Well, it’s that time of the month.

I get it. Global climate issues, political uncertainties, anti intellectualism, scientific illiteracy, mass migration and regional conflicts, the list of human calamity is appalling. Blended into this chaff of abhorrent issues are the repeated examples of the human folly of religious intolerance by the worlds theistic institutions.

For all people being singled out for special consideration by Christianity it’s not about the lingering legacy of a malignant characterization of the human experience. No, it’s a daily reality of institutional bigotry and intolerance. Because of the cultural preferences given to religion and Christianity in particular, entire groups of people are freely and openly discriminated against. There’s a penchant by Christians for self absolutions for this form of discrimination expressed in glib platitudes like “love the sinner, hate the sin” and the noxious assertion “we’re all gods children” exposes the religion to be a pernicious concept. The scapegoating of the other to justify believing in the validity of the Christian narrative.

Apparently we are now so inured that the relentless, destructive expressions of faith based institutions that the actions of other theistic groups are on par with traffic fatalities and American gun deaths. There is another religious group who’s views on the human experience is much more malevolent and wantonly violent. Islam.

The website, “Religion of Peace”, has been keeping a record of Islamic violence worldwide since 09/11/2001. What follows is their Jihad report for November, 2018.

Attacks, 136

People killed, 911

People injured, 843

Suicide blasts, 12

Countries affected, 25

For your consideration.

  1. Interesting subject. Violent religions. I was looking up “attacks by Christians” and had some interesting results. The thing I realized is what aspects do you determine is the prevalent one in an attack to decide if it religious based. For example my search results brought in a lot of white supremacist groups, different militia groups, and other groups who were sideline religious. Religion was not the focus of the groups, but each group I looked at was very Christian and touted it in their web pages and literature. Like the KKK, are they a religious group who hates non-whites, or are they a hate group who happen to be Christians? Hugs

    1. To me they all of the groups mentioned come from the same wellspring of Christian dogma. Conform to the narrative and you’re golden but for the exceptions denoted in scripture. Christianity is the devil we know. What I care about is misunderstanding the instructional dangers Islam represents or conflating the two world views as comparable. Until there is a mutual understanding by Muslims for people’s human rights over religious dogma Islam is the biggest threat to liberal democratic governance. No contest.

      1. I semi agree. Don’t you think that it depends on the country and the number of Islamic followers in the country? In the USA the Muslims have never had power or privilege and do not try to demand it, while Christians have had it and do demand it. So for the US it is christian sects that are the greater danger to freedom and liberty. Hugs

        1. They are the fastest growing religion and have managed to stifle criticism and attain special status for their political, legal and religious idiosyncrasies everywhere to migrate. Believe what you will but the tentacles of Islamic retribution knows no boundaries nor borders. Burn a Koran in public and see how the establishment clause shields you from their justice.

      1. Do you think Islam will have sects that mellow like some Christian sects did? If so what caused the Christian sects to “tone it down” and would that same thing work with Islam. The reason I ask is I recently had a long series of comment discussions with a Pakistani girl named Manahil. She insisted her self, her family , and their friends had a much less strident and more tolerant form of Islam. I do not know enough about Islam to argue if she was correct or not, but I did tell her by her own admission most of her fellow countrymen did not support her view of Islam. Hugs
