KILLING ANOTHER HUMAN BEING IS NEVER RIGHT, BUT TO BLAME A RELIGION FOR THE NEED TO KILL ANOTHER IS SAD SICK AND REVERTING TO OUR HISTORY, DO WE NEVER LEARN? WHEN HAS WAR EVER BEEN RIGHT? IF IT WAS RIGHT, WHY IS THERE STILL A NEED TO CREATE IT, IN EVERY PERSONS COUNTRY THERE ARE DIFFERENT RELIGIONS, DIFFERENT CHURCHES, PLACES OF PRAYER,WARS HAVE BEEN FOUGHT BY MANY PEOPLE, I FEEL THAT RELIGION IS AN EXCUSE FOR WAR, AND WAR AN EXCUSE FOR RELIGION. WHAT GOOD RELIGION WOULD PROMOTE WAR?

HAS ANYONE EVER REALLY LOOKED AT THIS ? DICTATORSHIP IS A WORD THAT COMES TO MY MIND, MY BELIEFS WOULD NOT GIVE ME ENOUGH REASON FOR MASS KILLING, I WAS BROUGHT UP WITH THIS IN MIND, "WHEN IN ROME ACT AS THE ROMANS DO" NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO VISIT MY HOME AND INFLICT THIER WAYS ON ME, IF I VISIT ANOTHER COUNTRY I RESPECT THIER DIFFERENCES, IF I ADOPT ANOTHER COUNTRY THEN I SHOULD ADOPT IT AS A WHOLE, NOT EXPECT THE NEW COUNTRY TO CHANGE WHAT THEY HAVE , I CHOSE TO GO THERE SO WHAT I LEAVE BEHIND, IS OUT OF CHOICE, NOBODY NEEDS A BUILDING TO BE IN TOUCH WITH THIER MAKER, WHAT HAPPENED BEFORE THESE BUILDINGS CAME?THERE IS A GROSS MISJUSTICE IN RELIGION, PEOPLE READ WHAT THEY WANT TO READ, AS WITH THIER ACTIONS, I ALSO WAS BROUGHT UP WITH THE IDEA OF CHARITY STARTS AT HOME, OUR COUNTRY IS BENDING OVER BACKWARDS TO CATER FOR DIFFERENT SECTS, PURPOSE BUILT HOMES FACING THE EAST, WHEN THIER OWN COUNTRYMEN LIVE IN CARDBOARD CITY, IF YOU BEND OVER TOO FAR YOU WILL TOPPLE, WHEN DO YOU SEE THAT EVERYONE, EVERY COUNTRY HAS THIER OWN LAWS, BUT THEY CANNOT BE BENT OR CHANGED TO SUIT VISITORS, THIS IS WHY LAW AND ORDER GETS LOST, BECAUSE WE CHANGE WITH THE WIND, NOTHING IS REAL BECAUSE IT GETS CHANGED TO SUIT OTHERS, IF A LAW IS IN PLACE IN A COUNTRY IT SHOULD STAY THERE, IF YOU DONT LIKE IT LOBBY, DONT CHANGE IT TO SUIT VISITORS, IT MAKES A SHAM OF ALL THATS EVER BEEN.
