Today, July 14th, is the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille and the beginning of the French Revolution.
Besides the general comments that I outlined after the terrorist attacks in Paris and Brussels, there’s not much more to say — the killing of those who don’t think alike and do not believe is a divine order which is directly derived from the sacred books. That is demonstrably true.
It’s frustrating and distressing to think that the more people refuse to properly diagnose the problem, the more victims there will be. But they would rather believe that religions only produce peace and love! The fear of offending or ‘alienating’ millions of believers pales at the prospect of losing more innocent lives.
Do you think it is farfetched to claim that people who keep denying the relationship between religion and terrorism have blood on their hands?
