I am very very very angry at what happened to innocent civilians etc...

But I am furious at those people who suggest that religion is an excuse for killing. You must be including me then. I am religious. I do not kill. I do not kill. I do not kill.

I do not use religion as an excuse for anything.

Some people may. I do not...

I take offense! Very much so.

So, are those people who make claims that religion is an excuse for killing is that a general statement? They should really consider retracting that statement, and point it towards individuals who do use it as an excuse. They should also point it towards those societies who believe that killing is an acceptable means of dealing with things.

Once again, I will say, I have not been angry in this forum. Towards anyone. Until the last few days. When unfair shots have been taken.

This makes number two.

We are all saddened and angry at what happened.
Think before pulling the trigger on thine mouth.

I know that I am not the only one who would be offended by this.


That's what my religion has told me is ok. Actually it's my GOD that paves the way for it.

True peace, through peaceful means.

No excuses.
