Not that I’m religious, which I think was made quite clear earlier, I realised that when believers talk about their religion they talk about the people within it. Muhammad, Jesus, God.
The beautiful messages that someone, whether it be an anonymous author, sons of God or random prophets, expressed was – and still is – completely ignored by their followers. The first request is don’t kill people. We can all agree that this have been ignored for a while. When the Christian church was established in Rome, the Romans were still killing. The Orthodox department were still killing – and unfortunately, my favourite, the protestant church were still killing when it was established in Germany not so long ago. All the Christian soldiers in Iraq and Afganistan, all the Christian soldiers in the World War series, all the Christian militias since the dawn of Christianity. This doesn’t only count for soldiers, we still have politicians, police officers, home-moms and other random believers that thought killing in the name of God was a good idea. A second request is don’t lie. Everybody lies! I lie, you lie, he, she, it lie, we lie, you lie, they lie. I could continue but my message couldn’t be any clearer.
As much as I want worshippers that wasn’t my intention – my intention is to express a message: Believe in kindness, don’t harm people. Jesus didn’t seek fame or worshippers, he sought believers to believe in kindness and goodness. Beautiful quest, but failed miserably resulting in genocide, homocide, suicide and many other -cides.
