EACH FAITH HAS A FATAL DISEASE | 2002-03-09
As I said, no one today makes the distinction between Jews who were allowed to practice their faith and members of every other non-Christian faith who were burned alive.
No Christian ever expresses any real guilt about the latter, and every Christian has to moan constantly about our treatment of Jews if he is not to be labeled anaziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.
So we refer to Islam as tolerant because it allowed Jews to live but discriminated against them, but Christian Guilt requires us to denounce Christians as Evil because of the same policy.
To the person being burned alive, this distinction was very important. But to a Christian whose life is built on Guilt, it means nothing. The person who calls himself a Christian but whose true religion is nothing but a giant guilt Complex has not the vaguest idea of what real history is about.
Islam does indeed degenerate into a pure terrorist warlike fanaticism. Christianity does indeed tend to degenerate into pure Guilt and total self-hatred.
Jesus said "love others as you love yourself." Christian self-hatred leads straight to a hatred of others.
