Would you care to give me the verse you say you quote from "my Old testament"?

I'm thoroughly familiar with the Old Testament, and it nowhere gives us the right to kill people simply because they don't believe inGod. There are those who had sunk so far into a depraved civilization that God gave a one time order to clear the filth out. Let's see they were sacrificing their own children to "gods" - much like the Muslims of HAMAS who train their children to hate and kill from the moment their first words come out of their mouths. Much like goes on in Saudi Arabia and Iran.

I don't think you have ever read "my" scriptures of any kind. Your little "protected" society wouldn't let you near one unless you wanted to chance getting caught and being severely punished.
