    It's Beyond Crazy!

     How a religion can brainwash the human brain, I honestly have no idea why they do it. I'm a Catholic and believe in the ten commandments and 1 of then clearly states that you shouldn't kill. That's a big NO-NO! I respect others' religion and belief but i think that...

    Basically...

    ...because God forbids murder and Satan promotes it. And people like to go against the grain. I'm not trying to be funny. This is the truth, and it is that simple.

    Hipocritical

    I know in Christianity, God speaks out quite clearly and plainly against killing in his name. Not only is it against the third commandment that states "Thou shall not kill", but I remember a story from the Bible that was of two messengers or prophets (I dont remember...

    Tell Me...

    How it is not the most aggregious form of blasephemy to take the hatred of Men and consign it as the will of G-d. To take the basest sentiments/actions of Man and give them not only justification, but divinity in the name of a higher power. Someone justify that to me.

    Sixth Commandment

    In Exodus the Sixth Commandment clearly states:  Thou Shalt Not Kill.  This is then clearly reinforced that if one considers that God created life, as those that kill in his name do, that he is the only one with the right to take it away"...the Lord gave and the...

    I don't guess it really matters, does it? Not in the long run. No matter what their reasons or realizations for doing it....It's still wrong & they will be judged & I bet surprised when they realize that they ain't gettin' those 72 virgins............ :)~

    " I Have Often Asked Myself The Same Question"

    How could any one possibly think that killing anyone in the name of God could be right? On of the ten commandments is "Thou shalt not kill" and I think that's pretty clear, and understandable. It means that killing any one, the taking of another life is absolutely wrong. It is a...

    Because They Do Not Understand God.

    Some are so mistaken about the nature of God, that they feel God calls them to kill.  Others choose to kill, and rationalize an excuse.

    Why? Just Why?!

    I am super-religious (just check my other experiences) but will NEVER kill in the name of God. I'm sorry, but doesn't God NOT want us to kill? In alQaeda, in the Crusades, in other religious wars - ???

    I don't know why, but I'm asexual. And if you don't know what that means, it means I have no sexual desire. And I really think that's a sign from God not to get married.
