Aren’t You Glad?

It’s Monday night, I’m tired, and there’s only 5 days left in NaBloPoMo. I’m tapped out folks. So tonight I’ll just leave you to ponder the following:

Aren’t you glad you don’t live in a country where you can be arrested for naming a teddy bear “Muhammad“?

Sometimes I wonder what would happen if religious extremists actually read their holy books. Would Muslim extremists turn into peace-loving, altruistic intellectuals? Would Christian extremists turn into humble advocates for the poor and disenfranchised?

Sadly, I doubt we’ll ever know.

    I’ve been reading the Bible since I was 8. What do you think of the outcome?

    I’d say you’re pretty good evidence that if the extremists read their holy books, that is what would happen.
