  •  Religious insanity (0+ / 0-)

    Plenty of Christians are sane. Plenty of Muslims, too. They realize their religion is THEIRS, and even if they'd like to convert you, they know it's a personal decision.

    Not the religiously insane. They want it ALL. They want their religion to be the law of the land. They want you to be converted, even at the point of a sword or legal, political prosecution.

    They have no idea, but they've become the New Romans. They are the ones throwing martyrs to the lions. That's some massive irony, and here's some more: Every secular government before Christianity was TOLERANT. The overlords, from the Romans to the Persians to the Greeks, did not care what religion their subjects and citizens practiced as long as they paid their taxes and tribute.

    If these nuts ever got their dream theocracy, their leaders would only become obsessed with purer and ever purer versions of their own fervor, and culling and purging their own ranks. They are a cancer on humanity, and will never understand how or why.
