After all, Europeans are direct descendants of Romans, the most brutal collection of savages in human history, who forced their slaves regularly to kill each other and be killed by wild beasts in brutal, bloody savagery, and enjoyed watching that as a spectator sport in public stadiums. That is the basis of European un-civilization.
As if that was not enough, the same brutes high jacked Christianity, (a perfectly peaceful religion and whose purpose was to unite the victims of Roman savages and help them to survive) and used it as a tool of oppression, brutality and exploitation until right now.
The same brutes today are discriminating against Moslem people.
Remember: No one person who is disrespectful to human rights and freedoms of fellow human beings is a real, sincere follower of any religion (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Zoroastrianism, Buda, Hindu, Zen, etc.) Or no real, sincere follower of any religion is or can be disrespectful to the basic human rights and freedoms of fellow human beings.
I still see some near real Christians in Europe, but they are silent minority, and do not give a damn. They are happy only when they get up in the morning, go to work, and come back home with a six-pack of bear.
Steve Runciman in his book “A History of the Crusades Vol. I” says this: “Unlike Christianity, which preached a peace that it never achieved, Islam unashamedly came with a sword.”
Actually, Christian religion achieved its goal of peace during its first 300+ years of existence until Roman Empire high-jacked it in the early 4th Century AD, and started using it as a tool of terror, oppression, brutality and exploitation until now by its descendants, the Europeans.
Christian religion was and still is a peaceful religion. But after high-jacked by Romans (today’s Europeans) it never achieved peace. The purpose of Christianity was to unite people who were oppressed under the yoke of very brutal and savage Roman Empire, provide them with a strong social strength, so they could survive. Judaism did the same for Jews, but it did not spread beyond Jewish people. But Christianity spread wide and far uniting much of the peoples oppressed by the Romans. Early Christians united, survived, and gained strength in peaceful ways and means during its first 300 years of existence.
During the 4th Century, Emperor Constantine I of declining Roman Empire, realizing its potential as a tool of terror, oppression, brutality and exploitation, converted to Christianity, declared it as the official religion of Romans, outlawed all pagan religions, hijacked Christianity and started using it as a tool of oppression. The high jacked Christianity in the hands of Romans who had all the financial means, war making technology, organizational and military skills of the time became a powerful tool of terrorism, oppressions and exploitation. That’s why, after Roman conversion, Christianity was never able to achieve any peace it always preached about.
Roman Christian converts became unstoppable until Islam was born. Actually, Islam is not much different than Judaism and Christianity.
On the contrary, Islam did not “unashamedly come with a sword.” Islam was born to unite the peoples against Roman savages. It also outlawed all the pagan religions of the Middle East to set up a large and strong self-defense organization, a doctrine, against Roman brutality to stop Roman Christian converts from using peaceful Christianity as a tool of terror, oppression, brutality and exploitation.
Islam was also high-jacked very quickly, instead of being a religion of legitimate self defense against Roman oppression, it quickly became a tool of conquest, oppression and exploitation. Almost all of its followers were forced to convert to Islam, still in may countries and communities most Moslems, if not all, have no other choice, or no real freedom of religion (or no religion at all), even though Quran says “no compulsion”.
Now Christians and Christianity are inching away, even though slowly, from being used as a tool of brutality, oppression and exploitation. But Islam, in the hands of terrorists, but not real Moslems, is still being used as a tool of brutality, oppression and exploitation.
No one person who is disrespectful to human rights and freedoms of fellow human beings is a real, sincere follower of any religion (Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Zoroastrianism, Buda, Hindu, Zen, etc.) Or no real, sincere follower of any religion is or can be disrespectful to the basic human rights and freedoms of fellow human beings regardless.
Therefore, I say, a religion (I believe all religions including pagan religions are good) can not be better than its followers.
