I also love the lyrics to "Onward Christian Soldiers". I truly wonder what Jesus would say about them . And I think Eric Burden did well with "Sky Pilot"

So many sacrileges done in Jesus' name. And also in Mohammed's and The Buddha's, and Gandhi's, and every other peaceful messiah's.

That's awesome you were Golden Gloves. Where at? I myself love boxing for the same reasons I love great music. The communication, the dance. I'm not much of a boxer myself, I mess around in the backyard every once in a while, but I'm much to portly, and having just quit smoking cigarettes, I'm just now starting to be able to seriously consider bettering myself as far as boxing goes. I do love watching boxing, though, I'm not a fanatic and I don't really keep up with the fighters. I really enjoy watching the classic fights. Louis, Robinson, Ali, Marciano, even Tyson. He was an animal in his day.

Of course crusades.. but you don't think that bombing 911 doesn't have religious undertones? the reason were in Iraq? If they were Christians we wouldn't be there... Helping the Jews in Israel? They live in constant fear of there lives.. if they were the same religion as those around them would it be different? yes.. I can go on and on..

We are not in Iraq because W is a Christian or because Iraq is not a Christian nation. We are there either for oil, WMD's or revenge against Saddam for the plot against Bush Sr, or whatever other reason but our religion does not have anything to do with it.

Islamic aggression definitely has religious undertones to it.

Typically, US wars do not have religious undertones. From the Revolutionary War to present, religion is not the base of the wars. Most religious wars from centuries past are because of the nature of the Catholic Church in Europe and the mixing of political and religious power in Europe.

The Palestine-Israel conflict of course has religion behind it, in fact understanding religion is essential to understanding the conflict. There are issues there about how Islam calls for its adherents to deal with those that do not agree with their religious views. Judaism and Christianity do not call for us to kill the unbeliever.

I was basing my opinions on the fact that a lot of the wars do not have to be a christian thing. Other religions fight over there causes too.

I believe if the middle east was not full of Islam nations that We would not be their plain and simple. I understand the whole WMD's and Oil.. but its not hard to see the religious differences of us and them...

Sorry Ewing.

I knew you'd been here a long time...and had been in some "trouble" around here, but I didn't know why.

Until today.

But "they" didn't break your wild-spirit completely...and I'm thankful for that.

I see now why we no longer allow religious threads. And just so this won't restart, I'm nailing it down.
