‘The 3AW Drive program, presented by Tom Elliott, was told the priest then said that if Ms Meagher had been “more faith-filled” she “would have been home in bed” and “not walking down Sydney Rd at 3am” when she was raped and murdered by Bayley in September 2012.’
Sure, when there is separation between the State and Christianity, Christianity does not commit as many atrocities as it used, before the split. Because it lacks the power, not the will…
Many nice Christians I’ve met are genuinely good people – as are many nice Muslims I’ve met.
Christians are always stressing that theirs is a religion of love and inclusion and everything that is nice and non violent – and I am certain that they honestly believe it.
But the clerics know better.
The clerics are required to study their Holy Scriptures and believe what it says in them, regardless of the public mask worn in public. And, every now and then, that mask slips…revealing the ugly truth beneath: Christianity is, at its core, very misogynistic and just as destructive as every other religion.
Please, do give this some thought: I do not write this lightly or reflexively.
Christianity is not the love-fest many Christians seem to think it is. Biblical morality is deeply flawed. After all, Muhammad had been a Christian convert and got much of his morality from Biblical teachings. Sure, he built on them, from his own predilections, but there are common seeds shared between all three Abrahamic religions and, every now and then, we can glimpse the underlying truth…
…and I, for one, do not like what lies there!
