Mmm, thanks for the tip

Is there anything catholics will not believe?

One of my two readers has asked me: "why are you so down on religion now?" It's not the season, although the fake Fox "War on Christmas" definitely jumps on my last nerve.

No, it's just the endless Sunni-Shiite conflict. Islam is no more or less ridiculous than any other religion. Islam has some magnificent elements to it: an emphasis on equality, charity for the poor. What bothers me is that the Sunni and the Shia are both following the same religion, yet so many of them are hell-bent on killing each other. Same holy book, same prophet, essentially the same beliefs, but because of a failed ascension to power some fourteen centuries ago, they're willing to kill each other's babies, rape each other's wives, commit acts of hideous desecration and torture.

It's all for nothing, less than nothing. Their God doesn't exist, and He doesn't care how he is worshiped.
