What the flaming rat FUCK is wrong with people? Why in the hell are we all killing each other? I like religion. I love religion. I think it's a wonderful thing for people to believe in an afterlife, but I don't know what the hell is out there after I die. I don't know what kind of great almighty I'll meet if any after I croak. No one does. Anyone who says they do is fucking deluded. So keeping this in mind, why in the name of creation are people killing each other over religion?
Every religion I've ever read says killing people is wrong. There are a few that have specific regards for criminals, but in general, killing is bad. Let's un-clutter this from law and legality and all the rest. Killing people is bad. I don't care what the reason, it's wrong. Why can't we just hold dear to our hearts the sanctity of all life and live and let live? I had a buddy who was a pacifist and he was convinced that if you believed hard enough, no one would hurt you. Those crazy sick psychotic mother fuckers who hurt people for no reason would miraculously leave you alone. I never had the heart to tell him that he neglected to contemplate the scenario if everyone thought happy thoughts but the big evil men, and the big evil men were driven to hurt people to make them happy, then what happened when they had no "easy" targets, or no targets who weren't thinking happy thoughts. Answer: The people thinking happy thoughts are going to be thinking happy thoughts on the way to hell. You have got to protect yourself and your own, but for pity's sake, why does it have to be that way.
Why can't we all just chill the fuck out, set down all the guns and bombs and missiles and just sit down and fucking work it out fairly. No one has to kill anyone and take their land. No one deserves more than anyone else. No one needs to die to make your point, and sorry boys and girls, if you martyr yourself in the name of God, he'll send you to hell.
Hadith - Qudsi 6 The first of people against whom judgment will be pronounced on the Day of Resurrection will be a man who died a martyr. He will be brought and Allah will make known to him His favours and he will recognize them. [ The Almighty] will say: And what did you do about them? He will say: I fought for you until I died a martyr. He will say: You have lied - you did but fight that it might be said [of you]: He is courageous. And so it was said. Then he will be ordered to be dragged along on his face until he is cast into Hell-fire.
I'm not Muslim, so I could be wrong, but seems to me like everything says if you fight for yourself you will be drug into Hell-fire. It also says that if you die peacefully you are assured a place in heaven.
Abu Dawood 2493, Narrated Abu Malik al-Ash'ari AbuMalik heard the Apostle of Allah (peace be upon him) say: He who goes forth in Allah's path and dies or is killed is a martyr, or has his neck broken through being thrown by his horse or by his camel, or is stung by a poisonous creature, or dies on his bed by any kind of death Allah wishes is a martyr and will go to Paradise
So what's WRONG with that? Why don't we just all get along, be nice to one another, and die happy in our beds and we all go to paradise? Maybe I'm just fucking crazy, but I say we give it a shot. It sounds a whole hell of a lot better than killing each other, and just in case there isn't anything out there in the great here-after, at least we had a nice long life to live, love, laugh, and enjoy.
