Every time someone says something about our religion or practice of it that we do not like, we jump up and down like agitated monkeys on hot tin roof.
When are we going to trust in the god we believe in?
When are we going to feel comfortable in the practice of our religion?
When are we going to stop hunting for blood in god's defence?
When since has god become a dracula?
And how does that make god look if he needs us puny and pathetic men to intervene on his behalf so that he would not look less plausible?
It really does defy logic and good sense that we should get so easily incensed and hot under the collar when someone makes a remark that we perceive injures god's good name and reputation or our practice of religion that we should so pompously and presumptuously and so self righteously call and demand for blood to be shed in defence of the religion we practise and/or the god we worship.
Especially so, since we all believe that the god we worship is merciful, forever loving and forgiving and almighty to boot.
One would have thought that such a god could mighty well take care of and defend himself and not contradict his own attributes by enjoining his worshippers to do the ungodly and thus diminish his own believability?
Or are we trying to prove our own lack of godly worthiness by scrambling to prove the almighty how worthy of his divine appreciation we are for being so ardent in his defence?
Is god so easily fooled?
Or are we just fooling ourselves and hoping that god is taken?
Politics and god might not look so dissimilar after all, if all that we can think of is revenge and retribution each time we feel aggrieved by an insult to our religion or to the god we worship.
