And God said what? Infidel

Reader comment on item: Op Eds Now More Central in War than Bullets
in response to reader comment: trans-parere, a lesson in history

God has said a lot of things to a lot of people, and a lot of people have written rules that control their tribal societies and fear was the mechanism for maintaining rule. I'm happy you have found your personal God but please don't impose your dogma and hold the selective writings of your religion before me as the ultimate and universal truth. This is the 21st century.

Give a little effort to opening your mind to the possibilities that lie outside of the confines of your religious dogma and quit perpetuating the lie that any people know the will of God because God came to them and said, "You above all men are chosen by me". Jews, Christians, and Muslims are all competing against one another using the same rhetoric. But you argue that yours is more right and can prove it by the spelling. And you've been killing each other since each one adopted their specific dogma.
