The Charlie Hebdo killings just go to show that when it comes to one's faith, people are willing to kill to defend what one believes is the right thing to do.
That when it comes to one's faith, people would often suspend rational thought and thinking altogether
It is hard to understand why a supposedly all loving, compassionate, forgiving and merciful being who is also almighty, would need the agency of puny men to wreck violence and deaths (even on innocent ones) just to exact respect for the divine.
One would have rationally thought that such an omnipotent and merciful being would least feel insulted by puny men's acts, whatever those may be. If one would still have it that insults need to be punished, who would be better placed to do it then the divine himself, not puny men with all their own sins, faults and frailties?
In fact, one would have rationally reasoned that it itself would altogether be an insult to the divine and, therefore, ungodly, to take it upon oneself to determine life and death when mercy and compassion and forgiveness would reflect the truth.
The Charlie Hebdo madness reminds us that if we ourselves do not put a brake to the growing religious intolerance some are promoting here in Bolehland, we might one day soon have people who would kill at the drop of the hat just because they feel that the divine is insulted or offended.
These people would only further tarnish, and cause others to lose respect for, their faith.
They would only bring their faith into disrepute. That would surely be something that the divine might rightly be offended by.
