Where is Love … ?

Holy wars … Involving God as part of a war campaign does not make a war a holy war – for a war to be a holy war, religion has to be the driving force.

Modern people often regard the idea of a holy war as a contradiction. Killing thousands of people and causing wholesale destruction seems to be as far from holiness as one can get.  But religion and war have gone hand in hand for a long time. Armies go into battle believing that God is with them, often after prayers and sacrifices to keep God on their side. In tribal cultures (including Biblical ones) when a people lose a war they often have to change to the worship of the winner’s gods.

Why can’t we all just be treated the same?”
