha or Krishna.. It’s downright suicidal to be seen attending a church, mosque, temple or even tent nowadays. And all the while the atheists sit on the sidelines, popcorn in the one hand and drink in the other; placing bets with the bookies on whether the prophet Mohammed would beat Jesus in a bare knuckle fist fight!!
Never has it been so dangerous being religious, I have seen violent gangs with more patience to another gang creeping on their turf than I see with religious acceptance and tolerance. Gangs wear colours to show their allegiance and generally you may have a few hundred murders a year based on turf war fare, drugs etc.. yet the religious turf wars are on a supreme scale, we not talking 9mm pistols, AK 47’s, glock 40’s etc, in religion, we talk on IED’s (Independant Explosive Device), the use of Black Hawk helicopters and long range missiles to get the upper hand on the other gang. I mean these religious gangs make all other neighbourhood gangs look like a bunch of ferries tea partying on the river banks.. Its the Christian gang versus the Islam gang.. and the gloves are off, there will be no quarter spared!! You will fight and die for every inch of propaganda territory you gain.
All I can say to this madness is... if you haven’t decided on which gang to join yet, do the right thing don’t join a gang. In the meanwhile, we shall watch from the comfort of our lounges as to which of the two gangs has the will and determination to fight to the last foot soldier.
PS: The Atheists (the 3rd yet neutral gang in all this) are probably laughing in mass hysteria!!
