Since the rise and spread of Christianity in 4th CE and Islam in 7th CE, the world has not been safe for those who are different. Jews were the first to be persecuted and thrown into Ghettos, sometimes killed off. Then, even more virulently, followed by humans considered to be “black”. With both proselytizing religions, LGBT and those who are non-religious or not converted to the “true” religion are worthy of death. Hateful fundamentalism disguised as love and righteousness abounds at the very heart of Christianity and Islam in every nation these ideologies have touched and consumed. Conversion is the mandate of these proselytizing religions, sometimes at all costs! It is the only and ultimate goal, the foundation to these religions.
Arabs, Jews, Europeans, Africans, and Asians simply must be Muslim or Christian, depending on which religion is talking. What makes us human – our diversity – is suspect and sinful and worthy of being purged for the sake of “God’s glory”. This is the world we live in today, and it is a violent world of our own making! It is human willingness to question, to resist, to be different that prevents an oppressive ideological take-over of the human primate species, bent on suffering. It is secularism, democratic unions, adherence to non-proselytizing tribal religions that keeps fundamentalism at bay. For the sake of human sanity and sanctity, we must never allow proselytizing monotheism to prevail! Life thrives by diversity, and “truth” and “meaning” in life is not found solely in a single human-written book.
To #MAGA requires the Moores, Trumps, and Bannons of this world (the priests, despots, and white nationalists) to be kept separated from the constitutional governments that are fundamentally at odds with their religions!
Moore camp warns of consequences if Jones is certified as Alabama winner
A spokeswoman for Roy Moore, the loser in Alabama’s Senate special election earlier this month, warned state officials they might face consequences if they certify Democrat Doug Jones as the winner.
Moore thinks that he is #inhisimage and will not concede the Senate seat election he lost – sore loser!
