Sunday Sermon: Comparative Aggression Rates


Rights thought work and knowledge

Although /common sense/ is somewhat of a subjective concept most of us can listen to a speech and determine whether the speaker is

a) generally talking coherently

OR

b) arguing the toss to win the argument, usually on a technicality.

I suggest that you watch the above video and think about what she says.  I think some of her points (example)

We have not seen a single Jew blow himself up in a German restaurant

should make us all think.  And when you have watched the video, let us wind down with this also poignant piece:


Religious Extremists


Which are the most peaceful and tolerant religions?

Jainism
Sam Harris on Jainism


Church of England
Christina Patterson - What I've learnt from religion


Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster
What is the meaning of it all anyway?


Of course whilst Jainism and the today's Church of England are relatively benign they do not compare with the ultimately peaceful and tolerant religion

 The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster

Since the Church of the FSM comes with a 30 day guarantee, well it would seem the height of intolerance not to try it for yourself.   Tastes good.
