The ignorance of the irreligious

Damien Walters is very poorly read:

Dear religious folks. All of your prophets agreed on one thing, DON’T KILL PEOPLE. Start listening, stop killing. Yours, Damo.

Oh, did they now?

  • “Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites” – Exodus 17:9
  •  “Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and
    women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.” – 1st Samuel 15:3
  • “Then Elijah commanded
    them, “Seize the prophets of Baal. Don’t let anyone get away!” They
    seized them, and Elijah had them brought down to the Kishon Valley and slaughtered there.” – 1st Kings 18:40
  • “It is not for any Prophet to have captives until he has made slaughter in the land.” – Sura 8:67  

One wonders what prophets he has in mind, considering the words of Moses, Samuel, Elijah, and Mohammed. The truth is that the religious understand that there is always “a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build”

It is really astonishing how pig-ignorant these guys are, especially considering that they tend to consider themselves to be the well-educated side.
