Religion And Violence Are Too Often Hand In Glove

Wednesday December 3, 2008
I must respectfully take issue with the claim of Faiza Khan (Letters, December 2) that Islam is clear in condemning violence. In fact, many suras provide a mandate for violence and even murder. Among many examples are "Kill unbelievers wherever you find them", "Believers . . . shall fight for Allah, they will slay and be slain" and "As for the thief . . . cut off their hands".

THERE has been an interesting battle going on in the Asian Cup, not just between the teams from the various countries, but far more importantly, between their chosen deities. For just as the Australian team has quite a few players ever keen to invoke their Lord when things go right - with Mark Viduka and Tim Cahill being inveterate chest-crossers and so forth - so too do the Muslim and Buddhist countries competing have many believers in their own ranks.

Pray The Climate Gods Aren't Churlish

Sunday April 29, 2007
LOOK, if the Man of Steel says "pray for rain", then at number 5 we start praying. We addressed our supplications to the all-purpose God of our childhood and then, to be on the safe side, we sent copies to Yahweh, Allah, Baal, the Rainbow Serpent, the Great Spaghetti Monster and the one that looks like an elephant. That should do the trick.

God Save Us From Those Claiming To Do 'god's Will'

Monday October 31, 2005
SO IAN Harper, head of the Government's proposed Fair Pay Commission, will do "God's will" in his decisions regarding the pay for low-paid workers (The Sunday Age, 30/10). Well, now we really can be frightened: George Bush listens to God and invades Iraq, killing thousands of innocent people; the President if Iran listens to Allah and wants to wipe Israel off the map; the missionaries listened to God and stole Aboriginal children from their parents to make good Christians out of them. Throughout ...
