Bruce: Read “Love Wins” by Rob Bell. It’s a good discussion of those “conservative evangelicals”, BY an evangelical minister!
Also important to realize that those same 630 plus laws of Moses have been used by ALL THREE bible religions as a base, to be distorted and abused by “latter day” followers, including the Inquisition (that Ratzinger was in charge of!), Judaic law, and many others, yes, including radical Muslims, who do NOT follow the actual Quran, but rather what those same latter day “nut cases” have come up with!
Just as one aside, Mohammed only declared the veil be worn by HIS OWN WIVES, NObody ELSE!
There’s also some really neat poetry out there by Sufi, and other Muslims over the centuries, that says not ALL are radicals. Remember, Hitler was raised Roman Catholic, and never denied the “faith”, thus, while many priests DID help folks escape his reign of terror, the Pope did, well, nada!
Read Bell, while I remain a Buddhist at heart, altruism being the higher calling, he can make people think under a much brighter light with regard to the “God of Abraham”, and Jesus!
