A solution to all this hatred

Reader comment on item: [The American Muslim Council:] 'Mainstream' Muslims?

Submitted by Jared Thompson (United States), Oct 13, 2005 at 02:28

The real cause of all these problems is not Islam or Christianity, it's fundamentalism in general. Modern Fundamentalism is a relatively new concept (yet thousands of years old in heritage) that instructs its adherents to be intolerant and hateful of all religions, races, and creeds except their own. The benefit of this is increased ignorance and fanaticism and of course, obedience to religious leaders. Both Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism have their own rapidly growing Fundamentalist adherents. In the west, the Republican Party has meshed with the Christian heavy Fundamentalist Right, and in the east, the rise of radical Islam. The reason Fundamentalism has grown popular is the impending lack of resources we all face.
I have a solution: Since these people won't listen to reason and can't be convinced otherwise, we should move all of them to the same continent, supply them with weapons and food, and let them kill each other! It'll be Armageddon! You want to prove the rightness of your religion? Go kill the other guy and show how tough your god is. We can watch on TV! Then the rest of us reasonable people can finish off the remaining group and use the newly fertilized ground to grow gardens and forests and fields of food, and live in peace and joy. All the idiots will be gone forever. Amen.

Ta Da!
