“A government that blesses itself in the name of Jesus Christ, while waging war and advancing empire, must first demolish the meaning of who that man was.”

  1. Dan Says:

    From Constantine to Torquemada to the modern day, few Christian governments have done differently.

  2. The Heretic Says:

    Nor few Muslim governments, nor few atheistic governments. All of them, regardless of religion, wage wars and advance their nation. Just because some of them have a deified figure who was purported to be peaceful (Jesus), Yahweh certainly was not. Religions might have peaceful or tolerant aspects to them (I don’t believe that – but just for the sake of argument let’s say they do), humans are still ambitious and cruel creatures. A truly peaceful nation wouldn’t survive long.
