Holy war: the ultimate blasphemy posted 09 June 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionHoly war: the ultimate blasphemy by AleoMagus, Commoner

Those who claim God approves or foster hatred and killing are nothing but blasphmers.

...and we all know what god says we should do to blasphemers...

Then the LORD said to Moses, "Take the blasphemer outside the camp, and tell all those who heard him to lay their hands on his head. Then let the entire community stone him to death. Say to the people of Israel: Those who blaspheme God will suffer the consequences of their guilt and be punished. Anyone who blasphemes the LORD's name must be stoned to death by the whole community of Israel. Any Israelite or foreigner among you who blasphemes the LORD's name will surely die. (Leviticus 24:10-16 NLT)

Then again, maybe those who claim god approves or fosters killing aren't blasphemers. Maybe they have just been reading and living by the teachings of the bible.
