ENDING BROTHER WARS
by Bill Joslin
hmmmm…. I thought the whole point of highlighting the lies of Abrahamism was to forever eradicate pitting brothers against each other over religion.
My stance, not that it matters, hinges on the private-public distinction. I don’t care, nor do I proclaim to have authority over what others think or believe in the private sphere. If you want to hold metaphor or allegory as real then I say have at’er- not my business, nor does it impose costs on me if you choose to do so. Further to that, I wouldn’t fault a man for doing so.
However, within the public sphere, these claims will be held to account – FULL ACCOUNT – including, but not limited to, the false claims that Christianity is the essential component to western thriving – it’s simply not. Western thriving did not occur until law and governance were abstracted away from religion into their own respective institutions…
So here’s the deal – until the religious begin reporting truthfully in the public sphere or keep their private assertions private or qualify their public statements about private beliefs; we will continue to prosecute publicly…. that’s all that is going on here – prosecution of public lies – prosecution of private-public conflations.
