Ah, something to bring the radical religious right of all religions together upon in one great war of single minded truth... or, as a radical religious right might say: Death to all non-questioners! LOL!

Sounds like he knows our president.

Yes, each religion believes only they know the truth. While preaching peace, they are all willing to kill and die to make their point.

I'm more worried about those in political power who seem to know what's best for us all. massive crimes have been committed "For the Greater Good". And any religion that says I have to die because I don't subscribe can call me a heretic or an infidel, I don't care. As long as we have the 2nd Amendment they can say whatever they want...but if they act on that belief...God help them. ;-)

Stalin, Mao and the rest of the religious left (with their denominations of liberalism, progressive dogmas, collectivism, etc. = socialism) have slaughtered more heretics in saving the world than any others claiming a monopoly on the truth. Truth can stand on its own without without murdering the nonbeliever.

Slaughtering the heretics, Sounds an awful lot like Islam.

The pernicious press prevaricates profusely and persistently. Their most repeated lie is "government spends money." How can they get money from us when all that we have in banks is numbers and why should they need money when all of us are risking our lives for more numbers? Control of communications is the first objective of conquest and to remove gold and silver was the second. Roosevelt got our gold in 1933 with threats of jail and fines if our grandparents never surrendered if and 35 years later, our silver was removed from banks by Freemasons whose god is Lucifer and whose goal is to impose their religion n the world.

Whether the destruction is waged for or against a particular religious belief, such arrogance has resulted in millions upon millions of murdered civilians who read the 'wrong' book. I am a little tired of Christians ignoring their own history of genocide while claiming to secure us from 'Islamo-fascism.' Either we are a nation of laws or not. The corruption of the law is the greatest threat to liberty -- not the other guys' religion or lack thereof. Whatever happened to honor and integrity?
