Some people claim that God was created in man’s image and likeness. I tend to find this point of view insulting and bordering on the blasphemous—in most cases. However, when bipedal life forms (I hesitate to refer to them as people or humans) slaughter innocent people, screaming “God is great” I think that they’ve attempted to create a god in a likeness that suits them.
I wouldn’t normally speak for God, but I truly believe that if I were the one doing the screaming and killing, I would not be greeted in the next world with, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” I suspect that those responsible for all the death and destruction in pursuit of an Islamic caliphate are in for an unpleasant surprise when they leave this world. Seventy-two virgins? Really? This from a group who believes that rape is a form of prayer. Not just a loophole, but actually prayer.
And what do they expect to accomplish with all their violence? When they attacked Paris, did they believe that the French would roll over and play dead? Do they believe that with enough senseless violence people will be inclined to embrace sharia?
That by killing a planeload of Russian tourists Vladimir Putin will be swayed? Have they ever even read a newspaper story about Putin? Former KGB. Never voted Mr. Congeniality. Not real particular about following international law. Personally I believe he’s “mad as hell, and not going to take it anymore.” Might not have been ISIS’s smartest move.
Bottom line? These wackheads have merely managed to get a whole lot of people pissed off.
And God just might be one of them,
