Religion of tolerance

http://www.compassdirect.org/en/news...idelement=4035

Quote:
October 20 (Compass) – Christians in a remote village of Uzbekistan are being beaten, publicly humiliated and hounded out of their homes and jobs for converting to Christianity.

Kaldibek Primbetov, leader of the beleaguered group of Protestants in Janbashkala village, near Turtkul in southwestern Uzbekistan, said one man is orchestrating this harsh opposition against their small congregation.

“There is no place here for Christians,” Primbetov was warned two years ago, when the village’s most wealthy and influential man mounted a vicious campaign against fewer than 100 Protestant believers.

“Our whole population here is Muslim,” village strongman Tokhtabay Sadikov told the families who had converted to Christianity. “So you’d better go to Kazakhstan or Russia, if you want to be Christians.”
I didn't see him say, "Our whole population here is exterist muslim", but I am sure that is what was ment.

Quote:
In one late-night attack, Sadikov’s son Makset came to his house with several other men, thrashing Primbetov and his brother in a drunken rage and breaking their windows. Producing a 20-liter can of gas, the attackers demanded, “Accept Islam right now, or we will set your house on fire.”

No surprise, there will always be zealous people to their perspective religions. However, as long as they dont threaten anyone on a global scale, not many people with the power to do something will get involved.

Not to much different than when the Spanish built the missions, and told the Mexicans to convert to Christianity or die. We tried that on American indians too back in the day. The Germans didn't even give the Jews a choice of conversion, they just killed them.

Further proof that religion is the most destructive force known to man.

Why not? It just proves we're no better than the Muslims. They will slaughter innocent people in the name of God, just like we have done.

Any religion will drive people insane if it becomes the sole reason for thier existence.

Zealous people often take their religions literally. That being the case, they don't have the same kind of logic I, you, or most people you know use.
