Al, you are just spreading rumors now. Everyone knows he is a PM guy!

Ben is a bright man, no doubt about it. However, it is not like religion (of all types) is without their own issues and histories of war, abuse, and terror. I am sure he means well, and I know what he is saying, but the answer is deeper and more complex. For example, the people who flew planes into the WTC probably thought they were doing god’s work. I dont mean to offend, but religion can/has been twisted thru history, with often tragic results. Evil people will seek out whatever excuses or justifications they can to help them accomplish their goals.

I typically would not participate in religious type discussions. I think everyone should be free to worship as they may please. If everyone followed and practiced the ideals that are put forth in the bible or other relgious books, the world would probably be a better place. However, those messages, in the wrong hands can be disasterous. I dont mean to touch off a religious debate, because I think Ben makes some good points. I would just say there are so many complex issues at work today in the world today, that there will be no simple or easy solutions. Which is sad.
