    can you judge any religion by the behavior of it's followers? IMO most followers fail to live up to the tenants of their faith.
    many don't even know what is in the books that they swear by. who's fault is this?
    if the religion was really all of that shouldn't it be able to get it's people to actually go by what it says?

    now, the white man has sorely misused christainity for sure. does that make christainity invalid? or the white man?
    shouldn't jesus be able to make those devils act right?
    if he cannot control his own adherents then what good is he?

    IMO, Yes you can and should, because religion as we know it, conflicts with the nature of Man. Most humans function on a foundation of logic and reasoning; most religions don't.

    Then again, blame the messenger, not the message; it didn't concoct itself.

    Peace

    Evil begets Evil.

    To expound on that….

    Confusion begets Confusion.

    Righteousness begets Righteousness.

    p-ower E-quality the A-ll C's E-verything

    you don't judge anyone's religion, you break it down to the foundation of that religion........

    the reason religious people don't go by the edicts of that religion is that sub conciously the people know the relion is wrong, but it takes a strong person to admit that what they have been taught all their life was wrong!
