Reader comment on item: The Middle Eastern Cold War
in response to reader comment: The Futility of Warring Religiosity

Do you mean unbelief is a crime? If someone does not believe then the fault can be also with the one who brings the message. Christianity has not succeeded in becoming a convincing message - so why blame those who disbelieve?
Even if you write the word truth with a capital T - does it make any extra impression? Does it make truth your possession to the exclusion of others?
The WAR religions (WAR = West Asiatic Revelation-based) have always manipulated simple-minded or cowardly human beings by making grand declarations of promises and punishments. Islam is here the worst offender.
This trick does not work anymore, except to produce fanatics, violence-doers and hypocrites.
