The more I watch the news footage of last night’s tragedy in Paris, the more I fail to understand the relevance of religion. How can a person worship an abstract, fictional being and find it acceptable to fight for the right to have their ‘God’ as superior over another, by murdering innocent human beings?
There is nothing honourable in violence, no respect in loyalty to an intangible entity. Without religion, these people may well still exist, but they would not have the fuel to indoctrinate & radicalise to the extent that brainwashes one to kill & take their own life in the name of their ‘God’.
In the words of another victim of tragedy…
Thank you John Lennon for your wise, relevant words.
