Inquisitions and jihads. Why do theists and progressive vote

Postby The Great I am » Sat Jan 19, 2019 2:49 pm

Inquisitions and jihads. Why do theists and progressive voters respect the religions that use them?

I wondered if theists or voters can articulate why they respect those that use such vile concepts of war and respect the Gods or religions that order them carried out.

Genocide, the goal of inquisitions and jihads, has a poor moral component yet theists seem to not care about that as they seek it, nor do tax payers who indirectly assist in paying for them.

I can understand why theists would hate the people they murder. I can also understand why we naturally love war. I cannot understand how tax payers can turn a blind eye to it. Unless we just crave the drama of war.

Given that theists are to love the sinners and hate the sin, inquisitions and jihads seem to suggest that theists hate the sinners and love sin as they use murder to grow their religions, due to not having solid moral arguments and moral tenets to convert others with.

If theists hated sin, and loved the sinners, as God demands, they should not murdering them nor respect the religions that use murder to grow.

I have a hard time understanding why governments and voters would also respect the users of inquisitions and jihads enough to force the non-theists to subsidize those religions with tax breaks.
In a real sense, that makes all of us complicit in murder as we all end in paying for those inquisitions and jihads. Not directly, of course, --- that might upset some, --- but indirectly by contributing to the general funds that all religions consolidate for themselves from all people like you and I.

If Christians and Muslims could change their hate focus from hating sinners to hating the sin and loving the sinner, --- as their creeds say they should, --- do you not think that that would improve relations and reduce conflict worldwide?

Why do theists and the rest of us as tax payers who wish to promote a higher moral standard, give such vile religions respect?

Why do you think theists resist doing as their Gods bids them do? That being, do not kill with inquisitions and jihads.

Regards
DL
