GUEST,LynnH BS: Qu: Regarding Religion (335* d) RE: BS: Qu: Regarding Religion 08 Mar 16

"Thou shalt not kill" vs. "Thou shalt not murder".....does this mean that manslaughter is ok?

All religions/ideologies suffer from being misused and perverted by those with power-orientated agendas. Texts are selectively read, what doesn't suit the agenda is either swept under the carpet, openly denied or twisted to suit according to the principle, "I know what Moses/Jesus/Mohammed/Karl Marx really wanted to say." The perpetrators have no qualms about setting themselves on a par with said prophets or even God, and possibly even above them. Cue Phil Collins "Jesus he knows me- and he knows I'm right......."

Of course there's the attitude of many Europeans who claim to be christians regarding the refugees, be they christian, moslem or whatever, fleeing civil war and IS in Syria and Iraq - "Love thy neighbour, etc."?, The parable of the good samaritan'? Never heard of
them...............And that's without pointing out that all the east european states participated in the Iraq war - Poland was one of the invaders -and are therefore share responsibility for the rise of IS and the iraqi part of the resulting refugee problem along with the UK and the USA.
