Response to Berlum (Original post)

Sun Oct 21, 2012, 12:13 PM

7. Mockery is understandable. For sure.

But just as the concept of Jihad is of central importance to some in the Moslem community, and is the wellspring for some of their actions in the world, in both the Mormon and the Christian realms there are likewise DEVOUT BELIEVERS who do and who will act on their BELIEFS. For better or for worse.

So in my book, mockery is not the appropriate response apocalyptic beliefs, or to destabilizing war-mongering policies and actions which arise out of Apocalyptic fervor.
