I was thinking, (something I have an uncontrollable propensity to do), about how all religions claim to be peaceful, but all seem to condone murder (with the exception of Janists). Not only in their religious texts, but also in their literature. In the Chronicals of Narnia, the first time the children meet Aslan, he teaches them to kill. And lets not even discuss the "Left Behind" series. It has been my general experience that when someone tells you how loving, wonderful, and peaceful their religion is; when you reply: "Well, that's fine for you, but for me it's illogical, irrational, unreasonable, and impossible.", they want to kill you. Is murder an intrinsic principle of religion? Does belief in god validate murder as an acceptable response to unacceptable situations? God, after all kills with impunity.
