So are Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Jews, Parsies, Voodoo worshipers and Atheists. Human beings are wonderful for the most part. The vast majority of people in this world are normal and charitable folks. I’d say 80% of the people in this world, do no harm for the most part. That’s because, human beings are born divine.. Not born as sinners. Yes, we are all born with some selfish traits which are required for survival and that is part of evolution. When a child is born, it’s not full of sin. Its full of innocence and curiosity. It’s the responsibility of adults, starting with the child’s parents to bring them up well. The child soaks up the environment it’s born in. Garbage in, Garbage out.
The indoctrination of a jealous god is the last thing you want to pollute a child with. That is child abuse.
I love Christians… Christianity? Not so much!
If you read many of the religious texts, including the Bible and the Quran, they are horrible stuff. In an, even the broken clock is right twice a day kind of way, you may find some nuggets of wisdom here and there. But for the most part they are all rubbish. Human beings by nature are reasonable and tends to dust off the trash and imbibe the few morals from these writings. In fact. the civic moral compass that we possess seem to aid in cherry picking what is good and what is wrong. Unless one is a sociopath most of the folks tend to ignore the not so good parts of these “holy scriptures”. These sociopaths however tend to gravitate towards the evil portions of these scriptures”.
I find Christians and Muslims who don’t seem so religious to be more moral than their cousins who tend to wear their religion on their sleeves. Most Christians are social Christians…Christianity for weddings and funerals only.. These are the “good Christians” we all come across. The Born again types? Sheesh! they gives me the creeps. Which is in contrast to someone who is far more religious among the Buddhists, the Hindus, the Sikhs et. al. A Buddhist or a Sikh “fundamentalist” may tend to pray a lot more but are not harmful to society. I cannot say the same thing about the Christian or an Islamic “fundamentalist”. A Hindu priest who is very devout do not go around abusing or preying on non believers either. I can attribute that to the “religious texts” of these faiths alone. Yes, the Abrahamic religious texts are crude, unsophisticated and downright immoral.
Being a Christian does not make one any better than someone being a Buddhist or a Hindu or a Sikh or a Parsi or a Jew or a Voodoo believer. Its just another superstition.
But what about those non religious Atheists? Whelp! A spiritual atheists is also ok.. This is someone who muses about the things beyond our physical world and come to a logical conclusion that there there is no other power beyond us.. That is an honest position and he/she merely go away being moral using the civic moral compass. But then there is the political left and communists who are “fundamentalist” in their atheism. These folks were the ones who once ran around (who continues to run around even now in India) waving their little red book of absolute truth revealed to them by their Lord and Savior “Chairman Mao” or “Marx” who evangelize their “only revealed truth” and goes about converting people and nations into the ideology. In a bizarre way, the far left and the far right religious fanatics do find common grounds that way..to impose their beliefs on others and in the process commit evil. This is why these two have found common cause in places like India. The evangelical church and communists are butt buddies in India.
The above image does not include the number of people killed by the Abrahamic religions except for Hitler who followed Martin Luther ‘s antisemitic hatred towards Jews..the founder of protestant christianity.
IF you have not seen this you tube video where this one Christian woman Brigitte Gabriel seems to have a “one up” on this young Muslim woman. She does make a great point. But Ms Gabriel is obviously not self aware… the same point could be made of Christians too.
It’ not about the irrelevant majority Christians. Its the radical Christians who are warring with Hindus and Buddhists of Asia.
This is not about the irrelevant peaceful majority Christians.. It’s about the radical Christians who have done such evil in this world and tend to continue to do evil in Africa and in Asia.
A child is not born a sinner: A Child is born with innocence and curiosity.
