Force Follows Pity

The Christian church extinguished the ancient pagan religion with laws, threats and fears; tools still used today to productive effect. Will these ancient and practiced tools of impression ever pale in the light of the real benefit faith? Can a monotheistic religion ever feel secure in its position and future among the populace if another religion exists? It can not, and when conversion is not sufficient for the rapine of spiritual drives, force must be used, and where fear fails, the followers of a different God must be forcibly reminded of their folly.

“Would you let a blind man walk into the street? Certainly not! You would stop him, by words at first, but by force if necessary. To do otherwise would be to fail in your duty to love your neighbor as yourself, and speaking for myself, ‘I don’t want to be run over in the street’.”
Evangelical Pastor

Monotheism demands uniformity of religious thought. The “us” and “them” of humanity become partisan and divided by any difference considered significant by the currently reigning clergy. The historical evidence that these opinions change throughout history rarely deters the current sensibilities from stamping themselves eternal and looking with pity on the poor misguided souls living in the darkness of a different opinion.
