Ooh-Aah2 Obit: More Muslim intolerance? (589* d) RE: Obit: More Muslim intolerence? 03 Nov 04

The Roman persecution of the druids was political, not religious - the druids were constantly stirring up insurrection against them.

"If all the guns departed the world tomorrow we would still murder each other" - yep, and for the same reasons as ever, a fair chunk of that being the kind of intolerance brought to perfection by the three monotheisms. And before you make the obvious point, it's the intolerance I am intolerant of.

"Once the religions are at peace" - dream on!

Hatred is spread by the monotheisms - hating spreaders of hatred is quite legitimate (the religions themselves I mean, not the poor moderate dupes within them).

It's strange that 'pillocks using religion as an excuse' always seem to be from these three faiths - coincidence? I don't think so.

'Giok' you obviously didn't read my original post very thoroughly - I dislike Christianity just as much as Islam. The old Pagans certainly got stuck into each other but it was the advent of the three monotheisms which provided whole new reason/ excuse/ motivation for bigger, bloodier, bitterer wars than ever. Now we have modern weapons it's only going to get more hideous - medieval minds with missiles.
