- Dec 3, 2007Mike, Steve, all.
It has to do with basic brain washing techniques.
Let's face it, if you grew up in a family that lived
in a neighborhood that worshipped trees as your
supreme being, and all of your neighbors gathered
together to quote some "book of the oak" that was
discovered as having been written during the Roman
dictatorship period, or anytime actually, then guess
You'd be worshipping trees today.
There is very little thoght outside of the average
church doctrine being taught in any religions today.
The last holier than thou Jesus freak I had to listen
to go on and on and on about, I finally just looked at
him and said "so, i guess 600 million Chinese are
going straight to Hell when they die, huh?
Ofcourse I got the fire and brimstone sermon again.
I guess depending on who you talk to, their religious
beliefs are the only ones that count and nobody else's
is worth a hoot in Hell.
It's the elitist 'know it all' attitude that has
alsway turned me against different septs of organized
I have faith in my own beliefs, but I don't think it
is proper to start a Jihad over them.
My God is a God of peace and love and forgiveness.
