gets upset when I ask him to burn me a copy.
I am not convinced that faith can move mountains, but I have seen what it can do to skyscrapers.
I hope they post monthly. This view could produce a good body of material.
Theists will find any excuse to insert their hatred of the other into any situation or conversation. Anyway, I’ll leave them wallowing in their hate and look for useful ways to support the families torn apart by this horrible event.
When the country was more religious, in those good old days that conservatives yearn for, there were still school shootings: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/School_shootings_in_the_United_States
The men who committed the atrocities of September 11 were certainly not ‘cowards’, as they were repeatedly described in the Western media, nor were they lunatics in any ordinary sense. They were men of faith – perfect faith, as it turns out – and this, it must finally be acknowledged, is a terrible thing to be.
Sam Harris, The End Of Faith
There was no abberation of faith here. The hammer blows of secular law wont allow theists from killing people of other faiths or of no faith any more. Their violence is celebrated in the Christian bible.
Fundamentalist Islam’s celebration of the 911 attacks is the same celebration that the US had at the death of bin Laden (WWJD – was that turning the other cheek) or victories in Afghanistan or Iraq. It is the celebration of killing someone of a different faith. It is the denial of that person’s humanity.
