"Thu shalt not murder", "Turn the other cheek", "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" are phrases i think everyone have heard of at one point or another, and if you are christian you should be intimately familiar with them.
These are some very basic cornerstones in the christian religion as well as other religions. But from what i can see a quite shockingly big part of people who claim to be religious do not abide by these rules. The people im talking about are people who want revenge, who believe in capital punishment, people who think that civilian casualties are acceptable in war or otherwise and those who think that stripping people of their basic rights without proof of anything is fine.
Now, im not here to argue any of these standpoints if the phrases first mentioned are not part of your belife or if you dont have a belife. But if you are a christian, does not the opinions mentioned seriously conflict with your religion?
I dont know if there is anyone who fits in to that category here, but it seems to me that there is a lot of them out in the world, if anything christians seems more agressive then non-religios persons to me, which makes no sense. Then again i might be the only one that perceive it in that manner. So what do think? Or why do think this is?
