Old Time Religion..

It is beyond ironic that the most holy sights in world in the mid-east is the most violent and divided area on Earth. This area turns religion itself into a farce. Gotta love that "old time religion", right? There is a lesson to be learned from this. This illustrates how wallowing in blind tradition and dogma undermines the future itself. Evolution and new beginnings are what free us.
Those societies which are willing to experiment, grow and change almost aways function better than those which don’t.
The right thinks that the "traditional family" is the key to a more moral society. Really? Most of the Nazis came from a traditional family and before World War II Church attendance in Germany was fairly high. And yet they engaged in one the greatest acts of evil in history. Both sides in the Middle East conflict have strong families and faith in God yet they are blowing each other brains out. Iraq is a deeply religious society yet the Sunnies and The Shia’s seem determined to wipe each other out.
And one of the world most secular societies on earth, the Netherlands, has one of the lowest murder rates in the world. Go figure.
It looks like the Christian and Moslems in that country finally have common ground. In their hatred of something people do in their own bedrooms. As if the people Nigeria have nothing better to worry about..
