Foolish Infidels

If anyone secretly entices you–even if it is your brother, your father’s son or your mother’s son, or your own son or daughter, or the wife you embrace, or your most intimate friend– saying, “Let us go worship other gods,” whom neither you nor your ancestors have known,

any of the gods of the peoples that are around you, whether near you or far away from you, from one end of the earth to the other, you must not yield to or heed any such persons. Show them no pity or compassion and do not shield them.

But you shall surely kill them; your own hand shall be first against them to execute them, and afterwards the hand of all the people.

Stone them to death for trying to turn you away


I agree with the Tea Partiers and Neo-Nativists.

Any religion that includes passages such as these
in their Holy Book should be banned from the
United States of America.

These are outdated notions in a world attempting to achieve universal peace and harmony.  Any religion that claims to be
of love and peaceful would recognize that such talk is counter-
productive and would rid itself of such language.

By the way, that passage under the photo is straight
out of the Bible (Deuteronomy 13:6).

A most excellent passage from the New Testament would seem to apply here:

You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.

Jesus of Nazereth

Matthew 7:5

No Conversion, Please: “I believe that there is no such thing as conversion from one faith to another in the accepted sense of the word.      It is a highly personal matter for the individual and his God. I may not have any design upon my neighbour as to his faith, which I must honour even as I honour my own. Having reverently studied the scriptures of the world I could no more think of asking a Christian or a Musalman, or a Parsi or a Jew to change his faith than I would think of changing my own.” (Harijan: September 9, 1935)

All Religions are True: “I came to the conclusion long ago … that all religions were true and also that all had some error in them, and whilst I hold by my own, I should hold others as dear as Hinduism. So we can only pray, if we are Hindus, not that a Christian should become a Hindu … But our innermost prayer should be a Hindu should be a better Hindu, a Muslim a better Muslim, a Christian a better Christian.” (Young India: January 19, 1928)


I wonder how many will have the courage to forward this on to friends and relatives.  ; )  No guilt from me.  Do as you wish.  God won’t hate you.  God won’t love you more.  You won’t get good luck or bad.  No car will come crashing through the front of your house and you won’t go bald or become impotent if you don’t forward this.  You won’t lose your your job, your wife or your dog if you don’t forward this.  You won’t win the lottery or a get laid if you do send it forward.  You’ll simply have forwarded on something for others to think about.

The Heretic

(I sent this out as an email.   I wonder if it will make it back to me someday as a forward.)
