    is as evil as committing the violence yourself.

    What pleasure is there in violence?

    None.

    What practices does your tradition have for purifying thought? Buddhists have the Four Opponent Powers.

    Prayer; meditation, and immersing oneself in good works.

    We have the four opponent powers. The first is the power of regret. If there is any joy in hearing about an enemy being harmed, the first thing is to regret it.

    I would like to also add that the same goes for posting on this forum. What makes it okay for some to be complete assholes when posting?

    Violence is defined as behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something.

    Does killing a chicken count as violent? t would appear so, in which case you've implied my taking pleasure in dinner tonight is evil. Screw you.

    Next.

    Your hero Mohammed said "Behead the Infidel". Nice.
