I'm so sick of this awful feeling that we are being forced into a world conflagration [View all]

on the backs of religious zealotry. Every fundamentalist group among the big religions appear hellbent on making certain that political alliances devolve to the basest level. I'm disgusted beyond belief. At this point, the death counts don't matter anymore nor do the affiliations. What does matter is it appears that very little effort is being put foward to meaningful resolution of any of these conflicts. There is no peace process anywhere. There is no will to find ways to resolve grievances. There are too many silent people who only respond when there is a tragedy or a crisis. I will not participate in justifying the slaughter of people by any group who claims religion as a justification--any. I will call out people for zealotry and bigotry based on religion. Not one group among the monotheistic traditions of the earth is more worthy than the other two or deserving of a superior place among humankind.
