Ive been reading books that compare and contrast different religions. I have read the Torah, the New Testament, and the Koran. Ive read the history of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Im amazed that each group from time to time in the name of its religion has perpetrated so much evil. Jews slaughtered Canaanites, Philistines, and other indigenous peoples (men, women and even children) in the land that God was to give to them. To find evils done by Christians, one can easily look up Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition and Manifest Destiny. Finally, there are the militant Islamic terrorist organizations. Yet, people of these 3 religions have done some good. Each of the 3 religions has its charities. There are many generous Jewish organizations. One of my favorites is the Jewish Communal Fund. There are many generous Christian organizations. Look up Christians Organizations WorldWide. Yes, there are even many generous Islamic charities. Simply look up Islamic Relief Worldwide. One might argue that each religions Holy Book advocates war against peaceful non-believers. I dont see that to be the case. There are instances in which one may be able to pull a few phrases or even sentences out of context and interpret them in such a way as to advocate intolerance. Yet, as I read the books as a whole, I concluded that, in general, each book called ultimately for peaceful coexistence. At any rate, I am not going to pick religious sides and fight. Why cant we all just get along?
