“God Has No Religion”- Gandhi. Question: Why Should We?

 Gandhi probably meant God does not  favor or follow any organized religion.

QUESTION:

Why should WE favor or follow any organized religion?

THINK, if we didn’t  have religion, we would not have had:

**  The Crusades , where Christians burned alive Jews and Muslims together in Jerusalem.

**  The Inquisition, which lasted over 400 years.

**  The Salem witch hangings.

**  The “30 year War” between Protestants and Catholics

**  The violence and killings in Ireland between Catholics and Protestants.

**  The conflict between Hindus and Moslems, in India, including the formation of two states, India and Pakistan.

**  The assassination of the source of the above quote “God has no Religion”, Mahatma Ghandi.

**  The killings in Iraq between Sunnis and Shias.

**  The killings in Afghanistan between Sunnis and Shias.

**  The Holocaust.

**  The turmoil presently in the Mid-East between Israel and Palestine.

**  The possible war between Israel, the United States, and Iran.

 

If there were no organized religion, none of the above would have happened.

Think of it. None of the above.

“This is my simple religion. There is no need for temples; no need for complicated philosophy. Our own brain, our own heart is our temple; the philosophy is kindness.”   Dalai Lama

More violence has occurred in the name of religion than for any other reason.”  Deepak Chopra in New York Times Bestseller “The Book of Secrets”

Religion is something we can perhaps do without.” – Dalai Lama From his book   Ethics for the New Millennium

The Dalai Lama and Deepak Chopra quotes are contained in the new book by Samuel Butler, “Beyond All Religion”. 

 “The liberty of man is not safe in the hands of any church. Wherever the Bible and sword are in partnership, man is a slave.”  Robert Green Ingersoll, in Some Mistakes of Moses:III: The Politicians

About beyondallreligion

Samuel Butler, Author: BEYOND ALL RELIGION Most all religions are based upon a bedrock of lies. Christianity was invented by Emperor Constantine , for political purposes, based upon the myth of Mithra, a Persian savior god born on December 25 , son of a virgin. Mithra performed miracles and was later crucified. Pope Leo X (died 1521) called Christ a “Fable”. Later Pope Paul III expressed similar sentiments. Moses is based on the Sumerian life and legends of Sargon I, King of Akkad, “set in a basket of rushes and “cast into the river”. Egyptians kept exhausting hieroglyphic records. There is a complete absence of any record of Moses leading over 600,000 men, women and children away from Pharaoh’s army. Joseph Smith, founder of Mormonism, was convicted in a court of Law of being an “impostor”, today a fraud, con man, in 1826. He wrote the Book of Mormon soon after. Question: You decide: Does the text of the verses of the Qur’an correspond exactly to those revealed to Muhammad directly as the words of God, delivered to Muhammad through the angel Gabriel, as claimed?
