    Take away religion and all you have left is satire.

    The problem is aspirations of grandeur limited by the reality of poverty and ignorance. In that situation, destruction and killing is the only way to make the world even notice they’re there. Like the child who misbehaves to get a parent’s attention because negative attention is better than none at all.

    From Joshua, through the Inquisition, and nuclear war, why is it only Islam that’s blamed for intolerance and violence, especially as their faith is based on the same exact text as the other two, with the addition of the Quran. Does this mean Mitt will also start more wars based on his “additional text” noting that Jews and Jesus roamed the Great Plains??

    Nope.

    Methinks that if you seriously believe that then you need a refresher course on what the LDS faith believes.

    So, you’re basically saying being Muslim is cool, provides value-add ‘cos it’s a religion.

    Adolph HItler was a Roman Catholic, raised that way, and never renounced the faith. While many Roman Catholic clergy DID help save Jews, and other folks, the Pope sat on his hands and did, well, nada.

    On today’s strip Damn straight, when they ran Bin Laden out of his home they said he grabbed his personal RPG.

    You beat me to it; O. C. seems a little confused. Of course, religion will do that to you.

    Hitler was a Christian (in the Crusader/Inquisition mold.) While Stalin, Lenin & Mao may have suppressed religion but it had little to do with their govt operations. In fact they wanted to replace religion with their form of philosophy. But Atheism wasn’t an anthem or a philosophy they used.

    I noticed that four of the organized religions are there…. but what about the rest of the world? I don’t see a Protestant, someone from the various Native tribes around the world, nor any NeoPagans there at all.

    “nor any NeoPagans there at all.”
    I’m shocked & outraged that Pastafarianism isn’t represented either. :-|
    “someone from the various Native tribes around the world”
    Right, because if one has seen ‘Native tribe’s’" religion, then one has sampled them all. All ‘Native tribes’ around the world are alike and should have at least 1 representative at that table.

    (btw, wtf is a ‘Native tribe’? Everyone whose ancestors haven’t mass migrated in the last thousand years….? Tch, I know, from the eyes of Euro-Americans & Europeans, anyone darker than they are.)

    ^The Dalai Lama was forced to leave Tibet. Why couldn’t the Pope have just moved to Rio, or Switzerland, or Chicago, and left his castle??


    I understand where you’re coming from, but as I noted, many Catholics, Protestants, Jews, and others DID “stand up” and risk their lives. The leader of (at the time) the largest religious group in the world, could have done, more.

    .
    1) No, they’re not all alike, or they’d have the same Creation story. I know that’s a myth as I’ve read such stories for the Tribes that reside in my Country, and they’re all different.
    .
    2) What I meant by “Native Tribe” are those People who were there before others conquered the land. That’s why both Canada & the US have “Native” tribes. Maybe other countries around the world have their “native” tribes, but I’ve not heard of them.
    -—————————————————————————
    Are you that racist to include “…anyone darker than they are”? Here in America, you’d have to include those of African descent who were brought here as slaves as well as the present-day Latinos and Haitians, all of whom are darker than those of European descent.
