Violence in the name of Religion

India

Dear friends, Every time I speak about the good points of my country but today I am going to speak about the worst-Communal violence. Christians from the Indian state of Orissa have been the scapegoats of burning hatred there. Well this thing hapenned when A spiritual Hindu leader was gunned down by Maoists, but the hindu fanatic groups saw the Christians as doubtfuls and attacked them. Several methodist, protestant as well as catholic churches and prayer houses were attacked in the communally sensitive Kandhamal district of Orissa. Almost 20 people claimed their lives in the violence. Our pseudo-secular country needs your prayers.

I think killing for anything is crazy, and to do it for religion is just so stupid,if people would just think how all religions state killing is going against their religion then they wouldn't do it, because of all the killings in the name of all the different religions i think people should walk away from them all and listen to what your inner voice says, and your heart and common sense will guide you instead of these stupids books ordinary people are preaching out of, how many different books are there, there can only be one if any of them are for real, so all the others if not all are just books some one has who felr like writing a book has written...I say every one should just live in peace, love one another, help one another and be happy...
