Garissa University College Massacre

If you weren’t paying attention you may have missed the news that a radical Islamic group from Somali killed about 147 people at Garissa University College in Kenya. Or at least 147 people were dead after all was said and done. The Somalia-based Al-Shabaab militant group claimed responsibility for the assault.

This is the kind of news that we could afford to miss. It’s why so many people don’t follow the news anymore. What’s the point.

Allegedly this group separated the Christians from the Muslims and methodically gunned down the Christians.

What always amazes me about an incident like this is that all these groups PRAY TO THE SAME GOD. That is, the killers and the victims all PRAY TO THE SAME GOD.

If you look at Muslims and Hindus in India and Pakistan, at least you know that those groups don’t pray to the same God. But in the Abrahamic faiths everyone prays to the same God. And yet, historically we’ve had:

  • Christians massacring Jews
  • Christians massacring Muslims
  • Jews massacring Muslins
  • Muslims massacring Christians
  • Muslims massacring Jews

About the only thing we haven’t had much of is Jews massacring Christians. What the fuck?! Muslims even believe that Jesus was a prophet of God. They just don’t believe he was the son of God. And Christians worship the same god — Yahweh, Jehovah, Allah, whatever you want to call him —  that Jews and Muslims do.

It began with the Crusades — of which we had only nine! — and it ain’t over yet. And yet these people all PRAY TO THE SAME GOD.

And people wonder why I’m not a Christian.

People should wonder why I would possibly choose to be a Christian.

God help us all. And clearly there is no God to help us, because any entity deserving of being called divine would have put a stop to this nonsense a long, long time ago. It looks like we’re going to have to help ourselves.

A disturbed citizen and skeptic. I should stop reading the newspaper. Or watching TV. I should turn off NPR and disconnect from the Internet. We’d all be better off.
