God Is War 

Pin It

Most of the comments marking the 10th anniversary of 9/11 have missed the point. That is, few people are willing to acknowledge the rogue elephant in the room: God’s holy commands.

The Muslims who blow up skyscrapers and become suicide bombers are merely obeying the holy commands of God: Kill non-Muslims (Quran 8:12, 76:4, 3:85). And Christians have been even worse, for similar reasons. Christ said to kill non-Christians (Luke 19:27) and said that He came not to send peace, but a sword (Matthew 10:34). Christ’s commands justify the killing of millions of heretics and witches, the harassing and killing of Jews, the Crusades and the conquest of the New World and parts of Africa and Asia.

When God commanded George W. Bush to invade Iraq, God knew that there were no weapons of mass destruction, that Iraq had nothing whatsoever to do with 9/11, and that the war was based on false pretenses. Another example of God working in mysterious and lying ways.

But the greatest religious mystery of all is why God prefers to burn billions of people in hell, kill millions of people in religious strife and destroy whole nations, instead of simply telling us what the one true religion is.

  • A Strange and Barbaric Practice

    In the well-written City Weekly cover story on circumcision ["Circumcision Decision," Sept. 17], the God of the Jewish, Muslim and Christian religions is credited with beginning this practice: God demands that the 99-year- old Abraham cut off his foreskin in order to prove his loyalty.

  • Mike Noel's Resistance to Reason

    I enjoyed Colby Frazier's cover story about state Rep. Mike Noel, R-Kanab ["The Herd Bull of the House," May 14, City Weekly]. I attended the Great Public Lands Gamble Rally at the Capitol in January 2015, at which Noel audaciously stepped up to the microphone to attempt a refutation (the gospel according to St. Mike) of the "lies" being perpetrated by the proponents of public lands.
