Reader comment on item: Something Rotten in Denmark?

It's obvious that the fanatic followers of the Muslim system, yes I call it system not Religion, are digging their own graves. They are no match against the American and European forces.But their indoctrinated fanaticism is literally forcing them to act way out of balance.
That a few cartoons can lead people to send dead threats is alarming!

And right at the spot some fanatic "non Muslims" start threatening to throw out ALL Muslims of their country! Is their Tolerance and Discrimination gone? Are they acting like cats and dogs? Yes, and tomorrow we might do the same - watch out!

Holy people like Mohammed and Jesus teach us to be more tolerant than a three and to Love our enemies. Jesus said "Thou shall not kill" etc. But few of us can follow Their teachings and instead start to interpret, WHY?
Because we don't want to limit our own plans for sense gratification for the sake of peace and the wellbeing of planet Earth!

That's why, trough God's will, systems are applied by the government and spiritual leaders in order to keep people under control. But since our governments and spiritual leaders have not enough purity and often act in the same impure way, by supporting big business plans for example, we are facing the dilemma of differences of systems as well as corruption etc.

The more a system limits their followers in enacting their God given free will, the more they will oppose their own system or another system, which does the same in another way.

So there is something rotten not just in Denmark but in humanity at large and that is:
We are misusing our free will!

True Religion is not enforcing sectarianism, but Love.
Love brings about Compassion, Respect, Tolerance and the ability to discriminate between people's motivations. We all have the ability to solve this dilemma each for him/herself, inside. And that's what will bring about a turn towards peace. Your peace inside will affect others.

On a Religious basis that would start with realizing that there is only One God whatever name He/Her/It is given. There is one law, the law of nature. There is one family on earth - the living entities.
On a social basis that would mean to follow the basic rules of maintaining peace.
Ruling with Love is possible!
Socially it starts in our own family. Are we nice to each other, do we help each other, do we Love each other?

To kill a Muslim means to kill a brother/sister. To kill a Christian means exactly the same, don't we all agree on that? Or do we all go with the saying "A dead redskin is a good redskin".

Is a Muslim who prays for the dead of a Christian and vice versa pleasing God?
Of course not!

We should not wait and hope we will learn from the ongoing "War of systems",
but learn to Love each other now.

Thank you for listening. A Friend
